Contemporary Culture • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

Listeners familiar with the author's stand-up comedy will love hearing this low-key monologue about raising five small children in Manhattan. With his straightforward diction and pleasing voice, Gaffigan's performance strikes the right balance between his near-deadpan comedy delivery and the energy needed to keep a beleaguered parent engaged. Self-deprecation is the backdrop for the author's stories and observations, which all involve a measure of good-natured complaining. He's hilarious as he pokes fun at how his wife and five children give him no rest, living in a small apartment and schlepping around the big city. This fun listen will help parents remember that suffering and laughing are both part of the deal when you're raising young children. T.W. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2013]
