Idiot

Life Stories from the Creator of Help Helen Smash

Read by Laura Clery

A 2020 Audie Award Finalist

From YouTube star and Facebook Video sensation Laura Clery comes a collection of comedic essays in the vein of We Are Never Meeting in Real Life by Samantha Irby and You’ll Grow Out of It by Jessi Klein.

Laura Clery makes a living by sharing inappropriate comedy sketches with millions of strangers on the Internet. She writes songs about her anatomy, talks trash about her one-eyed rescue pug, and sexually harasses her husband, Stephen. And it pays the bills!

Now, in her first-ever book, Laura recounts how she went from being a dangerously impulsive, broke, unemployable, suicidal, cocaine-addicted narcissist, crippled by fear and hopping from one toxic romance to the next…to a more-happy-than-not, somewhat rational, meditating, vegan yogi with good credit, a great marriage, a fantastic career, and four unfortunate-looking rescue animals. Still, above all, Laura remains an amazingly talented, adorable, and vulnerable, self-described…Idiot.

With her signature brand of offbeat, no-holds-barred humor, Idiot introduces you to a wildly original—and undeniably relatable—new voice.

Laura Clery is an actress and comedian best known for posting daily comedy sketches to Facebook and YouTube, where she has a combined seven million followers and upwards of two billion views. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, son, and motley crew of rescue animals.

"Laura Clery uses the spunk and irreverence that made her a YouTube sensation while narrating her audiobook. She is peppy in all the right parts, especially during reminiscences about her nerdy teenage years. Clery balances this with a more poised persona as she reflects on other mile markers, such as a classmate's suicide in middle school. For fans of her online work, this is a way to learn more about the personal background behind a public persona. Clery delivers her reflections on life, love, and loss with an infectious energy. Her ruminations will inspire listeners to see the humorous side of their own lives. Full of self-deprecation, this is a fun listening experience."
