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.

    "Tina Fey, what's not to love?"

    Been a huge fan of Tina Fey for a while and I bought Bossypants the first week it came out. Even though I'd already read it, I'd still recommend the audiobook because Tina Fey's inflections and the audio recording of various skits makes for an entertaining listen. Can't figure out where the PDF is that she kept referencing, though. Admittedly, I didn't try very hard.

    "I just keep listening on repeat"

    I never knew very much about Tina Fey, but a friend recommended this book and I'm so glad I listened! Tina Fey is so smart, so observant, so funny. I hung on every word, and have listened straight through at least 3 times now. It is the best thing to happen to my evening commute, I arrive home smiling and relaxed, she's that good!
    If I had one negative thing to say it is regarding the sound recording. The ends of sentences go hard quiet and it took some getting used to. Minor flaw.

    Actually more deep and insightful than it was laugh out loud funny, still I loved it and wish it was three times as long!

    "Thoroughly Enjoyed!"

    Be cautious listening in the car. Other drivers looked at me funny as I was laughing all by myself. Other than that, it's honest, humorous and terribly human!

    "Tina Fey Is Better Than Everyone Else"

    Whether it is her perfect comedic timing, or her endearing willingness to celebrate her own awkwardness, you can't help but love her. If you haven't heard a comedian read their own audiobook, I pity you. You have no idea how good an audiobook can be.

    Listen to this book right now.
