Synopses & Reviews
The riotously funny debut from the drinking star with a YouTube problem
Since launching her YouTube channel and#147;You Deserve a Drinkand#8221; in 2011, comedian Mamrie Hart has built an intensely devoted following of more than half a million viewers. Like her bawdy and bacchanalian show, Hartand#8217;s eponymous debut pays tribute to her boozy misadventures with an original cocktail recipe accompanying each hilarious tale. From the and#147;Leaves of Three Martini,and#8221; commemorating the hookup to whom she accidentally gave poison ivy, to the and#147;Bizzargarita,and#8221; in honor of the time she and a friend were approached by two uber-Republican couples who wanted to and#147;swingand#8221; while on vacation in Mexico, You Deserve a Drink is as useful as it is entertaining.
"In this rapid-fire tell-all memoir, Colonna spins personal misfortune into comedic gold. Recalling a bad trip on mushrooms at Burning Man, the author reminisces about camping trips with her family in Arkansas (where she grew up), noting quaintly that her mother 'fed biscuits and gravy rather than hallucinogens.' While some readers may tire of the drinking, drugs, and myriad men, Colonna's fans will appreciate her endearing self-deprecation and sarcastic humor. Between the one night stands, politically incorrect humor, and countless episodes of heartbreak, Colonna finds time to reflect on more serious concerns, like aging, blazing a career path, overcoming nerves (Colonna is a stand-up comic), and pushing the boundaries of one's comfort zone. The eye-opening narrative relates candid details of the author's life in mature language, but the conversational style and humorous slant will keep readers laughing from start to finish. (Feb.)"
