FAME-ISH: My Life at the Edge of Stardom by Mary Lynn Rajskub

FAME-ISH was a wild ride. I learned too much about her ex-partner’s sex life but I did learn a lot about the finances of a character actor/comedian. I am always curious about how being a side character in a big show works and how people who aren’t big names or are working continuously handle finances. It seems like it is rough!

She does seem to be a victim of a scam at one point with her ex-girlfriend who also I felt was implied to have robbed her house? I would of have liked to have more details on that.

She says she is a people pleaser a lot but I didn’t get that impression. She does seem unable to speak up in the moment but that isn’t quite the same thing.

Really an interesting book and unlike any other memoir I’ve read which really saying something.
