Publishers Weekly Review

Mar 29, 2010 – Demonstrating that her penchant for swearing began at an early age, comedian Silverman begins her hilarious memoir by describing how, at age three, she gleefully responded to her grandmother's offer of brownies with “shove 'em up your ass.” Growing up in New Hampshire (“where cows are well done and Jews are rare”), Silverman naturally gravitated toward performing and moved to New York, where she attended and eventually dropped out of New York University to pursue a standup comedy career. Mixing show business moments (she wrote for Saturday Night Live for one season, but none of her sketches made it past dress rehearsal) with stories of her childhood and adolescence (punctuated by a persistent bedwetting problem), Silverman never shies away from poking fun at her own expense. Though she's best known for sexually explicit jokes, Silverman is able to address more serious subjects in the book without losing her edge, particularly her teenage struggle with depression and that her often abrasive public persona allowed her to “say what I didn't mean, even preach the opposite of what I believed.... It was a funny way of being sincere.” 8-page color insert.

Leave out the poltics

Ehh, the first half of the book is pretty funny, but then she seems to run out of steam as things go on, and it starts to get really boring. I enjoyed the stories of her growing up and the way that her tv series came about, laughed out loud a few times even..!

However, throughout the book, she starts sneaking in a few things about her political beliefs here and there... eventually resulting in her fawning over Obama and how wonderful he is, etc.. Bah! Just ruins the tone of the book and takes away from the funny stuff.

Excellent!

Heard Sarah on stern today (great interview) and rushed home to get her book on my iPad. Great purchase! Not for everyone, of course (you'll know after the first page if this is the book for you), but I can't get enough of Sarah and her book did not disappoint.

A Must Read

If you've ever laughed at Sarah Silverman (and who hasn't? Seriously.) This is a great book! I'm only a short way into it so I don't want to speak too soon but this might be the single most important book in the history of mankind. Ok maybe not. But still. It's right up there for me.

Sarah's writing style makes me laugh out loud. It makes it difficult to read around people.
