This humorous autobiography traces Gilbert Gottfried's life, mostly focusing on his professional rise from a struggling stand-up comic, to an MTV personality, to a well-known if controversial television star. He interrupts the narrative at regular intervals to introduce "clip and save" jokes--not originals but old chestnuts, or variations of same. Be forewarned that the jokes, just like every other part of this book, are crude and not for the easily offended. No is spared from his acerbic wit, most especially himself.
The bawdy, clarion-voiced comedian traces his rise from an awkward Jewish youth in New York City to a famous stand-up performance artist, sharing everything from the stories behind his signature routines to his haphazard encounters with fellow celebrities.
