A rant-ish memoir by the veteran stand-up comedian and former co-host of That Metal Show, with a foreword by Jim Norton
Twitter Trolls. Facebook Freaks. Instagram Exhibitionists. These are just a few of the creatures our technology-obsessed culture has spawned in its quest to simplify our lives. The madness is so universal now that everyone has dealt with it. You login to Facebook, read a stupid post, and immediately want to tell your "friend" to go have relations with himself. Sure, social media may keep us connected, but it is a breeding ground for idiots, and these idiots have crowd-sourced a storm of useless information, corny jokes, and douchebag drama that's wasting our time and screwing with our peace of mind.
Thankfully, popular comedian and television host Jim Florentine has a solution for those of us on the verge of bashing our iPhones to bits. In Everybody Is Awful, Florentine attacks awful people and awful situations with the same biting satire and cringe-worthy humor that made him famous on television shows like Crank Yankers, Meet the Creeps, and That Metal Show.
Along the way, Everybody Is Awful takes listeners through the author's formative years, a time filled with rebellion and horrible behavior, to the crazy early days of his career as a stand-up comedian. Florentine also recounts how he developed an obsession with pranks that morphed into his uniquely vigilante style of comedy and made him one of the most legendary prank callers of all time.
Florentine excels at channeling the core rage we all feel at the seemingly small annoyances of life and his fans love the cathartic experience of his hilarious ranting and raving, a tradition continued in Everybody Is Awful. Acting as a de facto therapist, Florentine diagnoses awful behavior, shames awful people, and offers comedic takes on how to reclaim our lives from it all.

"I saw his face." Deborah Hall's words launched the destiny of two men from very different worlds. Ron Hall was an international art dealer with upscale tastes; Denver Moore was a homeless drifter with a dangerous past. Millions have read about their unlikely bond through their first book, Same Kind of Different as Me - a New York Times best seller and now a major motion picture.
Workin' Our Way Home describes the 10 years Ron and Denver lived together after Miss Debbie's death. Written in both Ron's and Denver's unique voices, their inspiring (and often hilarious) adventures include:
- Their sometimes-bizarre life together in the Murchison Mansion
- Denver accidentally almost burning the house down - twice
- The challenges involved with making a movie
- Two visits to the White House
- Travelling the country to raise awareness about homelessness
- And much more
With both wit and wisdom, this book reveals God's plan lived out through these men and those closest to them, including their passion to fulfill Debbie's dream of easing the pain and humiliation associated with homelessness, poverty, and inequality.
"Whether we is rich or whether we is poor, or somethin in between, this earth ain't no final restin place. So in a way, we is all homeless - ever last one of us - just workin our way home." (Denver Moore)
