David Letterman Talks Autographs with Tom Dreesen

Tom Dreesen is one of the most under-rated comedians of all-time. He and I have stayed in touch after I interviewed him for Autograph Magazine, and I feel blessed to have heard so many great stories from him over the years.…

Ha Ha, Kate Hudson!

I'm a huge Black Crowes fan (I wrote about them, and White Stripes, in a column years ago).

Crowes singer Chris Robinson is a tough autograph to get. He'll sign, but just a few as he's walking by.

One time, his pregnant wife -- actress Kate Hudson -- was at the show. Now, I was once standing next to Kevin Bacon's actress wife at a concert (can't think of her name at the moment). She was dancing the night away.

Hudson wasn't dancing, and I thought…

Interesting Autograph Stuff -- Football/Baseball

In one scene, Michael Cera is on the set of a movie being filmed and is in awe of the former pro skateboarder turned A-list movie star (with the last name "Lee"...making me think of Jason Lee).

This guy ends up coming up to Cera, who is talking on the set. Just as Cera is asking for his…

Latest Movie Autograph -- WINNEBAGO MAN

A pretty funny and interesting documentary out right now. It's about a guy (John Rebney) that made some Winnebago commercials/instructional videos, and the outtakes became a huge internet sensation.

This because he was fond of getting mad and cursing. It was summer, and 100 degrees in Iowa, where the filming took place.

Anyway, at a film festival, he is asked to take pictures and sign autographs. But what is funny is, his best friend is driving him there, since…
