Kiki’s Delivery Service screens for just 8 bucks at the Los Angeles Anime Festival.
A book signing with musical comedian Demetri Martin, a free museum day in celebration of PST: LA/LA, a show with advice from kids, and more to do and see in L.A. this week for 10 bucks or less.
This year, Demetri Martin made his directorial debut with the Kevin Kline–starring comedy-drama Dean. But fans of Martin know him best as a comedian, whose onstage, large-pad drawings are as much a part of his stand-up as his jokes. The first of three books, Martin’s 2011 This Is a Book is a collection of both goofy and erudite short stories, essays, doodles, charts, crossword puzzles and lists with such chapters as “Socrates’ Publicist,” “Optimist, Pessimist, Contortionist” and “Honors & Awards (for Which I Would Qualify”), the latter of which includes “Gold medal in sucking at each and every sport that could make someone popular in high school.” Tonight Martin discusses If It’s Not Funny It’s Art, his latest book of illustrations and jokes. Skylight Books, 1818 N. Vermont Ave., Los Feliz; Fri., Sept. 15, 7:30 p.m.; free, book is $15.99. skylightbooks.com. —Siran Babayan
