Aasif Mandvi and his family moved to America mainly because his father was fascinated with an incredible United States tradition…
You may know his from his work on The Daily Show, or in movies such as Die Hard With a Vengeance, Analyxe This, and Spider Man 2…even a Domino’s Pizza commercial.
Aasif narrates this incredibly funny audio from his early years of dancing to Michael Jackson to his first kiss; to later when he screws up Brook Shields party to receiving tv and movie rolls beyond “here, wear this turban,” and “”get on this flying carpet.” Aasif shares his lifes ups and downs of being an Indo-Muslim-British-American actor.
This audio was a lot of fun to listen to. I always enjoy actors and tv personalities that narrate their own audio books. It only seems right that they should be telling their story. Aasif narrates with a high energy and fast talking manner that you think he is hopped up on coffee (or perhaps that brownie he mentions along the way…).
Honesty, I did not know much about Aasif going into the read, but after listening to this book I have a whole new appreciation for the talent of this man who never stopped doing what he loved and made his way to who he is today.
Highly enjoyable! Fans of Aasif are not going to want to miss out on this up close and personal look of his life.

I don’t know who he is but I think the book sounds fun!
I didn’t either Kathy. I am not a Daily Show viewer, and have not seen many movies or tv he has been in. After listening to this one though, I will be looking for him. He is hilarious.
He’s one of my favorites from The Daily Show. I didn’t realize that he had a book out, or that he was in Die Hard with a Vengeance (or anything else other than The Daily Show really). I will definitely have to track this one down.
Oh good Alyce! He is really funny – you will love his life story!
