Happy Endings The Tales of a Meaty-Breasted Zilch (Paperback)
From the Publisher:
Jim Norton is a pervert
in the truest sense of the word. The physical equivalent of a tall slug, he pays top dollar for massages with happy endings and is fascinated by shitty sitcoms and fat girls. He is also, at times, racially offensive and morally repugnant. He spares no one in his comedy -- least of all himself.
Now, in this outrageous, blisteringly funny collection of essays, Norton tackles the topics that are near and dear to his heart: from public events like the legendary Voyeur Bus incident on the Opie and Anthony Show, which culminated in all involved being taken to jail, or seeking a hug from his childhood idol Gene Simmons, to deeply private moments, including a teenage Jim's embarrassing poetry-writing attempts while in rehab, and his inexpensive sexual experience with an unwashed MILF (a Monolith I'd Like to Forget). His stories are raw, searingly honest in their attention to detail, and most of all, hilarious.
Filled with personal photos and nearly fifty candid and uncompromising essays, Happy Endings is one of a kind...and probably best read on an empty stomach.The popular stand-up comedian offers an offbeat, frequently raunchy memoir of his life, in which he shares his affinity for hookers, the time he stalked Black Sabbath and Alan Alda, his experiences with Opie and Anthony, his arrest on the infamous Voyeur Bus, and other controversial events. Reprint.
Cringe comedian Jim Norton writes without shame. He's fat and has fat-girl fantasies. He will do anything for an autograph from a celebrity, and goes on a (verbal) rampage whenever celebrities spurn him, as did Derek Jeter and Gene Simmons. He also loves a good "happy ending" during his massage. Unabashedly perverted, Jim Norton exposes himself, literally and figuratively, in this collection of comedy essays, and once readers get over their disgust they might just die laughing.
