An Evening with Busy Philipps
Live Talks Los Angeles
About Busy Philipps
Busy Philipps is an actress best known for roles in cult TV classics like "Freaks and Geeks," "Dawson’s Creek," "Cougar Town," "ER," and most recently HBO’s "Vice Principals." She has appeared in fan-favorite films such as "Made of Honor," "I Don’t Know How She Does It," "He’s Just Not That Into You," "White Chicks," and "The Gift." She also was one of the writers of the hit film "Blades of Glory" and host of late-night talk show "Busy Tonight" on E!.
Her new book, "This Will Only Hurt a Little," showcases Philipps' wry wit, skillful storytelling, and an unvarnished perspective that is by turns vulnerable and self-assured. From (in her mom’s one-of-a-kind words) “acing out in her nudes” as an already headstrong two-year-old, through painful and painfully funny teenage years in Scottsdale, Arizona, to finding her voice and her place as a working actress, wife, mother, and fiercely loyal friend, Busy’s reflections on life, love, and making a living are smart and refreshingly honest.
