Rob Delaney: Better on Twitter.
on 2 December 2015
I love Delaney, yes love. He's hilarious, sharp, endearing and gross all at the same time. He's also shaping up to be a brilliant actor (see TV show 'Catastrophe' w/ Sharon Horgan ) - but it's safe to say that I like his writing better in the confines of a 140 character word limit. In book form, not so much. The writing is clunky and sometimes leads to nowhere, rendering it, for the most part a little dull and jarring to read. Only when he uses short sentences to round off a story or highlight a punchline is he truly laugh out loud funny and that's because he's so good at condensing such metaphysical thoughts into concise soundbites that even I can understand.
If you enjoy Delaney or know someone who does, then for the sake of just being a fan, give it a try. There are some genuinely heart-warming and funny moments in here, but it's not up to par with other autobiographies that have been written by present day comics, i have to say.
