Diary of a Jackwagon by Tim Hawkins with John Driver

He’s a comedian. He’s a YouTube sensation. And now he becomes an author. Best known for his song parodies and riffs on yoga pants and homeschooling, Tim Hawkins now shares his perspective on life in the 21st century in his long-awaited debut book. Tim's topics are as wide-ranging as his stand-up comedy including marital communications (“Marriage needs a challenge flag, like in pro football”), worship music (“Pick the right key, because I’m not Barry White and I’m not a Bee Gee”), and food (“Eating a Krispy Kreme donut is like eating a baby angel”). Diary of a Jackwagon reveals a witty and relatable voice reminding readers that for life’s many difficulties, laughter is always the best medicine – when there aren’t any pills left.

My Thoughts
"Life is like chess. The big dude can only move one square at a time and the queen gets to go wherever she wants."
"Sure I was homeschooled, but that's neither hear nor their."
 "Is it "up the wazoo" of "out the wazoo"? I'm working on  a Common Core Math problem." 
I have always been a fan of Tim Hawkins. I have seen his shows and heard his comedy and this book was just a perfect example of how funny he is. While reading this book I have continuously laughed out loud. So much so that my kids have asked me to stop reading!
The book contained a lot of my favorite of his stand up bits as well as some I hadn't heard before. Tim definitely has a talent for writing. Each page is filled with funny anecdotes and stories. This book is perfect for the comedy fan in your life. The Tweet Thoughts at the end of each chapter also made me laugh out loud. This book is a great read if you need something light and fun-loving and easy to read. This book is clean funny you don't have to worry about if your kids were to pick it up and read it. I think I could read this book 100 times and it would still be funny. Christian Cuss Words in one of my all time favorite of his. Also his Official Worship Signals Handbook.
This is definitely a book worth purchasing for yourself or as a gift. After you read it, go see a show you won't be disappointed.
I was blessed with this book by the publisher through the Book Look Blogger program in exchange for my honest review. A positive review is not required.
