Audible Editor Reviews

Ronald Reagan, the 40th president of the United States, isn’t quite Richard Pryor in Stand-Up Reagan, but this collection of jokes and anecdotes from political speeches shows his ability to connect with crowds through humor.
Reagan used his quips to great political effect. By joking about rival Walter Mondale’s "youth and inexperience", he neutralized questions about his age, one of his political liabilities in the 1984 presidential election. The man who ended the Cold War jokes about free speech and 10-year waits to get a new car in the Soviet Union. At other times, he tells self-deprecating jokes about his experiences in show business.
Recorded live at various political events, Reagan’s quips and stories demonstrate his impeccable timing and public warmth.

Short and Still Funny

Where does Stand-Up Reagan rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Near the top.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Of course, President Reagan; he is the title character person in the book and it focuses on his witty humor.

Which character – as performed by the narrator – was your favorite?

No narration, clips from President Reagan's speeches over the years.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did listen to this book in one is rather short so it's not really an issue to do so.

Any additional comments?

I would have liked if they would have put into the description that what accounts for half the length of the book is a repeat of the entire first half set of jokes, so really what you have is first half good jobs from years ago -- second half, repeat without as much music and such. I did listen to the whole book several times and still found it enjoyable even with the repetition.
