WOULD EVERYBODY PLEASE STOP? Reflections on Life and Other Bad Ideas

by | Read by Jenny Allen

Biography & Memoir • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Writer-comedian Jenny Allen narrates offbeat reflections on life. Her clear and lively voice moves quickly from one observation to another in a peppy stream of consciousness. Allen emphatically spits out the profanities that are scattered throughout her narrative and maintains a mostly deadpan delivery of sarcastic one-liners in her observations of culture and trends, such as the use of made-up words or the pretentiousness of overusing certain words. For the more heartwarming stories--such as how she dealt with people's concern about her chemotherapy and her weight issues as a child and continued love for food as an adult, Allen's modifies her tone to bring out a tenderness while maintaining lightheartedness in her delivery. Her imitations of crows and of Elmer Fudd talking about a certain "wabbit" "waffing" at him are just plain funny. M.F. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2017]
