    (2854)

    Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?”

    Funny, Funny, and Funny


    What about Mindy Kaling and Michael Schur ’s performance did you like?

    Mindy had an ease to her reading that was really easy to listen to.

  • Girl Walks into a Bar...: Comedy Calamities, Dating Disasters, and a Midlife Miracle

    Story
    (1152)

    Anyone who saw an episode of Saturday Night Live between 1999 and 2006 knows Rachel Dratch. She was hilarious! So what happened to her? After a misbegotten part as Jenna on the pilot of 30 Rock, Dratch was only getting offered roles as "Lesbians. Secretaries. Sometimes secretaries who are lesbians." Her career at a low point, Dratch suddenly had time for yoga, dog- sitting, learning Spanish - and dating. After all, what did a forty-something single woman living in New York have to lose?

    Would you consider the audio edition of Girl Walks into a Bar... to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print version but I like that Rachel herself reads the audio version.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Rachel Dratch? Why or why not?

    Yes. She is a good reader


    Have you listened to any of Rachel Dratch’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    This is not about show biz!


    Any additional comments?

    I liked the book. It took a different direction than I thought. It was funny but not in the same way. There were actually a lot of times I didn't laugh because the themes didn't really call for it. It was good though.

  • Most Talkative: Stories from the Front Lines of Pop Culture

    Story
    (380)

    From a young age, Andy Cohen knew two things: He was gay, and he loved television. Now presiding over Bravo's reality-TV empire, he started out as an overly talkative pop-culture obsessive, devoted to Charlie's Angels and All My Children - and to his mother, who received daily letters from him while he was at summer camp, usually reminding her to tape the soaps. In retrospect, it's hard to believe that everyone didn't know that Andy was gay; still, he remained in the closet until college. Finally out, he embarked on making a career out of his passion for television.

    Roberta says: "If you're depressed, listen to this book!!!"
    "Made me laugh"

    What did you love best about Most Talkative?

    I am a fan of books by funny people and Andy Cohen doesn't disappoint. It really enjoyed hearing his story of getting in the "biz". They way he depicts his mother is great! And the pranks he pulled on his parents really made me laugh!


    Have you listened to any of Andy Cohen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
