Stutterer Interrupted: The Comedian Who Almost Didn’t Happen
Funny is funny. It’s a simple concept, but there are plenty of idiots out there who will tell you that funny isn’t funny if the person telling the jokes is a woman, or political, or ethnic, or disabled. These idiots believe that their brand of funny is the only acceptable brand of funny. And if you’re not sure how I feel about that, well, I’ve already used the word idiot twice to describe them.
The world of comedy is wide, populated by different voices. One of those voices stutters and her name is Nina G. But that doesn’t stop her from being one of the funniest comics on the circuit today. Stutterer Interrupted chronicles Nina’s efforts to come to terms with both her condition and the reaction of others to her condition, all while forging a unique voice in comedy.
This is a wonderful, hilarious, outrageous book, full of anecdotes that tickle your funny bone and occasionally tug at your heartstrings. Nina is a deft storyteller, managing to wring humor from every situation, but never losing track of the important message underlining the entire book.
This is a book about acceptance, about finding yourself, and about being funny while you do it. It’s a terrific read.
