“One of my favorite comedians and my pal Todd Barry is going to bring this nation back together with this engaging, uniquely hilarious tour memoir. It’s a love letter to what the real American dream is all about, filled with gloriously specific details and snort-laughing-when-reading-jokes. I truly loved this book. You’ll be sad when it’s over. Also, It kills Todd that I said ONE of my favorite comedians.” (Jen Kirkman, author of I Can Barely Take Care Of Myself)
"Todd Barry is LITERALLY my favorite comedian of all time, in the sense that he’s among the handful of comedians working today I look forward to seeing live.

"In recounting the hows-and-whys of deliberately steering a tour into the not-particularly-fast lane, Todd Barry animates the mundane with the same skill that makes his stand-up sets so uniquely funny.

I stood next to him once, in the back of the crowd, before he performed at Red Star in Greenpoint as the star special guest of the, now defunct, monthly Pirate Party comedy night. He seemed at ease and laughed along with jokes of the other comedians. Didn't even realize I was next to him until he was announced and walked up to the mic to deliver a hilarious set. I now know it was all for show and he was scanning the venue, sizing us up, listening for jokes to avoid. What was going through his head? Nice, low ceilings if I remember right. Hipster crowd, obviously in Greenpoint, so he could use his big words. I don't think there was a green room, so major points off, and I don't remember the bathroom as all that great and I think it was downstairs, too. It's amazing he was able to deliver as great of a performance as he did!
If there's any chance this FAMOUS AS HELL guy gets down and reads his book reviews: Todd, check out "credit card churning". Will really help your travel game.
This book made me laugh and smile. There's something charming about reading about someone whose favorite activity is to find a local coffee shop to sit and relax in. Pick this book up if you are fan of stand up comedy at all. Comedian memoirs are always the best reads, and Todd's book is no exception.
I seriously hope Todd writes another book!
