I know I am, but what are you?
To be honest I had never heard of Samantha Bee or knew that she was the Senior Correspondent for Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show. I just wanted to try out this book because I thought it sounded really good as far as memoirs go. I know I am, but what are you? is a quick, cynical, interesting look into the life Samantha Bee had growing up.
I have to say that some of the funniest moments had to be when Samantha’s father and stepmother had “The Talk” with Sam. Her step mother tried to delicately approach the topic, while her father just tells it like it is in today’s world. Another favorite moment was when Samantha worked for a very brief time as an intake technician at a penis clinic. Though, my most favorite moment had to be when Samantha shared an intimate and never to be repeated bonding with her cat Newton. All I am going to say is that it is an even battle when a male cat has claimed you as his sex slave. No topic is off limits in this book. While I liked this book, I was hoping to laugh more then I did. Overall, I know I am, but what are you? is good for some giggles.
