Overview

"This hugely entertaining pack of lies reads like a Woody Allen essay from the New Yorker."
—David Pitt, Booklist

Is Chris Elliott a highly successful and beloved comedian—or a slightly dim-witted notalent from a celebrity family who managed to convince a generation of disillusioned youth that he was funny? From a ghastly childhood on the posh Upper East Side to his first job entertaining mobsters with his Judy Garland impersonation, The Guy Under the Sheets is packed with countless episodes from the life of a mediocre artist who somehow faked his way to the top—of semi-moderate fame and fortune. Woven throughout the ctional fun in Elliott's memoir are wonderful real-life anecdotes that will delight many new readers and loyal fans alike.
 

"The arc of [Elliott's] career remains unique and inspiring . . . that he blazed a trail for Arrested Development and Community and all the other freaky, convention-outing TV comedies."
Grantland

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“This hugely entertaining pack of lies reads like a Woody Allen essay from the New Yorker, but, buried among the silliness, there is a nugget or two of legitimate autobiography. Wildly weird and hugely entertaining.” — David Pitt, Booklist

“The arc of [Elliott’s] career remains unique and inspiring. That he made things worth memorizing and fashioning one's young identity around. That there is integrity to the path of most resistance, that he blazed a trail for Arrested Development and Community and all the other freaky, convention-flouting TV comedies.”—Grantland

“Everything that makes Elliott great, and everything that makes him so baffling to the Gods of Comedy, is on full display in The Guy Under the Sheets...a memoir that is wonderfully untrustworthy, and wildly entertaining....hilarious.”
—Christopher Schobert, Buffalo News

Library Journal
Um, hot affairs with Lee Radziwill and Kathie Lee Gifford? Time spent dismembering bodies for the Mob? I think it's safe to say that this book is not meant as a wholly accurate reminiscence. Expect entertainment from out-there comic Elliott, currently starring in Adult Swim's Eagleheart.
