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.

    "Funny. Witty. Smart."

    Tina Fey is great - funny, witty, and smart. My husband and I both loved this - so if you and your sweetie are looking for an awesome audiobook to make the 7 hour drive to your vacation destination more fun, this is a great choice. Also great if you just want something funny yet thought provoking.

    "Fun and entertaining"

    This book was made even better by the fact that Tina Fey reads it. The story jumps a little bit back and forth, but it offers a great glimps into Tina Fey's life at 30 Rock as well as her time with Saturday Night Live. I found myself laughing out loud a couple of times. A good book for women that likes to hear success stories and the struggle it took to get there.

    "Better than 30 Rock"

    This book made me be the crazy person on the bus laughing to myself the whole way to work and the whole way home. If you like funny things and want to be happy, read this book.

    "DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS WHILE WORKING OUT !"

    This was a great listen...very funny...but one word of caution....due to unexpected fits of laughter - DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS WHILE LIFTING WEIGHTS !
    I almost lost it laughing in the middle of a set.......coming close to squishing my face.

    Fey paints a very approachable persona - a normal girl who had a couple of lucky breaks but mostly got where she is through determination and perseverance...talent too of course !

    "Good listen"

    I love Tina Fey. This book was a good listen and funny. It felt disorganized in parts and it also at times felt like she was trying to fill a word quota rather than write an honest biography. She's a good narrator.

    "Not for my generation"

    The first few chapters of this book are filled with pop culture references from the 70's and 80's. Since I was born in the mid 80's, most of these flew right past me and I'm sure obscured some of the humor. If you're a baby boomer or Gen X, it might work for you, but I couldn't get past it. Maybe I'll finish listening if I have nothing else in my library, but it wasn't for me.

    Also, a lot of the humor is based around being a nerdy, not attractive girl, and since I'm a guy, I couldn't really relate.

    "Tina Fey is hilarious as usual."

    I'm not generally a fan of "memoirs" (they usually sound like self-aggrandizing egofests or self-pitying therapy sessions), but Tina Fey is so funny and self-deprecating that she can write about any situation and make it pure entertainment.

    Don't forget to grab the pdf -- it's full of personal photos that go with the story. To get it, go to "My Library" and under the audio download link, you'll see a "pdf" link -- make sure you're only mousing over the "pdf" part, or you'll download the book all over again.

    "WONDERFUL!!"

    Tina Fey is absolutely fantastic both reading and writing this book. If you're thinking about buying it, do not hesitate, it's totally worth it.

    "Hilarious!"

    I listened to this book straight through with no breaks. Tina Fey reads her own book and is hilarious. Just make sure any kids have on some ear muffs, there are a few topics and words that are not for the innocent ears.
