If it wasn't for the implicit violence toward women I would just feel sorry for this guy. He can be funny for a little while - if you like self-deprecatory or toilet humor - but down the road he has become so used to telling brutal jokes about women that he appears to have become desensitized, something that hopefully will not happen to his listeners. Try David Sedaris instead.
I don't consider myself a prude but I can only describe this book as nasty and vulgar with loads of false self-abjection. I don't enjoy bitter unhappy people trying to be funny. Even though I did laugh about 3 times- but not out loud.
You would think that a fan of O&A and li'l Jimmy would love an opportunity to hear Jim tell his tales uninterrupted, but these stories are often pathetic and pointless. A rare "ha" was all i could squeeze out of these redundant anecdotes. Unfortunately, it's simply not the laugh riot it's touted to be.
I don't mind a good dirty joke and liberal amounts of smut if it's funny. This book has plenty of smut, bad language and some attempted dirty jokes but overall I did not find this book very humorous.
If you like adolescent humor and liberal amounts of the "f" and "c" words in a humorless context then you may like this but I doubt it.
Just not my type of humor I guess.
My recommendation is save your money.
Possibly a great book if you’re 13-years old --- an adolescent attempt at boorish humor that’s not funny. I gather that most of the materials were a rehash of his comedy club skits or TV stints. I’ve never been to a comedy club and after listening to a small part of this audio, I’m definitely not interested in going to one.
I kept asking myself why did I spend money for this stupid audio? Save your money/credits.
