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.

    "Seriously funny"

    Listening to this put me in such a good mood, that when I was driving and someone gave me the finger (undeserved I might add ), I gave her a "thumbs up" sign!!!
    I would pay money to be a fly on the wall when she goes through menopause!!

    "Laugh out loud funny"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Bossypants to be better than the print version?

    This book is funny and will make you laugh out loud. It is even funnier because Tina reads it herself. Well worth the money and time. I didn't want to to end.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I might recommend it, if the person is closer to Tina's age, they will enjoy and understand the book better.

    thats she's talking about her self. makes it very easy to believe!

    "Even Better Than I Thought"

    This book was laugh out loud funny from beginning to end. I thought my wife was goning to wet herself she laughed so much. Tina Fey is just plain funny. But Bossypants was even better than I thought it would be. Very entertaining and insightful.

    "Liked it but can't say what it was about post-read"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I liked it. The time passed quickly. I learned about SNL and 30 rock. I was looking for more cohesiveness, however.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Tina Fey? Why or why not?

    No, don't think so. Not on same wavelength.


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

    Her engaging wonderful personality


    Do you think Bossypants needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Nope. Maybe another book with a different focus all together

    "Witty & Self-effacing"

    I particularly enjoyed her passages on improvisation and stories about learning how to be an adult. Hilarious and personal; she knows how to tell a life story without boring her listeners.

    Story
    "Great stories about Tina's journey to 30 Rock"
    Where does Bossypants rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It was my first audible book and it was a great first read!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bossypants?

    Her stories from touring with Second City and her description of her father, Don Fey.


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

    I haven't listened to any others.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Her stories about her Dad.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this as a audio book, but I haven't looked into how to get the pdf. I wish that it downloaded automatically with the audio book onto my ipod!

    "Brilliant"
    If you could sum up Bossypants in three words, what would they be?

    Laugh out loud


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tina - it's her autobiography!


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

    I've just seen her in interview and on television. This was just as funny as I expected, if not more.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was laughing out loud many, many times.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are a fan of Tina even the slightest, you owe it to yourself to check out this audiobook.

    "Great Narration, Plot is up and down"

    The beginning is the most funny, but the middle and the end are still pretty hilarious. The best part is that Tina Fey actually narrates it. She's so funny and the book is laugh out loud for the most part.

    "Tina Fey does Tina Fey"

    This book is actually better as an audiobook. Tina Fey reading her own jokes make it so much better. Obviously her humor comes across stronger with the timing she intended for it.
