Sh*t My Dad Says: From Twitter Feed to William Shatner

Complete video at: http://fora.tv/2010/06/08/Justin_Halpern_Shit_My_Dad_Says Justin Halpern, the man behind the Twitter feed-turned-book Sh*t My Dad Says, recalls the negotiations leading up to the feed's next incarnation: a CBS sitcom. Halpern marvels at William Shatner's similarity to his father, who Shatner plays in the upcoming series. ----- After being dumped by his longtime girlfriend, twenty-eight-year-old Justin Halpern found himself living at home with his seventy-three-year-old dad. Sam Halpern, who is "like Socrates, but angrier, and with worse hair," has never minced words, and when Justin moved back home, he began to record all the ridiculous things his dad said to him. More than a million people now follow Mr. Halpern's philosophical musings on Twitter, and in this book, his son weaves a brilliantly funny, touching coming-of-age memoir around the best of his quotes. An all-American story that unfolds on the Little League field, in Denny's, during excruciating family road trips, and, most frequently, in the Halperns' kitchen over bowls of Grape-Nuts, Sh*t My Dad Says is a chaotic, hilarious, true portrait of a father-son relationship from a major new comic voice. - Warwick's Books Justin Halpern is the founding editor of the comedy website HolyTaco.com and a senior writer at Maxim.com. Halpern created the Twitter page "Shit My Dad Says," which boasts more than a million followers, and is cowriting and coproducing a sitcom adaptation for CBS.
