In recent years, several of Hollywood’s best-known female comedians have put their hilarious stories to paper. With Amy Poehler’s highly anticipated first novel, Yes Please, having just hit shelves, here’s a look at more can’t-miss memoirs by famous funny ladies to add to your reading list.
The actress’s much buzzed-about first book is finally hitting shelves on October 28. The memoir is filled with personal anecdotes and comical tales on sex, love, friendship, and parenthood. Told in the charming and hilariously honest tone all Poehler fans are familiar with, the book also includes some real-life advice, both practical and otherwise. Some other highlights include a chapter written by Seth Meyers, another by Poehler’s mother, and a letter from Hillary Clinton. The book is already getting rave reviews for hitting the right combination of hope, self-deprecation, earnestness, and, as expected, humor.
