Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 201 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. From his harrowing childhood filled with physical and emotional abuse at the hands of his parents to a lifetime of alcoholism and self-mutilation, psychiatric hospitalizations and misdiagnoses to the peak of fame and success as the longest-tenured cast member of Saturday Night Live , Darryl Hammond delves into the darkest corners of his life both in front of and behind the camera with brutal honesty and a fierce comic wit. On the back of his hilarious dead-on impressions of Bill Clinton, Dick Cheney, Chris Matthews, and a hundred other prominent figures, Hammond was invited to the inner sanctums of the country s political leaders, including three presidents, all the while suffering debilitating and largely undiagnosed anguish that resulted in horrifying flashbacks, shocking benders, a hair-raising stint in a Bahamian jail, and ultimately a long, dark night in a Harlem crack house. His long fight for sobriety, filled with heartbreaking relapses, was propelled by a desire to do right by his young daughter and to set the record straight about how he fell so low while achieving such heights. Throughout, Hammond dishes on fellow cast members and celebrity guest hosts, and lays bare the real inner workings of an iconic television show. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780062064561
