The Charleston Music Hall will welcome the Ross Mathews “Name Drop” Book Tour on Tuesday, February 18th at 8 pm. Mathews, the nationally bestselling author of Man Up!, judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race, and alum of Chelsea Lately, wrote this collection of hilarious and irreverent essays about his experience with Hollywood’s most talked-about celebrities. Tickets go on sale on Friday, December 20th at 12 pm.
Since 2001, Mathews has traveled the world and established himself as one of the most in-demand television personalities hosts and pop culture experts in entertainment today. Endearing and witty, undeniably funny, and one of the hardest working people in show business, Mathews has won the hearts of millions of Americans since his television debut as a correspondent for The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
In addition to his work on television, Mathews can be heard weekly on his top-rated podcast “Straight Talk with Ross Mathews” where he gives his hilarious take on the latest entertainment news and gossip.
In 2013, Mathews released his first book, Man Up: Tales of My Delusional Self-Confidence, which quickly became a national bestseller. With an introduction written by Gwyneth Paltrow, and afterword from Chelsea Handler, Man Up takes readers inside Mathews’ personal journey as a super fan, revealing the most embarrassing and hilarious moments of his small town life and big city adventures, and how he managed to turn an obsession with pop culture into one-on-one interactions with celebrities like Paltrow, Tiffani-Amber Theissen, Madonna, and Michelle Kwan (to name a few) without ever having a single restraining order issued against him.
When not working on his many projects, Mathews is a strong supporter of the Human Rights Campaign, speaking at many of their nationwide events and he received their Visibility Award in 2011. He lives in Los Angeles and Palm Springs with his partner, wardrobe stylist and interior designer Salvador Camarena, and their dogs.
