I Know I Am, But What Are You? | [Samantha Bee]

I Know I Am, But What Are You?

Critics have called her “sweet, adorable, and vicious.” But there is so much more to be said about Samantha Bee. For one, she’s Canadian - whatever that means. And now, she opens up for the very first time about her checkered Canadian past. With charming candor, she admits to her Lennie from Of Mice and Men-style love of baby animals, her teenage crime spree as one-half of a car-thieving couple, and the fact that strangers seem compelled to show her their genitals.

Publisher's Summary

Candid, outspoken, laugh-out-loud funny essays from the much-loved Samantha Bee, the Most Senior Correspondent on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

Critics have called her “sweet, adorable, and vicious.” But there is so much more to be said about Samantha Bee. For one, she’s Canadian - whatever that means. And now, she opens up for the very first time about her checkered Canadian past. With charming candor, she admits to her Lennie from Of Mice and Men-style love of baby animals, her teenage crime spree as one-half of a car-thieving couple (Bonnie and Clyde in Bermuda shorts and braces), and the fact that strangers seem compelled to show her their genitals. She also details her intriguing career history, which includes stints working in a frame store, at a penis clinic, and as a Japanese anime character in a touring children’s show.

Samantha delves into all these topics and many more in this thoroughly hilarious, unabashedly frank collection of personal essays. Whether detailing the creepiness that ensues when strangers assume that your mom is your lesbian lover, or recalling her girlhood crush on Jesus (who looked like Kris Kristofferson and sang like Kenny Loggins), Samantha turns the spotlight on her own imperfect yet highly entertaining life as relentlessly as she skewers hapless interview subjects on The Daily Show. She shares her unique point of view on a variety of subjects as wide ranging as her deep affinity for old people, to her hatred of hot ham. It’s all here, in irresistible prose that will leave you in stitches and eager for more.

    "Amusing"

    It made me smile and laugh, but it wasn't fantastic. Good use on my credit, though

    "I love Samantha Bee on The Daily Show, but..."

    this book was not very funny or entertaining. The last chapter was cute. I would recommend picking up the book at the library or B&N and just reading the last chapter.

    "Gag"

    Not even close to funny, very depressing and sad, couldn't get thru the first hour...maybe funnier on a stage in front of a bunch of drunks but sad as a story

    "Wha?"

    Hmmmm a pet person eh? I Don't think so. This is a sad story. Most funny people have a sad up brInging. Gives a new insight into Sam. If I was not so structured, I would have given up on this in the first 10 minutes. Sam you're great, but as you know your life sucks. This is why you're great. Unfortunately, I am not sure who convinced you to tell us your lifes story. No offense. Must have been the money.
