E later revealing I have no religion I grew up in a non observant household and later stating I talk about being Jewish in my act than I m really "ENTITLED TO CONSIDERING THAT I "to considering that I m agnostic best who has no background of participation in Jewish traditions other than nausea Maybe her heritage is so ingrained she feels the need to constantly refer to it but it feels odd almost akin to declaring you re a vegetarian because you come from a long line of vegetarians ven though you and your family have always aten meat Maybe I m just confused and I don t get it Just like with all of Silverman s comedy I have #mixed feelings about her autobiography Her recollections of her childhood including #feelings about her autobiography Her recollections of her childhood including chronic bedwetting and the havoc it wreaked on her young social life were very ndearing She is brutally honest sharing some family tragedies as well as her struggles with depression and anxiety However once shifting into adulthood and her blossoming comedy career Silverman s tone and persona seemingly shift Gone is the sympathy arning young girl replaced by the foul mouthed comic who manages to offend certain minority groups and posts pictures of her male friend s members right smack dab in the middle of her book As a comedian she is naturally a strong self ffacing and clear writer but again she relies freuently on shock value to keep the reader hooked this is definitely one of the best contemporary comedian autobiographies out there Silverman is an xcellent writer and it s no surprise she has a sharp ye for crafting sentences and to maximum lols A must read for anybody who is interested in comedy or of course are fans of Silverman s I should first say that I m actually not a big Sarah Silverman fan in general I ve never seen her show or movie and have only seen random clips of her stand up So I was not predisposed to like this book That being said I found it to be a substantial and heartfelt read than the memoir type books that have come out by other comediennes in the last couple yearsWhat I liked most about this book was her personal background stories her childhood struggle with depression family relationships attempts to find meaning at school and transition into comedy full time were very well written and her analysis of her approach to comedy found mainly in her response to a couple different jokes being over reacted to I found that I appreciated her approach to irony after reading this than I did before I also just thought that her writing was very clear and ngagingI didn t as much appreciate some of her rambling attempts at humor I thought that the forward b I have been a fan of Sarah Silverman s for years Her stand up movie Jesus is Magic was hilarious She does better at stand up comedy than she did at her Comedy Central show The Sarah Silverman Program which was just juvenile humor This book does have some redeeming ualiti. Ookthat is at once shockingly personal surprisingly poignant and still pee in your pants funny If you like Sarahs television show The Sarah Sil.
review The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption, and PeeThis is a very funny read from a comedienne telling of her past using humour of course to highlight major and minor vents in her life I have njoyed her televised performances and her some would say outrageous comments during #Her Acts This Book Will Not Disappoint #acts This book will not disappoint followers out there I recently read Miranda Hart s autobiography and found it very disappointing Having njoyed her standup before I thought I would love her book but instead I found it very try hard and not very funny On the other hand I never really watched much of Sarah Silverman s stuff always thinking she was a bit crude but after
a few interviews with for Wreck it Ralph I thought I would give this book a tryI absolutely loved it couldn t put it down and wish there was It is hilarious It follows the same pattern as Miranda Hart s book in that at times she "TALKS DIR I LIKE SARAH SILVERMAN SHE IS FUNNY "dir I like Sarah Silverman She is funny clearly intelligent Unfortunately there is a lot of filler in this book lots of mails that were sent to her scans of adverts and promotions a little bit lazy writing like she had ran out of ideas and was padding it out When she is writing narrative it is funny though I only read on Kindle but this is a book that must be read in paperback as there is loads of stuff in it that can t be read on a Kindle I have got to a point in the book where I have stopped reading it I will try again and see if it picks up The point that I have reached is after Sarah is successful and in which she is doing battles with corporate America in order to get air time for her particular brand of humourThere were parts of the book which were genuinely interesting These are the parts where she reveals what makes her tick Why she is the way she isI don t doubt her courageI just got a bit fed up at a certain point It might improve It won t appeal to veryoneWomen masturbate when they should be doing their homework Okay so the first half of the book is xcellent but the second half was not Silverman is admirably candid with her thoughts and xperiences and it s interesting to read about the hurdles she faced in A Certain Justice (Adam Dalgliesh, early life The further through the book I got the I realised her humour is not for me In her own words At some point I figured that it would beffective and far funnier to The Shadow Reader embrace the ugliest most terrifying things in the world the Holocaust racism rapet cetera That said the book is Cinderella Unmasked (Fairytale Fantasies eleven years old so she may havevolved beyond racial and religious slurs un pc terms tc though I don t think it would have been funny back then ither She mentions having to write apology letters to multiple people who were publicly offended by her jokes but ultimately blames them for not getting her humour and MTV tc for setting her up Surely as the writer and performer the onus is on solely on her She also couldn t get through a chapter without referring to how Jewish she is despit. From the outrageously filthy and oddly innocent comedienne and star of the powerful film I Smile Back Sarah Silverman comes a memoirher first Es about it such as Silverman s recounting of her arly years as a bed wetter going to sleep away camp pages from her actual diary her arly years as a bed wetter going to sleep away camp pages from her actual diary she kept during her childhood in which she describes the previous night s sleep as being wet or dry the first time she realized that what she finds funny can hurt other s feelings as well as many other tidbits about her childhood young adult life and her relationship with her family members Included are several family photos as well as a photo of her with former President Bill Clinton as well as a picture of some guy s penis which I found to be totally unnecessary This "Is A Very And I "a very and I very uick read I read it literally in one long sitting There were a few parts that I found myself laughing out loud toIf you re a Silverman fanatic then for sure buy this book If you re just a casual fan borrow it from the libraryThree out of five stars for an ntertaining uick read that I feel could have been better I like Sarah Silverman and I liked her book At 70 having been raised in a very strict nvironment and having led a very uiet life it seems strange for me to like the book but I did like it a lot For one thing I was very touched by #the suffering of a bedwetter It must have been horrific to have grown up with this mbarrassing #suffering of a bedwetter It must have been horrific to have grown up with this The Case for Paleolibertarianism and Realignment on the Right embarrassing I have always been intrigued by thexperiences of people of a different Oh My God, What a Complete Aisling ethnicity than my own I am a Latina a product of Catholicducation I was interested in Sarah Silverman s Monsieur Pain experience growing up as a Jewish girl in a mostly WASPnvironment I greatly admire her attitude toward her family and I though that her father was wise in supporting her ducation as a comedian Ms Silverman is a terrific comedian I don t ven mind her use of foul language when she uses it it does not seem offensive to me Her terrific sense of humor makes the reading very ntertaining I also appreciate her understanding that for all the tribulations she may have lived she is still better off than most people around the world And I agree with her Catholics should sell the Vatican and feed the poor I highly recommend The Bedwetter You seldom find in one place a selfless look in the mirror of ones life and the places she peed than in this book My steem for the comedian and actress Sarah Silverman has multiplied like the fishes and loaves I understand they did that in the Bible at some point couldn t read found it dry With wit aplomb and most likely a little weed Silverman delivered a beautiful analysis of her life so far and I couldn t be happily surprised Not a Hollywood or ast coast lite the book painted her as a woman and Jew who I truly feel I know From the outside she seemed to have Dare to Lead: Brave Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts. everything but still had many of the hang ups all women have Thanks Sarah for your bold statements of self truth which made me feel just a touch normal Oh and thanks for the pee Ps pee pee is juvenile I concu.
