Year 14, Book 46

46. Comedy Sex God by Pete Holmes

Comedy Sex God is part memoir, part spiritual quest written by stand-up comic Pete Holmes. He talks about his childhood growing up as a devoted evangelical Christian, which left him with a lot of emotional baggage and issues with sex. After a divorce from the woman he married when he was 22 essentially so they could have sex after she cheated on him, he lost his faith. Much of the rest of the book is about his examination of spirituality and his search to find the meaning in life he felt missing after he denounced Christianity. It’s definitely not your typical comedian/actor’s memoir. I appreciated his explorations and candidness about things that people, especially in his arena don’t particularly talk about. I give it an 8 out of 10.
