Publisher's Summary

With wry wit and poignant humor, Louie Anderson, New York Times best-selling author and three-time Emmy Award-winning comedian starring in Zach Galifianakis's Baskets, shares his journey of turning life's challenges into joy as well as the wisdom he's gained from his mother. 
Louie Anderson has been channeling his beloved mom in his iconic stand-up comedy for decades - but she passed away before getting to see him reach new heights with his breakout role. 
Hey Mom is Louie's way of catching Ora Zella Anderson up on everything that has been going on in his life, including his continued struggles with food and family, but also how so much has changed for the better. He also has plenty of laugh-out-loud stories about his incredibly resilient mother and his 10 siblings, as well as observations on the absurdities of life that only Louie Anderson could make. 
Honest yet funny, Hey Mom is a loving tribute to Louie's mother and will surely inspire you to write a letter to your own mom.

I love Louie even more now

I've always loved Louie Anderson, I mean what's not to love? But after listening to his book where he writes letters to his mother whom he lost almost 30 years ago, I love him even more. The book is funny, profound, and at times, a bit sad. I certainly identify when he talks about his alcoholic father, and the mother who provided all of the love that he needed. I'm glad I got the audio book instead of reading it myself because it really comes to life listening to the author himself read aloud. Highly recommend! Now I need to go call my mom...

My story

I haved loved Louie since I first watched him do standup and fell more in love with him as Christine Baskets. Hey Mom felt like Louie was describing my family as I too grew up with an alcoholic father only thing is I still haven’t grown up and still carry scars of that childhood like Louie. My husband and I listened too it while driving 14 hours up and back to watch our daughter graduate from college and the audible book was thoroughly enjoyable and made a tedious drive seem to go by as we hung on everything Louie said . Here’s to all the strong women who grow strong kids! God bless you Louie! Love, June and yes it does truly get better❤️
