About The Book

Comedian and actor Jay Mohr’s humorous memoir about the lunacy that ensues after reaching the blessed stage of parenthood.

Waxing poetic about circumcision and the benefits of the carpool lane, Mohr spins theories on spanking and ponders questions like “why do kids all wake up so damn early? It’s as if they are all preparing for life as longshoremen.” He goes on to describe the bizarre kinds of situations that all parents must face but can never be prepared for (when, for instance, his kid discovered his dog’s rear end) as well as moments of pure joy like taking his son to his first baseball game. An unorthodox tale of modern fatherhood in Hollywood, Mohr’s take on parenting is ultimately as charming as it is irreverent.

The multi-talented Jay Mohr's career has spanned over a decade. He first received audience notice with his dead-on impressions of Christopher Walken, Dick Vitale and Sean Penn on "Saturday Night Live." Soon after that, he landed his breakthrough film role as a rival sports agent in the blockbuster hit "Jerry Maguire," and followed that up in a touching good-guy turn in "Picture Perfect." Other film credits include "Playing By Heart," "Suicide Kings," "Seeing Other People," "Even Money," "The Groomsmen," "Pay it Forward," "Street Kings" and "Go," as well as comedic leads in "King's Ransom" and "Are We There Yet?"  On television, Mohr created, executive produced and hosted "Last Comic Standing," now in its sixth season. Other credits include "Action" and his most recent role as Professor Rick Payne on the CBS series "Ghost Whisperer." CBS’s brand new blockbuster “Gary Unmarried” stars Jay Mohr and has been honored with the "Favorite New TV Comedy" award at the 35th People's Choice Awards. 
          
Mohr is also well known for his sports work as host of FOX Sports Net's "NFL This Morning" and narrator of the award-winning "Beyond the Glory." Additionally, Mohr executive produced and hosted the ESPN series "Mohr Sports" an original weekly comedy/music/sports talk hour and he continues to sell out venues across the country with his stand-up routine.
