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.

    "Queen of Pop Culture and Gen X"

    Tina Fey is not afraid to mock herself or anyone else. That is why I appreciated this book, she lambasts herself without any regard and that is, honestly, refreshing! She had me laughing out loud at one moment and crying the next. This is a great book for anyone, don't judge before you read, its worth every last inch! BRAVO!

    "We love you, Tina Fey!"

    I've listened to this wonderful audiobook 4 times already. Tina crafts every topic and joke superbly, and does a great job of giving credit to the talented people she has worked with over the years. I can't find the PDF, but won't let that affect an absolutely perfect 5 star rating.

    "I loved it.."

    ...and so did my husband, who said he didn't want to listen to it. We were driving over to pick my car up from the shop, and I put it on. He was grumpy and said he didn't want to listen to anything (but that I could...he wouldn't mind). He was thinking about work and getting organized. In two minutes I heard muffled snickering coming from behind the steering wheel. It was the scene about the cruise. I was laughing hysterically... then he lost it too. Good all the way through.. just what she promised...really funny and very human. Nice to see someone so successful has kept her feet on the ground.

    "Does Not Disappoint"

    Oh, Tina Fey, you live up to your reputation as a smart, strong, witty HAM (of the metaphorical variety, not the swine variety). ;oD This book had me laughing out loud as I completed my morning jogs...I am sure people thought I was insane. The biggest asset, to me, is how she can make a point without making a point. By deflecting what you might be "expecting to hear next" with humor, it makes the point even funnier. Okay...one last thing...Piss Jugs! REALLY???? Ew!

    "HILARIOUS"

    So funny about everyday day topics kile boys, make-up, female issues, jobs, family. So interesting about behind the scenes info on SNL & 30Rock. So great that her narration is like she is just talking with you as a friend. So good!!!

    "Reading too fast for me"

    I find Tina Fey hilarious and enjoy her writing very much. I'd read excerpts from this book and couldn't wait to get my hands on it. Although the content of the book lived up to my expectations, and I normally enjoy her voice and acting, I found the reading pace of this audio book too fast. I barely had time to digest each funny line before she was on to the next one, and that sort of ruined it for me. I wish I'd read the pdf along with her, to catch the nuances. Maybe I'll re-read it and try it that way!

    "it's just...good"

    It's funny, good, interesting and easy to listen to, though Fey's recording itself sounded much lower quality than many other audiobooks I have purchased. Her voice was recorded very flat and trebly, with a strong echo. Too bad... but the story itself, the pdf that goes with it, and Fey's narration are all still worth the purchase price.

    "Best audio Bio"

    This is the best audio bio I've heard. I didn't really know much about Tina Fey nor was I a big follower of hers, but her audio book had me laughing out loud too many time to count. If you want to laugh, laugh and laugh again, this is the audio book for you.

    "Perfectly snarky"

    I love Tina Fey and I think she is greatly under-appreciated by the country at large. 30 Rock is hysterical and creative and she has never been a part of anything that I thought was bad. Hearing her tell her own story is like getting to have a conversation with her. Her writing is good (and hilarious), her reading of her own writing is so fun, and she will have you running to your computer to pull up the downloadable PDF every time she mentions it. She made me laugh out loud so many times.
