Editorial Reviews Review

Amazon Best Books of the Month, April 2011: Tina Fey’s new book Bossypants is short, messy, and impossibly funny (an apt description of the comedian herself). From her humble roots growing up in Pennsylvania to her days doing amateur improv in Chicago to her early sketches on Saturday Night Live, Fey gives us a fascinating glimpse behind the curtain of modern comedy with equal doses of wit, candor, and self-deprecation. Some of the funniest chapters feature the differences between male and female comedy writers ("men urinate in cups"), her cruise ship honeymoon ("it’s very Poseidon Adventure"), and advice about breastfeeding ("I had an obligation to my child to pretend to try"). But the chaos of Fey’s life is best detailed when she’s dividing her efforts equally between rehearsing her Sarah Palin impression, trying to get Oprah to appear on 30 Rock, and planning her daughter’s Peter Pan-themed birthday. Bossypants gets to the heart of why Tina Fey remains universally adored: she embodies the hectic, too-many-things-to-juggle lifestyle we all have, but instead of complaining about it, she can just laugh it off. --Kevin Nguyen


A masterpiece in comedy writing...I was hooked from the first word Sunday Telegraph Mightily enjoyable ... Bossypants shows that 30 Rock's voice is very much Fey's voice: pithy, smart and as ironic as being run over by an ambulance ... if she has a point to make, if she feels something deeply, she can make it funny. That's why she is a great comedian The Times My love for the divine Tina Fey is river deep, mountain high ... Bossypants is as hilarious, candid and self-deprecating as fangirls like me would expect -- Lauren Laverne Grazia Wry, clever, biting and brilliant Daily Telegraph --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tina Fey is Funny as &%$# - And Has a Life Story Worth a Listen
By Mark Alan Effinger on December 23, 2018
I so loved this book.
I especially loved it in her wise-cracking voice.

Last year, I invested my time in listening to Tina, [[ASIN:0062268341 Amy Poehler]], [[ASIN:B000ZM8GL8 Steve Martin]] and plenty of other comedy luminaries.

Tina was an exceptional start of the year.
Listen carefully (and yes, I totally appreciated hearing to the verse in her voice).
She maintains her comedic chops even between the lines of the book.

To totally engage every word of her exceptional spoken word commentary, I used the wonderful [[B07X8TB8F4 Gabalicious]] as a way to increase my smile as Tina's lovely voice whispered every word.

One thing: Make sure to either wear earphones/headphones. Or set your car stereo to "voice" rather than "Led Zeppelin".
There are extremely funnily timed passages she throws out at the end of lines that, if missed, you miss a LOT of the fun.

Highly recommended for road trips.
Tina Few makes even the mundane entertaining.
Great observational, sometimes cynical. Always self deprecating.

Totally entertaining.
Very authentic.
An excellent peek inside a brilliant comic artist.
