I almost didn't buy this book because of the negative reviews, then I read one review that said "you should never miss an opportunity to hear a comedic author deliver their book in their own voice" which I agree with fully..... So i downloaded it.
I'm glad I did.... I love Sarah, even though she's crude and raunchy, it's all for comedic shock value and that's WHY you love her right!!?
The story is good, it shares some insight on her show, how she writes comedy and such but also gives a background on her vulnerabilities and insecurities which is a side of her you don't often see. So that was pretty cool too.
All in all pretty well written and very well delivered in my opinion.
Another fun and informative tale of a budding artist and a woman growing up in America. Valuable information about TV production and the choices to be made in the entertainment industry. Highly recommended!
This is classic Silverman at her best. noone but her could pull it off. while the story of her life so far isn't the main draw, its her insightfulness and humor she brings to the table (along with her snarky narrative skills) that really shine. She manages to throw in a few gems of behind the scenes action that bring insight and laughter. Thank you Sarah!
Silverman gives a fine dead-pan reading of her own material.
That a particular part of her body is not used whatsoever for its intended purpose, in fact, its clean enough to eat off of.
Entertaining and easy to follow. Sarah is entertaining and relatable. She easily avoids getting caught up in vapid ramblings, whic, for me, seems to be a common pitfall in comedian autobio's. Great book to just relax and unwind with.
I've loved and disliked Sarah Silverman both at the same time. I have always thought her a little more blunt about sex and bodily functions than I felt comfortable with. That being said, I adore people who speak truths and can look at their own imperfections with clarity. She reads the way she speaks and found myself busting out in laughter and a couple times almost-cry. She didn't leave me hanging in the latter emotion long though before she had me laughing again.
At the end of this book I put down my phone and thought, "I could actually hang out with this immature 40 something."

Sarah Silverman gives us a very honest, candid look into some of the darkest times in her life, delivering it all with a healthy amount of humor and plenty of the filthiness she has made so famous. If you dig Sarah Silverman, you will dig this book.
I regret that I took so long to read/listen to it.
