Wife. Sister. Human. Warrior. Falcon. Yardstick. Turban. Cabbage.</a></em> is the title of the stand-up comedian’s tell-all-or-most memoir. In it, he vividly shares stories of his childhood, depression, alcoholism (he’s now more than 11 years sober), and that time he put an egg in a microwave.</p><p>Rob Delaney is one of the rare people whose time spent on <a href="https://www.twitter.com/robdelaney">Twitter</a> has helped his career. Before he was making money as a comedian, he was sending out 140 character or less jokes like “Imagine a shark. Terrified yet? Well you will be when I tell you that THE SHARK IS MADE OF GLUTEN!” and “The hour I lose from daylight savings time will now be multiplied by 6 as I try to change the time on the clock in my car.” and many others not exactly suitable for radio.</p><p>His twitter-persona is primarily brash, irreverent, and fearless. His memoir is funny - but also stuffed with thoughtful reflections on too-real experiences. And then - as you can count on from any good comedian - funny again.</p><p> Fri, 08 Nov 2013 16:12:00 +0000 Sarah LaDuke 77292 at http://wamc.org Rob Delaney: Humoriste. Auteur. Père.
