Product description


"I'd Like to Play Alone, Please is a stereotypically masculine tour de force with farts, football and a third thing starting with "f" that's not fit to print, occasionally interrupted by completely disarming, heartfelt sentiments. Then followed by more poop jokes...The book is funny, surprising and even sweet at times."--Associated Press

"Stand-up comedian Tom Segura built his career making laugh-out-loud funny observations live, onstage and for his multiple podcasts. With the fittingly titled I
'd Like To Play Alone, Please--so named for Segura's son's brutally pointed first sentence--the witty, relatable, exhausted curmudgeon welcomes audiences into an equally entertaining but more intimate romp."--AV Club

"One of the funniest men I know has written an extremely funny book of stories that he's never told on stage. There's lots to learn too, like how close Tom came to playing in the NFL (not very); or why sitting next to Mike Tyson on a plane is the most dangerous and exciting thing in world; or how Tom continues to be one of the greatest storytellers on the planet."--
Ali Wong

"Segura's candor is undeniably entertaining. Fans will find this a riot."--
Publishers Weekly

"Tom Segura is a great guy, an amazing friend, and a limitless well of hilarious stories. He also has an appreciation for the absurdity of life that borders on mental illness. This book is a window into his beautifully f*cked-up mind, where some of the dumbest people and the ridiculous things they do take center stage, all masterfully animated by one of the best stand-up comics on earth. He's my favorite kind of comic because his take on life is legitimately therapeutic. His enthusiasm for stupid sh*t is so contagious that it actually changes your mood and convinces you to join in on his way of seeing it. I love him to death, and his book is f*cking awesome."--
Joe Rogan

"Tom Segura delivers a treatise that is as timely as it is thought provoking and...actually, he did something better...a book that's ridiculously funny!!!! If you want to live inside the mind of one of the best comics out there, here's your chance. I hear the audio version is for shit, though..."--
Jon Stewart

Book Description

From Tom Segura, the massively successful stand-up comedian and co-host of chart-topping podcasts "2 Bears 1 Cave" and "Your Mom's House," hilarious real-life stories of parenting, celebrity encounters, youthful mistakes, misanthropy, and so much more.
