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!

    "Good advise!"

    Great listen! I am a female forester, hardworking and very dedicated to my job, husband and hobbies (canoe racing). It was nice to hear a light hearted story with meaningful advise. Also working in a male dominated career,it is good to hear others similar struggle. She has a great personality and so funny! I am also a conservative republican, and I think she is great!

    "Great listen!"

    Great audio book with interesting and funny stories throughout.

    I picked this up after listening to Amy Poehler's new book, which references this, and was perhaps spoiled by the multiple guests and such in Amy's book, so the absence of same was noticeable here.

    Still, a great listen overall, I'm just afraid Amy Poehler has set the bar pretty high for me now. :)

    "Empowering"

    Tina Fey is grounded and inspirational. I found this to be refreshing and stabilizing. It is great that there are females with influence using it for good.

    "Hilariously entertaining."

    I read/listened to this book in two days just while riding in the car. Tina made my commute enjoyable. I was either laughing out loud or nodding yes ridiculously as I could relate to many of her stories. She's one of the best narrators I've ever heard.

    "Officially now a Tina Fey Fan"

    I love this girl! She's entertaining and real and makes you think about things you haven't before. She's not afraid to speak her mind which is very inspiring. You will not be disappointed in this read.

    I was skeptical because I was not a fan of Amy Pohler's book where I thought she was just name dropping and bragging the whole time. Tina's book is very different and there is a lot more substance and life lessons that flow together harmoniously.

    Bravo Tina! Bravo!

    "Another reason to love Tina Fey!"
    Any additional comments?

    I would like to start by apologizing to those around me at work who put up with my constant laughing through the 5 1/2 hours of this audiobook. You handled it well.

    This book was absolutely hysterical. I've always loved Tina Fey because she has that special sense of humor that is the perfect blend of off the wall and slightly vulgar that I love so dearly. This book had my shaking in my seat trying to get a grip on myself and resulted in what had to be the fastest shift of my life because I was having such a great time.

    Listening to audiobooks can sometimes take away from the experience if you can't tell if you are listening to a human being or a text-to-speech program... *cough* Bernadette Dunne *cough.* Tina Fey added so much to the experience with her trailing off when she would say something weird or just talking in that awkward, confident voice when she was saying something ridiculous. I loved every second of it.

    Hilarious and insightful!

    "The funniest thing EVER!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I LOVED this book. It was so so so funny! Not only was it funny, but in the midst of laughing your head off, there was some invaluable wisdom to be learned .... especially for a young women beginning her professional life. I love it!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bossypants?

    The cruise story, the first pap smear story.... it was all funny!
