In this heartfelt memoir, Saget relives his childhood, loss of close family members, stand-up career, and breakthrough on the sitcom Full House, as well as his work on America's Funniest Home Videos and parts on shows such as Entourage. Fans will find more earnest reflection here than laughs, although even the touching stories of loss are scattered with Saget's trademark anatomical and scatological one-liners. Saget makes a point of skipping behind-the-scenes dirt from the entertainment world, although he does relate a few amusing stories where he is the butt of the joke. Instead, listeners can expect to hear thoughtful tales of the author meeting his comedy idols as well as pieces expressing gratitude for his career, family, fans, and fellow comedians and actors. Chapters are arranged thematically rather than chronologically, often revealing his thoughts on the close relationship between suffering and comedy. Saget's narration could have used a bit more energy, but his tone closely matches the mood of the book. VERDICT Recommended for Saget fans and those who enjoy learning about comedians' process.âCliff Landis, Georgia State Univ. Lib., Atlanta[Page 62]. (c) Copyright 2014.
