In the early 1970s, as our nation's youth railed against every conceivable societal norm, a funny-looking teenage Jew started turning up at open mike nights in various New York City comedy clubs. Surprisingly, he didn't suck. That funny-looking teenage Jew is now the even funnier-looking middle-aged comedian Gilbert Gottfried, who despite his transparent shortcomings has managed to carve out a hardly-respectable career—and a reputation for shock and awe unrivaled outside the Bush administration. With this scathingly funny audiobook of rants and musings, Gottfried sullies an entirely new medium with his dysfunctional worldview.

"One of the most touching, eye-opening historical accounts—one day I may even read it." —Howie Mandel

"This is definitely the loudest book I have ever read. It changed my life. After reading it I decided to go through transgender surgery." —Bob Saget

"Truly the funniest book ever, by one of the funniest guys on the planet!" —Paul Shaffer, musical director, Late Show with David Letterman

    " I simply expected more laughs from this book. I mean, it's by Gilbert Gottfried!! He's a funny guy. Wait... maybe I'm thinking of someone else. I cracked a few smiles, but only really laughed three times. Yes, I counted. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dave Hutson | 1/6/2014

    " Gottfried keeps a smile on your face as he gives a first hand account into the life of a "Super Mega Star" Celebrity. The jokes before each chapter really put the whole thing into perspective. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kurt | 11/17/2013

    " Gilbert's great live, but flat in print. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John Hardin | 8/20/2013

    " I like Gilbert Gottfried, but this book was really hard to follow. I usually like books written by comedians, because they incorporate their act into it, but in this case, I felt like the book jumped around a lot. Only a hardcore Gilbert fan will like this. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joanne | 7/20/2013

    " Eh. The man is funny but he is better suited for the stage than he is for a book. If you want to learn anything about the man himself, look elsewhere. You aren't going to find it here. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 L&A PR | 7/8/2013

    " I've always wanted to know the man behind the voice.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tracy Goode | 11/15/2012

    " One of the funniest book EVER! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diana | 9/16/2012

    " Gilbert Gottfried is not an acquired taste. You either like him or you don't. The book was mildly entertaining. Despite the fact that he says he dropped out of highschool I think he must be a very bright man. I howled at his joke about Julie Roberts and Lyle Lovett. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Greg Converse | 8/8/2012

    " Seems odd to give five stars to this book? Not at all. I think he's funny, and this is one of the few books that made me laugh out loud. So there. (Insert raspberry here.) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Phil | 7/27/2012

    " Much like his comedy, the book is random and rambling and sometimes you get the idea that he is saying things just to amuse himself. However, there are times during this quick read that his stream of consciousness story-telling is actually quite amusing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scott | 4/13/2012

    " Gilbert is just always funny, always has been. This book is no exception. It's an out-of-order autobiography that embellishes a lot, but it's fun all the way. Gilbert never takes himself or his life too seriously, which shines through the pages. That's a compliment, by the way! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brian | 2/10/2012

    " some good stories, nothing that blew me away. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian | 2/6/2012

    " Amusing book. The author says he aspires to writing the equivalent of a slice of pizza and a grape drink. He has attained that and then some. Maybe two slices and a cola? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marisa Gonzalez | 9/12/2011

    " As stated in the book it is the literary equivalent of a slice of pizza and a grape drink...not a gourmet meal but it's filling. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andrew Stadler | 6/26/2011

    " Not that funny and boring =\ "

About the Author

He was recently named by Stern's listeners as their all-time favorite guest. He lives in New York.
