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.

Yes, This was a great story to read and laugh to
Less on the god stuff.
His comic and stand up
Loved it will read again
Jim Breuer himself he seem honest and open
Laugh a lot
Showed me side of Breuer that surprised me. Comes across as a very caring dad and thoughtful husband. Doesn't hide his flaws and shows a very human side. Very, very entertaining especially because of the voices of the characters that he is able to imitate. Loved this audio book.

Loved the book. I didn't know much about Jim Breuer and this book brought me up to speed with what he thinks are important times in his life. Through SNL to personal success, from single life to married with kids it is a interested story.
I'm biased, just to warn you. I enjoy his comedy. I love baseball too but I'm a Brewer fan. He loves his wife and kids too.
This book shouldn't even be available in print format. Having him read this book and he does the voices it's just hilarious.
He has a great story and you just might be inspired by him.
the first parts of the book started off a little hard for me bec it seemed like this was just another East Coast wise guy sharing his rambunctious youth with us.
BUT his growth as a person was really impressive and is worth hearing.
his narration sounded just like a live performance with impressions and (I assume) ad libbed lines.
overall, good book.
Yes, fun listen. Jim Breuer is so animated and entertaining.
His struggle to the top
