From the Back Cover:

A raw, poignant, and often hilarious look inside the troubled life and mind of an American comic icon.

From his harrowing childhood filled with abuse to a lifetime of addiction and psychiatric hospitalizations, to the peak of success as the longest-tenured cast member of Saturday Night Live, Darrell Hammond delves into the darkest corners of his life, on both sides of the camera, with honesty and a fierce comic wit. Beneath his hilarious dead-on impressions of Bill Clinton and others, Hammond suffered from largely undiagnosed mental anguish that resulted in horrifying flashbacks, a stint in a Bahamian jail, and ultimately a dark night in a Harlem crack house. He fought to learn the truth about his past for three decades, determined finally to do right by his young daughter and to set the record straight about falling so low while achieving such heights.
