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.

    "Smart, funny, entertaining"

    The difference between a celebrity memoir written by a celebrity who actually writes for a living and one who doesn't is, well ... quality. Fey is a great storyteller, and her improv training and sense of irony let her get away with being a celebrity even as she makes fun of celebrity.

    "Awesome!!!"

    Tina Fey was so funny. This was my first Audio book experience and I'm glad that it was Tina Fey's voice carrying me through it. I looked forward to getting into my car each day to and from work, and I found myself volunteering to run errands on the weekend, just so I could listen to the book. There are some things reading the book just doesn't have...Tina Fey's voice. It was lighthearted and fun throughout the whole book and it was interesting learning about all of the phases of her life through her voice. I was sad when it ended.

    "Super Funny but too crude and too much swearing"

    My wife and I started listening to this on our recent road trip and start laughing from the get go. Unfortunately, there was too much swearing and the humor was too crude. So we had to stop listening to it. It was a shame because she is very funny.

    "You'll laugh out loud."

    If you don't mind people staring as you exercise, because you are often chuckling, reacting to funniness only you can hear, get this book. Fey's observations are clear, and you'll come away liking her even more than you aleady do. Big problems with the production values, though. Was this recorded in her garage with a cheap mic? The horrible audio echo that accompanies her wry delivery distracts throughout.

    Story
    "More muscles to frown my ass."

    I am 35 minutes in and I have reverted to lightly smiling rather than laughing my head off. This is because every single muscle related to laughing is hurting, and if I smile any wider my dimples hurt. Worth it.

    "Warning, you will laugh out loud"

    Know that if you listen to this in public you will laugh out loud and someone might think you are a crazy person.

    Aside from her great delivery and humor I also enjoyed the behind the scenes stories from SNL and 30 Rock.

    Guaranteed goodness.

    "Funny, funny, funny!"
    What did you love best about Bossypants?

    I love how Tina Fey does not take herself too seriously.


    What other book might you compare Bossypants to and why?

    I honestly don't think that I have ever read anything like it.


    What about Tina Fey’s performance did you like?

    She is very much not caught up in her own celebrity. She comes across like someone down the hall or a few houses down telling you about herself.


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

    Sometimes I had to stop the book or go back because I was laughing too hard to follow the story!


    Any additional comments?

    This one is a great way to pass the time. I have listened to it twice and it was even funnier the second time!

    "What's not to love?"

    I've seen a few episodes of 30 Rock, and loved the skits as Sarah Palin on SNL, but I was not expecting this book to be outrageously entertaining. Silly me. There were moments when I laughed so hard, it hurt.

    Good stuff.

    "Ok but not great"

    my book club chose this book, or I never would have read it. Tina Fey certainly had an interesting life, and she tells it very well. I just really don't care. I did learn some interesting things about the television world and how it really works....

    "Lots of fun to listen to..."

    especially if you live in Fey's home town! She is funny. Not always laugh out loud funny, but definitely funny.
