You didn’t think this blog was going to be ALL serious, did you?!

I love a good laugh, and Seth Rogan delivered in “Yearbook.”

I decided to read this book during a recent staycation, just to keep the mood light and fun. 

Let’s just get this out of the way now…Seth Rogen is hilarious!

There, I said it. 

In “Yearbook,” we get to peak into Seth’s life over the past 20 years or so. 

He starts at the beginning with his very first experiences doing standup comedy. His parents and grandparents were very supportive of his aspirations and were very funny themselves. 

They helped shape his first jokes, literally and figuratively. 

Then, we get a look at his teenage years and school life. He grew up in Canada and had some pretty interesting friends. They all (Seth and his friends) were preoccupied with obtaining weed. Of course, they were interested in other things, like getting girlfriends, but you get the idea. There was one incident when Seth and his friend went to a nude beach to buy weed. The guy selling the weed, obviously nude, had a fanny pack on but needed more “shelf space.” That’s all I can say about that. 

Seth’s adult years have been golden. One of the funniest stories in the book is about his trip to Europe. He met up with one of his buddies and they basically “backpacked” it…staying at hostels and whatnot. Then…they got some very potent…mushrooms…and tried to have lunch at a nearby park. The mushrooms hit while they were at a grocery store trying to get food. Long story short, Seth’s friend ended up trying to hide from everyone by lying face down in the grass at the park. Seth purged on a sidewalk, with lots of witnesses. Good trip? Bad trip? I don’t know, but hilarious all the same. 

Seth also describes several experiences with a few celebrities. There were the normal “Kanye West showing up at your door asking to play basketball” kind of experiences. And then there were the very odd but very amusing Nic Cage and George Lucas kind of experiences. Anyone got a spaceship?

And no good “memoir” would be complete without a “Shart” story. If you don’t know what that is, look it up. 

“Yearbook” is full of stories and anecdotes that had me laughing my a** off, even now as I reminisce. Huge thanks to Mr. Rogen, for the laughter and entertainment!

Thanks for checking out the blog today!

  1. This sounds like a funny read. I always loved Seth’s humor and most of his earlier films so I feel like I understand the book just off of your review. Canadians understand other Canadians 🙂
