Bossypants | [Tina Fey]

Bossypants

Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

Audible Editor Reviews

Why we think it's Essential - Witty, finely-crafted, and meant to be heard, Bossypants is one of my favorite audiobooks of all time. Tina Fey knows how to deliver a good punch-line – and does so hilariously throughout her memoir. Her self-deprecating humor shines through, and this half-memoir, half-stand-up routine left me laughing for all in the subway car to hear. From her days in the Second City comedy troupe, to Saturday Night Live, to Hollywood, Fey's stories and memories will leave you in stitches. —Jess

Publisher's Summary

Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update", before "Sarah Palin", Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV.

She has seen both of those dreams come true.

At last, Tina Fey's story can be told. From her youthful days as a vicious nerd to her tour of duty on Saturday Night Live; from her passionately halfhearted pursuit of physical beauty to her life as a mother eating things off the floor; from her one-sided college romance to her nearly fatal honeymoon - from the beginning of this paragraph to this final sentence.

Tina Fey reveals all, and proves what we've all suspected: you're no one until someone calls you bossy.

Includes special, never-before-solicited opinions on breastfeeding, princesses, Photoshop, the electoral process, and Italian rum cake!

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    "Really fun listen"

    You know how some books or podcasts are dangerous to listen to in the car because they will make you laugh so hard you can't see the road from the tears streaming from your face? This is one of those books. I love Tina Fey and this book is a great example of why. She is incredible and strong and inspiring and funny and self-deprecating all at the same time.

    "Very funny Autobiography!"

    I didn't realize she had written her memoirs so early. Her story can only be told by her, in her wonderful sarcastic voice. True embarrassing tales that most women try to forget. I found myself laughing out loud most of the book. A good portion is about Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock. Now I did watch SNL and loved the background she gave, the advice she listened to and the reasons behind things. 30 Rock I watched for 15 min and turned the channel.... Very well written and performed. I hope she writes a fiction book next. I would read it. Kinda like Erma Bombeck only a lot funnier.

    "Loved It"

    As someone who grew up in at the same time as Fey, I really enjoyed listening to this memoir. My husband liked it too, as we listened to portions of it during Hurricane Irene until the laptop battery died! It's hilarious. A must read.

    "Some funny momemts"

    Why mention the scar and an attack, but then not give any details--shall we just make up our own story? What's the secret? Seems she draws draw more to it by the secrecy. Loved the part about Tina's father--could so relate.

    "Soundcheck..."

    Ok, so the book was hilarious. The narration was good. Whoever decided that fading between excerpts was a good idea needs a new career. It was pretty distracting and often words would be cut off at the end of a section due to fading.

    Five stars for the comedy and narration.

    "Not what I was expecting"

    Given Tina Fey's persona, Bossypants comes across as mundane and rather whiny. Entertaining in some parts, but I wouldn't listen again.

    "Love Tina Fey"

    I love this book. Also loved that Tina was the narrator. My best friend and I laughed hysterically when we took a road trip the other day. I am now Tina Fey's biggest fan.

    "Hilarious"

    Too short! I wanted more! I love this audiobook. And I actually did buy it for my sister-in-law, who had already read the book but who I insisted should HEAR the book, and she loved it too. Even if you've read the book, there's nothing like hearing it the way Tina says it, buy it again.

    "Annoying!"

    I LOVE Tina Fey on 30 Rock and consider her acting to be first class. This book leaves me irritated and bored frankly: her childhood tales just aren't that interesting, and her performance is grating. I switched from listening to this to David Sedaris and felt immediate relief... made me realize that her humor is far more appropriate in a theatrical/TV ensemble setting.
