I'm Kind of a Big Deal by Stefanie Wilder-Taylor

I'm Kind of a Big DealI'm Kind of a Big Deal by Stefanie Wilder-Taylor

The Author of This Book is Kind of Crazy, Kind of Delusional, and All Kinds of Hilarious

Whether she’s driving a limo for former Family Ties star Justine Bateman, dancing in the dark for a rarely seen Bob Dylan music video, or stalking a bachelor reject from TV’s Love Connection, Stefanie Wilder-Taylor is kind of a big deal—at least in her own mind. Smart, screwy, and scathingly funny, her tell-all essays capture every cringe-worthy moment of her kind-of famous life. From bombing as a stand-up comic for born-again Christians, to winging it as a singing waitress in an Italian restaurant, to posting open letters to Angelina Jolie and David Hasselhoff, this unstoppable L.A. transplant refuses to give up on her dreams—no matter how ill-advised—and shows us a side of Hollywood better kept hidden. When it comes to funny women—unplugged and unleashed—they don’t get any wilder than Stefanie Wilder-Taylor. . . .

My take: Stefanie Wilder-Taylor is funny. She's a stand-up comedienne and knows how to get the laughs. Her references to my marvelous 80's hair, aqua-net and parachute pants clothing had me laughing out loud. Like any stand-up comedian, Stefanie is a little on the crass side at times. She is still hilarious and not crass to the point that I was deeply offended.
This is a book best kept in the bathroom as each chapter is the perfect length for a visit there. Although a person should not laugh out loud while reading it in this room. It just would sound weird.
Fun book. Good writing. Funny lady. Nice work!
