The author is both candid and unsparing in his description of the industry, the city of Los Angeles, and the challenges of being a performer in Hollywood looking for work. Casting agents, pay-to-meet workshops, the comedy club scene, film and TV auditions, as well as a peek inside the audiobook world; every aspect of the entertainment industry is thoroughly examined in this hilarious and comprehensive look at life as a professional actor in Hollywood.

A fun look at a man taking his shot in tinsel town

Mr. Theis has an engaging style. I found this to be funny, and inspiring. Taking a chance at living one's dreams is something many of us don't do. I applaud his drive.

I have downloaded several books of his now, and I recommend him to anyone.

Fantastic, realistic view of life in LA

If you could sum up Invading Nirvana in three words, what would they be?

I loved this book. As a Chicagoan who lives in LA I loved following Kevin's adventure. It's a funny, realistic view of trying to make it in LA. Really fun listen!
