Video Killed the Cartooning Star

Pearls is syndicated by United Feature Syndicate. Rather than ask them to help me promote my next book, I traveled to Kansas City to visit my syndicate’s rival, Universal Press Syndicate, and tried to get THEM to endorse my book.

  1. Omigosh that is the funniest thing I have seen in YEARS! You have a piglike relationship with your mom. 🙂
    Did you get bleep happy half way through?

  2. OMG that is so brazen and hilarious!!!!!!! Absolutely loved, loved, LOVED it!!! after it was over I immediately went to Amazon and preordered Pearls Sells Out, and I must say that I loved seeing the Snoopy plush on the shelf right next to Rat on the cover. My 10 year old is going to be threw the roof when I tell him tomorrow, he is almost a bigger fan of the strip then I am…. Keep up the most excellent work it is greatly appreciated

  3. I really hope none of this was an act, Pastis . . . and I would LOVE to hear the reactions of Tattuli and Thompson after dropping their books off the desk🙂

  4. That is brilliant – a funny video and great marketing for your book.

    Is that really John Glynn? He was a good sport to play along.

  5. I laughed when you wanted to make you entrance look more “natural” and came out from behind that plant. You have too much time on your hands =P. Maybe you should use that time to make more videos.

  6. Ha ha that was hilarious! Can tell you’re a big fan of Ricky Gervais🙂

  7. Ah, Mr. Pastis you are indeed as funny in person as you are in your comic strip!

  8. Stephan, I hate to be the bearer of bad news,😦, but I don’t think that John Glynn likes you very much.

  9. Clearly, you’ve never had to try and convince your Japanese mother to endorse your work. I’m still in therapy from my last attem…*ahem* Hi Mom! I’m just kidding! Really!

  10. Hilarious. Who was that who popped you in the nose? Was that Bill Amend?

  11. Your new book comes out in August? Wooowhoo! Thats the same month as my birthday! Maybe I can talk my folks into getting me that for my birthday. =D (And was that a Guard Duck plushie I saw? ^^ )

    Anywho, I just got though watching the recording of your live webcast from the other day before this. I gotta say, you are funny as hell to watch! If you had a series of web videos like how some folks on the internet do (ThatGuyWithTheGlasses and the Angry Video Game Nerd to name a few) I would watch it all the time! Plus, just think of all of the free advertising you can do for your strip….

  12. Hey why don’t you just schlep it on over to King Features next? Well, after you glue it back together.

  13. Yay, a new treasury! I love the comments in them. 😀

    I don’t think you should be ducking into the frame from under the desk… people will talk about what lengths you’re going through to get people to promote your book…

  14. Awesome video. I wish more cartoonists would do this stuff.

    I guess you are truely ahead of your time.

    Looking forward to the treasury!

  15. you my friend are a few bananas short of a fruitshake. you poor, poor fruitshake. Best Video Eva!

  16. Ok bob da croc, quit stealin my lines! given, they are totally awesome. I think you guys really did build up your chemistry after that video. You know its funny when everybody in the house thinks you’re watching comedy central.
