Publisher's Summary

Comedian Jim Norton is dirty...really dirty...the kind of dirty that makes The Aristocrats look like a knock-knock joke. Fortunately for him, his kind of dirty humor has earned him the distinction of being third microphone on the immensely popular Opie & Anthony syndicated radio show. In Happy Endings, Jim brings his raw, hilarious, and offensively honest comedy to Audible® listeners.

Jim will discuss everything from his affinity for hookers to stalking Black Sabbath and Alan Alda to always getting stuck with the hot girl's fat friend. He will share some of his experiences with Opie and Anthony, including his arrest on the infamous Voyeur Bus (a bus filled with naked girls that drove around Manhattan flashing passers-by). Many more heartwarming stories will be included in what is sure to be the most controversial title of 2007.

In addition to being a regular on the Opie & Anthony Show, Norton sells out comedy shows across the country. He starred on the recent HBO series Lucky Louie and was a regular on Comedy Central's Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn. He has appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Show with David Letterman, and other national shows.

Norton had this to say about his forthcoming title: "It's ironic that many of the stories revolve around prostitution, because that's where all proceeds from this...will be going. Actually, that's probably more disgusting and creepy than ironic."

    "Jim Uncensored"

    **WARNING** This book is for adults only, infact only for adults who could handle profanity, sex and off color humor. If you are one of these adults then this is a must "read". Jim has made me more of a fan.

    "Funny but old O & A stories"

    I LOVE!!!! little Jimmy so I'm hesitant to write anything but a positive review. This is a funny book and you won't be dissapointed by it. That being said it was a lot of regurgitated stories from the O & A show. If your a fan however, this is not to be missed.

    Happy birfday Jimmy!!!!! (I know how you like these !!)

    "Touching Journal Entries"

    This boy was a tear jerker about a young man's struggle to become the best Litte Jimmy he can be. There are classic stories about the nice girls that help him work out his issues.
    You finally know the starts of the widely popular monster rain.
    A must read

    "Happy Endings"

    A fine literary masterpiece brought to life by charismatic lad that brought you "Monster Rain" and "Big Boy Made a Doody". Sure to be an enduring classic that will resonate with future generations.

    Good day sir.

    "Pretty Much What I Expected"

    The story Jim Norton tells in this book is as I expected, being a listener of Opie & Anthony. Norton does not hide behind anything in this book, his stories are graphic, personal, and filled with a lot of self-deprecation. He's a great narrator, I couldn't imagine anyone else reading his story, and he does a great job presenting the stories. If you are a fan of his stand-up, I recommend the book.

    "ok"

    if you're a fan, you've already heard all of these stories on the O&A show. If you've never heard of Norton before, it'll give you a good laugh... Otherwise, it's all old material.

    "horrifically unfunny"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    i think jims comedy is alright so i wanted to see what his life was like and maybe get a laugh out of it but its basically the same story over and over. trying way too hard to be dirty and vulgar. good voice and easy to listen to but the book sucks.

    no


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    yes


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    Story
    "It's Yimmy, pure and simple!"

    What more can I say, it's lil Jimmy... candid and brutally honest.

    The reading during the first 20 minutes is not great... not sure if this was Jims first reading, very flat. After that he gets settled in however, the rest is honestly not reviewable as it is very much down to taste.

    Best way to put it; if you like Jim Norton, you'll love this!
