Like most people in the world, Kip has had a rough growing up. His mother left him. His dad was an abuser. Then, there was his saving grace, his grandmother. Did I mention his grandmother was in the mob! Well, she was! And so was his uncle Victor. All of this made for a unique childhood. Stand up comedy is a lot harder than it looks. Kip had to work extremely hard to “make it”. From writing your own material to timing the jokes just right, takes lots of talent and practice. This took a major toll on his family. Kip is very honest about this and his other mistakes. Very refreshing, no sugar-coating in this book! I enjoy biographies and this one is super. Is it the best one written? NO. It is choppy in places and the ending is rushed. But I loved it. With the mob, Elvis, Tina Turner (just to name a few) how could you not love it!

3.5 stars Confessions of a Comedian is Kip Addotta’s autobiography; from his humble beginnings in Illinois to his successful status as a t.v. celebrity. Although Kip’s childhood made for a captivating read, it’s sad. It’s a miracle that he didn’t end up as a gangster. His grandmother, although, she had strong connections to the mob, made sure that Kip was brought up right. It’s always fascinating to find out what makes people tick. Kip Addotta bravely lays bare for all to see his life story; his successes as well as his failures. Confessions of a Comedian is a story worth reading. Thank you, Kip Addotta and Beacon Publishing Group, for my complimentary copy of this book.

An amazing story! Now, I must admit that I never really knew who Kip Adotta was, and I didn't really need to know that when i started reading the book. Now, I know more about him and his story. There is a sense of survivalness behind that comedian, and I'm guessing, he has a lot to build upon with his humor. The writing is wonderfully put together, and his story is laid out for the entire world to read. There is always more behind the celebrity than people know, and this story shows it. Anyone who reads this may become a fan, if not one already, and I've just become one, not just of the comedian, but the writer as well.
