Poolesville, Maryland - October 07, 2018: Humor Writer Mike Sacks invokes his character "Randy," for a photo shoot in Poolesville, Md., where the Brooklyn-based writer grew up. Randy, the subject of Sacks's faux autobiography, "Randy: The Full and Complete Unedited Biography and Memoir of the Amazing Life and Times of Randy S.!" released last month, is who he believes he'd turn into if he didn't leave Maryland.
In 2017, Sacks, a staff writer for Vanity Fair, released a faux novelization of a 70's interstate trucker adventure, (a la Smokey and The Bandit) titled "Stinker Lets Loose!" This year, "Stinker" has been turned into an audio-book on Audible with an all-star cast featuring John Hamm, as the titular Stinker, Rhea Seehorn, Andy Richter, Paul F. Thompkins and Philip Baker Hall.
