Publisher's Summary

What The Daily Show is to evening news, The Colbert Report is to personality-driven pundit shows. Stephen Colbert brings his sarcastic charm to a half-hour report, tackling the important issues of the day and telling his guests why their opinions are just plain wrong. Stephen stands for "truthiness" and his American right to copyright that word and claim ownership of it.

The author describes his audiobook as a simple audiobook from a simple mind: Stephen Colbert's. In plain conversational language, not to mention the occasional grunt and/or whistle, Stephen explains his take on the most pressing concerns of our culture: faith, family...hygiene.

Why now? Stephen fears America has lost its balls and he hopes to re-ballify us...even the ladies. Ladies can have balls: lady-balls too. Stephen likes to call those "Thatchers". Stephen will show how he got his mammoth swinging sack with tales of courage and vital documents from his own life, including the Mother's Day card he made at age six, disputed credit-card bills, and putt-putt score cards - all the major milestones.

Hilarious! Colbert at his best.

Would you listen to I Am America (And So Can You!) again? Why?

Yes, definitely. This book is hilarious, the comedic timing is genius, and Colbert is as funny as ever. If you love the Colbert Report or the Late Show, LISTEN TO THIS! Colbert is one of the smartest comedians I have ever watched/listened to.

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

Yes! It was hard to put down. Energy-packed and hilarity-packed book.

Pretty good.

It was pretty good, funny at times. Didn't keep me laughing non stop like the Colbert Report. Maybe the expressions or images get lost in translation. It didn't seem like fiction or non fiction. A lot of the same humor if you listen to the whole thing in one sitting but if you're a fan of Colbert, you'll like it.

Disappointing

What did you like best about I Am America (And So Can You!)? What did you like least?

There were moments where Stephen actually had life to the reading but unfortunately for a large majority of the book the reading was just flat. This was very similar to Jon Stewart's 1st audio book as well. I don't know why these guys who are so good on TV are reading their books so dryly.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The characters were interesting.

Would you be willing to try another one of Stephen Colbert’s performances?

Yes

Was I Am America (And So Can You!) worth the listening time?

Yes, but don't expect same quality as the show.

Any additional comments?

Hoping the newest book will be better....

Disappointing

Very disappointed. Feels like Mr. Colbert sat down and wrote the book in three seconds. Expected better from him.

Classic Colbert

Stands up to repeated listening. Touches on all the major political themes the show used to cover. Read by Stephen in his pitch perfect character. A must for any Colbert fan!

It is supposed to be funny, right? Very few laughs in this one for me. How I wish it had been better....
