No one other than Colin Jost could have narrated his life story, which he does so perfectly in this audiobook memoir. His trademark self-effacing delivery, honed from 15 years on "Saturday Night Live," is flat-out wonderful. In this funny and revealing audiobook, Jost discusses growing up on Staten Island, where occupational choices were limited to firefighting or garbage collecting. He tells how his missteps and bad decisions somehow led him to the place he always wanted to be, a writer for SNL. His interview with Lorne Michaels ended with the SNL boss saying, "See you around," leaving Jost unsure if he was hired. Not knowing what to do, he sat around the writers' room the rest of the day until Michaels phoned in with an assignment that kicked off a fifteen-year career.
