Adventures with God: Stephen Tobolowsky

You may not know Stephen Tobolowsky by name, but you probably know his face. He has appeared in over 100 movies and over 200 television shows – from Mississippi Burning, Thelma and Louise, Deadwood and Glee to the comedy classic Groundhog Day, to current hits Silicon Valley and The Goldbergs.

In addition to being a character actor, Tobolowsky is the consummate storyteller. He first showcased his skills in the popular podcast The Tobolowsky Files and then in his first book, The Dangerous Animals Club.

With My Adventures with God, Tobolowsky offers a funny, introspective story collection about love, catastrophe and triumph that, in turn, describe his evolving relationship with the mystery that we call “God.”

As Tobolowsky explains, “It’s hard to believe in nothing. Even cats believe in suppertime. As much as we love certainty, we are often shaped by the invisible, the unexplainable—something we call faith. We are inclined to acknowledge the holy. Even if it is only a paper heart we find in an old suitcase.”

Tobolowsky’s stories tell of a boy growing up in the wilds of Texas, finding and losing love, losing and finding himself—all told through the prism of the Torah and Talmud. Book signing to follow.
