Mitch describes how he scaled the cliffs of Fame Mountain, got into a bathroom brawl with Neil Hamburger and partied with Tig Notaro and Brian Posehn.

1) Tig Notaro, I’m Just a Person, (New York, HarperCollins, 2016), p.46. Capsule Review: frank, confessional style but with quirky/unique worldview, unique life experience, lots about unconventional mom, distant dad; suggests that the closer you push up against death the more truly alive, self-actualized, a person can become. Slack Score: +12; Snark Score: +6; Overall FCA ranking #12

2) Norm Macdonald, Based On a True Story, a Memoir, (Toronto, HarperCollins, 2016), p. 33. Capsule Review: Funny, of course. Well-paced, although I am suspicious that some of the anecdotes might have been exaggerated or even fabricated. Slack Score: +4.7; Snark Score: +15; Overall FCA ranking #9

3) Eddie Izzard, Believe Me; A Memoir of Love, Death, and Jazz Chickens, (New York, Penguin Random House, 2017), p. 263. Capsule Review: Overly-detailed accounts of early childhood. Pretentious and unnecessary use of footnotes. However, the concept of the magical hippo that always returns in indispensable and writing is insightful and eloquent throughout. Izzard might be the most broadly accomplished FC of all time considering multiple-language performances, airplane piloting and extreme serial marathoner Slack Score: -3.3; Snark Score: +9; Overall FCA ranking #18
