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.

    "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.

    "Highly recommended for all, girls and boys alike"

    A funny and surprisingly human account of life as Tina Fey sees it, narrated by, who else but Tina Fey herself. Wonderfully enjoyable five and half hours.

    "Biography with too much emphasis on sarcasm"

    I stopped halfway through this one, I really honestly thought it would be much better given the fact I love Tina's writing on 30 Rock and others, but after listening through some 15 or 16 chapters I just got fed up with the huge amount of sarcasm.

    It does provide a few funny moments, and it might even get better towards the end if you stick with it, but I didn't.

    "VERY FUNNY!"

    This is one of the funniest books i have listened to. Tina Fey reads it herself and she is hilarious. I love her on Saturday Night Live, and 30 Rock. This is a contiuation of her great brand of humor. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a great laugh!

    "Secrets to a fulfilled life!"

    Tina brings her warm hilariously funny vocal style to this audio book. Reading it just wouldn't be the same. Especially the chapter on Don Fey!

    In this compelling audio book, the secrets to living the life you've always wanted are made available to you. Listen, enjoy and change your life!

    "Very boring."

    The only good thing about the book is that it was relatively short. I don't think I could stand another minute of it. I might of smiled once.

    "Hilarious, Entertaining, Intelligent"

    This is one of the most entertaining books I have listened to in a long time. I listened to it twice, back to back. I rarely re-read books, and never again so soon. It's creative, intelligent humor. It includes social commentary (e.g., about gender disparities in comedy), but without being preachy. Overall, loved it.
