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.

    "So so"

    I like Tina Fey, she's funny. I enjoy movies w/her in them & her sarcastic humor. She's extremely witty. However, I wasn't fond of her consistant swearing. I'm not sure what I expected. The book is funny.

    Bossypants is great. Tina Fey is consistently smart and funny. The book is well paced and full of her self-deprecating humor.

    What can I say about Tina Fey? She is such a gifted performer! Even if you've read her book already you must listen to the audiobook. Tina brings it to life and she is total comedy magic. What a hoot! I've already listened to this book twice through and I know I'll be enjoying it periodically in years to come. Such a gem!

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

    The fact that Tina Fey narrates this herself adds so much to the text...her cadence and intonation make it even funnier to listen to.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bossypants?

    I loved her chapter about Don Fey....Unacceptable! SO funny and she seems to have so much respect and love for him.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Loved all of the references to being a teenage girl in the 80s. Anyone who grew up during this time will appreciate the references.

    "Funny Lady"

    I guess I should have expected good and humorous (and self-deprecating) writing from a writer and star from Saturday Night Live. She delivered. A thoroughly enjoyable read.

    I'm a mother, a teacher and terribly dyslexic. I spend a lot of my time listening to podcast, or audiobooks whilst doing other boring tasks.

    "You will laugh out loud"

    As you would expect, this is a very funny book. I was laughing alot on public transport...which is some what embarrassing as everyone stares at you. She's funny and insightful at the same time. It's totally worth listening to if you want to laugh out loud on a bus and have everyone stare at you.

    "Who doesn't love Tina Fey?"
    Where does Bossypants rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I loved this audiobook. I'd listen to it again especially if I had a long drive coming up.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Tina's stories are great & you feel like you're getting a "behind the scenes" on everything you've seen her in on tv.


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

    Absolutely


    Any additional comments?

    Give this book a try. You'll be glad you did.
