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.

    "Warning: May cause people to look at you funny..."

    from laughing out loud or shooting fluids out of places that no human should...

    Funny, funny stuff. I have enjoyed listening to this book more than any other I have purchased. I think the fact that Tina Fey is also the narrator makes it even funnier! We all need a good laugh, and this book definitely delivers it! Thank you Tina for being so entertaining!

    "Hilarioius!"

    This book was funny, of course. It was kind of all over the place and sounded more like random rants but I loved it! Ms. Fey narrates so her true emotion of the words she's written come through as she meant them to. Have a listen and have a laugh :)

    "Listen just for Tina Fey's narrative"

    This book is amazing if you love anything humorous or having to do with Tina Fey, Saturday Night Live, or 30 Rock. I would prefer reading an actual book most of the time, but in this case, hearing Tina narrate her own book is amazing! You cannot miss it!

    "I couldn't stop laughing"

    This book is everything that Tina Fey is - smart, witty, easy to relate to. I loved hearing her narrate and found her story very compelling. I found myself having to repeat out loud half of the sentences because they were so funny and I wanted to try and remember them. This book was a real treat.

    "Fresh and fun"

    This is a modern, fresh feminist manifesto with heart and wit. It appears that the secret of Tina Fey's success is that surrounds herself with people she loves and enjoys. I really enjoyed her description of Don Fey (so similar to my dad that I couldn't stop laughing); the true girlfriend love with Amy Poehler; and her employee/mentor relationship with Lorne Michaels.
    As a side benefit, I think I better understand the writing for Tracy Morgan's character on 30 Rock (which always makes me cringe and laugh at the same time).
    There is only one big hole in the story. With the exception of the honeymoon, she completely leaves out how she goes from horrible dates at UVA to happily married. Did Jeff threaten legal action?

    "highly recommend"

    This is a great book made even more great by listening to Tina Fey read it to us. She is a unique spirit and creature and the book is full to the brim with funny, interesting, witty and wise insights. Her life (so far) is inspiring and great fun to listen to. I HIGHLY recommend.

    "I LOVED it"

    This audiobook is downright hilarious!! I love Tina Fey as the narrator. Her tone, delivery and inflection really make the book. I don't think you would get as much out of it if you just read it. I laughed so hard, I often had to rewind a bit to catch the stuff I missed. It was so good, I listened to it twice in a row! Tina Fey is awesome!

    "I was in the car with Tina"

    Having her read the book to me was so intimate. Plus, some of the stuff is really funny!
    I laughed out loud and sat in the car to finish the chapter/story more than once.

    "Great for a road trip"

    Tina Fey's genius lies in her ability to inject feminism into her work and yet maintain her accessibility to mainstream audiences. If only Jezebel could harness this power...

    Oh, and it's funny too. Seriously, I was Lizzing all the way to LA from SF.
