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.

    "You Will LOVE Yourself for Listening"

    Funniest Book EVER. I listened to it while driving at night and in the morning, kept me attentive and entertained the ENTIRE TIME! Perfect length, but I wanted more after it was over... :)

    "Hilarious!"

    I had been anxious to read Tina Fey's book, but couldn't find the time. I downloaded it and listened to it while I ran. Let me say it is pretty tough to run while you are laughing so hard! I can't imagine experiencing this book in any other format. It was like having Tina Fey over for a visit. I felt like we were good friends sharing funny stories. She seemed to ad-lib a great deal and I loved that. You will not be disappointed with this book.

    "Very funny, very entertaining"

    I'm not actually a big fan of 30 Rock, but Tina Fey's writing had me laughing all the way through. She drops in a few insightful observations about the entertainment business too. Well worth the listen.

    Story
    "A tiny bit political but I like it anyway!"

    I love Tina Fey....she has the best voice for an audio book. I know people on the commuter train give me funny looks when I laugh out loud listening to this but I can't help it. And I don't ever laugh out loud listnening to an audiobook...maybe a big smile but thats it. Tina has a very quick wit and it shines in the presentation of the story. I enjoyed listening to how 30 rock came to be and how aweful the pilot was. I was intrigued so I Netflixed the show and found it incredibly funny...but then again I'm not a writer so perhaps I just don't get the flaws. Politically I am more like her parents in the book (Republican) however her political views in no way distract from the entertaining value of the book. She plays a SNL skit in the book about Sarah Palin and it is hilarious! It's a great listen and you should get it immediately.

    "Boringpants"

    Thought this would be a really funny and light read. It was light but not too many laugh out loud funny parts. I was pretty disappointed.

    "Great for a solo trip"

    I bought this book as I was going to make a car trip of about 7 hours.
    This book certainly kept me entertained. There are funny parts, some serious one, and also anecdotes from Tina Fey's SNL life.
    Time flew by with it during the trip.

    "Laugh til you cry"

    Tina Fey is hilarious! Her comedic delivery is perfect and the material is relate-able.
    The only thing I cannot understand is, how can such a beautiful woman have so many insecurities? It was shocking to hear that from her....

    "It's ok"

    This book was ok, but not one of my top rated. I expected it to be funnier.

    If you like Tina Fey, this is a must! Very funny, entertaining, and fast paced story. I couldn't put it down. Tina Fey as herself makes the story even more likable.

    "Fun Listen"
    Would you recommend Bossypants to your friends? Why or why not?

    This book was fun to listen to. I felt like a good friend was telling me about parts of her life.


    Any additional comments?

    I was entertained the entire time, and feel as though I have a little more insight into the business/life of acting and comedy.
