A Very Punchable Face

A Very Punchable Face Details

From growing up in a family of firefighters on Staten Island to commuting three hours a day to high school and "seeing the sights" (like watching a Russian woman throw a stroller off the back of a ferry), to attending Harvard while Facebook was created, Jost shares how he has navigated the world like a slightly smarter Forrest Gump.

For every accomplishment (hosting the Emmys), there is a setback (hosting the Emmys). And for every absurd moment (watching paramedics give CPR to a raccoon), there is an honest, emotional one (recounting his mother's experience on the scene of the Twin Towers' collapse on 9/11).

  • Andrea Pole

    A Very Punchable Face by Colin Jost is a funny, irreverent, and self-deprecating memoir that is every bit as joyful and enlightening as you would hope it to be. I am always wary of reading a memoir pe...

    A Very Punchable Face is by far and away, totally different from my normal day to day reads. I am a romance reader who loves nothing more than a happy ending. So, for me to pick up a Non-Fiction book ...

    4.5 starsAll I knew about Colin was that he was on Saturday Night Live on Weekend Update and he was dating Scarlett Johansen. Still, it turns out there is much more to Harvard educated Jost as he was ...
