  • "Tina Fey broke my new SUV"

    Overall

    With 3124 on my new SUV's odometer, I was laughing so hard listening to Tina that I clipped a cement highway divider driving to work.

    That's not the funny part.

    I kept on laughing.. Tina Fey is like comedic Oxytocin.

    Buy this book. Keep both hands on the wheel.

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

Diana's greatest hits:
  • Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim

    "Great observational story telling, but not comedy"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    My previous experience with David Sedaris' work was When You Are Engulfed in Flames, and after a few months my memory of it was that it was good. After having spent some time on other types of books, I was ready for a few laughs and thought I'd try another of David Sedaris' books.

    In this book he again related his personal experiences, most of which were filled with angst. I didn't get to smile or laugh much during this audio book because the stories weren't funny, but they were great 'human experience' stories.

    A few were disturbing and I couldn't relate to them because of certain belief systems I am currently operating under. I had a knot in my gut while listening to him recall the teenage boy slumber party with strip poker where another teenage boy had to sit on his lap naked. Or his recollections of panhandling as a teen in order to buy things. And, the story of the elevator ride with the young boy was too long and again full of angst.

    So, the stories are great, but maybe not for everyone. And, this is certainly not one to buy if you are looking for cheerful and funny comedy to lighten your heart.

    For that I would recommend some of Patrick McManus' story telling. Even though I have no interest in hunting or fishing, his stories are funny and clean and leave me with a positive feeling. After listening to Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, I didn't feel clean or happy or lightened, just the opposite.

    If you could sum up The Dark Tourist in three words, what would they be?

    Bold Poignant Observations


    What did you like best about this story?

    We are all trying to live freely but some of us are more controlled than others. It was a revelation to see how some humans exert control over others, how others manage to find ways to circumvent the control system, how some people love to be part of the control system, and how some people died due to the control system.


    Have you listened to any of Dom Joly’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was the first time.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The visit to the Killing Fields in Cambodia. How tourists walked all over the bits and pieces of humanity.


  • Never Shoot a Stampede Queen

    "Funny, Fun, great stories, an enjoyable book"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This book, read by the author, has some laugh out loud parts, and some parts that really make you think about humanity.

    The author does a great job narrating his own book.

    At first, the book felt like it stumbled a little, but within a few chapters the book hit a good stride and had me laughing or smiling or pondering. There were some stories that really made me think about how people treat each other, and I learned a little bit of history too.

    The book starts in a courtroom, and flashes back through various experiences before coming back to the courtroom and picking up from there with a few more stories. That worked very well, so I'm not certain where I felt a bit of a stumble in the beginning where I wondered if I had picked a good book, but that was pretty short and the book got really good pretty fast.

    The author's clean and folksy style kind of reminds me of Patrick McManus's humorous tales, and I hope he'll be as prolific a writer of humorous books as Mr McManus has been.

  • The Good Samaritan Strikes Again

    "Positive, clean, funny stories - brighten your day"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I had a big lump in my throat from another Audible book I had listened to. An excellent book, with stories of horses and the people who trained them, good and bad. The last chapter left me with a lump in my throat and sad heart and it was still there the next day. I needed a humorous book to take away that big lump in my throat and empty feeling in my chest from the true story I had read and the sad ending of a man in many of the chapters.

    I love Patrick McManus' s humor, stories built upon years of insightful observations of human behavior, and woven with a rare gift of story telling. This book has some funny laught-out-loud stories, and the rest are simply good stories that put a smile on your face or will at least lighten your heart.

    Laughter is good medicine for a heavy heart, and this book did the trick. It erased the lump in my throat, the sadness left from the end of another book and as long as I don't think about that other book, this book has done the trick and lightened the load and brightened my day.

    If you ever have stressed out days, or sad days, I'd recommend any of Patrick McManus' books. Not that I'm a prude, but it's interesting how he manages to get laughter without using foul language or crude references. I am a person who has been opposed to hunting, yet I still enjoy his stories, even those with a hunting or fishing theme, maybe because he writes them from the point of view of a hapless hunter or fisherman.

    They are a hoot.

  • "Hysterical manual for the 21st cent..."

    19 of 19 helpful votes

    Usually I can't get through a book of comical columns. This is the rare exception. Caitlin touches on EVERYTHING a woman has ever grappled with, but rarely will bring up, even to her best friend. With every topic, with relentless British humor, she brings you to a place of seeing the most common of things totally differently. From Brazilian waxes to high heels to childbirth to one of the funniest, most astute pieces on relationships I've ever read, she irreverently tears the conventional, cultural norms to shreds and offers up a lucid, common sense look at things we too often inanely follow like lemmings.

    While walking along the Pacific, listening to How To Be A Woman, a friend rode up on her bike. She's the same age as me, 59, has a successful business and who ran so much, prepping for a marathon to impress her kids, that she got plantar fasciitis. That was two months ago and she can still not walk far, never mind run. She breathlessly, sweating profusely, related how she goes to spin class three times a week, swims every day she can, and bikes umpteen miles to LOSE WEIGHT. This woman was, before she stated all this marathon training, MUCH THINNER THAN ME (and I'm a person whom no one considers fat, ok, except me,) and married to a guy who adores her no matter what she weighs. Having been quite happy race walking in the sunshine by the sea, I would have instantly switched to feeling like a clumsy elephant if it weren't for this book, to which I was listening. Caitlin is my heroine. She brings the insanity women just take for granted front and center and kept making me say to myself, "Well, of course!"

    This book also provoked numerous discussions with friends and family; the most amazing conversations about subjects we'd never touched before. This is such a mind opening book, so informative, while causing one to constantly laugh out loud (which is no simple feat for a book.)

    The first chapter is deceptive and Caitlin, stand up comedian she is, can be a bit loud. But stick with it, please, and then laugh your head off and, if you're a woman, be prepared to feel far more secure in your own sneakers than you did at the start. If you're a man, be prepared to actually start to understand those female enigmas around you. And no matter who you are, you will, without a doubt, look at everything around you in a whole new light.

    Though they have the vote and the Pill and haven't been burned as witches since 1727, life isn't exactly a stroll down the catwalk for modern women. They are beset by uncertainties and questions: Why are they supposed to get Brazilians? Why do bras hurt? Why the incessant talk about babies? And do men secretly hate them? Caitlin Moran interweaves provocative observations on women's lives with laugh-out-loud funny scenes from her own, from adolescence to her development as a writer, wife, and mother.

    Greg Gutfeld hates artificial tolerance. At the root of every single major political conflict is the annoying coddling Americans must endure of these harebrained liberal hypocrisies. In fact, most of the time liberals use the mantle of tolerance as a guise for their pathetic intolerance. And what we really need is smart intolerance, or as Gutfeld reminds us, what we used to call common sense. The Joy of Hate tackles this conundrum head on- - replacing the idiocy of open-mindness with a shrewd judgmentalism that rejects stupid ideas, notions, and people.

So, here is the thing: is it just me or does anyone else find that adulthood offers no refuge from the unexpected horrors, peculiar lack of physical coordination and sometimes unexplained nudity, that accompanied childhood and adolescence? I am proud to say I have a wealth of awkward experiences - from school days to life as an office temp - and here I offer my 18-year-old self (and I hope you, too, dear listener) some much needed caution and guidance on how to navigate life's rocky path.

    I don't know how it happened. Really, I don't. I was a student at the University of Buffalo, located, of all places, in Buffalo, New York. I guess that's why they called it the University of Buffalo? The year was mid-1960s. Every word of this story is true. Maybe embellished a little to satisfy my creative urge. But it's a story I remember as if it were yesterday. Then again, maybe it was. In the scheme of things. You'll laugh. A lot. You'll remember. A lot. You might even want to go back to college. Well, that might be a bit of a stretch!

    Growing up in a Philadelphia suburb in the 1970s was an easy life. Well, easy as long as you didn't have dyslexia or ADD, or were a Jew. And once you added gay into the mix, life became more difficult. So Todd Glass decided to hide the gay part, no matter how comic, tragic, or comically tragic the results. Now, Todd has written an open, honest, and hilarious memoir in an effort to help everyone - young and old, gay and straight - breathe a little more freely.

    These are the humorous musings of a guy starting to get a little older and being realistic about it, trying to have fun in life while still setting good example for his three-year old daughter, and living up to his expectations of himself and while keeping a humorous outlook at life. The hospital gown that won't close in the back? The nurse who didn't tell him everything he might need to know about laxatives? A dentist who uses his feet for leverage while doing a tooth extraction? Just another day!

    A collection of outrageous stories by the stand-up comic, TV host, and inspiration for the movie National Lampoon's Van Wilder. Bert Kreischer doesn't know how to say "no". If he did, he wouldn't have gotten himself mixed up with a group of Russian mobsters on a class trip to Moscow, earning him his nickname "The Machine". He wouldn't have wrestled with a bear or swum with sharks on national television. He wouldn't have (possibly) smoked PCP with a star of Saturday Night Live.
