Viviane's book review for us this week amid some of the things we are missing during the Covid

After performing in pizza parlors, bars, theaters, and college campuses for nearly four years, I cannot tell you how much I miss stand-up comedy this week. Seeing people sweat for ten minutes to make others laugh, and eventually succeeding amazingly, or failing fantastically, is a once in a lifetime experience that I wish everyone to try.  

While clubs are still closed, the silly writings of comics keep my appetite at bay. Eddie Izzard’s autobiography, Believe Me: A Memoir of Love, Death, and Jazz Chickens, is one of the most heartbreaking, hilarious, and poetic books by a world class funny person. 

The special quality about stand-up comedians is that they are funny in person and on paper, and Izzard’s novel is a perfect example.
