Summary:

In the early 1970s, as our nation's youth railed against every conceivable societal norm, a funny-looking teenage Jew started turning up at open mike nights in various New York City comedy clubs. Surprisingly, he didn't suck. That funny-looking teenage Jew is now the even funnier-looking middle-aged comedian Gilbert Gottfried, who despite his transparent shortcomings has managed to carve out a hardly-respectable career - and a reputation for shock and awe unrivaled outside the Bush administration. With this scathingly funny book of rants and musings, Gottfried sullies an entirely new medium with his dysfunctional worldview. "One of the most touching, eye-opening historical accounts - one day I may even read it." - Howie Mandel "This is definitely the loudest book I have ever read. It changed my life. After reading it I decided to go through transgender surgery." - Bob Saget "Truly the funniest book ever, by one of the funniest guys on the planet!" - Paul Shaffer, musical director, Late Show with David Letterman

    Loved this book, love Gilbert. A bit of a spoiler, he stays "in character" for the entire book. It was 10 hours give/take but it went by fast. An easy listen, plenty of chuckles.
