Publisher's Summary

In the early 1970s, as our nation's youth railed against every conceivable societal norm, a funny-looking teenage Jew started turning up at open mike nights in various New York City comedy clubs. Surprisingly, he didn't suck. That funny-looking teenage Jew is now the even funnier-looking middle-aged comedian Gilbert Gottfried, who despite his transparent shortcomings has managed to carve out a hardly-respectable career - and a reputation for shock and awe unrivaled outside the Bush administration. With this scathingly funny book of rants and musings, Gottfried sullies an entirely new medium with his dysfunctional worldview.

You just want to hug that very funny man...

Where does Rubber Balls and Liquor rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Mister Gottfried is not a Christopher Hitchens or a Noam Chomsky. But I have to say I enjoyed every minute of his book. Since the early '70s, he had a "brilliant" career and he recounts the adventure with his priceless wit.
