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.

    "Do not buy a paperback version of this book."

    First and formost I LOVED how this book was presented. I honestly don't know how anyone would want to buy a paperback version of this book when Jim Breuer himself is "Narrating". Now, I listened to Jay Mohrs book "Gasping for Airtime" and while I enjoyed the book for all of it's content and humor, it sounded very much like he was READING the book and he would inject his impresions when called for. In this case Jim is MAYBE using the book as a guideline and he is very enthusiastically and with genuine emotion telling you these stories strait from the heart. I did get a little tired of hearing the words MONSTER and CRUSHED, but I really liked hearing the story of his family, where he grew up and the journey he took to become a comedian. When I bought this book I had about 20 books in my ipod that I have yet to listen to and this one jumped to the front of the line and I blew through it over a 2 day period. I have 6 young kids so my time is limited, I lost sleep just to listen to this one cause I didn't want to turn it off. Nice job Jimmy B.

    "Funny book...little overly religious"
    Any additional comments?

    I like Jim, he is very funny. I got to see his stand up act at the local comedy club. His stories and routine were too funny! The book is pretty good to. At some points in the book iwas laughing so hard i was crying. His stories are very relateable. However, I'm not Christian nor religious in any way and he seems to base alot of the unknown or unusual events in his life on his religious beliefs. to me that a bit annoying, but if you are Christian you would definately see this as spiritual. I think this is a good book for any faith but if you are Christian and want a funny book you absolutely must read this one.

    "Get Jim Breuer's I'm Not High"

    This is an incredible audio book because it is read by Jim himself. In fact, I am sure he is just shooting from the hip many times which serves to enhance the storytelling. Jim's impressions are on the ball and hysterical. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Lots of great stories from his personal life, and of course some SNL stuff (The Chris Farley story, and the Chris Kattan story stand out). This is how an audio book should be like. 5 out of 5 stars. Thanks for a great read Jim!

    "Great book"

    If you want this book because you want a comedy book written a hilarious guy then this is not for you. The book is a great book. Jim is one of the best story tellers. Probably the best next to Artie Lange. The stories are, for the most part, feel good stories that I think anybody can relate to. They might not have you rolling around on the ground laughing but they're definitely worth hearing. Great book, Jim!

    Commuter with lots of time to listen to audiobooks to keep from road ragin'. Not that I would ever endorse or have been guilty of road rage.

    "Flying in Breuerniverse"
    What did you love best about I'm Not High?

    Breuer crushes it (a word he uses a lot)!!!! I enjoyed listening to Jim act out the voices of people in the book. Listening to him narrate was like having him in the passenger seat of my car during the long commute. He fiddles with aspect of enlightenment/chance of certain instances in his life that made him think about the beyond the supreme being.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Jim Breuer? Why or why not?

    As a comedian his voice is great and would definitely try another book from jimmy breuer.


    Have you listened to any of Jim Breuer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Whenever I listen to a biography or memoir, I supplement other videos, music to put into perspective what the author or person went through at that moment. However, Breuer being a comedian that he is, used some of the material in the book in previous comedy clubs.


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

    I tried saving the book for my commutes but had to force myself to stop listening at home because then I wouldn't have anything to listen to in the car.

    "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
