An Evening with Matt Groening & Lynda Barry Love, Hate & Comics — The Friendship That Would Not Die
UCLA student tickets go on sale Monday, September 25.
“From the beginning there was this very friendly, antagonistic relationship that continues constantly. That’s all we do, is give each other $ %#@. It’s our favorite thing in the world.”
Matt Groening and Lynda Barry met at Evergreen State College when he was editing the school paper and she was an aspiring comic artist. A lifetime later, the creator of The Simpsons, the animated sitcom that is now the longest-running scripted show in TV history, is still best buds with “his biggest inspiration,” the respected cartoonist and author of Ernie Pook’s Comeek fame. Groening and Barry reminisce about 40 years of friendship and creativity, aided by a homey and hilarious slideshow of photos and comics.
An audience Q&A follows their talk.
