Based on a true story A memoir

Norm Macdonald, 1963-

Book - 2016

"As its title suggests, Norm Macdonald tells the story of his life--more or less--from his origins in a rural small town in the-back-of-beyond Canada to an epically disastrous appearance on Star Search, to his possibly incredible account of auditioning for Lorne Michaels and his memorable run as the anchor of Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update." But Based on a True Story is much more than a memoir, it's a hilarious, inspired, very meta imagining of his life, as told t...o a deeply disturbed ghost writer whose teetering sanity and bruised ego threaten to take down the entire narrative--and possibly the comic with it. Peppered with classic jokes and long mythologized Hollywood stories, this wildly adventurous, tense, totally original, and absurdly funny memoir turns the conventional "comic's memoir" on its head and leaves the reader delightfully off kilter"--
