Rachel Dratch is very real and to the point, no holds barred. Cute story, not amazing.....but very upbeat and feel good.
Tina Fey's "Bossypants". I would compare because of the obvious similarities (SNL, comedienne).
Lighthearted, solid listen!!!
Obviously Rachel knows her own story well, but she's a real performer and makes the book very enjoyable.
I listened to it quite quickly - even if you know her story from People magazine or wherever, it's still kind of suspenseful.
The fact that Rachel was the reader.
Yes, it was a very candid account of her life. Some she made the most of her life with a lovely sense of humor despite not quite fitting in.
Her emotions/ feelings
I would definitely recommend this book, it has a wonderful combination of nostalgia and anticipation that leaves it in a memoir category of its own. It's not so much of a memoir as it is a prequel to what is currently happening in Rachel Dratch's life now. Very funny stories, brutal honesty, and a sense of humor that is rivaled only by her friends and peers.
Absolutely. The 5 hours seemed to fly past me all too fast.
Very funny book!
I credit audible for improving my listening skills.
I did not know much about Rachel Dratch before this book. I had seen her on a few SNL episodes (I'm not a big fan of SNL) and on the first season of 30 Rock and then hadn't thought much about her since. Within the first few minutes of her book, I knew I was a fan of not only the book, but her too! She's got a fantastic sense of humor (especially about herself) and while her book is very funny, its also exceptionally honest. I really appreciated her openness about her self, her personal life, and her career.
I laughed a lot. But more than anything, I felt like the book ended with her happy and better off than the beginning. Being so invested in her story, I deeply wanted that for her.
Rachel is so funny, open and easy to relate to.
Her story is not only funny, but enlightening and very moving.
I laughed and cried. I have an improv background, so all the improv stuff was great. Rachel is so honest about her life and how things turned out it made me wish I was her friend. She's hilarious and talented and I look forward to future books.
This is an excellent, funny, moving memoir that I think almost anyone can relate to and will enjoy.
I bought and downloaded this book immediately following Rachel's appearance on The Jimmy Fallon Show last April. This was such a fun listen! I loved that Rachel narrated it herself. She has been one of my favorite comedians for years and this book is a great insight into what makes her the talented entertainer that she is. I started and finished this audiobook in one day because I couldn't stop listening! It's funny, (of course), touching, and insightful. It was so entertaining, I'll be "re-reading" this one, for sure.
I enjoyed her performances on SNL and wanted to gain some insight on her background. I highly recommend.
Not written it.
This book is the narration about the life of an unsuccessful woman.
Nothing of interest really happens, it’s not funny. She talks a lot about babies.
Do you really want to read something like this?
Rachel Dratch life seems a little boaring, the only thing thay may have been interesting was more snl stories, but not to much of that in the book.
