Fans of comedian-writer Adam Cayton-Holland know him best as Spanish teacher Loren Payton on truTV's Those Who Can't, which returns for a third season this fall. In the sitcom, Cayton-Holland, Andrew Orvedahl and Ben Roy play self-absorbed and woefully dysfunctional teachers — they're the rotten apples, not the students — who wreak havoc at fictional Smoot High in Denver. (The series has featured nearly every big-name comedian as a guest star, including Rory Scovel, Patton Oswalt, Eddie Pepitone, Baron Vaughn, Mary Lynn Rajskub and the perpetually drunk Kyle Kinane.) This year, Cayton-Holland released his third stand-up album, Adam Cayton-Holland Performs His Signature Bits. He also published a new book, Tragedy Plus Time: A Tragi-Comic Memoir, which he discusses tonight. In the memoir, Cayton-Holland recounts his career and forming the Denver-based comedy trio The Grawlix but, more important, his relationship with his parents and two sisters, one of whom committed suicide in 2012.
