Lauren Weedman’s hilarious essays are like a compendium of what not to do as a fully-realized, functional adult. Her self-deprecating, confessional, and terribly funny voice finds a special place in the hearts of those who can relate to her—which, for better or worse, includes all of us.

From the uproarious account of her time at The Daily Show, where she developed an entirely one-sided infatuation with Jon Stewart, to the time she read her boyfriend’s diary with disastrous results, Lauren’s work is filled with the wit, honesty, and personality that make for great personal writing.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 sam joy | 2/16/2014

    " Yeah, trying too hard to be funny isn't funny, it's lame. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/5/2014

    " Better than the last book I read. I didn't love the author- her writing was good and funny, but she seemed annoying, needy and sort of pathetic. If I was any of the men in her life I would have been out the door. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Camille | 2/3/2014

    " I ran into this book at an old bookstore in Las Cruses NM. It quickly sparked my interest and I finished it in 3 days. I had never heard of Lauren Weedman before but now Im interested in reading more of her books. She is very funny and keeps you very entertained with all her crazy stories and experiences. I love dry humor and suttle humor and she gives you a lot of both. I only hope she continues to write and publish more books. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to try a book with a variety of witty stories to keep you reading more and wanting a second dose of Lauren Weedman! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Darlene | 2/2/2014

    " Ugh. I couldn't get past the first 20 pages of the book. So annoying. Everyone knows someone who always has to be the center of attention and does/says things which make everyone else cringe. That's how I felt about this author and book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Berit | 1/20/2014

    " Needs more humor and less self-deprecation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ciara | 1/17/2014

    " I picked up this book solely because of the rave reviews from Dan Savage and Jill Soloway on the cover; I later discovered that Lauren Weedman is that annoying, not-so-funny comic on Best Week Ever. Her writing is so, so much better than her stand-up. A great, quick, not too intense read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura Seagraves | 1/17/2014

    " I worked with Lauren in 2000 on her play Amsterdam, so it was interesting to read this book. Lauren is always funny, and this book is no exception, but it is sad realizing how much she hides behind her humor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gegi | 1/16/2014

    " Funny. She is quite a corky person. I laughed out loud at her and also feeling almost uncomfortable for her. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Molly | 12/27/2013

    " It was not as funny as I wanted it to be but still entertaining "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth Snyder | 10/26/2013

    " Funny but not super memorable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Badinia | 10/7/2013

    " As much as I dislike the phrase "laugh-out-loud funny", this book is. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie | 7/16/2013

    " I laughed out loud a lot although I've seen her read from this book and it's even funnier to hear her say the words. I also think she reminds me of people I have met who I can't be around for very long - exhausting. Safe in book form though. Highly enjoyable even. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katherine | 7/13/2013

    " She's supposed to be funny, but I found most of her stories kind of excruciating and/or TMI. She seems ready to laugh at her problems, but her problems are a bit sad! Still, the subtitle is something like "Life on the Cringe," so she knows what she's doing. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Miriam | 2/19/2013

    " I found the author annoying and whiny. She needs to see a shrink and stop trying to use humor to make everything alright. Please save yourself and never read this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shilo | 2/7/2013

    " I expected this to be much funnier. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sheri | 12/5/2012

    " Cringe worthy, but not all that funny. I wanted to like it, as I enjoyed Lauren on Rewind. Oh well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kurt | 7/8/2012

    " Move over Sarah Silverman, Margaret Cho, Amy Sedaris, Tina Fey, et al--this woman is funnier, and has more heart too. This is classic "comedy of embarrassment," but it's so much more than that. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 anne | 6/7/2012

    " Shrill and irritating fluff, no wonder she got fired from the Daily Show. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 3/24/2012

    " hysterical! the fastest read ever accounting lauren weedmen getting fired from working at the daily show to her divorce and upbringing as an adopted child. super funny. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Susan | 11/10/2011

    " Whatever makes this woman funny does not translate to print. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vanessa | 10/26/2011

    " One passage made me laugh so hard I had people staring at me at the coffee house! Do read if you need a good laugh and want to be thoroughly entertained. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heather | 6/11/2011

    " Sure, she's funny, but the book is pretty much the equivalent of a magazine article. And just when you think it's just a book about nothing (I.e. Seinfeld), the last chapter is a whole lotta something and it just leaves you hanging ... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Will | 1/1/2011

    " I love funny, smart chicks! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah Turosak | 4/8/2010

    " Sat next to a woman on a plane. She laughed the entire trip. Since I had just helped my sister get situated with hospice, I guess I looked a tad bit down. So as she was deplaning, she handed it to me and said I looked like I could use it. It was the best gift I have ever received. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Vanessa | 3/25/2010

    " I was hoping for a fun and hilarious read, but I really couldn't get into this book. It just wasn't my kind of humor, and I gave up not long after the first chapter. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 12/24/2008

    " Why is it that female comedians are so messed up? "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Christine | 11/12/2008

    " Couldn't make it past page 13. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megankellie | 11/2/2008

    " A good memoir-ie thing from someone I'd prefer not to identify with so much. Very quick read. "
