Don't Listen to Your Heroes' Audiobooks

I was excited to listen to this book being a huge fan of Jay and Dan for most of my life. But after kicking his book off right from the start with an off-colour joke about Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner, the tone was set for an uncomfortable listen.

I like racy, borderline humour when it's self-aware, but this book is full of stories of Jay being a primadonna and completely unaware bozo - full of stories of him throwing tantrums when he doesn't get his way, in one case ruining an opportunity for one of his colleagues because he complained about deserving it more, another where he chose to be an intolerable a-hole to hotel staff in the UK - sometimes offering half-hearted statements of regret about it, and sometimes none at all.

I wish I didn't get this audiobook and could just keep pretending Jay Onrait seems like a likable guy, but that ship has sailed. Maybe others won't be as irritated as me about it, but after three jokes in a row about Ryan Seacrest's body I couldn't keep listening to him for the full length of the book.

His reading was good though.

Super disappointing

I kept reading, thinking looking for redemption - what an arsehole. Dan must be one amazing pal.
