Longtime comedian Mohr, formerly of Saturday Night Live and currently executive producer/host of NBC's Last Comic Standing, knows how to be funny, but was as clueless as anyone else when it came to parenthood: "one of the shitty parts" of parenthood is that "there aren't any do-overs. You learn on the fly and do the best you can." Even so, Mohr makes it abundantly clear that, despite some mistakes, he has enjoyed every minute of being a parent to his son, Jackson, and he mines it here for comedy gold. Mohr's dead-on insights and sharp observations ring true regarding serious issues like spanking and step-parenting, as well as lighter subjects like his son's first haircut. Mohr also finds pointed humor in unhappy topics, like his attempt to have another child with his second wife; he's more than candid about his lousy swimmers. Mohr's stand-up sensibility is occasionally trumped by his love for his son, but even then he stays honest and engaging: "As he grows, my heart sinks. The less he needs me, the more I need him."

"Insightful and witty. . . . Mohr’s take on parenting is ultimately as charming as it is irreverent."
