Dirty Jokes and Beer
by: Drew Carey

This collection of dirty jokes, short fiction, and autobiographical tidbits will please some readers and offend others. Carey, a stand-up comic and star of his own TV show, writes mostly about sex, drinking, gambling, football, and television. One of his favorite topics seems to be his “big ~censored~” jokes. Four-letter words predominate, giving the book a definite adolescent, male tone. Carey points out that the raunchier his material, the more popular he became, seeming almost surprised at the public’s reaction. To his credit, he also includes a sampling of the negative reviews and letters he has received. The short stories are the most interesting. Carey reads with the familiarity and conviction of one reading his own work..

Dirty Jokes and Beer, Stories of the Unrefined is a 1997 book written by Drew Carey. The book was mentioned briefly in an episode of the US version of the improv comedy TV series Whose Line is it Anyway?, a show which Drew himself hosted from 1998 to 2003. The book is divided into three sections, which are referred to in the title. All of the chapters within the first two sections (save for 101 Big-Dick Jokes, which would be redundant) are preceded by a dirty joke Carey has heard over the years. He also delves into his personal life, revealing that he was sexually abused as a child, and attempted suicide in the past. Aside from the funny bits and insights, the book is rife with bad language and vulgarity. This is not just the jokes and the insights. It is also in how he talks about his real life. He does say in the book that he doesn\’t care what people think about what he does. Although I have admired this attitude; in this book I found the flip side. Beer is Drew\’s more serious autobiography with information on how his sitcom ran (interesting details), his run ins with the tabloids (funny), his childhood and some thoughts on how he ended up the person he is. The book is structured so you get to read about the show, his personal biography, his jokes, and his short stories. Overall, I found it all to be great. If you\’re not a fan of his, you probably won\’t like it. If you\’re a casual fan, you probably won\’t like it.

Overview
Drew Carey scripted and starred in his own cable special for years before hooking up with Bruce Helford and creating The Drew Carey Show. He is also the host of his own show, Whose Line Is It Anyway? We all know Drew Carey from his award-winning stand-up career and his hit television show, but do we really know Drew Carey, the person? Now, meet the true Drew, in his book, the bawdy, irreverent, and hilarious Dirty Jokes and Beer, and find out about all the many sides of the misunderstood Hollywood star.

Comedian Drew Carey, star of the eponymous TV show, provides neither a full-scale memoir nor a catalogue of stand-up shtick in Dirty Jokes and Beer: Stories of the Unrefined. Rather, as the title suggests, his book mixes anecdotes, jokes and commentary on TV and fame, all in his cheerily vulgar fashion. The last third of the book is Carey’s “pride and joy,” “dark” short stories in faux autobiographical style: in one, “Drew” meets a beautiful woman who turns out to be a transvestite.
