Dirty Jokes and Beer

Rating
We all know Drew Carey from his award-winning stand-up career and his hit television show, but do we really know Drew Carey, the person? In his first book, the bawdy and irreverent "Dirty Jokes and Beer: Stories of the Unrefined," find out about all the many sides of this misunderstood Hollywood star. The Environmentally Sensitive Drew: .".. what the hell does it mean, 'Save the Planet?' Save what planet? How? Who? Why? What will it cost me? Save the Planet. Scramble the eggs. Burn the toast." The Health-Conscious Drew: "They say that exercise and proper diet are the keys to a longer, healthier life. Oh well ... Watch for my next book, How I Died While Jogging." There's even a bonus chapter with 101 punch lines like these (guess what it's about!): "It has casters. It votes. Henry Aaron used it to hit his 750th home run." Also, early reviews of his hit sitcom: "Schulman also gave 'Drew Carey' a thumbs down. 'He's not an acceptable lead ... He will not carry that show.'" And never-before-revealed notes about his show from the network censor: "November 8, 1996. Page 27 - The dialogue exchange including Oswald's line, 'Five bucks to whoever can cut the cheese on Santa' will not be acceptable. The action of Santa grabbing his crotch will also be unacceptable."

About the Author

Drew Carey grew up in Cleveland and started his career as a stand-up comic in his hometown after a disc jockey friend enlisted him to write some jokes for his radio show. A few years later, after appearing on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, he scripted and starred in his own cable special, Drew Carey: Human Cartoon, for which he won a Cable ACE Award. He was nominated for another Cable ACE Award in 1993 for his performance on Showtime's Tenth Anniversary of the Montreal Comedy Festival. After co-starring on one sitcom and co-writing another, Drew hooked up with writer/producer Bruce Helford and created The Drew Carey Show. In 1996, Drew won a People's Choice Award for "Favorite Male Performer in a New Comedy Series."

Reviews

This collection of dirty jokes, short fiction, and autobiographical tidbits will please some readers and offend others. Carey, a stand-up comic and star of his own TV show, writes mostly about sex, drinking, gambling, football, and television. One of his favorite topics seems to be his "big dick" jokes. Four-letter words predominate, giving the book a definite adolescent, male tone. Carey points out that the raunchier his material, the more popular he became, seeming almost surprised at the public's reaction. To his credit, he also includes a sampling of the negative reviews and letters he has received. The short stories are the most interesting. Carey reads with the familiarity and conviction of one reading his own work. Overall, though, this book has limited appeal; not recommended.‘Nancy R. Ives, SUNY at Geneseo
