About the Author
More About the Author
He is the former editor of a men's lifestyle site. He is also a stand-up comic who has taken the stage and performed at Gotham Comedy Club, The Stand and New York Comedy Club. One of his tweets was christened as one of the funniest jokes of 2013 by The New York Post, which is better than being in paper for, say, doing something really dumb, offensive, or that comes with any sort of jail time, right?
If the New York Post editorial staff "gets" him and his humor, chances are you will, too.
Illuminati isn't afraid to put it all out there and let it all hang out, with the "it" being his personal experience. Whether it's the digital space or on stage during his act, he is comfortable mining his personal life and real life as he knows as source material for his work.
As an author, Illuminati has published several books, including Assholeology: The Science of Getting Your Way And Getting Away With It (2010) with two co-authors; Assholeology: The Cheat Sheet (2011); and Thank You for Not Laughing (2012). The former works are a guidebooks and a field guide about the art of being, well, an ass, and the latter is a collection of notes from his personal journals.
His next book -- The New Dad Dictionary: Everything He Really Needs to Know - from A to Z -- will be published in April, 2015.
As a blogger, pop culture commentator, and writer whose words often live on the glorious w-w-w, Illuminati's work has appeared in a variety of sources and in front of millions of eyeballs, among them BroBible, AskMen, Men's Health, Cosmo, Nerve, Maxim, Uproxx, Huffington Post, Guyism, The Good Man Project and Penthouse.
But wait. That's not all.
Illuminati muses on his role, responsibilities, and unique experiences as a parent who is essentially learning on the job in his hilarious yet poignant A Message With a Bottle website, which pulls in over 200,000 new visitors each month and even raked in a whopping 2.3 million views in June 2014.
In addition to writing about life -but not in a reality TV kinda way, of course- Illuminati has also published several works of fiction that have appeared in online literary journals.
Essentially, Chris Illuminati has a lot to say about a lot of topics, like most of us, but he does so with humor, informed opinion, and with a grasp on what's happening in pop culture, running it through a personal filter. That combination makes most of what he writes and says relatable and able to elicit a chuckle more often than not.
And yes, it's his real name.
Top Customer Reviews
Illuminati, a regular contributor to Penthouse and Details, delivers a pocket-sized sequel to A******ology: The Science Behind Getting Your Way - and Getting Away with it. Think of it as a "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" instruction manual that can help you hang with the Wolf Pack.
In case you confuse the difference, Illuminati provides regular tips called "Don't be a Douche." For example, he writes, "If you're out of college, older than twenty-one, and don't have lacrosse practice, you shouldn't shop at Hollister, Abercrombie, or any other trendy kiddie stores. Only a douche dresses younger than it says on his driver's license."
My wife's magazines - Health, Sunset and Prevention - dominate the reading selection in our bathroom. This book is a perfect antidote. The sequel's smaller size is a handy restroom companion, fitting nicely atop a tank lid or wedged behind a roll of toilet paper.Read more ›
