Darrell Hammond's upcoming memoir, God, If You're Not Up There, I'm F*cked, has been described as Tina Fey's Bossypants meets David Carr's The Night of the Gun. It is a raw look inside the troubled life and mind of an American comic genius. With poignant and hilarious turns, Hammond takes readers from the set of Saturday Night Live, where he was the show'slongest-tenured cast member, to the drug-ridden streets of Harlem and into the twisting corridors of his own unflaggingly humorous consciousness. Mingling behind-the-scenes stories from television's best-loved comedy series with a dark look inside a world-class funnyman, his story is sure to resonate with anyone who shares a talent for performance, a love of comedy, or a desire to know how an artist can climb from the deepest despair to the very top of his profession.
