(CLOSED) I Drink for Reason Audio Book Giveaway (3 Winners)

First off I love comedy, from seeing it in a live show to on TV or in a movie. David Cross is one of those amazing actors that makes you laugh and sometimes cry from laughing to hard. He's know for such roles as "never-nude" Tobias Funke on Arrested Development and the role of "David" in Mr. Show With Bob And David, as well as a hugely successful stand-up routine full of sharp-tongued rants and rages.

His stand up routine is out there with no holds bar on, some of my fav is like calling pseudo-celebrity. Anyone who knows me knows how we joke around about being PC. NO I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings ever but sometimes it feels a little much. And David Cross has in his acts were he loves to push the buttons of the way-too-easily offended P.C. left or the caustic, double-standard of the callous (but funnier) right, Cross has something to say about everyone, including his own ridiculous self.

If your a fan of any of his roles in TV and movies or his stand up routine then you're going to love this book. The title of the book made me laugh out loud, it's a running joke with my girlfriend who's a stay at home mom. Whenever I call to check on her, her famous words to me ... Yup you guess it "There's a reason I drink". When this audio book arrived I almost died and had to call her. Listening to it was perfect for uplifting my mood, he weaves his media mockery, celebrity denunciation, religious commentary and sheer madness into book form, revealing the true story behind his almost existential distaste of Jim Belushi ("The Belush"), disclosing the up-to-now unpublished minutes to a meeting of Fox television network executives, and offering up a brutally grotesque run-in with Bill O'Reilly. Let me just say the Bill O'Reilly one got me! And as if this wasn't enough for your laughing pleasure in these troubled times, some of the pieces splinter off with additional material being created online in exclusive video and animated web content created solely for the book-a historical first (presumably)!

With a mix of personal essays, satirical fiction posing as truth, advice for rich people, information from America's least favorite Rabbi and a top-ten list of top-ten lists, I DRINK FOR A REASON is as unique as the comedian himself, and cannot be missed.
