John Hodgman

On a recent visit to Amoeba Hollywood in support of his current book, That Is All,  funny man John Hodgman found some time to entertain our cameras and give us an inside look at what tickles his fancy. Much like his role as The Daily Show's "Resident Expert," Hodgman gives us the low down on several films and artists including, Island of Lost Souls, Cabin In the Woods, AC Newman and Megafaun. He offers up a hilarious trade in deal to all Amoeba customers that involves John Tesh's A Romantic Christmas and Jonathan Coulton & John Roderick's One Christmas At A Time.
