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.

    "Not impressed"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I thought this book would be a lot funnier since Tina Fey is hilarious, but it was kind of boring. Tina Fey does a good job of narrating it, but the content is just a little boring.


    Has Bossypants turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes

    "A Ladies Story that will be enjoyed by all!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Bossypants to be better than the print version?

    Yes. Having the author reading helped with her feelings concerning certain areas.


    What other book might you compare Bossypants to and why?

    Nothing I have read or done on audiobook can compare to this.


    Have you listened to any of Tina Fey’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    SNL sketches. If you are talking about doing audiobooks, no.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Nothing comes to mind.


    Any additional comments?

    One disappointment was the sound a little. Sound like she was in a box on some areas. Other than that, neat story of your average girl making it to the big time.

    "I LOVED this book"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely! It was funny, well read, entertaining. Made me like Tina Fey so much.


    What about Tina Fey’s performance did you like?

    I normally don't like for authors to read their own books but this was different. I think it was better because Tina read her own work in her own funny, comedic way.


    Any additional comments?

    I read 52 books last year and this was one of my very favorites.

    "OK"

    she is very funny, but I found that half way thru...I felt like I had enough. That maybe my personality flaw, a touch of A D D but I never finished it. I did laugh out loud a few time and related to alot she said, but half is fine for me.
