Review

Praise for It Gets Worse:

"Dawson exhibits his signature brand of twisted humor and neuroses in his second volume of personal essays. [His] journey is fraught with sadness…and comedy…His self-deprecating and outrageous humor…deserves comparison to David Sedaris." ―
Publishers Weekly

“These 13 essays collected here are…humorous, but some are quite moving…One a humor scale of 1 to 10, 1 being
meh and 10 being a hoot, Dawson’s essays earn a solid 7. Teen fans of David Sedaris will enjoy Dawson’s perky essays."Booklist

"Shane Dawson brings us possibly – no, definitely – the most hilarious read of summer. In this uproarious essay collection, Dawson unleashes all his wit and explores his mortifying childhood and every awkward moment as he came to terms with bisexuality. Overflowing with humor and sharp observations on the struggles surrounding modern culture, It Gets Worse is comfort food for the millennial soul."
  ―
Sunset Magazine

“If you're a fan of his, it's safe to say this is already pre-ordered for you, but if you haven't been introduced to this YouTube sensation, I'd recommend checking him out if you're a millennial who loves to laugh.”  ―
Bustle

"Like Dawson’s previous book, I Hate Myselfie, It Gets Worse is a collection of humorous autobiographical essays...laced with both bracing honesty and Dawson’s signature humor."
  ―
Entertainment Weekly (ew.com)

Praise for I Hate Myselfie:
“Though Shane is infamous for his biting wit and crude humor,
I Hate Myselfie is as much heart as it is crass.... [It] proves that laughing at yourself can help overcome even the most embarrassing experiences.... Shane may 'hate his selfie,' but his millions of fans will love it.” ― AccessHollywood.com

"This book is a haven for difference in a sea of more of the same with YouTuber books. The essay approach really worked for the book." ―
The Guardian

Shane Lee Dawson (born Yaw; born July 19, 1988) is an American YouTube personality, actor, sketch comedian, singer, songwriter and film director. Dawson is known for making comedy videos featuring many recurring characters (such as Shananay, Ned the Nerd, S. Deezy, Mom, Aunt Hilda, Fruitlupe and recently Amy), celebrity impersonations (such as Paris Hilton, Miley Cyrus and Sarah Palin), and spoofs of popular music videos and television shows. Most of his major productions were done with the help of producer Lauren Schnipper.

As of December 2015, his YouTube channel, ShaneDawsonTV, is the 129th most subscribed channel, having more than 7 million subscribers and more than 1.1 billion views. In March 2012, Dawson began pursuing a music career, releasing six singles. He has also released numerous music video parodies.

His podcast, Shane and Friends, starring him and his friend Jessie Buttafuoco (originally with his producer, Lauren Schnipper), was created in 2013 and is still ongoing. As of July 10, 2015, 45 episodes have been released, with multiple YouTubers and celebrity guests.

In 2014, Dawson released his first film, Not Cool, directed by and starring himself. In early 2015, Dawson released a memoir titled I Hate Myselfie: A Collection of Essays.
