The book is definitely worth a listen although i didn't find it to be laugh out loud funny other than a few sections . The author has had a very interesting career which is presented in a funny and colorful way . This was a fun , light , entertaining listen. Enjoy .
Avid reader, gardener and dog lover. I love many different types of non-fiction. Happy to say I love the Lord.
I loved that he narrated. I've always been a fan but I'm a bigger fan now. So smart and talented.
One of the, no, strike that, THE funniest book I've listened to thus far. Laugh out loud funny, crying in the car from laughter funny.
The torture of Paul Reiser and Alan Arkin..
There's some good advice for showbiz types, but nothing particularly moving.
I'll probably listen to this book many times... you should, too!
Really enjoyed hearing Kevin's experiences on his own voice. I wish there had been more detail on movie set experiences as well as his entrepreneural/creative work in getting the chat show going. Overall a fun memoir and interesting Hollywood insight!
Beginning with eating his twin sister alive before exiting the womb; Kevin has been heralded for his blood-thirstiness and the delight he gets from taking favorite Christmas presents from 8 - year old children from around the world (say what you want about Kevin, but he believes in equality...at least with misery). He is also a stand-up comic, comedian, actor, talk-show host, and one heck of a poker player. Read all about the less interesting stuff that I have listed here, in his amazing book about some guy he met at the screening of "Juwanna Man"...
Anyone who says they have only one life to live must not know how to read a book.
Pollak is widely known for his impressions and does not hold back with them throughout his audiobook.
I'd have to imagine his impressions and hearing them mightily improves the experience.
Yes, though due to the length of my morning commute, it gets broken up into multiple listens.
I've listened to the Kevin Pollak Chat Show for the past two years and have been waiting to get his audiobook. Glad I finally did!
Pollak is clearly a funny guy, but is also a very good story teller. Only occasionally does his shtick get a bit tiring, but most of the time his stories and anecdotes are a lot of fun. A light, enjoyable read told with pluck and verve.
There are a very limited number of books that I can listen to repeatedly- but this is one of them. (And you want to get this one in audio format to get the full experience of each tale- Pollak is an expert impressionist) The stories are interesting and entertaining and even if you are a regular viewer of the Chat Show - there are stories in this that you haven't heard before.
This would have to be one of the few audio books that I can think of that would be much better then the written book, Kevin does all the voices, and that's something he's famous for.
At about an hour and a half in, the book was so good that I actually looked down at my progress bar thinking the book was so good, I was going to be depressed when it ended.
About 15 min later it seemed like the book got a good bit dryer, less funny. It was still a good book, just not the "great" one that it started as. It continued and ended as a good book.
