Publisher's Summary

From the outrageously filthy and oddly innocent comedienne and star of the powerful 2015 film I Smile Back Sarah Silverman comes a memoir—her first book—that is at once shockingly personal, surprisingly poignant, and still pee-in-your-pants funny. If you like Sarah's television show The Sarah Silverman Program, or memoirs such as Chelsea Handler's Are You There Vodka? It's Me Chelsea and Artie Lange's Too Fat to Fish, you'll love The Bedwetter.

What the Critics Say

"Silverman takes readers on a tour of the underground tunnel that is her mind, and believe me, it is as full of muck as the sewers of Paris. Only funnier....[A]n absurdist’s delight." (Booklist)

Adequate but not great...

I blame myself listening Bossypants right before giving this one a listen.... I found the audiobook entertaining in parts and I must admit you have to be pretty much devoid of a sense of humour or just plain dense not to laugh at some of her jokes but it wasn't that memorable or great of a title to me.

The thing that made me actually finish listening to the book was not so much the story itself but the performance by Sarah. Let's face it, Sarah is pretty funny and her quirky, in your face, spunky, no holds bar attitude while narrating this book kept you listening. She was the shining star in the whole thing.

The book felt long... I honestly must say the book felt really long and after listening to it I honestly don't remember half of what I listened. I do remember that I laughed at parts, smiled at parts and was thoroughly entertained in others. I also was quite bored at parts and found myself checking how much longer it will take for the book to end (not a good sign).

It's a good book, it is something that you can listen to and find some light adult rated fun. Far from amazing or just plain great even...

a surprisingly nice, unsurprisingly funny memoir

I thought this memoir would be...snarkier. It's low in snark, self-pity and self-congratulations, high in clarity, warmth, and intelligence. It provides sharp social commentary and fantastic insight into the profession of comedy. I have a whole new appreciation of Sarah Silverman's cleverness and relevance.

Also: I was never, not even for one second, bored. There were no self-indulgent narrative tangents or preciously clever diatribes. This is very good, very disciplined writing.

Impeccably narrated by the author.
