Description

Emmy-Award winning writer and comedian Josh GondelmanA??s collection of personal stories of best intentions and mixed results. Josh Gondelman knows a thing or two about tryingA??and failing. The Emmy Award-winning stand-up comicA??dubbed a A??pathological sweetheartA? by the New York ObserverA??is known throughout the industry as one of comedyA??s true A??nice guys.A? Not surprisingly, heA??s endured his share of last-place finishes. But he keeps on bouncing back. In this collection of hilarious and poignant essays (including his acclaimed New York Times piece A??What if I Bombed at My Own Wedding?A?), Josh celebrates a life of good intentionsA??and mixed results. His true tales of romantic calamities, professional misfortunes, and eventual triumphs reinforce the notion: we get out of the world what we put into it. Whether heA??s adopting a dog from a suspicious stranger, mitigating a disastrous road trip, or trying MDMA for the first (and only) time, Josh only wants the best for everyoneA??even as his attempts to do the right thing occasionally implode. Full of the warm and relatable humor thatA??s made him a favorite on the comedy club circuit, Nice Try solidifies Josh GondelmanA??s reputation as not just a good guy, but a skilled observer of the human condition.
