Hilarious, candid, and full of shenanigans, YouTube sensation Mamrie Hart—the New York Times bestselling author ofYou Deserve a Drink—is back with more adventures. She chats with Janeane Bernstein about her latest essay collection, I’VE GOT THIS ROUND: More Tales of Debauchery
Listen to today's featured guest, Mamrie Hart!
An enormous name in the world of YouTube celebrity for her You Deserve a Drink series, Mamrie Hart’s first book, You Deserve a Drink launched at #5 on the New York Times bestseller list. In 2016, Mamrie wrote, executive-produced, and starred in Lionsgate’s feature-length comedy Dirty 30, for which she won the Best Actress Streamy Award in 2017. She earned a coveted position on Variety’s annual list of Hollywood’s New Leaders that same year, and a spot on The Hollywood Reporter’s 2017 Digital Disruptor’s list tied to a title she is writing for Sony and a new IP she is developing for Reese Witherspoon’s digital arm, Hello Sunshine.
In February, Mamrie will return to the written word with her second essay collection with I’VE GOT THIS ROUND: More Tales of Debauchery, a wild, unforgettable, hilarious and honest journey through something most Millennials would prefer to avoid: adulting.
When Mamrie simultaneously enters her 30s and finds herself single for the first time since college, the world is suddenly full of possibilities. Emboldened by the cool confidence that comes with the end of one's 20s plus the newfound independence of an attachment-free lifestyle, Mamrie commits herself to living life with even more spirit, adventure, and heart than before.
Mamrie dives into new experiences at full-tilt and seeks out once-in-a-lifetime opportunities (like meeting the Dixie Chicks), bucket-list goals (like visiting the Moulin Rouge), and madcap adventures (like going anchors-away on a Backstreet Boys cruise)—all while diving back into the dating world for the first time in a decade.
In I've Got This Round, readers will find the same shameless honesty and I'll-try-anything-once spirit they loved in Hart’s New York Times bestseller You Deserve a Drink. Mamrie doubles down on her strong female friendships, her willingness to engage in shenanigans, and her inimitable candor, taking the reader along for a wild and unforgettable journey through adulting.
