Quotes & Awards

  • “Eschews the watered-down collection of humor pabulum usually found in books like this. He actually divulges behind-the-scenes information, from ABC censors’ notes on Drew scripts (‘Lewis’ reference to “penis enlarging” will not be acceptable.’) to the always juicy, deep dark secret.” 

    Entertainment Weekly

  • “Endearingly human, provocative, profane, and hilarious…assemble[s] a complete, revealing picture of Carey, the flawed everyman. Instead of putting together a piece of whitewashed fluff, Carey admirably wrote a book that’s messy, occasionally controversial, and a lot of fun to read.” 

    AV Club

  • “He comes across as a drinking buddy on a particularly funny night. That’s what Carey set out to do—and there’s room on many bookshelves for that.”

    " I read this book..I'd say 10 years ago when I was 12 or 13. Obviously did not understand much of it, but thought it was hilarious. Definitely might have had a role in my sense of humor development. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian Olson | 2/9/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aaron Guilmette | 2/5/2014

    " It's got some entertaining "before I was famous" types of stories. If you can find it at a library or a used book store for a buck or two, it's a fun afternoon. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike Rogers | 11/6/2013

    " A mixture of jokes and heartwarming life stories, Carey took me on a "can't put down" adventure of fun and debauchery. What I learned? Work hard, see the lighter side of everything and don't be afraid to take risks. "

    " I was surprised at how candid he was and appreciated that he was so bold. I read this on a long plane ride and didn't expect much. I was nicely surprised at how thoughtful he was in telling his story.

    As a plus, I often laughed out loud while reading it. "
