Kathy hit it out of the park!

What a fantastically, mesmerizing, hysterical, intelligent book this was!
I've always been a fan of Kathy Griffin's, now
in the words of (another icon) Howard Stern when referring to his most loyal fans, I'm a "SUPER FAN!
HEY NOW!"
Keep your unabridged scrutiny of the people who you have daily brushes of "fame" with coming with that unrelentingly insight and fearlessness!!!
"WOW!" This is definitely Grammy worthy!!!:)

Entertaining !

Any additional comments?

I listened to the last Kathy Griffin book and I was hooked! I am super thrilled that she came out with another book. The book is super entertaining with short stories about her celebrity run-ins. I definitely recommend listening to it as Kathy is the narrator!

Heard It Before

Love her but kinda disappointed as a lot of the run-ins have been talked about before. If you're a true fan of her stand up and have seen all of her specials and follow her closely, you might be disappointed in this.

it's everything you think it will be

This is my first Kathy book. Her stand up of course can't possibly be topped in book form, but this is a good read (listen). Tons of interesting, funny, entertaining stories about just about everyone.

The best part is that Kathy is the narrator on the audio book!

Sad

I really enjoy Kathy Griffin’s comedy. I finished this book because I can’t not finish a book, but it was painful. Sure, I laughed out loud a couple times . . . but literally like two times. I almost stopped liking her because of this audiobook.

Kathy Griffin is always a riot audio books seem to be better than her books, because it's almost like performance art..

I really liked this book as an audio book, which I stated in my title of the review. I have read and listened to it simultaneously. The one thing I will say is that if you are like myself and you buy the book with the audio book when they are available at the same time it says add narration for whatever the difference may be. Where you have a credit And you decide to use the credit towards it. Then, like my situation happened where I had to replace my Kindle, a ton of my books got deleted and Amazon had to resend them to me due to the fact that they were no longer adding the narration anymore to deal, therefore you are not able to retrieve the narration with the book anymore. Because when they offered it to when it came out and since he bought it when it came out doesn't me if you have to have it purchased for reset to you that feature gets disabled and that annoys me. So heads up if you have a device and it back Byers a lot because I'm disabled and I do utilize whisper sync etc.

As far as the stories go some of them were completely recycled and repackaged I do agree with some reviews but some of them definitely were ones I had not heard I think that it is her bee hive that is her box and her CDs etc. Of course looking to recognize it right away if it's retold and repackage thats good or bad because not everybody is going to listen to every single show and not everybody is going to read every single book or listen to every CD etc. so telling a story again is not necessarily a bad thing. If I was very surprised with. Literally when it got down to the x y z that she was able to literally pull names out of a hat of real people that had those last names that begin with those letters because some people may not know who Warren second was etc. The Michael Jackson story was really interesting and so wasn't some of the other few that I had never heard so I don't think a lot of it was really recycled. I jus think. Figure out about together of celebrities you've met. Some that have been heard at some that may have not been. Yes, some of them probably have been heard, but I really enjoyed this book. And I think that the audio book is fair to listen to, because it's almost like listening to a standup performance. Of hers because it's got in humor, as things are said.

couldn't finish it

She laughs while she is reading her own book which is a let down because what she wrote that she finds hysterical isn't that funny. I am a huge fan of hers, but I couldn't get past chapter 3.

Must Have More!

Kathy Griffin exceeds my expectations every time.

I don’t care about the personal lives of celebrities, but I do love hearing about Kathy’s experiences.
