No Wonder My Parents Drank: Tales from a Stand-Up Dad

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Jay Mohr

Narrated By: Jay Mohr

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Date: May 2010

Duration: 7 hours 30 minutes


Comedian and actor Jay Mohr’s humorous memoir about the lunacy that ensues after reaching the blessed stage of parenthood.

Waxing poetic about circumcision and the benefits of the carpool lane, Mohr spins theories on spanking and ponders questions like “why do kids all wake up so damn early? It’s as if they are all preparing for life as longshoremen.” He goes on to describe the bizarre kinds of situations that all parents must face but can never be prepared for (when, for instance, his kid discovered his dog’s rear end) as well as moments of pure joy like taking his son to his first baseball game. An unorthodox tale of modern fatherhood in Hollywood, Mohr’s take on parenting is ultimately as charming as it is irreverent.


  • Michael Smith

    Warm, engaging, honest and so funny you should just wear an adult diaper because you will laugh until you pee in your pants. Jan's book, like his stand-up specials have that marvelous quality that makes you feel, not like a member of the audience, but more like part of the family.

  • Ian Small

    I enjoyed this book a great deal. Jay Mohr reading his own work really makes the audio version that much more enjoyable. A great selection for new or soon to be dads.

  • Kristyne Banwart

    Thoroughly enjoyable! I love when a book can make me laugh out loud and this one did several times.
