1WC +16. Currently reading Tremendous: The Life of a Comedy Savage, which is a wild book about Joey Diaz's life. He was a Cuban immigrant who moved to a rough NYC in 70s/80s as a kid, homeless after his single mother died, criminal, incarcerated, comedian and now a successful & happy family man. Erica Florentine did a great job writing this book in Joey's voice which is quite an accomplishment. It's a good book. A wild story about a man who has lived many lives. It's truly TREMENDOUS!!!

Been a fan for a while. Used to listen to his podcast when commuting to work. Found out he wrote a book and picked it up.

Ahhhh. I struggle trying to read biographies/ autobiographies. Few times I read was because a person recommended, but could never pick one up on my own.

I'm the same way, usually don't read biographies.

I'd 100% recommend if you are a fan, not sure how this book would read to someone who doesn't know Joey. It is very chaotic, a collection an organization of all of his stories.
