I'm a mother of nine wonderful children, 4 daughters and 5 sons. 14 grandchildren all of whom I have encouraged to read read read. Love the audible way so I can either sew or draw !
LMAO, all I can say is Funny funny funny ! Well worth the credit !
In the book, Jeff adds inserts from his characters. Hearing him read the book and speaking in the characters' voices makes it such fun to listen.
Jeff relates stories of his ups and downs with humor and honesty.
the characters' voices
This book gives insight to Jeff Dunham's journey to become the comic/ventriloquist he is today. He has spent 40 years working on his craft and never wavered from his goal.
I'm a residential remodeling contractor and love to listen to books 8-12 hrs a day while I work. It keeps me focused better than music.
I sincerely enjoy Jeff's unique brand of comedy. I have bought each of his DVD's and even got to see him live once. I found it most interesting to learn how his career has progressed from High School kid who must have been the outsider "puppet geek" to his peers to being one of the best darn comics and entertainers of our times. I learned alot about the art of ventriloquism, and a brief history of the art as well as how Jeff has most certainly earned his place through his hard work, dedication and sheer will. As with all his shows, his characters add a nice blend of "Jeff's other selves" as his best loved characters come to life in this self narrated autobiography. (Unless you count the characters piping up when they have something to add as another narrator, but that would be pretty anal, don't you agree?)
Fantastically written comic's biography. Never a dull moment, and I must admit I'm sorry to hear about Jeff's recent divorce. Hopefully he and his girls manage well in his new life and his new romance. Best wishes Jeff, and thanks for sharing your story with the fans.
WALTER, I CONNECT WITH HIM
WHEN HE TALKED ABOUT THE IMPACT THE DIVORCE HAD ON HIS DAUGHTERS
After listening to Unbroken, which by the way is a fantastic book, I needed something lighthearted and funny; Jeff Dunham's, All By My Selves filled it. This is an easy listen and I did like that Jeff read the book; Jeff made his characters come to life.
History and the humor
Jeff as it is about him
insite on his life
you would want to
knowing how it all came together
Yes if they know who Jeff is
none like it!
Nowhere near as good as the act!
The act is incredible!
Jeff Dunham did the voices to some of his best love characters. If made the book a great listen.
to hear that he wanted to do this all his life
This is Jeff's first book...boy I hope he does another one!
I could have listened to this book in one sitting, but I listen to books in my car on the way to and from work and I don't live that far away from work.
Funny, Enlightening, Interesting
Ironically - Jeff Dunham is my favorite character, although his numerous creations are funny, the 'man behind the dummies' is more interesting than all of them.
Walter - a classic old guy that everyone can relate to. But frankly - they're all hilarious!
Behind the scenes and on the stage, Jeff Dunham tells All
Having this book read by anyone else would have been a major mistake - no one does Jeff Dunham's characters like he does - it was a joy to hear the story of Jeff Dunham's life in his own words, read by him.
I much enjoyed hearing the book read by the author, it lent more credibility to the work and added some extra
Jeff is a very personable and enjoyable comedian. This makes his book very easy to listen to.
I found this book very easy to pick up and drop out of. I listened in the car on my 1.5 hr road trips each week, and hid this book done in several weeks, without missing a beat and having to go back to
