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.
Oh Rachel, so lovable and neurotic. I'm glad things worked out in the end but man oh man does she hold on to every injustice. At one point I had to take a week or so off. A lot of complaining. So much poor me, why me. But....she is funny, just pretend you're listening to a funny version of you mother acting like she's the only person that ever had ANYTHING negative happen to her EVER.
