The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption, and Pee The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption, and Pee by Sarah Silverman

My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I "read" this book on audio, with the author as the reader. Having her voice read it helps (could anyone else really do it?). Silverman's humor is often focused on the scatological so she's not for everyone. This memoir is very much Sarah Silverman with all the good and bad that comes with that. Unlike many comedians' books, this is not simply a rehash of her stand-up act, but a genuine memoir and a surprisingly brave one. She is fearless in discussing many of her problems (the title hints at this, but she's also battled depression, career stagnation, and negative reviews). She doesn't flinch in discussing her awkward, embarrassing moments on-stage and off.

In short, if you like her comedy, you'll probably like the book. It won't win her new fans, but it does provide some interesting insight on the comedy industry.
