I haven't read the print version so can't answer this one sorry guys
I loved the bit where she talks about the baby shower.
It is a memoir
Not sad at all
Rachel Dratch is so talented and funny!! I miss seeing her and was very excited to know where she has been and why.
The timing was perfect. She is is way too funny and too talented to stay out of the public eye!!
I laughed hard, out loud several times.
This is the only the 2nd audiobook I have listened it, but I did not want it to end.
I love the Rachel does not take herself too seriously. Her take on some of her experiences with her career, trying to find love, having a baby, etc had me laughing out loud on numerous occasions. She is hilarious, smart and a great storyteller. By the end of the book I felt like I knew her and was sad to say goodbye.
Yes, I think all Celebrity memoir audio books are better than the print edition, because they take less time and it is read by the celebrity.
I didn't know about Rachel Dratch's son and her relationship with the father, it's a very interesting story. I relate to her experiences in dating, so it was moving to hear her story of how she finally found a lasting relationship. It was also interesting to hear her experiences in Hollywood.
Rachel Dratch's story is interesting and the behind the scenes information about SNL and other comedians is fun to hear about. But being a comedian I was expecting alot more hilarity. I laughed out loud a few times but that was it. The hardest part for me was the break neck pace at which she narrated. I wanted to yell at her to SLOW DOWN! It was so fast in some places that I think it killed some of the comedy. I think you will really like this book if you are a big Rachel fan or you are in the business yourself. But otherwise I was disappointed with it.
I didn't read the print version but I like that Rachel herself reads the audio version.
Yes. She is a good reader
This is not about show biz!
I liked the book. It took a different direction than I thought. It was funny but not in the same way. There were actually a lot of times I didn't laugh because the themes didn't really call for it. It was good though.
I cannot say as I do not own the print version
Bossy pants, because Tina Fey and Rachael Dratch have a lot of the same perspectives on life. Both are witty and frank when discussing personal topics
This book made me laugh out loud a few times
Rachel Dratch's voice shines through in her reading of "Girl Walks into a Bar," which makes the audiobook even better.
Dratch's off-beat style of comedy is spot-on. This book brought me back to some of her best on her SNL days.
Top 2 without a doubt.
This was my first comedy audio book. I've since listened to other SNL cast members with books, but nothing comes close to Rachel Dratch's Girl Walks into a Bar. I laughed out loud, I cried and laughed at the same time and the whole time I felt like Rachel was in the room with me. I love her story, how she told it and I'm rooting for her.
From start to finish. I could not stop listening to this book.
I love you Rachel and wish you all the best!

I'd been putting off listening to "Girl Walks into a Bar" because I'd previously enjoyed other audio books that include behind-the-scenes of "Saturday Night Live" type memories (Bedwetter, Bossypants). I'm pleased to say that Ms. Dratch proves once again that each performer's time at SNL is different enough to captivate all over again; plus - here - it's part of a much larger personal narrative.
While she gets a lot of comedy mileage out of the parade of not-quite-worthy potential mates, Dratch never loses sight of what their interactions reveal about herself - without getting preachy about it.
Ms. Dratch has an uncanny sense for delivering inner monologue with all the conflicting impulses and over-the-top hilarity that so commonly marks a neurotic's conversations with oneself.
Definitely a laugh-out-loud book, and definitely a can't-put-it-down.
