Rainn Wilson Bassoon King audio clip

Hear an exclusive audio clip from his new book, ‘The Bassoon King.’

Posted on

Rainn Wilson teams up Dwight Schrute, the sidekick he played on The Office, to discuss Wilson’s “Compendium of Comic Side Kicks.” This is a very specific list of sidekicks, however: Only those on television in the 1970s. Listen to Wilson (and Schrute) below, in an excerpt from the audiobook of Wilson’s recently-released memoir, The Bassoon King.

For more on The Bassoon King and its hilarious author, check out Wilson’s answers to our cheeky Books of My Life questionnaire, and watch him interview himself in the back of a creepy van in his book trailer.
