Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A compendium of advice from the producers, writers, and actors of The Office, Saturday Night Live, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Knocked Up, Flight of the Conchords, The Daily Show, Arrested Development, Reno 911! and The Hangover, along with other people who should really never give advice. In these pages Fred Armisen offers help telling your dad you're a lesbian—give him the phone number and he'll do it for you. Mindy Kaling provides guidance on ending things with your mistress—dude, you totally have to kill her. Rainn Wilson offers insight on contacting that girl you dreamed about last night—he has created all-purpose web portal for such interactions. Amy Sedaris identifies the best way to a man’s heart—bone saw through the chest cavity.

Review:

Comedians have a reputation for being dark, bitter and angry. And that's exactly why their advice is so entertaining to read. Good advice? No. Fun reading material? Yes. Dark, offensive and insulting. And really, really funny. By the end of David Cross&'s introduction, you'll be ROFL. And yes, that inane Internet lingo is righteously ridiculed in here.

About the Author

The Believer is a monthly magazine devoted to providing an amiable yet rigorous forum for books and book criticism. The magazine extends the ever-shortening shelf life of new books, revives interest in books long overlooked, and stresses the interconnectivity of books to pop culture, politics, art, and music. The magazine includes essays on these topics, as well as lengthy interviews with philosophers, politicians, poets, and ninjas. We offer our readers an eclectic range of articles and interview subjects to underscore our belief that books are an interactive and vital medium.

About the Editor: Eric Spitznagel is a contributing editor for The Believer magazine, where he co-created (along with Amy Sedaris) the Sedaratives column. He's also the author of six books and a frequent contributor to Playboy and Vanity Fair. He has one more testicle than Hitler, which he considers a moral victory.
