Reviews

"I always wanted to punch his face before I read this book. Now I just want to kick him in the balls."--Larry David

"Colin Jost is as funny as his face is punchable. Which is to say: very. He also knows a lot about Staten Island, soiling himself, internal parasites, and firemen's pensions. He's really the whole package. And if you care about comedy--writing it, performing it, watching it, or giving up any semblance of a normal adult life for it--so is his book."--Zadie Smith

"Colin Jost is one of the best people I know and one hell of a writer. This book proves both to be true."--Seth Meyers

"I was caught off guard by how much I enjoyed this book, considering how indifferent I feel about Colin as a person."--Amy Schumer

"An inspiring story that reminds us that if you are born with looks and talent, you can still make it."--Conan O'Brien

"I think this book is fantastic. I haven't read a single word of it, but it's got everything I want in a book--a front, a back, a good spine. And it's got some heft. Whoever wrote this book knew what she was doing. Well done."--Michael Che
