Hollywood’s Most Sought-After Party Crasher Hits Up
BOOK SOUP for a Reading of His Comedic Memoir!

Uninvited: Confessions of a Hollywood Party Crasher
THURSDAY, JAN 23 at 7:00 P.M.



Former LA Times reporter Adrian Maher will tell tales of his hilarious celebrity run-ins as an undercover observer, along with risky crasher tactics and more from his new comedic memoir, Uninvited: Confessions of a Hollywood Party Crasher (Chicago Review Press).  He is likely to spice up anecdotes about his encounters with Clint, Cate, Arnold, Gwyneth, McCartney, Yoko, Jane Fonda and Jennifer Aniston with some of the 25 accents and celebrity impressions he performs in the audiobook version.  

His uproarious stories culled from 20 years’ experience as an A-List-event interloper and social anthropologist make Uninvited a raucous everyman’s journey behind the palace gates. It’s an exploration of the bizarre subculture of Hollywood’s party crasher network and a heartfelt personal story centered on the universal need to belong.

“Aided by a Halloween gallery of fellow rogues and adrenaline junkies, Adrian Maher takes us on a joyous romp through backstage Hollywood dodging security, public relations flacks, and… face to face with Clint, Hef, Arianna, and the rest of Tinseltown’s high and mighty. Deliciously subversive.” 

– Senior Reporter James Rainey, Los Angeles Times


Uninvited: Confessions of a Hollywood Party Crasher is a fascinating comedic memoir by an ex-journalist feeling adrift after industry-wide layoffs who goes undercover with a colorful network of eccentric gatecrashers who insert themselves nightly into Hollywood’s most exclusive social events. It’s a never-before-told tale of a deeply entrenched group of adventurers, poseurs and adrenaline junkies and their outrageous antics and encounters with the rich and famous. Uninvited brims with insider stories of harrowing side-door entrances, infiltrator tools and tactics, imposters, and surreal backstage interactions with celebs.
