Bossypants | [Tina Fey]

Bossypants

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.

    "Perfect Long Run Material"

    Tina Fey kept me sane through a grueling 20 mile run all by my lonesome. I will always admire her for that. First of all, she is a fantastic narrator. She brings you into her stories, paints a vivid picture with her voice and tone. But it's the writing that kept me alert, laughing and smiling for four hours. She is SMART. Smart and funny and is delightful as all get out. One question audible.com--where is the pdf? She referred to it throughout the book but it didn't come through in the download. Am I missing something?

    Story
    "She is a hoot!"

    I enjoyed listening to this book. It was entertaining, informative and semi-insightful. I did, however, think her choice of using some of the more vulgar words was a poor one as they added nothing to the book, yet detracted in many ways. When women use words as she did, it demeans all of us.

    Tina Fey can certainly tell a story. I can honestly say that I like her much better now, as an actress/comedian now that I have listened to her book.

    "Laugh Out loud funny!"
    What made the experience of listening to Bossypants the most enjoyable?

    Listening to Tina Fey deliver her own words, her own way makes! Her comedic timing takes it to another level, producing more laughs than if you simply read the book on your won.

    It's very very funny and entertaining. It's also really inspiring to hear her story, as a powerful woman in the entertainment industry who has never forgotten where she comes from.

    "I love Liz Lemon--and Tina!"

    I listened to this flying across country--in coach--and never had a more enjoyable flight. Her story is great, and I loved hearing her read it with her own expressiveness. She is so funny!!

    "Very entertaining..."

    Tina Fey has an excellent reading voice and Bossypants was easy to listen too. The story was a rollercoaster of hillarious down to funny or amusing.

    Tina does such an amazing job on this audible performance. She even includes a .pdf special for audio listeners. You don't miss a thing by not having the book - in fact I think it is better!

    It was a Great way to travel to and from Work everyday listinging to Tina Fey. Her Outlook one every thing is refreshing and you find yourself sitting at the red light laughin your head off while the driver next to you vives the look; That one is crazy! And the funny is that you don't give a sh-t about him.Tina Fey is absolutely great in narrating. Cudos to you girl for doing it yourself.
