Need a break from all the holiday hoopla? Then have a laugh with some of the funniest women around.
When you’re stressed and can’t laugh at your own life, spend some time laughing at the lives of the funny women of comedy and turn that frown upside down.
The most in-demand comedian of the moment is Amy Schumer, who started her comedic career in stand-up and earned her first break on the reality show “Last Comic Standing.” She continued that success with a Comedy Central Stand-up special and skit show “Inside Amy Schumer.” In her first foray into non-fiction writing, she chronicles some hilarious, heart-wrenching, and explicit experiences in a collection of essays. From her observations as a child of divorce and love of New York City to working with her siblings to create her first feature-length film, Trainwreck, which won the Hollywood Film Award for “Comedy of the Year” in 2015. Just like her stand-up, Amy’s sarcastic, snarky, uproarious, and ultimately genuine voice is center stage in The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo. Amy reminds us that we can find the funny in any situation, no matter how awkward, sad, or just plain disgusting. Ultimately, Amy reveals how she received and now feels about that crooked lower back tattoo, and expresses her opinion about what she thinks that tattoo conveys to society. This collection of essays is not just a narcissistic way for Amy to talk more about herself, but a full-fledged attempt at displaying who she really is, how she came to be who she is, and the causes she is passionate about. Also, by the time you finish the audio book of The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo recorded by Amy herself, you will feel like you have spent an evening getting to know Amy at her beautiful New York City apartment: sipping wine, eating pasta, sharing entertaining stories of the past, and discussing current events and social issues.
