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.

    "I like Tina Fey, but I struggled through this book"

    I like Tina Fey and was expecting something interesting for my drives to and from work and school. What I got is endless cheesy sarcasm thrown at me. I struggled to finish this book and honestly the only reason I did finish it is so I wouldn't feel bad about spending so much money on it. No offense to the writer.

    "Strangers will ask you what you are reading"

    Read Bossy Pants and listened to it on audio. Sitting in an airport reading it, a woman walked up to me and said, "excuse me, but I want to laugh like you are laughing. What are you reading?"
    It's that funny.
    Love the audio as Tina Fey is a wonderful performer and her inflections add a lot to the experience.

    Loved Christmas! Wondering if we can meet in the middle? Maybe Vegas? Or Tahoe? Or Disneyland? What do you think?

    Blew me away Tina Fey! Definitely worth listening to a second time. Thanks for the laughs and pee squirts, Bossypants.

    "Enjoyable"

    Witty and down to earth, though I did think Amy Poehler's book was more fun to read. Well composed and entertaining regardless
