Quotes & Awards

  • Hilarious, raw. Rolling Stone
     
  • Unlike some books by comics, [Rob] Delaney’s volume offers a rich, deeply considered (and yes, funny) look at his life, from jumping off a bridge to crashing a car while drunk to getting and staying sober while other friends died trying. A great read by any standard, but even more so for including stories about needing (and failing) to find a bathroom while jogging. E! Online, Best Entertainment and Pop Culture Books of 2013
  • One of the most hilarious bundles of words we have ever read. Vice
  • A book as funny, sincere, weird, wet, and wonderful as Rob Delaney himself. Jimmy Kimmel
  • Rob Delaney has done it again! Actually, this is his first book, so he has not ‘done it again.’ Actually, this book is so good, I doubt he will be able to do it again. He’s peaked. Judd Apatow
  • Rob’s transition from tweets to book is like a gold medal sprinter winning the marathon the next day. I am jealous and angry. Seth Meyers
  • WARNING: This book may cause involuntary seepage. Some funny, funny, funny, funny s*** from the most dangerous man on Twitter. The fact that he’s just as funny in long form makes me want to vomit with envy. Anthony Bourdain
  • All it takes to be as funny as Rob Delaney is luck, good timing, deep compassion, reckless imaginative agility, a flawless grasp of the inner workings of language, and criminally vast quantities of mojo. What a jerk. Teju Cole, author of Open City
  • A surprisingly moving story of how humor can alleviate sorrow, if never completely eradicate it. The chapter about visiting the abandoned Danvers State Hospital—infamous for carrying out countless lobotomies in the twentieth century—is worth reading on its own for the empathy it evokes for the casualties of early mental health treatment. Candid and conversational, this memoir shows there’s more to Delaney than pithy tweets. Kirkus Reviews
  • Heart-wrenchingly true tales exuding self-effacing whimsy and smart-guy charm . . . There are plenty of books by male comedians about being drunk and stupid and depressed and getting out of the hole they dug for themselves, but this book feels like you are reading the account told by a grownup who actually learned something about himself worthy enough to share in book form. Splitsider
  • Delaney has a knack for pinpointing what’s hilarious and sad about adolescent bed-wetting and his own abundant body hair, but somehow the darkest chapters [in this book] make you laugh hardest. Entertainment Weekly
  • “Rob Delaney has done it again! Actually, this is his first book, so he has not ‘done it again.’ Actually, this book is so good, I doubt he will be able to do it again. He’s peaked.”

    Judd Apatow
