Leah Remini — Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology Random House Audio / Via audible.com You know her as Kevin James' wife on King of Queens, but what you may not know is that Remini was indoctrinated into the Church of Scientology at a young age. Listen as she explains how public exile from the controversial church forced her to be tragically disconnected with members of her own family. 2. Sarah Silverman — The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption, and Pee HarperAudio / Via audible.com No one is surprised that the title of Sarah Silverman's memoir references bodily fluids. But what IS inspiring perhaps is the emotional poignancy the veteran comedian effortlessly weaves into the narrative of her life...along with the bawdy jokes of course. 3. Amy Poehler — Yes Please HarperAudio / Via audible.com Featuring guest appearances from Carol Burnett, Seth Meyers, Michael Schur, Patrick Stewart, and Kathleen Turner, listening to the memoir of the SNL and Parks and Rec star is almost like listening to a podcast with a celebrity-stacked lineup! 4. Patton Oswalt — Zombie Spaceship Wasteland Simon & Schuster Audio / Via audible.com Weirdly enough, Oswalt also got his start on King of Queens, though he is probably best known as the voice of the rat from Ratatouille and through being...only one of the smartest and most distinct stand-up voices of the last three decades. His memoir is a fascinating examination of his lifelong, manic obsession with pop culture. 5. Andre Agassi — Open: An Autobiography Random House Audio / Via audible.com Even if you don't follow tennis, the journey of going from a ninth-grade dropout to a tennis superstar (and 1980s icon) is an inspiring story for anyone who has ever dreamed of greatness. 6. Tina Fey — Bossypants Hachette Audio / Via audible.com If you think you know the life of Tina Fey, you may be confusing her for Liz Lemon, her 30 Rock alter ego. Well...to be honest, real and fictitious are pretty similar, but Bossypants is nonetheless a hilarious deep dive into one of the world's best comedy minds. 7. Holly Madison — Down the Rabbit Hole HarperAudio / Via audible.com The life of a Playboy Bunny is not just what you see in the magazines. Holly Madison was just 21 years old when she descended into a famously luxurious pit of drugs and abuse, but thankfully she took charge of her life — and wrote a fascinating memoir about her time as one of Hugh Hefner's favorite girls. 8. Norm Macdonald — Based on a True Story Random House Audio / Via audible.com Mark Twain once said, "Truth is stranger than fiction," but obviously Mark hasn't read Norm Macdonald's new book yet. The legendary comedian spins quite a yarn in this "memoir," and, although not all of it may be real, it's 100% Norm and that's alright with us. 9. Carrie Brownstein — Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl: A Memoir Penguin Audio / Via audible.com Before Brownstein was a making quirky sketches with Fred Armisen on Portlandia, she was a music icon as the lead guitarist in a kick-ass punk band called Sleator-Kinney. Hear in her own words how growing up in the Pacific Northwest influenced both her music and her comedy. 10. Misty Copeland — Life in Motion: An Unlikely Ballerina Tanter Audio / Via audible.com When Misty Copeland found the art of ballerina, she was a scrawny 13-year-old living in a hotel room with her mother and five siblings. Years later, she would develop into the only African-American soloist for the American Ballet Theatre. 11. Bruce Campbell — If Chins Could Kill Campbell Entertainment Inc. / Via audible.com You may be racking your brain trying to remember who Bruce Campbell is...and that's exactly the point. This memoir gives us a rare glimpse of what it's like to be that sort of B-list actor who randomly pops up in things, making viewers go, "Wait I've seen that guy before...but I don't remember where!" 12. Patti Smith — Just Kids HarperAudio / Via audible.com A retrospective on the life of the "punk-rock laureate" herself would make a worthy enough memoir, but Smith decides instead to focus on her two-decade-old relationship with photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, who tragically died of AIDS at the age of 42.
