Tina Fey's Bossypants is comedy gold. Before she starred in 30 Rock, Mean Girls or Saturday Night Live, Tina Fey was just a little girl with a dream. Here Tina reveals how she made it from her early days as a "vicious nerd" to getting the job on Saturday Night Live and beyond.

Most importantly, she proves that you're no one until someone calls you bossy.

This compelling, inspiring and funny coming-of-age story of Trevor Noah is set during the apartheid and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed. While you may know Trevor as the man who gives the world their nightly dose of satire, here he gives listeners a deeply personal, heartfelt and humorous look at the world that shaped him.

Best Foot Forward

In his audiobook, Adam Hills describes his early years in the Australian comedy scene and how he grew up being the shy kid with a prosthetic foot. While other teens snuck off to meet girls and drink, Adam snuck off to see a young Jim Carrey perform. His love of comedy and legends such as Rodney Rude, Vince Sorrenti and Robin Williams eventually led to Adam's first stand-up performance on his 19th birthday.

Adam recounts stories from his life in a charming and witty memoir about following your heart, being positive and how the things that make you different also make you unique.

Audible will also be releasing the Melbourne international Comedy Festival on July 6, so stay tuned!
