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.

    "Tangible proof that women are funny"

    Ms. Fey's reading of her autobiography is a treat. The perfect combination of intelligence, timing, and laser-sharp wit makes this a great re-listen. It goes by so fast the first time that you can replay it (and laugh hard) over and over.

    One of Fey's arguments is that women are confronted with a "women can not be funny" mentality in the entertainment industry. Her performance in this audiobook drives a nail into the coffin of that attitude. This is really, really funny stuff.

    "Fun Read - Made Commuting to Funny"

    Really enjoyed this reading of Tina Fey's book. I laughed so much, and really enjoyed all the anecdotes about her life. Also love the included PDF. Great listen and highly recommended.

    "Good Listen, Book seem to cover a number of areas."

    Enjoyable listen, especially since Tina Fey narrated her own book! She injected her own timing and vocal inflection that greatly enhanced the story she was telling at each point.

    The book surprisingly seems to be more than an autobiography, at times it's pure comedy, than other times starts to feel like a Self Development aid.

    My only reason for dropping this listen to 4 stars, is when she spoke about certain co-workers, it felt 'safe' and somewhat phoney. Guessing to not insult or upset mentioned persons. It's understandable but when she's let's loose on other individuals and given the track record of some the 'spared' individuals...it felt as if she was clearly holding back and complimenting beyond merit.

    Overall, easy and quick listen with some definite laugh out loud moments.

    "Good enough"

    I love 30 rock and I liked a lot of this book, but at times it seemed rushed, as though there should have been one more re-write to organize the ideas. Also, I liked Tina reading the book most of the time, but every once in a while she'd get into a pattern of fading away at the end of every sentence and I found this distracting. Overall worth the money though, a good listen.

    "Yes, you will laugh out loud!"

    This is snippets from Tina Fey's life basically. She has such distance to herself and yet doesn't excuse herself for anything. Everyone should try improv theatre, even more after reading what it did for Tina Fey. She is really funny and I really did laugh out loud on the bus like people had warned me I would. As a non-US reader, some references to characters probably passes over my head, but who cares - this is a great laugh! Thing with her as well is that she is very clever and has kind of a serious message underneath. Makes it even better. I still can't laugh at my ugly haircuts - though I know I should...

    "I'm listening to it a 3rd time!"

    This book is awesome! It is full of stories but she points out the lessons learned and they are great lessons in life. I'm sure I'm going to listen to it again and again.

    "Painfully funny"

    Tina Fey is brilliant! This was my first audiobook ever and it's going to be hard to top the entertainment factor of this listen. I learned a lot about the politics of comedy on some of my favorites shows, but mostly I just laughed.

    "A great book by a smart and fun, masterfully read!"

    I loved this book! My adoration of Tina Fey multiplied by the second as I listened. Funny, honest, self-depricating, irreverent. A really great listen.
