Have you ever read a poorly written novel and thought to yourself, who publishes this crap? Or come across a self-help claiming to cure depression by clenching your anus? Perhaps you flipped through Jennifer Love Hewitt’s latest book of dating tips that says “a spray tan is a must!” These books and writings seem too bizarre to be made up. Well, that’s what SAY WHA?! is all about.
At Say Wha?! engaging and charismatic performers put their comedic spin on some of the most cringe-worthy, embarrassing and painfully earnest writing in print; the result is hilarity.
Please note Justin Bieber’s memoir was just released. These are my favorite bits so far:
“I was on a date with a girl, and I was like, ‘Girl, do you want a soda?’ And she was like, ‘Yeah, a Sprite!’ And I was like, ‘Girl, you must be punking me because Sprite is mad gross!’ And she was like, ‘I was punking you!’ So yeah, I’d say that date went pretty well.”
“Kanye West’s Twitter is my favorite book, but if we’re not counting Twitter feeds, I guess I’d have to say that my RSS feed of Kanye West’s Twitter is my favorite book.”
