Political humor is not lacking these days but most of what we get is censored. Not any more, not being politically correct and swearing are all part of this book and if you have seen Denis Leary’s standup act you would understand the book would be half the size without it. As excepted he goes after most of our political figures and inserts just enough logic to make us think after we stop laughing. He tells several stories about being mistaken for someone else like Kevin Bacon, Willem Dafoe, Bryan Adams just to mention a few. Mistaken not just by fans but other famous people. He tells a few tales about being behind the scenes with some famous rock legends like the Rolling Stones, Rod Steward and David Bowie again just to name a few. What’s left? Well him making fun of himself. The stories are funny, touching and they show a sensitive side behind the funny man. If you are looking for a good laugh, knowing that is hard to come by these days, then pick up this book and enjoy not being censored or politically correct for a while…even if it is only in your mind.
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
