3.5Hoped for belly laughs, but I enjoyed it and love DS all the same the worst part about this truly terrible book is that the author thinks he s a nice guy and keeps saying that i wonder what it s like to completely lack self awareness. Well what to say about this one This book was straight to audiobook, which I think was a fantastic idea All the jokes are current and relevant which helps Also hearing everything the way that David Spade intended it to be said was a big help too, as any fan of his knows, David has a particular way of saying his jokes that really add to the comedy of them This book was just over 6 hours long, and I listened to it at 1.20x speed, which was perfect The chapters are short and quippy, making it very easy for me to fly though this book in a day while I was cleaning my house.So the rating This book had me laughing so hard that I physically couldn t breathe at times, and as my partner was working in another room whilst I was listening to the audiobook on a speaker he too was laughing very hard at certain points in the book mind you this is a man that doesn t even know who David Spade is Were there some less funny parts Yes But you can t have a laugh a minute for 6 hours straight, in our nature It just won t happen But when I wasn t laughing incredibly hard the book was like listening to a interesting man talk, still very captivating.I highly recommend this book to any David Spade fan and maybe even if you re not one There are two Davids I love David Sedaris and David Spade. Honest, somewhat off color, hilarious. This was my first David Spade book and I loved it It was full of hilarious goodness David did a fantastic job narrating so that made the experience that much enjoyable I m a recent Audible listener so this is a whole new experience for me So far I am really enjoying it when I can t actually sit down and read a book myself. It turned out that I like David Spade in small portions Like in 10 minute talkshow clips In a book he was rather annoying Not even sure if it was his voice or the stories I didn t particularly enjoy On the brighter side it s a short book And I really liked how he covered some themes.Like race He mostly joked about how he as a rich white guy has no right to do race jokes He also said that they won t do ad of burglar systems with two black guys or two Mexicans playing burglars it always has to be white guys nowadays or some ethnic groups will be mad It always has to be mixed bag to represent todays America Friends today would be One white guyOne Asian girl One LatinoOne Pakistani transgenderAnd one so fucking blended you wouldn t know what was going on so you wouldn t even bother to complain You would be like aaand this person represents all the other races in the world jammed in the one character Enjoy Or internet celebrities Not everyone used to be famous There used to be two ways person could become famous One you re a movie star, rockstar, president or an athlete Or you had to assassinate one of the above.
