"My name is Tucker Max, and I am an asshole."
Tucker Max is a comedy author, movie producer and internet blogger. Known primarily for his "fratire" writing style, mostly regaling his own exploits, he is most famous for his first book, I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell
, which was made into a movie.
Most of his writing centers around his various exploits in chasing women, drinking, or having crazy adventures with a mix of both. His later works explored how his fame from his earlier works increased the opportunities to do all of these.
A graduate of the University of Chicago and later earning a Judiciary Doctorate from Duke University, he chose not to persue a career in law in favor of his burgeoning writing career, which started on his exploits blog at tuckermax.com. As his blog and his crazy stories became hugely popular, he eventually rewrote and expanded on many of his most popular stories into Hell
in 2006, which became a surprise success and NY Times bestseller.
He would follow up with three more books and additionally adapt Hell
into a full-length movie. After the movie failed to gain much success and his own lifestyle had changed from what had made him famous (and thus, running out of stories to tell), he announced his retirement, although he still does speaking engagements and is working on an advice book.
Tucker wrote the following books:
- The Definitive Book of Pick-Up Lines
- Belligerence and Debauchery: The Tucker Max Stories
- I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell (made into a 2010 movie)
- Assholes Finish First
- Hilarity Ensues
- Sloppy Seconds: The Tucker Max Leftovers
