    Comedian Denis Leary explains "Why We Suck" at Book Soup, on Monday, December 1.

    DENIS LEARY EXPLAINS "WHY WE SUCK": The acerbic, tell-it-like-is star of "Rescue Me" signs his new book "Why We Suck," which tackles various modern-day issues and institutions. The comedian made headlines for remarks about autism in the book (he later apologized).  Monday, December 1, 7PM. Book Soup, 8818 Sunset Boulevard, West Hollywood. 310-659-3110

    SAMUEL L. JACKSON AWARDS SHOW: Major celebs -- think Denzel Washington, George Lucas and Sharon Stone -- are on hand as American Cinematheque honors the work of the "Pulp Fiction" star. Tickets start at $550, but an old-fashioned, put-on-the-tux kinda night is in store. Monday, December 1. Beverly Hilton Hotel, 9876 Wilshire Boulevard, Beverly Hills. 323-314-7000

    WHERE FILM WAS A CENTURY AGO: Hard to believe that movies are really only 100 years old give or take a few years. The Academy screens shorts from 1908 over one flickery, fascinating evening. Are plots/acting styles/direction so different? Or not at all? Monday, December 1, 7:30PM. Linwood Dunn Theater at the Academy's Pickford Center for Motion Picture Study, 1313 Vine Street, Hollywood.
