3. Me Speak Pretty One Day

There's a passage in there about making some Greek food. Don't remember, it might have been Baklava. OMG, on the floor, rolling about funny. Guaranteed.

5. I like "Holidays on Ice" the best.

It's one of his first collections of essays and includes the "Santaland Diaries" which is laugh-out-loud funny. Second, IMO, is "Me Talk Pretty One Day".

7. I saw him in person at the Paramount in Denver a few years ago.

He is just as witty in person. I also took my sons to see the "Santaland Diaries" a few Christmases ago. We really enjoyed it. It's a fun and different holiday one-man (or one elf) play.
