It later became the successful movie, starring Alec Baldwin. His subsequent books, including “Dry” about his battle with addiction, was also an instant success. He is a popular guest on TV talk shows, and his writings have appeared in top publications and newspapers around the world. He has been twice voted to Entertainment Weekly’s “Funniest People in America.”
