    lost for words

    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.

    NOT FUNNY

    Found it boring and just NOT funny. It falls under "I guess you had to be there (to find it funny)." It also reads like she had 2 days to meet the book's deadline and threw out random thoughts. Don't waste your time. I'm sorry I wasted mine.

    I Also Recommend:

    Clever and Insightful

    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.

    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.

    Often hilarious, often touching

    I read this book on the merit of a few good reviews I had read. I'll be honest and say that while I've found myself laughing at Sarah Silverman's comedy and TV show before, I'm not entirely won over by it, but I've always been under the impression that the person behind it is intelligent and likable. This book truly supports that. It's just a good read by a woman that I feel I can relate to. Despite the farts and pee jokes, there's a lot of introspection about her relationships with her friends, family and colleagues that is really just a joy to read.

    This is not to say I don't find farts and pee jokes humorous, but reading how they're anchored in her psyche makes her comedy all the more enjoyable. She comes across as a sensitive person who cares about the feelings of others (an issue addressed in the book are the debacles concerning Paris Hilton, Britney Spears and Guy Aoki, the president of MANAA). I think it's true that it's overly-didactic for a comedian to explain their jokes, but I think reading these passages was important. They made interesting stories and reading about her reactions to the bad press really made me feel for her.

    I'm really enjoying this book and I hope that even if you don't totally love her comedy, you'll at least give it a try.

    Sad that trees had to die for this drivel to be printed

    This book affirmed my suspicion that Sarah Silverman is Sarah Silverman's biggest fan. I was hoping there might be something in it that would convince me that her talent is writing (she did start out as a comedy writer, and it's painfully obvious that her "acting" is simply her repetitively bringing her obnoxious traits to every role), but it didn't pan out. I'm very glad that I borrowed this book, rather than purchasing it.

    Funny stuff

    I love Sarah Silverman's bold comedic style. She's original, and daringly hilarious. This book was such a fun, and rather insightful read.

    Impressive

    Never had anything against Sarah, but never followed her religiously either. Bedwetter was endlessly entertaining but wasnt forced at all. It was silly but not to the extent that you lose interest with what she's saying. I've also learmed that she and i are the same person... not like siamese twins or anything though so dont get excited. I dont know it's late, i lovvvved this book, i now have a hetero crush on sarah, and im going to bed.

    Do you like funny things?

    Enjoyed the stream-of-consciousness writing sans chapters! Well done, Sarah! I hope this isn't her last attempt at the comedy memoir writing genre, as she has a heart-warming and simultaneously hilarious childhood to draw from. Not for people who dislike funny stuff or topical humor about pee, poo(p), and the author's vagina.

    You'll be laughing the entire ride!

    Truly a work of comic brilliance, this book will have you in stitches. This 200+ page story of Silverman's pee filled life, and sheets, will having you laughing louder than you thought possible so be careful where you read it. If you're looking for laughs, tears, and the occasional bowel movement, this book will be a perfect buy.

    Boring

    Just trying to read the "forward" bored me to desth, and bathroom jokes, really? Guess this is for her super fans only, im not impressed. I was hoping to read something light & funny, not a self-praise book. If you enjoy reading how great she thinks she is, go ahead. I'll pass.

    Funny!

    I wanted a light read for my vacation and this book was perfect. Sarah Silverman is no holds barred hilarious and I love that she's not afraid to push the envelope. Some parts were laugh out loud funny, particularly when she's talking about her awkward childhood embarrassments, which most of us can totally relate to. What I really love is that she's okay being the butt of the joke, and at the same time is non-apologetic about telling it like it is. I thoroughly enjoyed this read, and would definitely read another book by her if she were so inclined to write one.
