If you haven’t heard of Stephen Tobolowsky, you’ve probably seen him in one of the 200-plus roles he has acted for film and television (Stu Baggs on Californication, Ned Ryerson in Groundhog Day, and Sammy Jankis in Memento, to name a few). But Hollywood isn’t this man’s only claim to fame. When he isn’t busy acting, he’s telling true stories from his life on the hit podcast The Tobolowsky Files, which range from playing in a band with a young Stevie Ray Vaughan to his experiences at casting calls and working with filmmakers including Spike Jonze, Paul Verhoeven, and Harold Ramis. Tonight, he comes to Brooklyn for an intimate storytelling session, in which he’ll share some of his most memorable moments. Prepare to become addicted.
