Praise

“I’ve known Bob [Odenkirk] for over 30 years, and yet I had to read this book to believe his stunning career arc. I can’t think of another entertainer who has improbably morphed so many times, and all through real genius and determination.”—Conan O’Brien

“Written before his heart attack, the actor’s memoir was already appointment reading—he regales his audience with stories of his time coming up in Chicago’s comedy scene and breaking into Hollywood—but now it feels even more essential.”Entertainment Weekly

“This book would have been welcome news no matter what, but it’s especially sweet following Odenkirk’s recovery from a scary July heart attack that saw the star collapse on the set. We’ll take all the Odenkirk we can get.”USA Today

“Bob Odenkirk’s elegantly titled Comedy Comedy Comedy Drama takes readers on a hilarious tour of the comedian and actor’s career. . . . Celebrity memoirs are a dime a dozen, but if there were one we’d put our money on as being well worth the time this year, it’s this one.”AV Club

“For laugh-worthy stories from nowhere comedy clubs to red carpets, pick up Comedy Comedy Comedy Drama from Emmy-winning Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul actor Bob Odenkirk.Parade
 
“Bob Odenkirk (sp?) is an exceptionally and uniquely talented man who has had a huge influence on comedy for more than three decades. And now he’s given us his P.O.V. on that journey. This book is filled not only with lessons on ‘making it’ in ‘showbiz’ but also regular old life lessons as well (including his killer recipe for ‘Granny’s Sunday Loaf’). It’s funny, informative, and like the author himself, disarmingly honest. I look forward to meeting him one day.”—David Cross

“Fascinating . . . illuminating . . . [a] fun, thoughtful book.”Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“All readers who enjoy truth telling and satire will find Odenkirk’s memoir engaging, as will all his fans who want to know why and how this famous comedian transformed himself into a serious actor.”Booklist

“Oftentimes hilarious . . . gleeful and irreverent . . . Comedy fans will find plenty of laughs and some heartening lessons, too.”Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Odenkirk recounts fascinating and humorous behind-the-scenes stories from the many sets he’s worked on, plus insights about big names in entertainment. . . . [His] account of triumph, struggle, and his firm belief that comedy is a unifying source of connection will inspire his fans and motivate aspiring entertainers.”Library Journal
