Seinfeld may be a great writer but this audiobook is horrible. It’s like a stand up comedy special but before every joke some monotone person tells the jokes title, making flow impossible.
We bought this for a family road trip and loved it. The history of Jerry’s beginning and hearing how comics think is interesting and we like how the material is broken up into decades. We were all laughing and repeating the jokes after, because everything relates to real life. It’s fun to listen to between other reads as well.
I wish it was just him talking.
I love Jerry, and have followed his career across decades. I love seeing him in “Comedians in Cars...” because I love his interaction with other comics going over material. It’s the one case that I don’t mind seeing my sausage being made. But when it came to listening to this book, I found it incredibly dull. Perhaps it’s the format, or perhaps it’s just the delivery - without laughs behind it - and the fact that I’ve heard this material countless times over the decades, that made me not really enjoy it. I knew what I was getting going into it, so I’m not disappointed, just...whelmed.
I've seen Jerry live at least 3 times live, and this is almost as good as it gets to being there without waiting in the lines to get the tickets! If I could give this one 6 stars, I would give it that. If you ever want to learn about comedy, this is one to read, yet furthermore he just has continuous line after line that gets you going. You don't want to miss this one! Amazing!
I love Jerry, he’s classic quality talent.
