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.

    Story
    "I felt her through my headphones."
    If you could sum up Bossypants in three words, what would they be?

    Real. Uproarious. Classy.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bossypants?

    I liked listening to her Sarah Palin skit. It gave me a real sense of what her performances are like.


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

    I'd heard about her on the morning news during the election of 2008 and how much she resembled Sarah Palin.


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

    I liked how she made impression of Don Fey, her father.


    Any additional comments?

    She's got a great voice. I'm glad I listened to this one.

    "Kept waiting for the point"

    After 67 chapters I gave up. Tina Fey is a funny onstage , but as a writer as they say: not so much. Bring, long winded and pointless.

    "Amazing!"

    Books are great when the author is the one to read it but Tina Fey takes this to a whole new level! I can't imagine having read it and missing out on hearing her read it.

    "Best Audio Book EVER!"

    This book is actually read by the author, not some mono-toned narrator who couldn't care less about the words that are coming out of their mouth. This is by far my favorite audio book. She's funny, passionate & has the ability to convey what she's feeling in every line. Well done Tina Fey! Well Done!

    "If you like Tina Fey, you'll like this book"

    Good, not great. A ton of Tina Fey humor, which is great for laughs. But it tends to get old after a while.

    "HILARIOUS!"

    Tina Fey was the ONLY choice for narration of her audio book. PERFECTION! I can't believe how many times I have quoted her book to friends.

    "Enjoyable Tina all the way"

    Loved listening to Tina tell her story herself. Sometimes the story of her life bogged a bit - weren't we all misunderstood teen losers? But there are many funny lines that only she could tell. Her reading made it clear that she knew you were listening to an audio book, but it was kind of disheartening how many times she referred to a pdf that supposedly came with the book that I couldn't access.
