Fans will be grateful that Kal Penn narrates his own memoir, You Can’t Be Serious, because he brings his signature comedy to every moment. Host Jo Reed talks with AudioFile’s Michele Cobb about enjoying Penn’s story, his relaxed narration, and her delight in getting to speak with him in preparation for hosting this year’s Audie Awards. He narrates his memoir with a comfortable style as he switches between stories of growing up a child of immigrants and behind-the-scenes moments on Hollywood sets. Penn has created a unique, honest performance for an enjoyable and informative listen.
