Publisher's Summary

From the outrageously filthy and oddly innocent comedienne and star of the powerful 2015 film I Smile Back Sarah Silverman comes a memoir—her first book—that is at once shockingly personal, surprisingly poignant, and still pee-in-your-pants funny. If you like Sarah's television show The Sarah Silverman Program, or memoirs such as Chelsea Handler's Are You There Vodka? It's Me Chelsea and Artie Lange's Too Fat to Fish, you'll love The Bedwetter.

What the Critics Say

"Silverman takes readers on a tour of the underground tunnel that is her mind, and believe me, it is as full of muck as the sewers of Paris. Only funnier....[A]n absurdist’s delight." (Booklist)

    "More depressing than funny"

    I chose this book thinking it would be an entertaining comedy, but got a depressing memoir instead. I didn't even finish it because it was dragging on and felt tedious and disjointed.

    "Some very funny parts"

    I just keep trying to love Sarah Silverman but I just don't think she's that funny. I thought maybe if I learned more about her through this book (I especially love when the author narrates the book) I'd understand her more and therefor become more fond of her. She has amazing credentials and I guess is a great comedy writer...in collaboration.
    I wasn't a fan of her Comedy Central show either. She's just not my cup of tea but if you love her you'll love this book. It does have some very funny passages, especially when she talks about her family and reads verbatim her father's voicemails. Otherwise Meh, I found myself checking to see how much time was left often.

    "Generally a downer"
    Would you try another book from Sarah Silverman and/or Sarah Silverman?

    Probably


    Would you recommend The Bedwetter to your friends? Why or why not?

    No


    Did Sarah Silverman do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes, but her general tone is depressive, imo.


    Could you see The Bedwetter being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I am a Sarah Silverman fan, which is why I purchased this book, but the tone of this book is not happy or funny, it's generally a downer with some super funny humor laced in. It's not bad, just not what I expected. It's not a "Yes, Please" or "Bossy Pants", just fyi.

    "Enjoyed about 1/4 of this book"

    Sarah narrates well, but I was hoping for something more than this cluster of random thoughts. I liked the beginning as it had continuity and flow. The rest is choppy and at times boring.

    "Slightly Foxy"
    Would you try another book from Sarah Silverman and/or Sarah Silverman?

    I would always try something at least once.


    Has The Bedwetter turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Nah, I love this stuff. It was just difficult to follow.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I was undressing her with my ears, so that was a plus. In terms of dislike... It was difficult to tell what was a joke and what was supposed to be serious.


    What else would you have wanted to know about Sarah Silverman’s life?

    I can't think of anything off the top of my head.

    I value intelligent stories with characters I can relate to. I can appreciate good prose, but a captivating plot is way more important.

    "Okay, but not her best work"

    Sarah Silverman is sometimes brilliant, and often just so-so. This is one of the so-so times.

    I think she's over-done the crudeness. Not because I'm a prude, but just because I'm numb to it from her over-use. Reminds me a bit of Howard Stern in that sense. It's not shocking anymore. Now it's just unfunny and drab.

    I wasn't terribly moved by this book, and having just listened to David Mitchell's autobiography the bar was really, really high for humor.

    I give it a solid "eh".

    "Good story, but started to drag."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I probably would not recommend it to a friend.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes.


    What else would you have wanted to know about Sarah Silverman’s life?

    Nothing.


    Any additional comments?

    About half way through, I started loosing interest. By 3/4ths, I had to struggle. May be the book? Might be my attention span?

    "ok but some of it is out there"

    Sarah has a great sense of humor and I laughed out loud at many part of this audio book, but there are some parts that are just really disgusting and gross... but then again, I think that's what she was going for..
    She narrates it herself, and does a good job.. Anyone else doing this material would not be able to make it sound as funny as she does..
    Would I listen to it again? No.... Was it worth the listen? I guess so, Did I grow from listening this book...no, I think I may have shurnk... Did I learn anything from this book? Yes..a lot of people in show business are really weird...

    "It's a book written for a contract likely"
    Would you try another book from Sarah Silverman and/or Sarah Silverman?

    No


    What could Sarah Silverman have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Had a ghost writer? Spent three times as long writing it? Done a comedy instead of an autobiography


    What about Sarah Silverman’s performance did you like?

    She's cute


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I saw a very different way of growing up and a successful career through scatology


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed Bossypants so much I thought it might have also been so well done.
