A New York Times bestseller

A candid, compulsively readable, hilarious, and heartbreaking memoir of resilience and redemption by comedic genius Molly Shannon

At age four, Molly Shannon's world was shattered when she lost her mother, baby sister, and cousin in a car accident with her father at the wheel. Held together by her tender and complicated relationship with her grieving father, Molly was raised in a permissive household where her gift for improvising and role-playing blossomed alongside the fearlessness that would lead her to become a celebrated actress.

From there, Molly ventured into the wider world of New York and Los Angeles show business, where she created her own opportunities and developed her daring and empathetic comedy. Filled with behind-the-scenes stories involving everyone from Whitney Houston to Adam Sandler to Monica Lewinsky, many told for the first time here, Hello, Molly! spans Molly'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.

Witty, winning, and told with tremendous energy and heart, Hello, Molly!, written with Sean Wilsey, sheds new and revelatory light on the life and work of one of our most talented and free-spirited performers.… (mer)

Listen to Molly read her memoir. Her voice conveys her emotions so clearly from delight to heartache. And what a fascinating and vivid life!

Many memories come across as vignettes that lacked grounding or a through line, but this was a minor distraction. Delightful title for a summer reading lineup. ( )

There is a lot to love about Molly Shannon's memoir. She has had a life full of tragedy and difficulties but really persevered in spite of all that. She is funny and tells great stories. She definitely is a little skewed from the mainstream in her thinking sometimes, but I was mostly charmed and inspired by her. ( )

Shannon shows herself to be a good Irish Catholic girl with a charming Irish Catholic alcoholic father. She possesses 3 qualities I'll never have - optimism, extroversion, and the ability to forgive. I've never really forgiven the charming alcoholics in my family yet she, who has much more to forgive, adores her father. She's also driven and competent like Heather Gay (who wrote Bad Mormon) but not so driven financially. You can believe she loves her family. You can believe she lives a real life, not a plastic one ( )

I listened to the audiobook. It's always fun to hear a celebrity read their own memoir. Honestly, though, the writing wasn't great and Molly came off sounding kind-of inauthentic. Everything comes off as a performance. I can't put my finger on exactly why. ( )

I have been a fan of Molly Shannon from the first time I saw her on SNL. I knew she was going to be something, and boy was I right. She is one of those comedians that you can tell truly enjoys her job, her talent evident from the get-go.

The tragedy that Molly has endured in her relatively short life is heartbreaking, but her take on her loss is refreshing. It’s obvious she is one of those people that sees the sunny side of life, and for me that is so refreshing! I too tend to see the glass half full, so it was nice to find a kindred spirit in someone that I have admired for a long time.

To say that I enjoyed this book is an understatement, especially listening to the audiobook, hearing Molly tell the story in her own unique and personable voice. It’s obvious she is a natural-born performer, and I loved every moment, especially as she reminisced about her time at SNL, and all the memorable characters that came from her experience there.

If I didn’t love Molly Shannon before I absolutely adore and respect her even more now! This is hands down a must-read for me and if you can listen to the audiobook, I highly recommend, as it makes the Molly’s story all the sweeter. ( )
