I love her show, Parks & Recreation. I love Broad City, a new-ish sitcom she executive produces. And I love this book.
I was surprised how off I’d been on her personality. I guess I expected her to be a peppy do-gooder like Leslie Knope from Parks & Rec. Yeah, I got that wrong.
She’s a badass. I adore her even more than I did before reading her memoir.
I like that she talked about not liking the process of writing the book and finding it challenging. I like that she talked about the drugs she has tried and the ones she has avoided. I like that she swears, and does it well.
I like that she talked about the craziness of Saturday Night Live but spoke more tenderly and thoughtfully about the Upright Citizens Brigade, one of the several places where she got her start. The last chapter of the audiobook was read live in front of a UCB audience.
I like that she talked about her sons, her divorce from Will Arnett, being a parent and a busy showbiz mom. There were sweet moments, but mostly it was hilarious.
(I realize a lot of comedian memoirs claim to be “hilarious.” That’s not usually the case. But this time, I mean it.)
I really, really, really enjoyed this book. It’s my favorite book of 2014.
One of the best "celebrity" bios I've ever read.

I like her work as an actor. Her writing? Not so much. It comes off as very narcissistic.Published 6 months ago by Amazon Customer
