Summary
"For many years, television comedy was an exclusive all boys' club--until a brilliant comedian named Carol Leifer came along, blazing a trail for funny women everywhere. From Late Night with David Letterman and Saturday Night Live to Seinfeld, The Ellen Show, and Modern Family, Carol has written for and/or performed on some of the best TV comedies of all time. This hilarious collection of essays charts her extraordinary three-decade journey through show business, illuminating her many triumphs and some missteps along the way--and offering valuable lessons for women and men in any profession. Part memoir, part guide to life, and all incredibly funny, How to Succeed in Business without Really Crying offers tips and tricks for getting ahead, finding your way, and opening locked doors--even if you have to use a sledgehammer" --

How to handle yourself during the frenzied scramble for gainful employment. And the hammy goes to... ; My boss was a dick, even when you got to know him ; Desperately seeking soupy ; So I stole soda from Aaron Spelling ; Spielberg wasn't available ; The rule of ten ; Bad vibrations ; I'm Harry Dean Stanton's mommy -- How to maintain your sanity while stubbornly advancing an ever-arduous career. The singer, then the ventriloquist, then the chick ; Don't develop a drinking problem ; Who else is a proctologist gonna talk to? ; Heckled by Stephen Hawking ; SNL: hired by a U.S. senator, done in by politics ; Frank Sinatra called me big ; The show about nothing taught me something ; Keep your sour cream off the counter ; Again with the failure? ; Respect your yodas -- How to keep your footing when you finally get a leg up to the top of the heap. Thank you, stand-up comedy! I'll be here every week ; Walter White's work ethic ; There's no use kvetching over yesterday's pickles ; The fish stinks from the head down ; In closing: my top ten personal thoughts on success
