At 24, Sebastian Maniscalco arrived in LA with a suitcase and saved up minimum wages. He knew no one and nothing about standup comedy, but he was determined to go for it anyway. At 44, he's on the Forbes' list of highest earning comedians, sells out arenas, and has starred in four hit comedy specials including Why Would You Do That? on Showtime. Stay Hungry tells the story of the 20 years in between.

I love Greg Gutfeld let's just start with that. his humor is hilarious which is the point but... Greg's style of humor is best suited when he's the one delivering the punchlines. I just couldn't get into the book as much as I would if it would have been him reading it. the guy doing the reading was good enough that I was able to finish the book and take a lot away from it so that's why I give it 5 stars overall because the content is great!
