Description

You may know him as Mango, Mr. Peepers, the gibberish-spouting Suel Forrester, or one half of the head-bopping brothers in A Night at the Roxbury. Maybe you remember him as the forlorn Gothic kid Azrael Abyss, Gay Hitler, or the guitarist in the “More Cowbell” sketch. Whichever it is, Chris Kattan has earned a spot in the hearts of a generation of comedy fans. 

Chris Kattan has defied comparison, expectations, and sometimes gravity with his inimitable style of physical comedy. By creating some of the most memorable Saturday Night Live characters, as well as his many roles in film and television, Kattan has remained one of the most fearless and versatile comedians in the world. 

Not long after Chris was labeled one of the improv group Groundlings’ “must-see” performers in the company, he was cast on SNL - and within the first six weeks, Chris’ film career also took off.  

Now, for the first time, Kattan opens up about eight seasons on SNL, performing alongside friends and future legends including Will Ferrell, Jimmy Fallon, and Tina Fey, and guest hosts from Charlize Theron to Tom Hanks to David Bowie. He also shares stories of his unusual childhood (involving a secluded mountain with zen monks) with Leonard Cohen and Alan Watts. Baby, Don’t Hurt Me offers an unprecedented look into Chris’ life, from his fascinating relationship with Lorne Michaels to a private Valentine’s Day dinner with Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, an unforgettable flight with Beyoncé, and even breaking his neck on live television. 

Baby, Don’t Hurt Me is a candid, revealing memoir from a timeless comedian and a window into the world of millennium-era SNL, from the rehearsals to the after-after parties, as narrated by your hilarious and inspiring friend - who just so happened to be there for all of it.

Funny and complex.

I enjoyed the audio book very much. It is well written and Chris takes the listener on an interesting and entertaining trip trough his childhood career and love life. I kept pausing and looking up his Work on YouTube and that was awesome to be able to flesh out the story with SNL clips.
The only thing that bothered me a little bit was the lack of ownership he takes him his part in the relationships that ended....friendships and romantic relationships. There is just a lack of rigorously honest self appraisal. He implies that he has no idea why some friends dropped him and in his romantic relationships, they always just “grew apart”. I was hoping there would be a deeper level of honesty.
But overall it was awesome and I loved it!

Entertaining Memoir, Fun Peak into SNL

Fun read. I always love a peak behind the velvet curtains of TV and Movies. Chris does talk about being on the show and the different guests and what they were like. He also was very open about his struggles on the show and since. His honesty is refreshing, and he doesn't hold grudges either. Not the deepest book, but definitely enjoyable.

i love Chris and wish him the best!

i love silly and physical comedy, so not a surprise to be a fan of Chris'. I'm glad he wrote this book explaining what happened to him, because all his fans have been wondering for years. i was tickled to learn about his upbringing and where he got his sense of humor and talent.

Great book! Definitely worth the read.

I was not sure, in the beginning, if I would enjoy this book. Chris Kattan was one of my favorite cast members on SNL when I was a teenager and I was worried that the book would not engage me as well as others. I am pleased to say that I enjoyed every minute of this audio book. I loved listening to his stories about his childhood, his time on SNL, and afterwards. The book gave me answers to questions I had had about him after his days on SNL, which was nice, but it also helped me to understand his struggles on a deeper level, which I appreciated. I would definitely recommend this book, even if you only care about his affiliation with SNL, there is so much more packed into the book.

Spoken as Kattan fan

I bought this book as a Kattan fan wondering where he disappeared to. I'm not one to buy or look at celebrity media so I was clueless about most of his life after SNL. He tells his story unedited...at least it feels like this. What I am sure of now is he is more fearless than he admits as this book won't leave you rosey eyed about the SNL alum. He is simply a funny guy who had a dream that he saw to reality and all the messy human stuff in between. I gave it 4 stars only because I got frustrated with his telling a few times. It's like listening to a friend give you the reasons why they mess up and you are just frustrated because you can't fix it for them and they don't seem totally aware of themselves. Bravo to him for taking the leap and good luck to him navigating the complicated web he weaves. I hope he gets the closure he is seeking although, Lord knows, it ain't over till it's over baby! God bless, God speed.

Mango’s Juicy Bio

Chris Kattan’s memoir is part coming of age story, part SNL behind the scenes, with bits of comedy history recommendations that would make Leonard Maltin proud. Bonus fun for anyone who has been to Washington State’s Bainbridge Island, where Chris went to high-school. A surprisingly interesting, funny and moving read! But Haddaway’s “What is Love?” will get stuck in your head.
