Michael Ian Black is not only one of the funniest and most genius comic minds in show business, but he is now becoming one of it’s most prolific NY Times Bestselling Authors as well!  He is one of Kade Nation’s favorite guests, and every time I get the chance to sit down with him, I find myself in tears from laughter because his mind works so fast that it’s almost impossible to keep up.

He has now released a new book “America, You Sexy Bitch”, co-authored with MSNBC’s Meghan McCain (Daughter of Senator John McCain), which features them travelling cross country and defining that politics, beliefs, and values aren’t as far apart in this country as we may think (or maybe they are). This sums up the book perfectly:

“She is a single, twenty-something, gun-loving, Christian, Republican writer and blogger, the daughter of a Senator and 2008 Republican presidential nominee. He is a married, forty-year-old, gun-fearing, atheist, Democrat comedian, the son of a lesbian former Social Security employee. Meghan McCain and Michael Ian Black barely knew each other. But they are about to change the way politics is discussed in America.

In America, You Sexy Bitch, Meghan and Michael embark on a balls-out, cross-country tour starting in California, the heart of liberal America, and ending in the state of Connecticut, the home of blue-blood Wall Street billionaires. Along the way, they visit such cultural touchstones as Graceland and Branson, party in Las Vegas and New Orleans, pretend to be Mormon in Salt Lake City (only for a second), and go to a mosque in Dearborn, Michigan. They tour the nation’s capital; they fire semiautomatic weapons. But mostly Meghan McCain and Michael Ian Black talk to each other: about their differences, their similarities, and how American politics has gotten so divided.”

Here “The King Of Kamelot” sits down with the brilliantly hilarious Michael Ian Black in Bryant Park, NYC to talk about his cross country journey with Meghan McCain (She was on Chelsea Lately last night!) and the common and un-common ground they found in “America, You Sexy Bitch”, the various things they agreed and disagreed on during the trip, how they came up with the idea to write this book and it’s subsequent pitch meeting, being on Late Night With David Letterman with Justin Bieber, the new movie he his filming his his Stella co-creators, why he has blonde hair, and soo much more!!  Michael is always one of my favorite guests so enjoy Kade Nation!!  An enormous thank you to Susie Sigel for the accommodations and help!
