    Nancy Cartwright is the ultimate Simpsons insider. Her raspy, childlike voice is immediately recognizable as none other than Bart Simpson, the most precocious, irreverent, and intriguing 10-year-old ever to enter the American consciousness.

    What did you love best about My Life as a 10-Year-Old Boy?

    When I first started listening to Nancy's voice, it was hard to take. She is very overly energetic and excited. Perhaps, I was not quite that ready to experience that amount of enthusiasm but after a while I grew to look forward to it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite was when Nancy attempted to do other characters in the Simpsons. Quite humorous at her attempts.


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

    What I really liked about this book is that it gave some background to her start and a lot of background to the Simpsons. I think if I would have read it, I would not have had the same impact has hearing Nancy's inflections and voices throughout.


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

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish I had a comical and energetic voice like Nancys. Voice overs sound like a fun and adventureous job.

    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?

    Teddy says: "Just kinda 'meh'...."
    "I would totally buy Rachel a drink!"

    What did you love best about Girl Walks into a Bar...?

    It was a cute and humorous story about Rachel Dratch. Not a full bio but just some exerps about her life from SNL to Motherhood.

    I saw some other reviews on this site and I would say that they were unfair in saying that they didn't like this because they wanted her to talk more about SNL. Tina Fey's book was not all about SNL comments so let go of those thoughts.

    Listen to this book because you want to hear some funny situations Rachel encountered. She's got a great internal insight that is amusing and fun. I liked the book. It was a great. Listen to it.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When she was at Burning Man taking a pee. I'm not going to give this away so you are going to have to listen to it.
