Summary

It’s rare that an actor embodies even one memorable character over the arc of a career. Jeffrey Tambor has managed to create three, beginning with Hank “Hey Now!” Kingsley on The Larry Sanders Show, the series created by Garry Shandling, Jeffrey’s first mentor in television. He went on to find two more show creators, Mitch Hurwitz of Arrested Development and Jill Soloway of Transparent, who shared a love of actors and taught him a lot about acting along the way.

Are You Anybody? is Tambor’s chance to discuss his creative process and immense accomplishments from a life lived onscreen. Drawing from his formative childhood years, in which he describes himself as a fat Hungarian-Jewish kid with a lisp and a depressive father to how he drew inspiration from his life to create these characters, Tambor’s memoir is funny, insightful, and uplifting, touching on comedy and the enduring chutzpah required to make it through life.

Review Quotes

“In the first few minutes of his own audiobook, actor Jeffrey Tambor lets listeners know of his ambivalence about narrating his own memoir…Never fear: Tambor is an actor’s actor…Throughout his audiobook, Tambor maps his journey with a welcoming, engaging, and always entertaining voice. He’s a seasoned pro telling stories of his career, but he remains self-effacing throughout.”

Michael Connelly, # 1 New York Times bestselling author
