I fascinated by the talent of Rachel Dratch!! Tina Fey and Amy Poehler and decided to read , and/ or listen to their autobiographies. I just finished Rachel Dratches and although to pick a favorite out of the three mega talented women here would be impossible! They all made me laugh and cry just the right amount without being manipulated . Story wise, RD's ending was just so wonderful !! I love her!! You will too!!
Great insight into Ms. Dratch's start in comedy. Fun and engaging story read by the author, herself. If you like Yes, Please by Amy Poehler, you'll like this book too.
Talk about raw, candid, frank and honest: Rachel lays it all out in a thorough, detailed internal dialogue way that the beautiful Jewish culture shines at.
I really liked this book. It was made infinitely better because it was read by Rachel. Every once and awhile she breaks and chuckles a little which made it even more funny. To be honest though, I am not sure I would have liked it as much if I read it as opposed to listening as I did.
Enjoyed this read, so much insight on the opposite end of typecasting in Hollywood. Also enjoyed her perspective on dating and parenting, she's a fighter!
This will undoubtedly be compared to Tina Fey (read) and Amy Poehler's book (yet to read), but it strikes out on its own as it moves from show biz memoir to got-unexpectedly-pregnant-at-44 memoir. Light, pleasant, and enjoyable.
Rachel Dratch isn't just a talented comedic actor. She's a wonderful storyteller, too. Girl Walks Into a Bar answers the burning question, "Hey Rachel, whatever happened to you?" But it goes one better along the way. It makes the listener wonder how this amazingly talented woman ever got away from us in the first place.
Great telling of a very entertaining story.
Dratch had a real woman's perspective and says the things we all think and never say. The journey she goes through is emotional and hilarious and you get to be right there with her.
