Some editing of repeated phrases. Better organization of the story as a whole.
Her performance was good.
Just the multiple repeated ideas and phrases.
I do love her work.
Funny. Real. Smart.
I loved the sound effects and the random music she played to accompany certain parts of the book.
I loved how honest this book is and how relatable all her life stories and dating situations are.
I guess it comes close to Tina Fey's, Bossy Pants. It speaks a lot of working on SNL and the rise and fall of a comedian, and just how hard it is to make it in show biz.
I've only ever seen her on SNL, and liked her there.
It's a fun read. She's real and and all her stories are very relatable.
I did like the audiobook and love that you can list to the actual author doing the reading, but it is not the best of all autobiographies I have listened to.
I found that there are some parts that seem like it was mimicking Tina Fey's Bossy Pants. I don't know if this is true but I probably feel this way because it came out a year later.
Funny, Dorky, Quirky
No, I listen for an hour each way on my daily commute.
I liked it, and I was glad to hear about what happened to Rachel Dratch after SNL but it just wasn't my favorite audiobook of all time.
A very effervescent and enjoyable biography, Rachel, who reads her own biography has strong comedic timing and lends a great diction to her own words. I genuinely enjoyed her book and find her story interesting as especially she has had a difficult road to the career she has had to build for herself.
"Where were the Sullys and the Smittys?"
I loved listening to books during my commute to work. Maybe I shouldn't have retired!
I would listen to this book again. It's a nice story, nothing overly serious. One can just sit back, relax and enjoy. Those of us who have watched Saturday Night Live through the years will find those sections of the book interesting.
I've never listened to other books by Rachel Dratch before, but after listening to this one, I would be interested.
I've never listened to other performances by Rachel Dratch before.
I never listen to an entire book in one sitting. I prefer 1 to 3 hours at a time.
If you are undecided about what book you want to purchase, this is a good choice. I think you will find it a fun listen.
Rachel's narration. I love when comedians write and narrate their books.
I would recommend it. It is just a fun break.
Too many to count
I don't think it is one that should be made into a movie.
The Savvy Bride
Dratch's performance was engaging and entertaining. She had a real warmth to her read.
I enjoy her TV and improv performances. Great to hear about her 'real' life.
I laughed aloud a lot. She covers her early career, impro work and eventual casting on Saturday Night Live...then the subsequent pause in her career post SNL, for me the most intriguing part of the book....what to do next...
Rachel Dratch is very real and to the point, no holds barred. Cute story, not amazing.....but very upbeat and feel good.
Tina Fey's "Bossypants". I would compare because of the obvious similarities (SNL, comedienne).
Lighthearted, solid listen!!!
Obviously Rachel knows her own story well, but she's a real performer and makes the book very enjoyable.
I listened to it quite quickly - even if you know her story from People magazine or wherever, it's still kind of suspenseful.
