While promoting his new book (Mr. Funny Pants) actor and comedian Michael Showalter gave Stacked Up a peek at his library.

The founding member of The State and star of Wet Hot American Summer had a long and varied reading list. Highlights included: Manhunt: The 12-Day Chase for Lincoln’s Killer by James L. Swanson, The Official Preppy Handbook edited by Lisa Birnbach, and Final Cut : Art, Money, and Ego in the Making of Heaven’s Gate, the Film That Sank United Artists by Steven Bach.

Here’s more from the site: “Stacked Up TV thinks writers are rock stars. A mashup of MTV’s Cribs, Oprah’s Book Club and The Paris Review, each five-minute Stacked Up episode features one of your favorite writers giving an insider’s tour of his or her library. We’ve found the best way to know writers is by the books they keep.”
