Arden Myrin’s first book, Little Miss Little Compton: A Memoir, is out today! The memoir is published by Running press and has a foreword by Debby Ryan (Insatiable).
In this book, the comedian, host of The Bachelor and podcast Will You Accept This Rose?, and the interpret of Regina Sinclair on Insatiable, looks back on the childhood, her unconventional upbriging, her debuts in stand-up in Chicago, how she hit Courteney Cox in the face, and more!
Read the book’s synopsis here:
Arden Myrin is the product of not one, but two hasty decisions. Her paternal grandparents ran off and got married twenty-four hours after they met. Arden’s parents did one better — they married on a dare. Growing up in Arden’s family, her dad ate nothing but sheet cake, while her mom was busy teaching a Cub Scout troop how to put on a Broadway musical. Oh, and she grew up in a small farm town called Little Compton, Rhode Island. Human population: 3,518. Cow population: 278. General Store: One. Stop Lights: Zero.
At nineteen, Arden packed her bags with stars in her eyes and landed at ImprovOlympic in Chicago, where for the first time in her life she felt like she finally made sense. After drinking in as much comedy experience (and Sea Breezes) as she could, Arden got her big break when she was cast on an NBC sitcom. She moved to Los Angeles, knowing no one, and quickly realized she had no clue how to be a fully-grown human adult on her own.
How do you date someone and not ruin it? How do you interact with people if you have a teeny bit of social anxiety? How do you stand up for yourself if you’re a people pleaser? And most of all, how do you start to believe that you are enough?
From small town Rhode Island to accidentally kicking Courteney Cox in the face on a soundstage in Hollywood, Arden’s hilarious, inspiring, and honest story shows readers how one totally unconventional upbringing might be the very thing one needs to thrive, all while showing up as your most outrageous, authentic self. Shout out to Little Compton!! Woot Woot!!!
