Audible Editor Reviews

Why we think it's Essential - Witty, finely-crafted, and meant to be heard, Bossypants is one of my favorite audiobooks of all time. Tina Fey knows how to deliver a good punch-line – and does so hilariously throughout her memoir. Her self-deprecating humor shines through, and this half-memoir, half-stand-up routine left me laughing for all in the subway car to hear. From her days in the Second City comedy troupe, to Saturday Night Live, to Hollywood, Fey's stories and memories will leave you in stitches. —Jess

Publisher's Summary

Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update", before "Sarah Palin", Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV.

She has seen both of those dreams come true.

At last, Tina Fey's story can be told. From her youthful days as a vicious nerd to her tour of duty on Saturday Night Live; from her passionately halfhearted pursuit of physical beauty to her life as a mother eating things off the floor; from her one-sided college romance to her nearly fatal honeymoon - from the beginning of this paragraph to this final sentence.

Tina Fey reveals all, and proves what we've all suspected: you're no one until someone calls you bossy.

Includes special, never-before-solicited opinions on breastfeeding, princesses, Photoshop, the electoral process, and Italian rum cake!

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    "Enjoyable"

    Witty and down to earth, though I did think Amy Poehler's book was more fun to read. Well composed and entertaining regardless

    "So much laughing!"

    Tina Fey, may she live forever! More than just brilliant writing and hilarious storytelling, she took me into her world for a while, and what a trip it was... Plus, her narration is the best!

    Story
    "Gave me what I was looking for...."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    No


    Would you be willing to try another book from Tina Fey? Why or why not?

    Yes, even though I expected Tina Fey's book to have me in stitches the whole time it didn't. But the times I did laugh it was very hard. The book was real and really got to look into the personal life of a great strong woman, actor, and mother.


    What three words best describe Tina Fey’s performance?

    Down-to-earth, your "older" friend that warns you to not go through what she did but also lets you know its good to make your own mistakes.


    Could you see Bossypants being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No... I love the intimacy of the book and don't think it should be taken out of its current forms.


    Any additional comments?

    Great buy no disappointment here!

    Story
    "Two peas in a pod"

    I listened to this after being delightfully bowled (sp?) over in laughter throughout Amy Poehler's "Yes Please". It is easy to see why these two soul sisters walk through life together. I have to say it was incredibly entertaining and engaging to listen to this book (Amy's too) through the voice of the comedian herself. Funny lady comedian audiobooks - my new favorite genre if that was actually indeed a thing and if not, it needs to be. Now on to stalk others who are confirmed to be Amy Poehler's best friend's and read their stories of course or, better yet, maybe I don't have to resort to stalking at all, maybe I will get done writing this review (on my phone in a plane with an hour left on the flight) and immediately be funneled (by my phone) to my next funny lady listening pleasure. Here's hoping 👏👏😭

    "Chuckles"

    I loved listening to Tina, but I was expecting a bit more wit. I expected to crack up when in reality I just chuckled here and there. They were good chuckles.
