Tell Me Something Tuesday is hosted by Rainy Day Ramblings and discusses a wide range of topics from books to blogging.

QUESTION: What are your Favorite Comedy Books?
When I think about comedy books I always have funny ladies and their books come to mind.
You’ll Grow Out Of It // I didn’t know who Jessi Klien (comedian who worked on Amy Schumer’s show) was but one of my favorite radio talk shows kept raving so I requested it and so glad I did. I really enjoyed it and found it quirky but funny.
Yes Please // I love Amy Poehler and couldn’t wait to read this. I enjoyed it but wish I had gotten the audiobook. I may have to relisten one day.
The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo // I am hot or miss with Amy Schumer but for the most part I liked this one.
Scrappy Little Nobody // So glad I did the audio one this one as I think listening to Anna Kendrick definitely added to the book.
Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? // I actually tried to read this and DNFed but then listened and LOVED it. SO weird how that can happen.
Bossypants // Tina Fey is the best. I read this one during a work conference (my bad) and had to hold back the laughs. I recently listened to it and it still holds up.
Furiously Happy // I just listened to this one mostly for the cover. WHile it has heavy topics it is seriously funny.
My Horizontal Life // I read this in college and it cracked me up.

What are some of your favorite comedy books?

  1. I have the audio of Yes Please but haven’t listened to it yet. I listened to Bossypants and thought it was okay. I read My Horizontal Life and thought that was okay as well. I do want to read Furiously Happy. My problem with some of these celebrity books is that I don’t really watch TV and know nothing about them or what they are talking about.

  2. I agree on Scrappy Little Nobody! It was one of the first audiobooks I listened to and now I’m hooked on autobiographies/memoirs – currently listening to The Girl with the Lower Back Tatoo!

  3. I love funny books but actually have a hard time finding books that I think are funny. Scrappy Little Nobody is the only one of these I’ve heard and I still wish I had listened to that instead of just reading it to myself. I think some of the humor was lost on me that I probably would have picked up on hearing Anna tell her own story.

  4. I love Bossypants – I didn’t care for Yes Please as much as I’d hoped. I own Amy’s, Mindy’s, Anna’s, and Jenny’s – looks like I need to get caught up on my funny ladies! I did read Mindy’s second book though (Why Not Me?) and enjoyed that.

  5. I want to read SO many of these! I have read My Horizontal Life (which I liked, but not quite as much as Are You There Vodka, It’s Me Chelsea?) and Bossypants (which I loved- but I still HATE that cover!), and Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (which… I won’t lie, I didn’t love). But yeah ALL the others on your list are on my TBR- I even have Furiously Happy on my shelf! These are some amazing and funny women you have here 😀
