Yes. I really like Samantha Bee and I'm always curious about people's paths.
I think this book appeals more to us comedy nerds.
Aside from an overall excellent reading, Weiner hits some fairly specific accents very well. I'll excuse him for a few mispronunciations of difficult Louisiana towns and other names. I would actually consider listening to another audiobook just because Tom Weiner recorded it.
This is the book if you want to really delve into the life of Huey Long. If you're looking to learn the basic story without as much detail, though still a well written book, try "Kingfish" by Richard D. White, Jr.
If anything, this book kind of hurt his cause for Atheism to me. But it's still a great read and he's a fascinating person.
I'm a big comedy fan and a big SNL fan and I think Tom Davis has never gotten the exposure he should. I was very happy to finally get to know him a bit.
Tom, if you ever read this, please keep writing and performing. If anyone in the industry reads this, please hire Tom Davis and give him a platform to write and perform. The world needs more Tom Davis.
I would recommend this to anyone. It's fascinating and it really makes you want to start looking at causes and effects of big issues in a different way.
When an author reads his or her own words, it just works way better... at least with non-fiction.
I would recommend this only to hard-core Maher fans. For other friends, I'd recommend more recent works.
There weren't any characters.
Yes. It wasn't very long.
Funny, but lengthy
Otto Franken is tough to beat. I just love the idiot who never learns or changes.
His delivery on his material makes it come alive.
