  1. I m familiar with Harris Wittels from the Comedy Bang Bang podcast, so I know how funny he is, but I wasn t sure how he could talk about fake ly modest tweets for a whole book But he did And it s very funny, perfect for a quiet night or long a plane trip You know, like when you re flying home first class from the Oscars, and you end up sitting next to Beyonce, and she recognizes you weird cantbelievethisismylife


  2. While I congratulate Harris Wittels on popularizing the term humblebrag and making it a thing to be observed and mocked because so many of us do use them, it seems a little like even he misses the point Don t get the audiobook because him reading and commenting on hundreds of tweets is not so great a pop culture mockery as you might imagine Some of the tweets responded to and the responses are pretty funny, but many are off base and there s a whole chapter that seems to miss the point His chapte [...]


  3. It s so weird and awesome I was able to listen to Harris s book in just a weekend This has got to be a record since I m so dumb or whatever humblebrag But seriously, this is literally just Harris reading tweets and making funny comments about them Sometimes the comments are hilarious comedy gold and sometimes just dumb and lazy Nevertheless, it was very entertaining Harris, you were the friend I never knew RIP harrisanewone



  4. So, Harris Wittels wrote a book, and it s not a Deep Thoughts style Foam Corner collection Because that would be the proverbial shit That would be like getting sprung off that Molly while Harry Hood played over the speakers at my favorite restaurant, Tapas the Mornin to Jah Instead, this collection of Humblebrags just doesn t have enough Wittels Still pretty fun, though.


  5. 3.5 stars Not amazing, but entertaining It s basically just him reading tweets and then making snarky comments about them It works I d listen if you re considering it, it might be too tedious to read.



  6. if God is real and we have the same one, and a big priority for him is making sure you sell out a show at a college basketball arena, then I want out The only problem I ve really ever had with immigrants is that sometimes they come over here and tell jokes that sounds suspiciously similar to our jokes, and don t admit it, even when pressed on the issue on Marc Maron s podcast In case I wasn t being specific enough, I am talking solely about Carlos Mencia Heh Wittels aint lying in that second one [...]


  7. Good concept, poor execution This book was also five times too long The only reason I finished it was because my power was out and I was stuck under the covers, hugging my dog and resigning myself to a frigid death.


  8. I don t know maybe he was mad about not having enough followers or RT s on twitter, but his writing felt bitter there were some moments when he was pretty good 3 pages maybe but other times he just sounded like he was rejected from the prom 10 different times and took it out on everybody on twitter.


  9. I thought this book was okay I read the physical book and could hear Harris voice in my head, but after reading a few other reviews, I think I ll have to checkout the audio book to hear his actual voice I love Harris Wittels in his appearances on the Comedy Bang Bang podcast that is where he really shines.





  10. I only became familiar with Harris Wittel s after hearing the sad news about his death last year a death that really hit close to home for me, our sharing the same unusual first name notwithstanding but I had watched and enjoyed some Parks and Recreation and was recommend his work by my girlfriend as well After we watched Aziz Ansari s masterful Master of None, another work using Wittel s writing talents, I definitely wanted to read up a little on his oeuvre Humblebragging, as defined by Wittel [...]


  11. This is a really fun easy read The concept is hilarious and fresh Humble brags are a type of statement that allows the perpetrator to boast without shame or guilt because they have included something faux humble and often self deprecating Most of the book is made up of statements made by celebrities and people that think they are celebrities on twitter No one is safe from being called out on their humblebrags Harris Wittels calls out everyone from Barak Obama to Taylor Swift, even Oprah has a pa [...]


  12. RIP Harris Wittels I listened to this on Audible, narrated by Wittels It s nice to listen to him read his own work since he passed and we ll no longer be able to enjoy any new comedy from him The format of this book is simple Each chapter is a loose collection of tweets by celebs and regular people alike thematically linked by the subject matter of their humblebrags, followed by a witty retort from Wittels It runs a bit long for the format that it is, but if you break it up into sections instead [...]


  13. I am a huge fan of Parks and Recreationbut this book needed a lot of editing In most of the book he assumes you know who all the famous people are that he mentions I did not Some parts are quite witty, and I enjoyed the Totes McGotes chapter especially because he makes clear Totes was fine with being in the book I think humor that laughs at people possibly without consent is too uncomfortable for me I think Leslie from Parks needs to help him with sexism Finally I feel terrible giving it two sta [...]


  14. Harris Wittels is a funny guy That s not a loaded statement or anything other than an opinion In interviews, he comes off as a little shy, maybe even a tad uncomfortable, and yet I wonder if it s not just for show He is known to whip out his dick in the writer s rooms of the various television show s he works on, as referenced in Sarah Silverman s The Bedwetter But he is a comedy writer, not a performer, and behind his Twitter account, he becomes like so many other anonymous internet voices, let [...]


  15. Funny concept, not that well executed There are a few funny comebacks and points that he makes but they get ruined by Harris inability to grasp the understanding of sexual harassment, gratitude, and people actually getting hurt Not to mention his fascination with a complete jackass named Totes Mcgotes on twitter who calls women pets Classy I am glad I found this book at the Dollar Tree It could have been great, I mean really funny but it just got lost in too many titles, changes of pace and chap [...]


  16. I originally put off the book because although it seemed like an easy read, I didn t know if I wanted to waste my time on it Only after I started, I found myself reading further not for the humblebrags them self but for the snarky responses he added after each individual tweet I will say not all were funny but every now and then, you would come across a comment and laugh I also liked that not all the tweets were from famous celebrities and that he included a few non celebrities All in all the bo [...]


  17. I always feel like a jerk when I rate something this low, I do And maybe it s not fair on this one, since I m biased against social networking anyway, but I really thought it might have some useful thing to say about it, through humor All it did was make me happy to have deleted my Facebook account, and glad that I never got the point of Twitter So I ve got that going for me I m sorry, Mr Wittels I probably shouldn t have picked up your book, but I did, and it made me feel hostile I do enjoy you [...]


  18. this was a fun, fast, snarky read that is easy to pick up and put down at any point going through it all at once could be pretty one note reptetitive, but harris wittels really nailed an intrinsic part of the human personality when he coined humblebrag it s light hearted though, when it feels like it could have gotten mean and wittels is quick to note the seriously offensive ones from the forgivable ones we all humblebrag but we should try to maybe a little but less.


  19. Rating it for what it is, calling out those people we all know Fun to listen to in spurts While not always appropriate, it was mostly fun to listen to with teenage boys I even found a good message at times when he d call out girls who complain about being fat at size 2, guys who think they re all that and a bag of chips when they re just jerks, etc And the boys liked it when they knew the actors or singer.


  20. I won this through the first reads program This is funnier than some other tweet based books I ve read The snarky author comments on the original tweets are good and make the book Over all it s better to read small bits at a time, rather than all at once, even though it s a short book Sometimes it might have been better to have them in a random order rather than grouped into chapters Some of the chapters seemed to be the same joke over and over.


  21. Humblebrag is hilarious Even better than the self aggrandizing tweets is Wittels clever rejoinders, they are what make the book a truly funny, laugh out loud read In the spirit of the book, I shall compose my own humblebrag I wish I didn t read so quickly so that I could enjoy books like Humblebrag for longer awkward


  22. Clever concept poor execution The idea is the humblebrag is funny, but the examples were not great, and the commentary varied from boring and repetitive to downright clueless and mean Parts were sexist and ignorant There were a few funny points, so it wasn t a complete waste of time, but it was close.


  23. The non celebrity tweets are a lot funnier than celebrity tweets apparently celebrities saying they met with other celebrities or won an award is hilarious humblebragging , but the book is 90% celebrity tweets If the entire book was like the Totes McGotes chapter, it d be great As it is, it s pretty much acting like celebrities talking about their lives is inherently hilarious.


  24. Apparently the idea that women might complain about people hitting on them all the time means that they re not taking compliments and should shut up Because harassment isn t a thing There were some other pretty tasteless jokes in this and the whole thing got really repetitive as it was pretty much the same comeback per chapter.


  25. Though its day has passed as a Twitter phenomenon, humblebrag is no less relevant as a descriptor for the vapidity of 99% of social media chatter Wittels book is worth a read he s so honest, so hilarious, so incisive Succinct brilliance RIP, man You were a funny dude.
