She Memes Well (MP3 CD)
Features an Audible Exclusive: The Making of Abbott Elementary.
"In She Memes Well, Quinta gives more than a peek behind the curtain. She invites us in, lets us poke around and offers a balm for our aching souls. She moves beyond the jokes into something much deeper, something we may not recognize we need. She is the friend, sister, lover, cool co-worker we all wished we had." (Gabrielle Union, actress and New York Times best-selling author of We're Going to Need More Wine)
From comedian Quinta Brunson (creator and star of Abbott Elementary) comes a deeply personal and funny collection of essays about trying to make it when you're struggling, the importance of staying true to your roots, and how she's redefined humor online. This special Audible edition includes never-before-heard details about the making of Abbott Elementary, the cast, the writers' room, and how the show inadvertently created hundreds of new roles for young Black actors.
Quinta Brunson is a master at breaking the internet. Before having any traditional background in media, her humorous videos were the first to go viral on Instagram's platform. From there, Brunson's wryly observant POV helped cement her status in the comedy world at large, with roles on HBO, Netflix, ABC, Adult Swim, BuzzFeed, the CW, and Comedy Central. Now, Brunson is bringing her comedic chops to the page in She Memes Well, an earnest, laugh-out-loud collection about this unusual road to notoriety.
In her debut essay collection, Quinta applies her trademark humor and heart to discuss what it was like to go from a girl who loved the World Wide Web to a girl whose face launched a thousand memes. With anecdotes that range from the ridiculous--like the time she decided to go clubbing wearing an outfit she describes as "Gary Coleman meets metrosexual pirate"--to more heartfelt material about her struggles with depression, Quinta's voice is entirely authentic and eminently enjoyable. With its intimate tone and hilarious moments, She Memes Well will make you feel as if you're sitting down with your chillest, funniest friend.
