People may lie about reading certain books to look smart, but not many people pretend to read certain books to look deranged or perverted. And those few people include comedian Scott Rogowsky.
And he did it on the New York subway, one of the busiest subway systems in the world. In full view of other passengers, the brave comedian pretended to be engrossed by such questionably-named publications as Ass Eating Made Simple, Mein Kampf: for Kids!, How to Hold a Fart In, Slut-Shaming Your Baby, A Beginner’s Guide To Taxidermy and 1000 Places To See Before You’re Executed By ISIS. Needless to say, several passengers were more than a little surprised by the comedian’s seemingly shameless interest in “alternative” literature, although it certainly made their commute a little more interesting.
