Neil Gaiman & Chuck Lorre Join Forces in Featured Session @ SXSW Interactive Festival

Saturday, March 9th, 2013

Start Time: 03:30PM    End Time: 05:30PM

Worlds collide when the creator of The Big Bang Theory meets the author of The Sandman at South by Southwest (SXSW)! Top TV comedy hitmaker Chuck Lorre (Two and a Half Men, The Big Bang Theory, Mike & Molly) will make his SXSW debut onstage with best-selling author Neil Gaiman (Coraline, Stardust, the acclaimed comic book series The Sandman) during a featured session at the 2013 SXSW® Interactive Festival.

“Chuck Lorre: In Conversation with Neil Gaiman” will take place on Saturday, March 9, at 3:30 p.m. in Dell Hall of the Long Center and brings together two of the most accomplished writers in entertainment for a wide-ranging discussion about the creative process.

Gaiman will interview Lorre about the challenges of keeping three of the most successful shows on television running and the stories behind Lorre’s original, opinionated and often controversial end-of-show “vanity cards” — a curated selection of which were recently published in his new book, What Doesn’t Kill Us Makes Us Bitter.

Lorre is donating all of his proceeds from What Doesn’t Kill Us Makes Us Bitter to charity.

Interest in the book was so great that Simon & Schuster went back for an immediate reprint to keep up with demand.

Veering from philosophical treatises to personal revelations to the occasional furious diatribe while never shying away from controversy, Lorre’s What Doesn’t Kill Us Makes Us Bitter reveals a hilarious, thought-provoking and scandalous body of work unlike any other creative endeavor.

All of Lorre’s proceeds from the sale of What Doesn’t Kill Us Makes Us Bitter will benefit the Dharma-Grace Foundation, established by Lorre in 1999 to further his ongoing support of many health care–related charities and educational efforts, including the Venice (Calif.) Family Clinic — the largest free medical clinic in the country, dedicated to providing free, quality health care to people in need.
