Publisher's Summary

Candid, outspoken, laugh-out-loud funny essays from the much-loved Samantha Bee, the Most Senior Correspondent on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
Critics have called her “sweet, adorable, and vicious.” But there is so much more to be said about Samantha Bee. For one, she’s Canadian - whatever that means. And now, she opens up for the very first time about her checkered Canadian past. With charming candor, she admits to her Lennie from Of Mice and Men-style love of baby animals, her teenage crime spree as one-half of a car-thieving couple (Bonnie and Clyde in Bermuda shorts and braces), and the fact that strangers seem compelled to show her their genitals. She also details her intriguing career history, which includes stints working in a frame store, at a penis clinic, and as a Japanese anime character in a touring children’s show.
Samantha delves into all these topics and many more in this thoroughly hilarious, unabashedly frank collection of personal essays. Whether detailing the creepiness that ensues when strangers assume that your mom is your lesbian lover, or recalling her girlhood crush on Jesus (who looked like Kris Kristofferson and sang like Kenny Loggins), Samantha turns the spotlight on her own imperfect yet highly entertaining life as relentlessly as she skewers hapless interview subjects on The Daily Show. She shares her unique point of view on a variety of subjects as wide ranging as her deep affinity for old people, to her hatred of hot ham. It’s all here, in irresistible prose that will leave you in stitches and eager for more.

I gotta ramble.

This book is so GD funny. I've listened to it twice, and both times I nearly had to pull off the side of the road because I was laughing so hard. Samantha tells the story of her twisted upbringing so well. The contrasts between her parental figures is just a recipe for hilarity. I loved this book and have recommended it to all of my friends. And truth be told, I peed a little during the last chapter, I was laughing so hard.

So Funny!

Samantha Bee is hysterical! I can't imagine actually reading this book when you can listen to it. I'm sure it is a funny read as well, but you would deffinitely miss something without Bee's impressions, mannerisms, and inflections. Really, really, funny!
