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.

Like being at the Comedy Club!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Gilbert Gottfried is a Master Comedian. I have read/listened to other comedians' books and they are basically their stand-up act in written form. Gottfried is more of a story teller and his book is funny without being a string of jokes loosely tied together.

Funny but GG delivers it slowly

A funny book with alot of interesting and humorous moments, I love that Gilbert reads it however he reads a bit slow for my liking. worth listening to, would buy again maybe but only as a readable book
