This was legitimately good. Not just “good for a comedian” or “funny enough”, but actually, legitimately good. I started reading his first book My Custom Van a month or two ago, but it was due back at the library and I didn’t care enough about what I was reading to finish it. It was a collection of funny essays that didn’t feel very personal.
This book is a shift from his previous work; it’s a collection of stories from his life. It’s unflinchingly honest, funny, and has some real insight. Would recommend it even for people who can’t stand his comic persona.
