A Hilarious Book that Doesn't Result In Causing Moody Tigers To Rip Off Your Face,
This review is from: Tasteful Nudes: ...and Other Misguided Attempts at Personal Growth and Validation (Hardcover)
I finished reading Dave Hill's Tasteful Nudes a couple of days ago and I think I'm finally ready to rejoin society and talk about it. This is unequivocally the most hysterical book I have read in years. Dave Hill is a NYC based comedian/rock God and for those of you who follow him on Twitter, you already know how effortlessly funny he is. He will take a seemingly innocuous topic and squeeze every ounce of comedy out it until you're practically pleading for him to stop for his own personal safety.
In Chapter 1, Dave takes you on a literary kidnapping into the world of nude cruises, complete with unforgettable descriptions of unkempt ladyparts such as "a snow-covered ghillie-suit." If that's not a good enough selling point for a book, I don't know what is. In fact, based on that alone, you should buy this book immediately and let's knock "Fifty Shades of Grey" off the NY Times bestseller list. If I can be honest for a minute, one shade of grey is pretty much all you need, and you're basically just showing off with 50. That's not what Dave is about.
Look, I don't even know you people, but you seem like discerning readers. After all, you're taking the time to read the reviews before plunking down your hard-earned cash or stolen credit card numbers before purchasing this book. Just go for it. Where else are you going to get this level of entertainment for $15.99? You can't even see Siegfried and Roy for under $50 and you're essentially rolling the dice with getting your face ripped off by moody tigers.
So go ahead, treat yourself to something nice. You deserve it. This book will change your life. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll find yourself roaming the streets of NYC in the off chance that you'll "accidentally" run into Dave and instantly become BFF's. Of course that's just me. While you're at it, follow him on Twitter (@mrdavehill) and head on over to his website (davehillonline.com) and sign up for the email updates. They are equally as brilliant as this book. As a matter of fact, buy a couple of copies. They make great Father's day gifts and are sure to brighten the day of your death row pen pals as well.
