Publisher's Summary

From the outrageously filthy and oddly innocent comedienne and star of the powerful 2015 film I Smile Back Sarah Silverman comes a memoir—her first book—that is at once shockingly personal, surprisingly poignant, and still pee-in-your-pants funny. If you like Sarah's television show The Sarah Silverman Program, or memoirs such as Chelsea Handler's Are You There Vodka? It's Me Chelsea and Artie Lange's Too Fat to Fish, you'll love The Bedwetter.

Critic Reviews

"Silverman takes readers on a tour of the underground tunnel that is her mind, and believe me, it is as full of muck as the sewers of Paris. Only funnier....[A]n absurdist’s delight." (Booklist)

Fun Read

Entertaining and easy to follow. Sarah is entertaining and relatable. She easily avoids getting caught up in vapid ramblings, whic, for me, seems to be a common pitfall in comedian autobio's. Great book to just relax and unwind with.

A True Original

I do not think there is anyone like Sarah Silverman. Love her or hate her, she is who she is and doesn't make excuses for it. Yeah, she's crude and may make you uncomfortable, but she's smart and funny as hell. I laughed out loud and didn't care that the people around me thought I was a nut job. If you get offended easily or can't take the potty talk, then you shouldn't listen to this book. If you are liberal and appreciate a good laugh, you'll enjoy this honest look at Sarah and her life as a comedian.

Unexpectedly Frank.

I've loved and disliked Sarah Silverman both at the same time. I have always thought her a little more blunt about sex and bodily functions than I felt comfortable with. That being said, I adore people who speak truths and can look at their own imperfections with clarity. She reads the way she speaks and found myself busting out in laughter and a couple times almost-cry. She didn't leave me hanging in the latter emotion long though before she had me laughing again.
At the end of this book I put down my phone and thought, "I could actually hang out with this immature 40 something."

Candid...Honest...Funny!

Sarah Silverman gives us a very honest, candid look into some of the darkest times in her life, delivering it all with a healthy amount of humor and plenty of the filthiness she has made so famous. If you dig Sarah Silverman, you will dig this book.

I regret that I took so long to read/listen to it.

Hilarious! My favorite audio book so far.

loved it so much that I sometimes go back and re-read (ok, I mean re-listen) to parts of it. the funniest audio book I've read by far.

Amazing start, slows down by the end

The first half of the book was super interesting and showed a side that was funny, introspective, and kind in the midst of some pretty crazy life events. She balanced very tough stories with a moment of humor put in at just the right time. The second half (post mid-point break) was entertaining but didn't have me locked in like the first half. Still overall an enjoyable book that shows the thinking of (as she might say) a very three dimensional person.

Great, immersive memoir but some lack awareness

Sarah's read was fantastic and I ended up liking her more as a result of the story. However, I disagree with her take on using slurs in humor and don't think she had much introspection or empathy in her discussion. A few slurs in the reading so heads up for that. Overall, would recommend.
