He tours the country doing stand-up comedy when not developing new series, writing films like Run, Fatboy, Run, entertaining his 1,750,000 Twitter followers, composing mind-blowing essays and authoring books for kids of all ages.

A.C. Newman is a full-fledged power-pop genius. He's the main songwriter and vocalist of The New Pornographers, and he's also a successful solo artist. A.C.'s most recent solo album, Shut Down the Streets, explores themes of life, death and parenthood in a way that is simultaneously emotionally fraught and spiritually contented.
