Female Comedian Triple Feature

Tiny Fey: Bossypants.
Amy Poehler: Yes Please
Mindy Kaling: Is Everyone Hanging out Without Me?

These are three audiobooks that I feel I can comment on as one. While they are each entertaining in their own right, have a feeling that, “their people” were pushing them to put out books all in a short period of time because the others were doing it. You get a notion that they all have the same “people” and that each others books were highly influenced and formatted by the other’s books.

Each book is a combination of: Biography, Coming up as  female comedians, and jokes each in their particular shade of humor. 

These books are great as “in-between”  or “change-of-pace audiobooks”. They are kind of like a palate cleanser when you have just finished a 100+ hour serious Fantasy Trilogy marathon, or it’s Friday and you don’t want to start something to forget over the weekend. Each audiobook can each be easily finished in a day.

These audiobooks are all so similar that I could not even rank them favorite to least favorite, so if you are to start one, start with your favorite comedian of the three.

I did enjoy each one for what they are. It’s fun hearing side stories from popular TV Shows and Movies such as: The Office, SNL’s Sarah Palin skits, or how Parks & Rec's Leslie Nope came into being.

I rate these books collectively ☆ 3/5 Stars

Suited for ages: 16 & up.

Genre: Humor, Satire, Essay, Comedy, Biography, Short Stories
