As a complete SNL obsessive freak, I obviously loved this book. I had no idea, though, that Darrell Hammond had such a dark side to him. His story is so completely fascinating and his writing style makes it all the more enjoyable. There's no tortured addict or woe is me. It's stark and very real and honest; completely different from A Million Little Pieces by James Frey. I dove in fully expecting a comedian's look at life on SNL and how charming I dream it is. Hammond is a textbook dark, tortured artist who so clearly loves and has mastered what he does. After 14 years on SNL, I always admired him and LOVED his few and far between appearances in sketches. Reading this book gives my entire experience a new perspective on him, in a really, really awesome way. There's actually a lot of knowledge to be gleaned from him in this book about not being a victim and taking responsibility for your fate. Really great stuff. You can rent it for free from the Carnegie Library if your own hometown library is on our Inter-Library Loan System. Highly recommended.
