I am sorry for giving my own book a 4 star review. Please do not trust me. Read it for yourself and form your own opinion. It could be worse; I could have given myself a 5 star review. Imagine that! I bet you can too, since you're a member of GoodReads and have nourished your imagination enough t...

Books from comedians are always strange to me. There's never enough cohesion in them. This has been billed as a memoir but it's an essay collection. This is a charming book, though. At times, the writing is just so generous and beautiful, particularly as many of the essays come to a close. I wish...

Like most memoirs by mid-career comics, Rob “Funniest person on Twitter” Delaney’s first book is uneven. It's funny and smart, but it's also – like that stupid title (really, publishers? you let him get away with that?) – occasionally lazy, self-indulgent and disorganized.
In his most memorable es...

I have decided to stop being a closed-down old fuckhead who shuns any cultural artifact
after 1962 and bores people to death by saying how much I "prefer" actual BOOKS and
old-fashioned human connection and the strange luxury of not having access to information
every waking second. So I hear about t...

strictly speaking, i'd say this is a four-star book-- which is still high praise, and this book is truly a pleasure-- but i'm giving it five stars anyway, because this book is of a piece with the whole public persona that is rob delaney, and that guy is, in my opinion, a five-star dude. what do i...

Whenever I hear someone sneering at Twitter by saying that nothing worthwhile can fit in a 140-character message, I know that person has never spent any time on Twitter. The pseudo-profound criticism is wrong on two levels: first of all, it turns out you can say a lot of worthwhile things in 140...

The book is sort of a rambling series of funny events or thoughts strung together very loosely in a narrative. That isn’t a knock on his writing in any way. Think of it as the literary equivalent of a stand up set, and that is essentially what this book is. Delaney is a funny guy and it shows.

My friend's toddler slammed Delaney's toddler inside a locker at the children's discovery center in Stratford (east london) so my friend finally had an excuse to make her way through the simpering moms positioned around him in order to apologize! Apparently he's very handsome in real life - hence...

Little bit disappointed in this one, I have to admit. I follow Delaney on Twitter, and I adore his show "Catastrophe" on Amazon TV. Both are hilarious in a very quirky and thoughtful way.
This book didn't so much do it for me, though. I should caveat that by saying that although the humor was not...
