Review: Diary of a Jackwagon by Tim Hawkins


About the book:
He’s a comedian. He’s a YouTube sensation. And now he becomes an author. Best known for his song parodies and riffs on yoga pants and homeschooling, Tim Hawkins now shares his perspective on life in the 21st century in his long-awaited debut book. Tim's topics are as wide-ranging as his stand-up comedy including marital communications (“Marriage needs a challenge flag, like in pro football”), worship music (“Pick the right key, because I’m not Barry White and I’m not a Bee Gee”), and food (“Eating a Krispy Kreme donut is like eating a baby angel”). Diary of a Jackwagon reveals a witty and relatable voice reminding readers that for life’s many difficulties, laughter is always the best medicine – when there aren’t any pills left.

My thoughts:


Diary of a Jackwagon is sure to get you laughing! If you are familiar with Tim Hawkins' comedy, you will see some of the same jokes in this book, but even knowing them I found myself laughing so hard! I loved the "Tweet Thoughts" at the end of each chapter (some were just too hysterical!).

Here are a few of my favorite quotes/jokes:

"In most arguments between a man and a woman, the man feels like he's on the same page. He just doesn't know how to read."

"I'm coming out with a new scent. And now it's gone."

"You know stories about identical twins that are separated at birth then reunite later? That never happens with socks."

"Mr. Literal then proceeded punching himself in the face in an effort to fight back the tears."

"Every time I see an "Employees must wash hands" sign in a public restroom I'm like "Thanks, but I can wash my own hands."
 


 And so many more! I completely recommend this book if you are looking to laugh! It's great!!
