I love what Gutfeld has to say about politics, life and human behavior...and I even enjoyed how he said it, for about 20 minutes. But then the repetitive use of the same comedy techniques got a bit ridiculous. After an hour of the book I was almost able to predict his next humorous comment, missing only a detail or two. It seems that Gutfeld had much more truth content than he had comedic variety. I would say that the substance of the book deserved four/maybe five stars, while the style was only a two. Don't get me wrong, the humor was funny...just way too predictable and repetitive after about an hour.
You can tell he thinks he is writing funny stuff, but it just isn't that funny at all. In fact I did not even finish this book, it is that bad.
The whole book, it is terrible
The intro was disgusting with all the F::: words that were not needed. Also ,we only listened to the first two cd's & most of it did not make any sense ,also the disgusting language was not needed and ruined what ever the book was about. Threw it away.
clean up the language
This guy can be funny at times--though after a short time, his humor starts feeling really formulaic--but what really makes this unpleasant to listen to is the tone. It's like listening to the worst, angry, blowhard, frat-boy you can imagine.
And most of the times, he's just not 1/10 as clever or funny as he thinks he is. (An example, is repeating gag of him asking the recording engineer for some water, which, if you listen to audio books a lot, has the potential to be funny, but just turns out predictable and stupid.)
I probably expected too much from this audiobook. This is a collection of Gutfeld's "Greg-a-Logues," which are short rants about various "untouchable" subjects.
Gutfeld is very funny, and some of his observations are trenchant. However, I wanted more meat to the material, and it just wasn't there.
Very light listening.
I love Red Eye, but this book lacks the spontaneity and the hilarious repartee that distinguish the show. George Carlin does the un-PC schtick much better. Save your credit and watch Greg on YouTube instead.
