Summary:

Amy Poehler is hosting a dinner party and you're invited! Welcome to the audiobook edition of Amy Poehler's Yes Please. The guest list is star-studded with vocal appearances from Carol Burnett, Seth Meyers, Michael Schur, Patrick Stewart, Kathleen Turner, and even Amy's parents, Yes Please is the ultimate audiobook extravaganza.

Also included? A one night only live performance at Poehler's Upright Citizens Brigade Theater. Hear Amy read a chapter live in front of a young and attractive Los Angeles audience.

While listening to Yes Please, you'll laugh, you'll cry, and you'll become convinced that your phone is trying to kill you. Don't miss this collection of stories, thoughts, ideas, lists, and haikus from the mind of one of our most beloved entertainers. Offering Amy's thoughts on everything from her "too safe" childhood outside of Boston to her early days in New York City, her ideas about Hollywood and "the biz," the demon that looks back at all of us in the mirror, and her joy at being told she has a "face for wigs", Yes Please is chock-full of words, and wisdom, to live by.

    Great listen! Really enjoyed the story of her life to date.

  • Jessica B

    Really enjoyable listen. Liked hearing Seth Meyers' chapter about Amy. There were some great little nuggets of life wisdom in this book, mixed with humor and silliness. Lots of heart. I'd like to be Amy's friend, too.

  • Jessica C

    Real fun listen! Amy Poehler tells it like it is. The special guests add a whole other level to the listen. Very much enjoyed!

  • MA A

    Laughed out loud more than usual. Very clear images painted and very relatable. Loved the stories and the pace of the reading. Well written and well read.

  • Nick T

    The style was unique put fell a little short for me. I was hoping for a little more depth in the stories. Always great to have the author of a biography also be the narrator.

  • Jill T

    This was a fun read. My favorite part was the section about working moms and stay at home moms; it was worth reading just for that section alone! Amy has a huge heart and I feel like it really shows in her writing.

  • Katherine Koch

    This is the BEST audiobook I've ever listened to! Even if you've read the book, you have to listen to this. It is so well done. I've listened to at least one hundred audiobooks and my bar is set high for narrators. The wrong one can ruin a book and the right one elevates it. She's hilarious and I want to be her friend even more after listening to this. She's so honest and funny. I love how she has her friends and family in this. It was very well done. Extremely entertaining. Please do yourself a favor and listen to this now!

  • Miriam Morgan

    Amy is smart and funny and her personality really comes through in her narration

  • Krista Davis

    Not just a plain read through! At times I looked like a crazy person laughing hysterically while driving and/or sitting in my car! Thanks for keeping it real Amy!
