"I know I am, but what are you?" by Samantha Bee

As The Daily Show with Jon Stewart's Most Senior Correspondent, Samantha Bee is known for being quirky, adorable and vicious. In her book I know i am but what are you?, Bee brings this same nature to paper, detailing the most memorable moments of her life which have helped to shape her into the woman she is today.

As she opens up about her "checkered Canadian past" she recounts her teenage crime spree as one half of a car-thieving couple, the fact that strangers seem compelled to show her their genitals, being mistaken for her mom's lesbian lover and her stint as a Japanese anime character in a touring children's show, among many other hilarious stories.

Bee is not afraid to tackle any subject and she does so in an honest and hilarious way. There were many laugh out loud moments and one in particular that had me in tears from laughing so hard. The book isn't a straight through biography, rather it's a collection of essays on different moments in her life. Bee stays true to her television persona, so if you are a fan of hers from The Daily Show, then this is a must-read book for you.
