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)

    "If you love Sarah, you will love this book!"

    It was very pleasant to listen to Sarah Silverman read her own book. I thought it was very fascinating on how some of her life experiences were integrated in the Sarah Silverman program. She is very opinionated and is not afraid to go in to details about any aspect of her life. It was surprising to learn of the many well known comedians that influenced Silverman's own career. If you're looking for an entertaining retrospective or just a good laugh, i highly recommend it.

    "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...

    "Enjoyable, refreshing frankness"
    What did you love best about The Bedwetter?

    I'm not a big Sarah Silverman fan. Her gross-out comedy is just not my cup of tea. But her memoir is honest and frank, and you can tell from it that she is a genuinely kind person who has made a lot of mistakes that she regrets during a time that she maybe didn't like herself that much. As a woman, I can really identify with that. In addition, she has been in comedy for a long time, so her memories are an interesting glimpse into the comedy scene in the 90s.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It was sweet


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    You could definitely feel her emotion when she told stories of her past.


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

    This question is dumb.


    Any additional comments?

    I am still not a fan of Sarah Silverman's comedy (except for the Matt Damon song), but I am now sort of fond of her as a human being.

    "Not that interesting"

    Her life before she became famous was not really that funny or particularly interesting. Jen Lancaster and Chelsea Handler's memoirs are much funnier. Sorry Sarah!

    "Amazing start, slows down by the end"

    The first half of the book was super interesting and showed a side that was funny, introspective, and kind in the midst of some pretty crazy life events. She balanced very tough stories with a moment of humor put in at just the right time. The second half (post mid-point break) was entertaining but didn't have me locked in like the first half. Still overall an enjoyable book that shows the thinking of (as she might say) a very three dimensional person.

    "Great, immersive memoir but some lack awareness"

    Sarah's read was fantastic and I ended up liking her more as a result of the story. However, I disagree with her take on using slurs in humor and don't think she had much introspection or empathy in her discussion. A few slurs in the reading so heads up for that. Overall, would recommend.
