Diary of a JackWagon by Tim Hawkins with John Driver

My husband and I have been fans of Tim Hawkins for quite some time. He first introduced me to Tim's comedy when we were dating, and at first I thought Tim was a little weird, but truth be told, I loved what he had to say. Since then, my husband and I have been to two concerts to see Tim perform, and our daughters have watched numerous video clips of his. We love Tim because he is a wholesome yet hilarious comedian. There's nothing raunchy here, and his jokes are good clean fun. Our family thoroughly enjoys a little comedy sketch from Tim Hawkins.

Now as for the book, there were a few references to some bits of his we have seen live or on his dvds, but a majority of the book was a new sketch of his that we had not heard before. I don't think the old sketches are necessarily a bad thing considering this is Tim's first book. He references a lot of his songs he has written. If you are not familiar with his songs, you need to go look them up on youtube right now. Seriously, I'll wait....

Tim shares the infamous yoga pants song that my 3 year old so affectionately sings throughout shopping trips. He also shares lyrics to the Homeschool family which is a parody of the song "The Adam's Family."

I found myself laughing out loud to much of this book. Tim shares his life with his readers. Life as a homeschooling dad, his struggles of living with a wife he will never deserve, and most importantly, his relationship with Jesus Christ. Tim makes no jokes about who he lives for, and I respect him so much for that. This is a book I will come back to time and time again for a good laugh. I rate this book as 5 stars.
