The Sherman Foundation Salutes: Toby Young



Here are just a few reasons why:

He opened and immediately ended an interview with the humorless Nathan Lane by asking "Are you Jewish?" followed by "Are you gay?"

(Harvey Weinstein one gave Nathan Lane a bitch slapping. :)
( Read: Down and Dirty Pictures)

He wore a t-shirt featuring a picture of bare chested Keanu Reeves and text that read: "Young, dumb and full of come".

He wrote a hilarious tell-all about his failure to make it as a writer at Vaity Fair called How to Loose Friends and Alienate people. You can listen to audio of this book, available free, on his website. It is being released in weekly installments as a promotion for his new book The Sound of No Hands Clapping.

The release party for his book was in New York last week. gawkier reports that a fight broke out.

Toby Young will be in NYC at the Barnes and Nobel on 6th Av on July 17. 7PM.
