9780142180266: The Guy Under the Sheets: The Unauthorized Autobiography

"This hugely entertaining pack of lies reads like a Woody Allen essay from the New Yorker."David Pitt, Booklist

Is Chris Elliott a highly successful and beloved comedian—or a slightly dim-witted notalent from a celebrity family who managed to convince a generation of disillusioned youth that he was funny? From a ghastly childhood on the posh Upper East Side to his first job entertaining mobsters with his Judy Garland impersonation, The Guy Under the Sheets is packed with countless episodes from the life of a mediocre artist who somehow faked his way to the top—of semi-moderate fame and fortune. Woven throughout the fictional fun in Elliott's memoir are wonderful real-life anecdotes that will delight many new readers and loyal fans alike.

"The arc of [Elliott's] career remains unique and inspiring . . . that he blazed a trail for Arrested Development and Community and all the other freaky, convention-flouting TV comedies."—Grantland

About the Author:

Chris Elliott is a comedian and the author of several books, including The Shroud of the Thwacker. He currently stars in Adult Swim’s Eagleheart and has a recurring role on How I Met Your Mother.

From Booklist:

Elliott, the comedian, actor, and writer, here blows the lid off one of the great untold Hollywood stories: the true life of Chris Elliott. The son of film legend Bette Davis and noted mustachioed actor Sam Elliott, Chris got his first big break on Late Night with David Letterman, where he dazzled audiences with his many running characters, including a Marlon Brando parody that had its genesis in Elliott’s traumatizing encounter with the Oscar-winning actor on his French Polynesian island. Torrid affairs with Shelley Winters and Lee Radziwill, among other women, scarred Elliott emotionally and psychologically, but he didn’t let that stop him from turning out classic film and television works like Cabin Boy and Get a Life. Sadly, Elliott’s own life was cut short by his untimely death at the hands of Dr. Ruth Westheimer, another spurned lover. This hugely entertaining pack of lies reads like a Woody Allen essay from the New Yorker, but, buried among the silliness, there is a nugget or two of legitimate autobiography. Wildly weird and hugely entertaining. --David Pitt
