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)

    "Adequate but not great..."

    I blame myself listening Bossypants right before giving this one a listen.... I found the audiobook entertaining in parts and I must admit you have to be pretty much devoid of a sense of humour or just plain dense not to laugh at some of her jokes but it wasn't that memorable or great of a title to me.

    The thing that made me actually finish listening to the book was not so much the story itself but the performance by Sarah. Let's face it, Sarah is pretty funny and her quirky, in your face, spunky, no holds bar attitude while narrating this book kept you listening. She was the shining star in the whole thing.

    The book felt long... I honestly must say the book felt really long and after listening to it I honestly don't remember half of what I listened. I do remember that I laughed at parts, smiled at parts and was thoroughly entertained in others. I also was quite bored at parts and found myself checking how much longer it will take for the book to end (not a good sign).

    It's a good book, it is something that you can listen to and find some light adult rated fun. Far from amazing or just plain great even...

    "a surprisingly nice, unsurprisingly funny memoir"

    I thought this memoir would be...snarkier. It's low in snark, self-pity and self-congratulations, high in clarity, warmth, and intelligence. It provides sharp social commentary and fantastic insight into the profession of comedy. I have a whole new appreciation of Sarah Silverman's cleverness and relevance.

    Also: I was never, not even for one second, bored. There were no self-indulgent narrative tangents or preciously clever diatribes. This is very good, very disciplined writing.

    Impeccably narrated by the author.

    "Strong start, but it really pooped out"

    In the beginning of the book I thought it was excellent. It made me declare "I love Sarah Silverman!". But then somewhere near the middle, the writing got a little messy. It wasn't as introspective. It wasn't written with any chronology or progression... No climax. I just started wishing she'd stop talking about herself and her "Jewy-ness" and her pot smoking and the TV episode she wrote about banging Jesus... Bleck. By the time it was over I was just happy it was over.

    "A light, entertaining read"

    While I'm not a huge Sarah Silverman fan (I find her fascination with human bodily functions distressing, and suggest you not listen while eating breakfast!), I enjoyed this book. It's a light read, peppered with stories from her somewhat traumatic childhood and early years as a comic. It is far from a "tell-all," however--she glosses over her dating life and wastes a lot of time in non-sequitor humor bits, but it was engaging enough that I wasn't bored.

    "Laugh out loud funny, but..."

    Sarah is a great narrator and many of the stories were very funny and poignant, but the detailed description of each season of the show, and the participants was a little tedious. At times it seemed like an extended "acknowledgements" page. Overall, a worthwhile listen. Sarah is a true comic genius.

    "Never pass up an author-read comedian bio"

    When a brilliant and talented comedian writes a biography and then reads it to you , in my experience it's pretty much worth the price of admission, no matter what the content.

    These are people who have honed their delivery to razor-sharp perfection, and Silverman is no exception. In fact, of my four favorite Audible comedian autobio authors (the other three being Tina Fey, Kathy Griffin, and Chelsea Handler), Silverman definitely gets the narrator's edge for being the most beautifully articulate. Which, we learn in the book, is probably a direct product of her mother's careful movie-listing-perfected elocution.

    Silverman's cut-glass, ladylike delivery of often outrageous, disgusting (and otherwise hilarious) material is what makes her so entertaining to listen to, so I can't imagine how the print book could in any way measure up to the audio version.

    Not that this book is just a bunch of jokes; this a a real memoir and anyone interested in how successful entertainers rise to the top should find it interesting --and touching-- on its own merits.

    "One if the worst books"

    I love Sarah Silverman but this was work to get through. Her heart was not in or she is just a poor book writer.
    So disappointed.

    Instead I would recommend Tina Fey's book.
    Sorry Sarah love your work but just not this. :-(

    "Got old fast"

    The first part of the story was entertaining but it got old fast. A book that was a lot to do about nothing. Not waste your time.

    "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.
