This book should not not be suggested after Bossypants and Yes, please. Rachel comes across as whiny, boring, and privileged. She literally has a chapter dedicated to explaining why, as an unemployed woman, she chose not to have a nanny. And another chapter dedicated to the shame and embarrassment she felt when a vibrator bought for her by someone else was almost discovered. Unlike Tina and Amy, she lacks female empowerment and isn't someone you can relate to. Furthermore, this audiobook simply isn't funny.
That was the line that finally made me laugh out loud. Her tales of learning comedy at Second City and SNL were informative and interesting, but she really got funny when she talked about life with a baby.
Thoroughly enjoyed it...thanks for sharing, Rachel!
Rachel Dratch is a beautiful talent! I love this book. It was not only well written but well read. She seems so sincere and genuine, I feel like I know her- but I promise I won't act like it if I pass you on the street.
I bought this audio book based on the title. Sounded funny and I was bored at the time. Plus the lady on the cover had a funny face. I had no clue who the author is. I don't watch much TV. I actually googled 'SNL'.
I like to be surprised. And boy ... was I surprised.
Amazing work of art!
Say something about yourself!
Funny. Humbling. Interesting.
The hideously obese alien lesbian - bwaahaaa!!!!
I'm Australian and apart from the snippets i've seen on youtube recently, I haven't had much exposure to SNL - so choosing this unknown autobiography was a gamble and I was trusting the positive feedback - which I am happy I did. I enjoyed this more than I expected and she is seriously hilarious. I look forward to hearing about her more in the future :)
