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.

    "So Entertaining. Hope He Writes Another!"
    Where does I'm Not High rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In this category. One of the top 3.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of I'm Not High?

    The Joe Pesci, De Nero chapters, when he is sharing his experience with SNL and the Jo Pesci Show. A close second is when he tells his story about actually getting invited to audition and then lands his gig on SNL.


    Which character – as performed by Jim Breuer – was your favorite?

    He does so many great impersonations but his comic interpretation of Jo Pesci is the most hilarious!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I loved all the references to coincidences, kismet or divine intervention, throughout his life. There is a thread that runs through the book regarding his belief in a greater power and for me, it made it all the more fun to read.


    Any additional comments?

    I was never bored while listening to this book. Many stories made me laugh out loud, especially because he impersonates so many celebrities and characters, which made it all the more hilarious. You don't want to read the book, you really need to listen to it. It just wouldn't be the same.

    "Better than being high"

    Jim Brewer's stand up is something to see. His days on SNL were historically funny. To here his first hand take on Hollywood and showbiz is an honor. Jim does a great job with this book. I you read it in paperback I would say you're actually doing yourself an injustice. Listening to him tell stories about his peers and use his impersonations is not something you get from paper, as well as the side bar comments. Hands down my favorite performance of an audio book yet.

    "not just a book"

    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.
