What Would Susie Say?

Bullsh*t Wisdom About Love, Life and Comedy

Read by Susie Essman

About The Book

In What Would Susie Say?, Susie Essman sheds the crasser layers to reveal how she went from an anxiety-ridden, struggling stand-up comic to being one of the funniest women on television. Emerging as one of the most successful performers in her field, Essman goes behind the scenes of a life in comedy with her funny cohorts, including Joy Behar, Rodney Dangerfield, and, of course, Larry David, while also providing side-splittingly funny wisdom on a range of topics that she’s highly unqualified to expound upon, including men, sports, hypochondria, and stepparenthood. Irreverent and refreshingly candid, What Would Susie Say? is Essman’s hilarious retort to the dubious facts of life we all face.

She divides her time between New York City and upstate New York, where she lives with her husband, four stepchildren, and two dogs.

"Of all the countless times in my life I've been directed to go fuck myself -- from waiters to rabbis to trick-or-treaters to every woman I've ever gone out with -- no one has done it with the panache and zeal of the fabulous Miss E. Sad to say, most of you will never experience that, but this book is the next best thing." -- LARRY DAVID

"I have been on the phone with Susie Essman for twenty-five years. In every conversation there is wit, there is insight, there is vetching. Now she shares all this with the world. I am no longer the lone recipient of her singular sagacity, perception, and luminosity. But I hold no malice. In fact, this stuff is so good, I even hope Rush Limbaugh and Dick Cheney read it." -- JOY BEHAR

"Susie Essman always makes me scream with laughter. If she were any wiser, she'd have witnessed the birth of Christ. What Would Susie Say? made me laugh harder than I have in years. After reading it, you'll never be at a loss for words again." -- BETTE MIDLER

"If you don't already know that Susie Essman is one of the funniest people on the planet then pick up this wonderful book with her pitch-perfect comic voice on every page. Dorothy Parker with a lot more heart." -- DAVID STEINBERG

"Don't get me wrong, I worship Susie Essman. That said, considering she knows absolutely nothing about life, love, or comedy, I'm thrilled that she managed to pull off such a brilliant hoax." -- RICHARD LEWIS
