Publisher's Summary

Andy Richter: TV icon and comedy legend, probably was born somewhere, grew up someplace, and maybe even did a bunch of stuff. All that boring garbage could be jammed into a classic celebrity biography, but to write that would take work and effort. Two things this Audible Original wasn’t about to stoop to.

Jam-packed with misinformation, outright lies, and probable slander, The Incredibly Inaccurate Biography of Andy Richter is totally - and tonally - wrong. A “lie-ography,” if you will, manufactured by some of America’s funniest and most ignorant writers, each working independently of the others, all following one guiding principle: a mutual disregard for the truth. And a mutual disdain for Andy.

Performed by Nick Offerman and disputed throughout by the actual Andy Richter, TIIBOAR traces the arc of Andy’s life, career, and even his ultimate passing (we just checked, and it turns out, he is unfortunately still alive). What’s more, it even covers his afterlife. How many biographies do that? (We did no research, but assume it is very few.)

Contributing writers include Jeopardy champion Ken Jennings, comedy legend Andy Daly, New York Times best-selling author Samantha Irby, and writers from The Simpsons, Big Bang Theory, Modern Family, Conan, and many more.

About the Creator and Performer

Actor and writer Andy Richter returned to his role as announcer and sidekick to Conan O’Brien on Conan when it premiered on November 8, 2010. Richter rose to fame in 1993 as O’Brien’s sidekick on Late Night with Conan O’Brien and reprised this role on The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien, which premiered in 2009. In addition to numerous primetime guest-starring roles, Richter starred in the Emmy-nominated series Andy Richter Controls the Universe for Fox and Andy Barker, P.I. for NBC. His feature film work includes Robert Altman’s Dr. T and the Women, Cabin Boy, Scary Movie 2, Elf, Talladega Nights, Blades of Glory, and Semi-Pro. He can be heard as the voice of Mort in DreamWorks Studios’ Madagascar films as well as the Nickelodeon series Penguins of Madagascar and All Hail King Julien.

About the Performer

Best known as the indomitable Ron Swanson in the popular NBC television series Parks and Recreation, Nick Offerman is an uncommon quadruple threat: carpenter, comedian, actor, and author. Offerman first hit the New York Times bestseller list with the release of his semi-autobiographical work Paddle Your Own Canoe: One Man’s Fundamentals for Delicious Living, and followed it up with the best-selling Gumption: Relighting the Torch of Freedom with America’s Gutsiest Troublemakers and Good Clean Fun: Misadventures in Sawdust at Offerman Woodshop. Recently he co-wrote The Greatest Love Story Ever Told: An Oral History with wife Megan Mullally. Currently he keeps busy producing and hosting a lighthearted crafting competition, Making It, alongside Amy Poehler for NBC. As an audiobook narrator, Offerman has demonstrated an uncanny kinship with the work of Mark Twain. His narration of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer—which one Audible editor called "one of the best things I have ever listened to"—brought an American classic into the 21st century. Offerman's deadpan humor and delivery keep Twain's writing as fresh as ever.

The reason people in my neighborhood think I'm insane

I listened to this book while taking my dog for walks in my neighborhood in Brooklyn. As I listened, I would have sort of a rolling laugh. Every five minutes or so, I would hear something that resulted in me crying laughing. This book brought me so much joy. Thank you to all that shared their talents by contributing to the production.

Hilarious! Andy, Nick Offerman wall to wall comedy

This is a gem. In fact, I'm surprised a cat burglar hasn't broken in and stolen this. Maybe we should post guards around this audiobook? But what if one of the guards is secretly an accomplice to the burglar and we only find out after? That's why we don't use human guards, but instead train kangaroos with cobras in their pouches to protect this absolutely hilarious audio diamond. Anyway, it's great.

Brilliantly innacurate

Hilarious, insane and inspired. If your the type of reader who likes a grounded writing, a logical plot line and facts don’t read this. But if you want a book that u can fall asleep listening to, wake up and just keep going because the last 40 page didn’t make any sense anyway this is your jam. Nick offerman’s delivery of material written by some of the funniest tv writers ever is inspired. Andy’s cameos to complain about how it’s all lies is even better. If you liked “true story” by norm macdonald read this book. If u were really into the latest winston churchill biography you might want to pass.

Have you ever played Mad Libs?

This book is absolutely absurd. If you like ridiculous silly comedy this book is for you. Unfortunately I was actually interested in learning about Andy Richter. The book reads like an endless page out of Mad Libs. I found this very annoying after a chapter or two. I jumped chapters hoping it would end. It never seemed to stop being stupidly silly. I never finished the book it was so bad.

Wrong Narrator

I really like Nick Offerman as an actor with a suitable script. And I gave this book a chance through the into and first chapter. But Offerman’s energy was too low, and his slow, halting patter didn’t move the story along very well.

Good for a few laughs

It started out funny, soon it became routine jokes of body functions and fluids, which I quickly turned away from (several chapters). I let it run while in n the shower, feeding the dogs, cleaning the house in hopes that while I passed by my phone I'd catch something funny. There were a few times I let out a loud laugh while driving to and from work. The most memorable part was his death, reincarnation into a bat, an egg, a fly, then a toner cartridge. It was Ridiculously funny towards the end.

Andy has always had the quirky American Monty python-esque humor that you can’t find anywhere else! Funny as hell!
