YOU CAN’T BE SERIOUS

The Adventures of Playing a Stoner and Working for a President

by Penn, Kal

Kal Penn has never been the type to follow rules. As the son of immigrant parents, he was expected to take the prescribed path of “doctor, lawyer, or accountant”—and then turned all of that on its head when he decided to pursue acting. Eventually, Penn became a famous face known for roles in Harold & Kumar and House M.D. But when he started volunteering with the Obama campaign in 2008, Penn realized his passion for politics ran just as deep as his love of acting. In this memoir, Penn shares the story of his unusual path, reflecting on the bizarre, unlikely, and inimitable moments that have shaped his career. From his early experiences with racist casting directors to being called out by the First Lady for technology gaffes, YOU CAN’T BE SERIOUS is an honest take on ambition, success, and what it means to define your own American dream.
