Review | Seriously…I’m Kidding by Ellen DeGeneres

Ellen, stop making me laugh. Seriously…I’m kidding.

The fun thing about comedy is that while you’re laughing, the joke often has something truthful about life in it. And that’s exactly what Ellen does in her book.

A lot of her jokes are about society, how people used to interact compared to social media. And I like her upbeat, cheerful tone.

Part of the reason why it’s so great is that Ellen has a really conversational style. It’s reminiscent of her talk show, making the reader comfortable with the content. She also tries to to appeal to many audiences (partly as a joke), by providing a variety of content, while still appealing to a large audience.

The one issue I really have is that the book can get a little too conversational at times. I get frustrated because I can’t talk back and it feels like a one-sided conversation. In that way, this would probably be a really fun audiobook.

I don’t really have much to say beyond that. I don’t read this genre…well, ever, but I did enjoy the book. Maybe I’ll delve into Tina Fey’s Bossypants or Amy Pohler’s Yes Please.

Final Verdict

Recommendation: Read.  Seriously…I’m Kidding is a fun, quick read that fans of Ellen and her talk show are sure to enjoy.

  1. Ellen is hilarious. Whenever I have bad day I always go on youtube and lookup the hidden camera with David Beckham and the masseuse. It always cracks me up. XD
    But this sounds like a fun read!
