Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"The packaging of this audio edition of Comedy Central satirist Stephen Colbert's latest title features an icon promoting the recording's '3-D High-Def Surroundiness.' While this claim clearly follows Colbert's pattern of tongue-in-cheek buzzwords and taglines, the production quality does contribute to a satisfying listening experience, as voices and sounds — including a stoner commentator's bubbling bong water — are distinctly rendered in the fashion of live theater. Colbert's narrative — steeped in his characteristic irony — weaves expository chapters on various hot-button issues with monologues from individual citizens. With the possible exception of the aforementioned stoner, the most memorable of these characters is a silver-tongued energy industry spokeswoman who embodies the very essence of spin in the current media culture. Colbert's brand of entertainment occupies a unique niche in the marketplace, and regardless of whether the punch lines click for individual listeners, the comedian's latest offering remains unmistakably faithful to that brand. A Grand Central hardcover. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
