    All By My Selves is comedy superstar Jeff Dunham's story as told by Jeff himself! This unique comedic audio release takes fans behind the curtain to explain how he turned a tired, vaudevillian art form into something truly modern and hip. Not only will Jeff reveal how he developed his act and lovable characters over the years, he'll also share the details of his life as working comedian and family man on the road.

    Story
    (352)

    At the urging of his wife, Elizabeth, the Duke of York (known to the royal family as "Bertie") began to see speech therapist Lionel Logue in a desperate bid to cure his lifelong stammer. Little did the two men know that this unlikely friendship - between a future monarch and a commoner born in Australia - would ultimately save the House of Windsor from collapse.

    Howard says: "As enjoyable as the film, and then some."

  • Just a Guy: Notes from a Blue Collar Life

    Story
    (110)

    Blue Collar Comedy star Bill Engvall is just a guy. He's been one his whole life. He can't help it; he was born that way. And that makes him an expert on the subject. For the record, here's the official definition of a guy: a person who doesn't think before he speaks. He can't. He's not that deep. Because a guy has only three basic needs: eating, sleeping, and sex. That's it. Just a Guy chronicles a lifetime in pursuit of those needs.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Just a Guy to be better than the print version?

    Didnt read the regular book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Easy to relate to Bill and his upbringing. Fun stuff that we all remember.


    What does Bill Engvall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Love his inflections and the way he relates his own experiences.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Pretty much.


    Any additional comments?

    Wish he could deliver more like his stand up performances, but understand the need to slow down the pace.
