A Load of Hooey

A Load of Laughs

Review by: The Audiobook ReviewThis was one of those books that popped up in my suggested listens at just the right time. I was in desperate need of a laugh and Bob Odenkirk delivered the goods. I couldn't say for certain if I knew his work that well before I got to know him as Saul Goodman (Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul), or if I knew of his comedy chops. This book set me straight and I'll be looking up more of his comedy in the near future.

It's basically a collection of short, comedic skits that range a wide variety of topics, starting at why one should not read on the toilet, Hitler at a dinner party as the allies were bombing the living hell out of everything around them (with a sly Fawlty Towers nod dropped in if I'm not mistaken), the second meeting of Lazarus and Jesus, and a whole host of rapid-fire jokes and asides that had me cracking up.

Sure, with a shotgun approach to comedy there are going to be a couple of duds, ones that don't hit home on my funnybone. Fortunately, these were few and far between for me so I'm not deducting any stars for those.

Narrated by Odenkirk and a host of others including the distinctive voice of David Cross, this was a listen that hit all the right spots for me.
