About the Author:

Jay Mohr was a featured performer and writer on Saturday Night Live from 1993 to 1995. His breakthrough film role was in Jerry Maguire. Other film credits include Picture Perfect, Go, Pay It Forward, and S1M0NE. Jay often guest hosts Premiere Radio's Jim Rome Show. He recently produced and hosted a weekly comedy/music/sports talk show for ESPN, and he is the creator and executive producer of NBC's hit series Last Comic Standing. He lives in Los Angeles.

From AudioFile:

As author and reader, Mohr delivers this blow-by-blow account of his time as a performer and writer on "Saturday Night Live" (1993 to 1995) with a mixture of self-pity, self-importance, and petulance. An example of his humor would be a welcome respite amid the ups and (mostly) downs of a self-absorbed wannabe who is over his head in a pressure cooker of a job and reacting badly to the heat. The closest we get are discussions of a sketch that failed and another he stole (for which SNL was sued). He doesn't even give advice to aspiring comics. The result is unfunny and uninteresting.
