On February 20th, Jim Florentine will release a new book called Everybody is Awful (Except You!). Channeling the core rage we all feel at the seemingly small annoyances of life, Jim takes readers through his formative years, recounting his early days as a stand-up comedian developing a unique, vigilante comedy style. He then turns to our technology-obsessed culture—social media is a breeding ground for idiots, crowd-sourcing useless information and drama that wastes our time and ruins our peace of mind. Here is the cure to our universal madness—a dose of Florentine’s hilarious and cathartic ranting and raving.
Here’s the book description.
Twitter Trolls. Facebook Freaks. Instagram Exhibitionists. These are just a few of the creatures our technology-obsessed culture has spawned in its quest to simplify our lives. The madness is so universal now that everyone has dealt with it. You log in to Facebook, read a stupid post, and immediately want to tell your “friend” to go have relations with himself. Sure, social media may keep us connected, but it is a breeding ground for idiots, and these idiots have crowd-sourced a storm of useless information, corny jokes, and douchebag drama that’s wasting our time and screwing with our peace of mind.
Along the way, Everybody Is Awful takes readers through the author’s formative years, a time filled with rebellion and horrible behavior, to the crazy early days of his career as a stand-up comedian. Florentine also recounts how he developed an obsession with pranks that morphed into his uniquely vigilante style of comedy and made him one of the most legendary prank callers of all time.
Florentine excels at channeling the core rage we all feel at the seemingly small annoyances of life, and his fans love the cathartic experience of his hilarious ranting and raving, a tradition continued in Everybody Is Awful. Acting as a de facto therapist, Florentine diagnoses awful behavior, shames awful people, and offers comedic takes on how to reclaim our lives from it all.
