Henry Winkler: The Fonz and Beyond
Join the legendary Henry Winkler as he shares his life and times with tales from on his 50th anniversary in Hollywood.
Told he would never achieve, the universally-loved Emmy-award winning actor, best-selling author, director and producer treads the boards with his heartwarming story of success in celebration of his memoir, Being Henry.
Launched into stardom as “The Fonz” in the beloved sitcom Happy Days, he has transcended the role that defined a generation of cool. In the enduring glory of that fame, Henry has endeared himself to new generations of fans with iconic roles in shows such as Arrested Development, Parks and Recreation, and Barry.
Dynamic, vivid, hilarious and emotional, Henry will take you from the achingly vulnerable lows to the stratospheres of global acclaim (chiefly his appearance at the 1976 Logies), the disheartening truth of an upbringing with undiagnosed dyslexia, to the pressures of a role that takes on a life of its own, and the path forward once your wildest dream seems behind you.
Brilliant, funny, and widely-regarded as the nicest man in Hollywood (though he would be the first to tell you that it’s simply not the case, he’s really just grateful to be here), Henry Winkler is revealed a man of immense depth and paths.
Filled with profound heart, charm, and self-deprecating humour, Being Henry is about so much more than a life in Hollywood and the curse of stardom. It is a meaningful testament to the power of sharing truth and kindness and of finding fulfillment within yourself.
As if that isn’t enough, add to the mix a story about his dogs, a Q&A and a live book signing.
Don’t knock it ‘til you’ve tried it.
