Authors: Molly Shannon and Sean Wilsey
This is a candid, compulsively readable, hilarious, and heartbreaking memoir of resilience and redemption.
Witty, winning, and told with tremendous energy and heart, Hello, Molly! sheds new and revelatory light on the life and work of one of our most talented and free-spirited performers.
Filled with behind-the-scenes stories involving everyone from Whitney Houston to Adam Sandler to Monica Lewinski, many told for the first time here, Hello, Molly! spans Molly Shannon’s time on Saturday Night Live — where she starred alongside Will Ferrell, Adam Sandler, Cheri Oteri, Tracy Morgan, and Jimmy Fallon, among many others.
At the same time, it explores with humor and candor her struggle to come to terms with the legacy of her father, a man who both fostered her gifts and drive and was left with the impossible task of raising his kids alone after the loss of her mother.
“Saturday Night Live’s Molly Shannon is famous for her funny characters, sketches and slapstick comedy. But this Cincinatti-born actress and comedian has written an incredibly funny, inspiring memoir,” said a review on goodreads.com.
