Synopses & Reviews
He's the MTV generation's master of modern humor, a star of film, TV, and the comedy stage. This sultan of savvy serves up a whip-smart, utterly original collection of comic essays in Naked Pictures of Famous People.
And as of January 11, 1999, you can enjoy the intelligence and self-deprecating charm he brings to contemporary comedy on "The Daily Show."
In his first book, he translates that unique talent to the page, with humorous forays into a vast array of subjects: fashion, urban life, fast cars, cocktail culture, modern Jewishness, politics, and dating.
A seethingly irreverent wit, Stewart has a genius for language and brilliant timing that makes his up-to-the-minute collection a must-have for humor lovers in search of a Woody Allen for the 90s.
A critically acclaimed national Bestseller, Naked Pictures of Famous People arrives in trade paperback with a new essay, written especially for this edition.
