Who knew Rachel Dratch had such an interesting story? From starting out to having her baby, nothing happens in a conventional manner for Rachel. Which makes it that much more interesting.
I'm not necessarily sure this book was necessary but I enjoyed Dratch's tales enough. Especially towards the end it does seem like there's a lot padding to get a story, which is already pretty short. I'm not sure I would have enjoyed this as a book, it would probably seem too flimsy, but Dratch's performance on the audiobook adds to it. It's not a ton of insider SNL info so if that's what you're after don't look here. This is really her story of her experiences and rejections from the entertainment industry, and her relationship with her baby daddy and experiences of motherhood in her 40's.
Based on her book I don't want to compare Dratch to Tina Fey but I did listen to Bossypants first then this based on the Audible recommendation. It is in the same vein as Bossypants but shorter and focuses more on her more recent personal life - but they have had very different experiences. There are stories of early improv days and SNL but That's not the focus.
A funny and personal look behind and beyond SNL with touching personal moments from Rachel's life.
Her performance and story are great, got me a little teary eyed at some points
Absolutely, this is freaking hilarious.I could never listen to this with a mouth full of anything because it would land across the room. You can expect at least a good chuckle every couple of moments, and a hearty laugh with tears is guaranteed in each chapter. She ROCKs!!! Good ole two times Dratch. The book is absolutely worth it from the first chapter!! I hope she has more books. I"m a huge SNL fan, and this was awesome. If you love Chelsea Handler, and Tina Fey's books you'll love this. She is a much better writer than Amy Poehler on this one ( sorry Amy). Buy this book if you need laughter in your life, DO NOT DELAY.
Yes, because it's light and a funny . It's interesting hearing her perspective on things.If youve read any other of the SNL bios, I think this one may be the funniest
Um yeah this is an autobiography so I'll go with Rachel Dratch
It's her own voice and who knows better how to use the proper inflections?!!!
It made me laugh a lot!
Give it a try...
I'm a 30-something paranormal, mystery, and humor enthusiast. For me, the main character is the most important part of a book.
I loved the beginning of the book, but it lost a little bit of steam towards the end. The struggling comedienne stuff was pretty funny and she is a terrific narrator. The starting family stuff was less funny, but sweet and enjoyable.
