After cutting their teeth in sketch comedy shows around the country, from Upright Citizen’s Brigade to Dallas Comedy House, improv comedians Nick Scott and Noa Gavin have joined forces to debut their sci-fi YA comedy novel, Practical Applications for Multiverse Theory (trade paperback, April 19, 2016) — a phantasmagoria of humor, fright and all-too-familiar high school angst.
Kim Bongiorno, New York Times best-selling co-author of I Just Want To Pee Alone, calls the book “a fun, imaginative, you-never-know-what’s-going-to-happen-next high school adventure.”
Carson High School seniors Scott and Davey don’t have much common ground—that is, until all universes begin collapsing into their school. Soon, the avowed loner and the mean-girl cheerleader realize that something is very wrong (demon teachers, cowboy sloths, students in flames), and they’re the only two who are aware of what’s happening. Armed with little more than school supplies and Scott’s trusty copy of The NEW Multiverse Theory, can these unlikely heroes put their differences aside and stop the total chaos?
For fans of John Dies At The End and Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Practical Applications for Multiverse Theory is a perfect balance of hilarity, surrealism and suspense–a page turner that will appeal to everyone from nerds to the popular kids.
Nick Scott writes and lives in Dallas, Texas. When he isn’t improvising at Dallas Comedy House, he is working on training his dog to ghostwrite for him. It’s not going well.
Noa Gavin was chosen as BlogHer’s Best Humor Voice of the Year in 2011 and as one of the 100 Dallas Creatives for the Dallas observer. She assumes these awards were given to her as wild jokes.
