Synopsis: Amy Poehler is hosting a dinner party and you're invited! Welcome to the audiobook edition of Amy Poehler's Yes Please. The guest list is star-studded with vocal appearances from Carol Burnett, Seth Meyers, Michael Schur, Patrick Stewart, Kathleen Turner, and even Amy's parents - Yes Please is the ultimate audiobook extravaganza.

Also included? A one-night-only live performance at Poehler's Upright Citizens Brigade Theater. Hear Amy read a chapter live in front of a young and attractive Los Angeles audience.

While listening to Yes Please, you'll laugh, you'll cry, and you'll become convinced that your phone is trying to kill you. Don't miss this collection of stories, thoughts, ideas, lists, and haikus from the mind of one of our most beloved entertainers. Offering Amy's thoughts on everything from her "too safe" childhood outside of Boston to her early days in New York City, her ideas about Hollywood and "the biz", the demon that looks back at all of us in the mirror, and her joy at being told she has a "face for wigs" - Yes Please is chock-full of words, and wisdom, to live by.


Review: Comedienne audiobooks read by their author are so amazing! In this audiobook, Poehler even has a lot of guests read as well. This book follows Poehler's personal stories from her childhood on. I really like hearing about how much hard work each of these amazing ladies has put into their careers. The behind-the-scenes look at SNL is also really cool. I love how some of these comediennes' books overlap. In Rachel Dratch's book there are mentions of some of the same stories in this book. 

Amy Poehler is one of the funniest women out there and this book is worthy of that. If you enjoy her in anything from the Golden Globes to Parks and Rec, you need to read this book. I give it a very strong 4/5
