This book is a revelation, a must read.
Flipping through these pages will act as the midwife to the birth of copious laughter.
Prose are ebulliently infested with a subtle yet celebrated acerbic commentary.
Double knot your shoes because this book will literally rock your socks off!
I cracked up when reading about all of the freaks and weirdo’s in his cab; Jimmy does an awesome job of throwing in joke after joke as he rifts off of the true insanity of New York City. But he also extracts thought provoking life lessons from these nut-jobs, something I definitely wasn’t expecting. Any guy who can learn something from crack-heads, sock puppeteers, and a guy with a beer-drinking goat (yes, somebody bought a beer drinking goat into his cab once) has my vote!
Fans of standup comedy will love the portions of the book where Jimmy discusses his experiences performing. There are wild stories in here, such as opening for Jeff Garlin (and yes, Larry David was there!), performing for New York City firefighters, and even doing a set for the New York Mets during a team party! Between driving his cab and performing comedy, this guy lives a pretty crazy life and it was really fun to read about.
Jimmy also discusses life with his pregnant wife, Jenny, whom he nearly drives insane, along with his relationship with his best friend, Dean. Together they dealt with Hollywood heartbreak, the trials and tribulations of making it in the city, and trying hard to find good public restrooms.
I highly recommend this book! Check it out and laugh your head off.
Along with some great laughs comes great advice!!! This book will not disappoint
