Kelly, Aussie living in Nashville, Employment Specialist, Writer & so on
Brilliantly funny from start to finish. She makes no apologies, but the section where she talks about her brother is mind blowing.
She might be harsh but is harshest when talking about herself. I love her honesty and how she is not afraid to call a spade a spade, in today's overly PC fake world.
Her vocalizations and infectious laugh.
When talking about her family and ex husband
Abridged books make me weep bitter tears of resentment
Yes. While her life is already an open book, this gives us some insight into her childhood and life.
Kathy has a lot of energy and does seem like a fun person. I do like dark humor, and I was able to figure out what she was saying most of the time. I don't follow Hollywood much, including not having cable for my TV or subscribing to People Magazine. I would look up celebrities from time to time to learn who she was talking about.
She went into her Mother's character for awhile, and I could relate to the economic advice that was given though mine was from a depression-era father. Good chuckles.
It does make a difference to hear her voice rather than just read the words. I'd watched one of her nightclub performances before listening to the book. The book was like attending a show at times.
This is a long book, and I planned to space it out when I got it, which is what I did.
I don't have the best memory in the world, but the early part of the book that tell of her acting lessons and her boyfriends, was amusing. Late in the book I got some laughs when Kathy described a comedian she was watching at a Florida college. She knew the school had made the wrong choice to entertain the students. She was an acquaintance of this guy. Her professional stories of shows, celebrities she's personally known, and others she's used for her act, are matched with stories of her personal family life. I wouldn't say the family stories were always for laughs. She had good parents who made efforts for their kids. It sounds like she's made some smart career decisions to not party too hard.
Really funny. Kathy is very entertaining and I love her dishing the dirt on everyone. She doesn't leave herself out of the dirt either.
You like me, you really like me (ala Sally Field in her Oscar acceptance speech.)
This book is lots of fun and honest, just like Kathy.
Im glad she narrated her own book....She makes me laugh out loud. Some things made me blush but was still a good listen!!
Yes. I have listened to it 3x in 2 weeks Kathy is so honest and brave I love her. I wish I could do what she does so fearlessly.
I loved how open and honest she was regarding her divorce and plastic surgery nightmare.
Can you handle it?
Kathy Griffin is quick, witty, and smart. I couldn't stop listening and I wish she would write more books... can't get enough of how crazy she is.
I found this book to be engaging and entertaining.
Tough Sh*T: Life advice from a Fat Lazy Slob who did Good. By Kevin Smith. Both books are narrated by the authors & are hilariously truthful.
I definitely laughed.
It is one of the best
N/A: no characters, although her impersonations of people are hilarious
The way she made you feel like she was telling the stories to only you, like you were having a private conversation.
It had a lot of funny parts and some touching parts where she tackled hard subjects.
It had everything a celebrity memoir should have: a little background, some funny stories, dishing on what other famous people are -really- like, and personal confessions about serious subjects.
Yes, Kathy has a great story to tell.
Kathy and Andy Dick.
Just as funny as stand up but with some sadness and true reality mixed in.
Yes, I had to force myself to turn off my machine.
