Publisher's Summary

A deeply personal, deeply hilarious memoir from one of America's most beloved Saturday Night Live comedians.

With his goofy smile, sleepy eyes, and stoner's laugh, Jim Breuer might not appear to be the most introspective comedian out there. The fact that he made his mark playing Goat Boy on Saturday Night Live and a recalcitrant toker in the stoner classic Half Baked doesn't help his reputation at all. But in I'm Not High, we meet a whole new Jim Breuer: the Jim who tours the country with his whole family in tow; the Jim who cares for his ailing 85-year-old father; the Jim who considers himself a deeply spiritual person.

I'm Not High reveals the complex man behind the simpleminded persona, bringing to life true stories from a career that has spanned two riotous (yet somehow semi-righteous) decades.

Jim dishes on everything from the SNL years to his early adventures in film. The cast of characters in I'm Not High includes Chris Farley, Dave Chapelle, and Tracy Morgan - who all taught Jim lasting lessons about the high-stakes game of fame. He also chronicles the constant role his family has played in keeping him honest. Whether he's arguing with his wife about religion (Is it okay to believe in God but not believe in church?), trying to take care of his kids, or helping his father get through the day with his dignity intact, it's clear that some of his best material comes from his best moments as a son and a dad and a husband.

    Story
    "Hilarious, heartbreaking and delightful"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Totally!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jim, duh!


    What does Jim Breuer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Probably going off script and making it seem like you're having a conversation with him as he recites stories from his life. There were lots of "um" and "uh" that you're trained to not do during public speaking. However, this is something most people do in their day-to-day conversations with friends and family.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were several. The part about the nagging sensation to talk his brother and other gut feelings that he had which ended with heartbreak.


    Any additional comments?

    My husband had been a huge Jim Breuer fan for years and he's constantly trying to get me to watch him. I needed something to get me through my day at the office so I picked this audiobook and I regret not heading to my local comedy club when Jim Breuer was in town. This was an absolutely insightful book that made me laugh out loud and tear up. There's a lot of heavy topics but funny stories along with way.

    Story
    "Freakin awesome."
    What made the experience of listening to I'm Not High the most enjoyable?

    I loved the versatility of his capability to express his emotions. He has a great story to tell and he did it very well.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    By far Jim himself


    What does Jim Breuer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His ability to impersonate the characters in his life that he speaks of


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I didn't listen to it and when sitting I listen to books over the course of a couple of days as I work I am a Rancher. But I would listen to it in one sitting no question


    Any additional comments?

    It's only my 4th or 5th audible book and I loved it

    "Story is told, not read, by the author."

    Former SNL cast member, Jim Breuer is a brilliant storyteller. He clearly is not reading this book which adds a great deal to his stories. When I wasn't laughing at his humor, I was stunned by some of the events / coincidences in his life. His story is great fun to listen to.

    "Good story however..."

    All in all this was a great book. But it just seem a little all over the place story wise. I don't know if Jim was improving during this recording or not, but he wasn't I probably find actually reading this book really difficult because the dialogue was l scattered and rarely was focus

    Story
    "Needs to be listened to"

    Listening to this book is like some strange combination between watching his stand up and listening to the fun uncle tell stories at a reunion. It was really entertaining though the message was occasionally strange. He wants to be a family comic now and thinks that God has been directing him towards this and has been giving him warnings his entire life. Not bad, just odd- mostly because it comes out of nowhere. If you like his stand up, this is definitely worth listening to.

    Do not read this book. Have one of the greatest modern comedic story-tellers perform it.

    And Jim you are absolutely correct about hospitals. Once you put an elderly or disabled in the hospital they keep them there forever. You are a funny and talented and wonderful person and your book came into my life at a perfect time coincidence? I think not!

    Story
    "So Entertaining. Hope He Writes Another!"
    Where does I'm Not High rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In this category. One of the top 3.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of I'm Not High?

    The Joe Pesci, De Nero chapters, when he is sharing his experience with SNL and the Jo Pesci Show. A close second is when he tells his story about actually getting invited to audition and then lands his gig on SNL.


    Which character – as performed by Jim Breuer – was your favorite?

    He does so many great impersonations but his comic interpretation of Jo Pesci is the most hilarious!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I loved all the references to coincidences, kismet or divine intervention, throughout his life. There is a thread that runs through the book regarding his belief in a greater power and for me, it made it all the more fun to read.


    Any additional comments?

    I was never bored while listening to this book. Many stories made me laugh out loud, especially because he impersonates so many celebrities and characters, which made it all the more hilarious. You don't want to read the book, you really need to listen to it. It just wouldn't be the same.
