About the Author

Doug Moe is a long-time teacher and performer based at the legendary Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, where he does a weekly sold-out show called "Hot for Teacher" and was a member of the legendary Mother house team with actors alongside Jason Mantzoukas, Jon Daly and Jessica St. Clair. As an actor, Moe has appeared on TV in such shows as Inside Amy Schumer, The Onion News Network, 30 Rock and Rescue Me. In 2006, he wrote and performed a stage show called "Doug Moe is a Bad Dad," which had a long run at the UCBT and was mentioned in publications like The New York Times, Time Out NY, and The Brooklyn Paper. Moe has written for Funny or Die, McSweeney's Internet Tendency, Gawker, in addition to blogging about his own adventures in the weirdness of being a dad on his site "Man Versus Child."


"Doug Moe has written a delightful and helpful book that gives real advice about the Wild West world of raising children."--Amy Poehler "actress, comedian, and New York Times bestselling author of Yes Please " "Thankfully for new fathers like me, Doug Moe knows it all, from little kids doing pee-pee to big kids doing homework. It's essential reading for dads and future dads."--Michael Showalter "writer/ director and cocreator of Wet Hot American Summer " "Doug Moe is the second-best father I know. Even if the only thing you get from this book is a good time, then Doug has done more for fathers than any other book of its kind."--Rob Corddry "actor and comedian, The Daily Show and Ballers " "Hurry up and buy this book! I didn't get a chance before my baby came and now I'm screwed! Help! I haven't slept in weeks and now I don't know what I'm doing! Dammit, Doug, why didn't you write this while I still had time to read books "--Rob Huebel "actor and comedian, Human Giant and Transparent " "Moe 'describes the awed affection new fathers may have for their children with relatable humor and genuine insight, offering a promising resource for the curious and the clueless.'"--The New Yorker "From tackling toddler meltdowns to bringing up baby in any conversation, comedian Doug Moe's irreverent take on the absurdity of fatherhood is a refreshing read for new dads. It feels like you're chatting with a friend who admittedly doesn't know everything, but does know exactly what you're going through."--Pregnancy & Newborn Magazine "This new book from comedian and actor Doug Moe is light on advice, heavy on funny, which should hit just the right spot for new dads."--Cool Mom Picks "Yes, it's just one man's point of view, but we have a feeling your guy will find more than enough in common with this hilarious dad-in-training."--PureWow "Man vs. Child is a hilariously honest look at parenting that even moms can appreciate. I mean, any book that encourages new dads to 'vacuum and be nice' is one I can get behind!"--Ilana Wiles "blogger and author of The Mommy Shorts Guide to Remarkably Average Parenting " "I am about to have a baby and I am terrified and feel like an idiot! Then I read Doug Moe's Man vs. Child! Now, I am prepared to have a baby. I am slightly less terrified and I am still an idiot! Thanks, Doug!"--Bobby Moynihan "actor and comedian, Saturday Night Live "
