"Bob Odenkirk is wrong. He's wrong about Jesus hosting a comedy show and he's wrong that his book is just, 'a load of hooey.' It's a load of funny and thoughtful is what it is. And why would one title a book that way? It gives the wrong impression to folks. It's a terrible marketing plan. It should be called, 'The Best Book in the World This Year', or, 'This is Totally Worth It!' or something along those lines. It's certainly not a load of hooey. Oh! And I looked up the definition of "hooey" as per the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. It does NOT say that! He's wrong about that too!!!! Wrong, wrong, wrong!" --David Cross "Whip-smart and laugh-out-loud funny." --Publishers Weekly "The king of alt comedy...expands his reign with this absurd collection of tirades, rhyming verse, and tips on how to avoid getting an embarrassing tattoo." --O, Oprah Magazine "Odenkirk...shows his cerebral side in his first collection of humor writing." --Maxim "Delightfully absurd" --The Weekly Alibi "A deft blend of silliness and ridicule, mirth and rage: salt augmenting sweetness." --Barnes & Noble Review "Delivered with a combination of thoughtfulness and absurdity that Odenkirk has honed over the course of his career." --A.V. Club "'A Load of Hooey' is a load of laughs." --New York Post "A toolkit for anyone with a stake in making a 'creative wage' out of our digital culture... [Cory Doctorow's] arguments are entertainingly presented, forcefully made, and easy to follow." --Quill & Quire "Very funny and immensely silly." --Portland Mercury "A Load of Hooey finds the comedy legend doing what he does best: lampooning pretension." --Chicago Reader "Spoiler alert -- it's FUNNY!" --Local IQ "Is it fair that [Odenkirk] is not only a funny, successful actor but also a funny, successful writer? Absolutely not, but fairness has even less to do with comedy than love and war." --The New York Times Book ReviewReseña del editor:
Bob Odenkirk is a legend in the comedy-writing world, winning Emmys and acclaim for his work on Saturday Night Live, Mr. Show with Bob and David, and many other seminal TV shows. This book, his first, is a spleen-bruisingly funny omnibus that ranges from absurdist monologues ("Martin Luther King, Jr's Worst Speech Ever") to intentionally bad theater ("Hitler Dinner Party: A Play"); from avant-garde fiction ("Obituary for the Creator of Madlibs") to free-verse poetry that's funnier and more powerful than the work of Calvin Trillin, Jewel, and Robert Louis Stevenson combined. Odenkirk's debut resembles nothing so much as a hilarious new sketch comedy show that's exclusively available as a streaming video for your mind. As Odenkirk himself writes in "The Second Coming of Jesus and Lazarus," it is a book "to be read aloud to yourself in the voice of Bob Newhart."
