Publisher's Summary

Comedian Jim Norton is dirty...really dirty...the kind of dirty that makes The Aristocrats look like a knock-knock joke. Fortunately for him, his kind of dirty humor has earned him the distinction of being third microphone on the immensely popular Opie & Anthony syndicated radio show. In Happy Endings, Jim brings his raw, hilarious, and offensively honest comedy to Audible® listeners.

Jim will discuss everything from his affinity for hookers to stalking Black Sabbath and Alan Alda to always getting stuck with the hot girl's fat friend. He will share some of his experiences with Opie and Anthony, including his arrest on the infamous Voyeur Bus (a bus filled with naked girls that drove around Manhattan flashing passers-by). Many more heartwarming stories will be included in what is sure to be the most controversial title of 2007.

In addition to being a regular on the Opie & Anthony Show, Norton sells out comedy shows across the country. He starred on the recent HBO series Lucky Louie and was a regular on Comedy Central's Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn. He has appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Show with David Letterman, and other national shows.

Norton had this to say about his forthcoming title: "It's ironic that many of the stories revolve around prostitution, because that's where all proceeds from this...will be going. Actually, that's probably more disgusting and creepy than ironic."

    "Jim Norton is a GOD"

    Little Jimmy is not only a great comedian but a great author as well. With his brutally honesty about his life and his comedy this book should be bought for anyone who wants an honest look into the life of this comedian.

    "Good comic, Good book"

    Maybe I learned a little too much about his habits with "tainted" ladies, but this was a funny book. He is very down on himself sometimes, but that is his schtick. A nice listen and I would bet that it is much better than the printed version as he is the reader.

    "Jim Norton really is a Zilch and proves it"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Jim Norton is a dismal person, and probably needs a hug. This book would depress my friends, and if I recommended it, they would probably reconsider our friendship.


    What was most disappointing about Jim Norton’s story?

    There are no redeeming qualities to the story. Some okay laughs. Overall a big downer.


    What three words best describe Jim Norton’s performance?

    Jim Norton is highly self aware, but not very self reflective. He describes his enjoyment of prostitutes and empty sex. Very difficult to empathize with someone so unemphatic.


    Do you think Happy Endings needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Please, no. It would be more of the same, and the world just doesn't need it.


    Any additional comments?

    Jim Norton is funny on stage, in his career as a professional comedian. But in this book, you get too much information, and it did not enhance my enjoyment of his comedy in any way.

    "Extremely vulgar"

    I'm not a prude - I love Lewis Black and plenty of other foul-mouthed comedians - but this book was over the top. I stopped listening before the end.

    It was honest and well-written, however.

    "Depraved and hilarious"

    Jim Norton is certainly not an easy thing to listen to if you like things like boundaries and have a moral compass. If you are unburdened of such things, then you should absolutely eat this up! He is quite the silly goose!

    "Strangely funny"

    I have not heard of Norton before. My first reaction to the book was disgust but I found it funny a few minutes later. Yes, the humor is very immature but none the less it made me laugh. A book that can make me laugh all the way through gets a good grade regardless of how vulgar the humor and it is very vulgar.

    "I like this book more than exclamation points!!!!!"

    This book is so much funnier than the comic strip Howard Huge, that I give it a Big A! James makes it his dooty to make us loff, again and again, so much it gives me the twitchels. E-Rocks! I can't wait to listen to the rest, but the first 7 minutes have been great! If I had a Nicolini for every time I LOL'd, I'd be a fancy man....................... aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand I can only sum up with one word: Frunkus (which means "Meow" in the ancient Norden dialect).

    "Degenerate rubbish"
    Would you try another book from Jim Norton and/or Jim Norton?

    I would never try another book from this small sad man, who apparently thinks that indulging in memories of his depravity is interesting to anyone other than the therapist he needs to see.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jim Norton again?

    Not listening to this idiot ever again.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I narrator voiced his memoir in a monotone, making the story even less interesting.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I felt sad that I'd wasted some time listening to this crap.

    "Boogers and piss"

    A hysterical and honest collection of writings from Norton's life. I'm a particular fan of his self analysis of poems and letters he wrote and received growing up.
