©2010 Sarah Silverman (P)2010 HarperCollins Publishers
"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)
This is classic Silverman at her best. noone but her could pull it off. while the story of her life so far isn't the main draw, its her insightfulness and humor she brings to the table (along with her snarky narrative skills) that really shine. She manages to throw in a few gems of behind the scenes action that bring insight and laughter. Thank you Sarah!
Silverman gives a fine dead-pan reading of her own material.
That a particular part of her body is not used whatsoever for its intended purpose, in fact, its clean enough to eat off of.
Entertaining and easy to follow. Sarah is entertaining and relatable. She easily avoids getting caught up in vapid ramblings, whic, for me, seems to be a common pitfall in comedian autobio's. Great book to just relax and unwind with.
I do not think there is anyone like Sarah Silverman. Love her or hate her, she is who she is and doesn't make excuses for it. Yeah, she's crude and may make you uncomfortable, but she's smart and funny as hell. I laughed out loud and didn't care that the people around me thought I was a nut job. If you get offended easily or can't take the potty talk, then you shouldn't listen to this book. If you are liberal and appreciate a good laugh, you'll enjoy this honest look at Sarah and her life as a comedian.
I've loved and disliked Sarah Silverman both at the same time. I have always thought her a little more blunt about sex and bodily functions than I felt comfortable with. That being said, I adore people who speak truths and can look at their own imperfections with clarity. She reads the way she speaks and found myself busting out in laughter and a couple times almost-cry. She didn't leave me hanging in the latter emotion long though before she had me laughing again.
At the end of this book I put down my phone and thought, "I could actually hang out with this immature 40 something."
Writer, Journalist, Drummer. Columnist for the Houston Chronicle and feature writer for various publications. Currently writing my 1st book.
Sarah Silverman gives us a very honest, candid look into some of the darkest times in her life, delivering it all with a healthy amount of humor and plenty of the filthiness she has made so famous. If you dig Sarah Silverman, you will dig this book.
I regret that I took so long to read/listen to it.
