Publisher's Summary

This program is read by the author. 
It’s hard being a person, especially in a family, and no one knows that better than stand-up comedian, family man, and Live from Here head writer and performer, Tom Papa. 
How do you deal with a life filled with a whole host of characters and their bizarre, inescapable behavior? Especially when you’re related to them? Tom Papa is here to help you make sense of it all. Your Dad Stole My Rake is a hilarious and warm audiobook that saws deep into every branch of the family tree and uncovers the most bizarre and surprisingly meaningful aspects of our lives. He exposes everyone, from crazy aunts with mustaches, grandparents who communicate by yelling, and uncles who use marijuana as a condiment. 
Among the topics covered: 



Tiger Mom v. Ice-Cream Mom 
Stop Trying to Be Cool 
In Defense of Family Vacations 
No Fighting Before Coffee 
Least Popular Baby Names 
Wife Lie Detector 
Your Cat Thinks You’re Too Needy 
Anyone who has a family, grew up in a family, or has spent time with another human being will love this audiobook.

Critic Reviews

"I have been a close friend of Tom Papa for 17 years. His lack of ability to perceive even the most basic principles of human functioning have made him an invaluable asset to me as a friend and colleague.... I would definitely recommend whatever the name of this book is, because I know it comes from a place of pure nonsense without any knowledge of anything. He is really one of my favorite people." (Jerry Seinfeld, comedian and author of SeinLanguage)
"Finally a funny book about parenting. Great observations. Great writing. Actually funny. I've always known Tom was hysterical, now I know he is a great writer and a fantastic storyteller. Can Tom Papa write all books?" (Jim Gaffigan, comedian and author of Dad Is Fat)

Great For New Fans

To begin, Tom is one of our favorite comedians and we have seen all his specials. That being said, if you have seen his specials this book might be a bit redundant. Much of it is taken from his on stage act and so you are hearing many of the stories/bits he did there.
His new stories are funny and clever and think this is a great first effort for a very talented guy!
