Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

At the beginning of Dirty Jokes and Beer, Drew Carey comes right out and says, "Maybe I should have hired a ghostwriter, but I wanted to write the book myself." Forthrightness is one of the best qualities of Carey's collection, which is sure to satisfy fans of his eponymous sitcom. In any event, there's little likelihood of the book falling into the wrong hands. Don't think penis jokes are funny? Don't buy it. Don't want to know what the censors wouldn't let Drew put in the show? Ditto. What makes Carey's no-nonsense attitude even more attractive is the fact that he often turns the spotlight on himself, like so:
I know that I make a lot of jokes about it, but I'm not really happy with the way I look lately. My dream of finally being able to make it with an eighteen-year-old cheerleader is slipping through my fingers.
So, I'm going to lose the weight.
I'm going to lose the weight, get a light tan, and get my back waxed. And, I'm going to buy a cheerleader outfit for the next girl I start dating. A cheerleader outfit and a riding crop. Why hold back?
There's an unexpected edge of dissatisfaction, of unprocessed anger, that seeps between the lines. Sometimes Carey ventures into boneheadedness--as in a pointless rant against the sexual harassment policy at Warner Brothers and how it makes his life hard. More often, though, he comes across as a drinking buddy on a particularly funny night. That's what Carey set out to do--and there's room on many bookshelves for that. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Synopsis

The star of "The Drew Carey Show" presents a collection of vignettes based on the people and places he encountered on the way to fame and speaks back to his show's critics. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

Format: Taschenbuch
I just finished reading a translation of the Nina Berberova novel The Book of Happiness (published by New Directions). Normally, of course, I read only socially/morally uplifting and intellectually challenging books, but from time to time Mr. Hyde wants to come out of the closet and flash somebody. Sometimes I can hold off this attack with a bit of froth, like a mystery novel; at other times, only what I call (for want of a better title) Crud Books will do. I just picked up a great one: Drew Carey's Dirty Jokes and Beer: Stories of the Unrefined. Criteria for judging great crud books include vulgarity, filth, and humor almost any adult would be ashamed to admit they like. My favorite chapter includes 101 mostly hilarious jokes about genital elephantisis, to use a euphemism. Carey's prose is good enough. He also prefaces almost every chapter with a very funny dirty joke.
After a good amount of this kind of carrying-on, however, comes a very strange part indeed: the stories of the unrefined. It seems Carey wanted to write a book of short stories. The consensus from his friends and business associates who read these stories, however, was "dark," and Carey can't sell dark, only funny. So they get slipped in after Carey has given the customers what they expect - a real professional. The stories are dark indeed (and also funny), and if they are based, even remotely, on what actually happened to him (they sound like they do), I can understand why he tried to commit suicide twice.
The stories are mostly about down-and-outs and marginal characters in Cleveland (West Side equivalents of R. Crumb and Harvey Pekar), so that part was fairly interesting to me, since I grew up in Cleveland as a somewhat marginal figure.

Ok the reason I gave this book a rate of 2 1/2 is because a little bitmore than half of Drew Carey's book was so heartfelt and so funny.Hestated his thoughts on life,his family stories,his big screen t.v. and that made a great first half.He had some of the funniest jokes i have ever heard,his 101 jokes,I will not say the name of them because there may be some children looking at this review.I can say,being that I am a male and live by Ohio I can relate to some of his experiences. But,when we get into his short stories I nearly gave up on him.I was hoping for the book to end so I could start to read a quality book.When the last page came upon,I was glad and hardly read it.
If you are sure you need to read this book,check it out from the local library or borrow it from a friend.Do not waste your money.
Yes I am a teen male,I enjoy reading "dirty jokes" and things but what Carey is writing about is rape and bull.
Good Day...

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
When I first began to read this book I was very shocked at the jokes and the language that he used (picturing the Drew seen on televison) but then I realized that this is the way that most guys think. I never put this book down. He put an honest a hardworking effort into this book and it came out great. I just couldn't stop laughing. I had no clue that it would be like this and I loved it because it surprised me. I especially like the jokes that he put in front of every chapter and his stories that wrap up the book. In conclusion I would like to say that you must look at the title. If you don't like books containing foul language and dirty jokes well you might as well push the back button on your browser but ..... if you love dirty jokes and you wanna have a good laugh I recommend that you read Dirty Jokes and Beer : Stories of the Unrefined by Drew Carey.

I got this book as a christmas gift this year(Thanks Mom and Dad) I was very excited to get it because 1. Drew is one of my favorite TV shows and 2. Because even though it came out a long time ago I had been waiting until it came out in paperback to buy it and read it(I hardly ever buy books in hardcover unless its history because it costs too much. After all that waiting this book didn't disappoint. The only time I put it down was to go to sleep at night. It is by far the best star written book I've read.The only part of the book I didn't like were the short stories at the end. This is not to say I didn't like the stories. They just didn't belong in this book. Drew should write a book of just short stories. It would be great.

I used to live for Wednesday night and Drew Carey. He seemed like a guy that I could take home. After reading his book, I wondered, "what's his problem with women?" I was offended by his constant references to getting laid--has this guy ever had a girlfriend that he cared about? Regarding the captions by his pictures that say "I'm not gay," He doesn't seem to really like women, that I wonder.
I also didn't like his disrespectful attitude toward our country's leaders. Carey's a comedian and college drop-out- why does he think that he could do a better job? Whatever happened between Clinton and Paula Jones, I think that the office of the president deserves some respect.

I thought Drew's first book was the funniest I've ever read! If you like Drew's stand-up style then you'll love his written work! I laughed out loud, even in the middle of class!
The true stories from Carey's thoughts and past are funny because they are things we can all relate to. The jokes at the beginning of each chapter are classics. I still laugh when I tell them to my friends.
His short stories also left my sides aching. They loaded with humor and are actually pretty interesting for someone who never tried to be a true author. All-in-all his stories are a fun read.
If you ask me, as long as people like to laugh, they'll fall for "Dirty Jokes and Beer"
