    After a decade spent in isolation in the Ugandan jungles thinking about stuff, David Cross has written his first book. Known for roles on the small screen such as "never-nude" Tobias Funke on Arrested Development and the role of "David" in Mr. Show with Bob And David, as well as a hugely successful stand-up routine full of sharp-tongued rants and rages, Cross has carved out his place in American comedy.

    Overall

    David Cross is very funny. He has excellent comic timing and knows what to say.

    There are a few odd things about this audiobook, though. First is that he brings (several times) how stupid and lazy he feels the listeners are who did not buy the actual book. He does not understand, apparently, why people bought the audiobook. He never explains why he is, himself, narrating the book. If he really feels all that passionately about it, he probably should have just not put out an audiobook and only took the money of the people who bought the paper copies.

    The second thing that I found a little odd and off-putting was the hacky, local radio-inspired skits where he is bringing people in from "outside" and supposedly pulled into the audio booth for one reason or another.

    I know it sounds overly critical of me. But I am REALLY a fan of David Cross. He is so incredibly funny... and I did laugh a lot in this book, but I was just a little turned off by these two elements.
