Description

It’s her well-evoked earliest years which pull you into her story, though, built loosely around a family legend that considers her the resurrection of her murdered Nigerian grandmother, Patience, destined to fulfil a prophecy that she would ‘speak perfect English, live unfettered by men or children, work a man’a job and travel the world as a free spirit’.

There is no man, woman or child funnier than Gina Yashere. They may be as funny but definitely not funnier. If you don't believe me, read this funny ass book." — Chris Spencer, comedian, writer, and executive producer If your Mom is cool, might I recommend that you get her this book for Mother's Day? She'll love Gina's Mom, possibly even finding a little of herself in there, particularly if she sacrificed for you and your siblings and placed enormous expectations on you. Of course, you'll want to read it yourself, first, so that when Mom starts citing some of the random lines at you you'll get the jokes. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go get caught up on her appearance in Season 2 of The Standups on Netflix.

I wasn’t disappointed in the least. I chose to listen to the book for once rather than read it and it was a good choice. Hearing the accents and Gina’s boisterous intonations brought her story to life in a fun way. The book ends with her making the finals of the NBC reality show Last Comic Standing, which opened more doors than an advent calendar. That’s a point that leaves plenty of room for a style sequel should the publishers want one. The British comedian of Nigerian heritage and co-executive producer and writer of the CBS hit series Bob Hearts Abisholachronicles her odyssey to get to America and break into Hollywood in this lively and humorous memoir. Incredibly, Gina holds the title of being the first female engineer with the UK branch of Otis, the largest lift company in the world, where she went through a baptism of fire from her racist and sexist co-workers. Not believing her life was difficult enough, she later left engineering to follow her ambition of becoming a stand-up comic. It ended up being rather anticlimactic and I thought it was interesting. I immediately wondered if her controlling and conservative mother (who wouldn’t even let her go to friends’ parties in the neighborhood or take swimming lessons at school) would have been so passive, if Gina wasn’t the successful international comedian she was.

Not me thinking I spaced out in the later half , only to relisten to this again to find out I didn't space out and it was infact how the book ended. 😂 The British comedian of Nigerian heritage and co-executive producer and writer of the CBS hit series Bob Hearts Abishola chronicles her odyssey to get to America and break into Hollywood in this lively and humorous memoir.Going to Church Doesn't Make You a Holy Person Any More Than Going to a Garage Makes You a Mechanic 59 If you aren't familiar with Gina Yashere, stop reading this review and go watch her thirty minute special on Netflix's show The Standups--the most laughter per minute stand up special I've seen in a while.
