I'm Not High | [Jim Breuer]

I'm Not High

With his goofy smile, sleepy eyes, and stoner's laugh, Jim Breuer might not appear to be the most introspective comedian out there. The fact that Jim Breuer made his mark playing Goat Boy on Saturday Night Live and a recalcitrant toker in the stoner classic Half Baked doesn't help his reputation at all. But in I'm Not High, we meet a whole new Jim Breuer.

Publisher's Summary

A deeply personal, deeply hilarious memoir from one of America's most beloved Saturday Night Live comedians.

With his goofy smile, sleepy eyes, and stoner's laugh, Jim Breuer might not appear to be the most introspective comedian out there. The fact that he made his mark playing Goat Boy on Saturday Night Live and a recalcitrant toker in the stoner classic Half Baked doesn't help his reputation at all. But in I'm Not High, we meet a whole new Jim Breuer: the Jim who tours the country with his whole family in tow; the Jim who cares for his ailing 85-year-old father; the Jim who considers himself a deeply spiritual person.

I'm Not High reveals the complex man behind the simpleminded persona, bringing to life true stories from a career that has spanned two riotous (yet somehow semi-righteous) decades.

Jim dishes on everything from the SNL years to his early adventures in film. The cast of characters in I'm Not High includes Chris Farley, Dave Chapelle, and Tracy Morgan - who all taught Jim lasting lessons about the high-stakes game of fame. He also chronicles the constant role his family has played in keeping him honest. Whether he's arguing with his wife about religion (Is it okay to believe in God but not believe in church?), trying to take care of his kids, or helping his father get through the day with his dignity intact, it's clear that some of his best material comes from his best moments as a son and a dad and a husband.

    "Enjoyable! Great Impressionist"

    Listening to Bruer impersonate Dave Chapelle and Tracy Morgan was worth the price alone, but the performance of this book is also great. Jim Bruer is a decent man, a great stand-up and a wonderful storyteller. Two thumbs up.

    "Funny & Touching"
    If you could sum up I'm Not High in three words, what would they be?

    I got halfway through the book when I saw the audiobook and boy let me tell you I am happy with both. Someone mentioned that the book was good but the audiobook version was even better and they were right. Jim Breuer adds so much to the telling of his story, not just by reading only the way he can, but by his rambling into extra stories throughout. This book was truly touching and funny. Jim Breuer seems like a real down to earth guy that I would really like to hang out with.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes

    "Comedic Genius"

    I LOVED this audio book! Reading the actual book wouldn't have been as terrific, Jim Breuer's imitations of Chris Rock, Norm MacDonald, Tracy Morgan, his mother and his father, among others, was an absolute treat. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!!

    "Not a good book , but a GREAT book!!!! SERIOUSLY"

    Honestly I had no idea who Jim Breuer was before I purchased this book. So beautifully written and performed, he is such a gifted story teller and comedian. WARNING….at times I was laughing so hard I thought I was going to have to pull off the road or have an accident. Jim is TOTALLY hilarious without being crude !!!! It is touching and surprisingly inspirational. I am an audible book junkie and this is one of the few I will listed to again.

    "Much better than expected"

    I think Breuer is annoying and I really had no interest in listening to this book. I didn't like all the God stuff in it either. But with that said, this book was really funny and his stories on Dave Chapelle, DeNiro and Pesci were hilarious. To his credit, he does excellent impersonations and his ability to change is voice to do certain characters really is impressive. He also did a great job narrating as well!
