"Quick-witted, clear-spoken and possessed of an air of amiably ironic poise....Sunny subversiveness....(She) had this critic in tears from laughing so hard". -- The New York Times

"Let's get one thing straight. I'm not. And yes, my brother is Bill Clinton. But not the Bill Clinton. These two guys are very different. For one thing, whenever I hear President Bill speak -- on gays in the military, health-care reform -- I hear that sound trucks make when they're backing up. Now I've written a book. That's all I'm going to say because I don't want to spoil it for you. That's a job for Jesse Helms".

I remember reading some of this while sitting at the gate in an airport. I had to put it down because I was laughing so hard I had tears rolling down my face. Read full review

About the author (1998)

A self-described fumerist (feminist/humorist), Kate Clinton taught English for eight years before a writing workshop and improvisational class convinced her that her political views deserved a public hearing. She quit teaching, took a job as a window washer, and started her professional stand-up career in 1981, using politics, Catholicism, and her lesbianism as basic themes. She performs one-woman shows across the country and writes columns for the Progressive and the Advocate. She has appeared on Arsenio Hall, Good Morning America, Nightline, CNN, C-Span, and many other places. Although she has four comedy albums to her credit, Don't Get Me Started is her first book.
