As a fan of Sarah Silverman's comedy, I was looking forward to reading her memoir, "The Bedwetter : Stories of Courage, Redemption, and Pee". The book did not disappoint. It is one of the rare memoirs that manage to be both concise and insightful. Silverman bravely devotes much of the book to her childhood battles with depression and enuresis. She also discusses her days as a struggling comic and her views on topics like fashion and religion. Her account of writing for Saturday Night Live in the'90's is especially interesting. Regardless of the subject matter, each chapter is peppered with the clever humor Silverman fans have come to expect. The only complaint I have is that Silverman completely ignores the existence of one of her sisters when talking about her childhood, only to introduce her later in the photographic section of the book and never mention her again. Other than that, I highly recommend "The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption, and Pee" to anyone who is not easily offended.

I think it is a book for Silverman fans only. I am not familiar with the author and her comedy, I thought she was writing about the humiliation a bedwetter lives with.

For me, it was an eyeopener when it comes to comedy these days and why most television shows are nothing but trash. Comedy writers, today, are so immature that potty talk and vulgar situations put them in stitches.

I was sorry I wasted money on this book. I find miss Silverman to be the ultimate in vulgarity and not one bit funny. I do see from reviews that she does have fans who appreciate that kind of humor.

I usually donate my books and audio books to the library but this one will go right where it belongs, in the trash.

    Boring

    I thought this book was boring and not funny. Took a long time to finish. It didn't make me want to finish it.
