Born Standing Up: A Comic's Life
Jul 18, 2009
It's a sprint through his stand-up career, but it's more than a celebrity timeline, there's some valuable self-reflection. A child's magic act evolved into an unremarkable comedy experiment, then -- after some fortunate luck and a great deal of work -- into something genuinely but not infinitely funny. Understandably, fame became unaccommodating and exhausting. I'd say it's worth reading.
