Man Behind the Madness

Are you a fan of no pants subway rides? Fascinated by viral videos of a ‘frozen’ Grand Central Station?

Come hear from Charlie Todd, the man behind the madness and creator of NYC’s Improv Everywhere, today at 12:30pm in the Reading Room. He’ll be speaking about his new book, Causing a Scene, Extraordinary Pranks in Ordinary Places with Improv Everywhere,and taking audience questions as part of BP’s Word for Word Author program.

If you can’t make it to the event but have a burning question for Charlie Todd, let us know on Twitter @BryantParkNYC before 12:30pm. We’ll ask him some of the best questions we get!

Update: A Twitter follower wanted to know where Charlie Todd got the idea for the ‘High Five Escalator’ prank. His answer: it stemmed from Improv Everywhere’s goal to bring some fun and smiles to situations that may generally make people unhappy. High fives on your morning commute = good start to the day!
