An intimate and light-hearted memoir by YouTube sensation and comedian Randy Rainbow that takes readers through his life--the highs, the lows, the lipstick, the pink glasses and the showtunes.

Randy Rainbow, the man who conquered YouTube with a stylish pair of pink glasses, an inexhaustible knowledge of show tunes, and the most gimlet-eyed view of American politics this side of Mark Twain finally tells all in Playing with Myself, a memoir sure to cause more than a few readers to begin singing one of his greatest hits like “A Spoonful of Clorox” or “Cover Your Freakin’ Face.”

As Randy has said, “There’s so much fake news out there about me. I can’t wait to set the record straight and finally give people a peek behind the green screen.” And set the record straight he does. Playing with Myself is a first-hand account of the journey that led Randy Rainbow from his childhood as the over-imaginative, often misunderstood little boy who carried a purse in the second grade to his first job on Broadway as the host at Hooters and on to the creation of his trademark comedy character. In chapters titled “Pajama Bottoms” (a look back at the days when he wore pajama bottoms on his head to pretend he was Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz), “Yes, It’s My Name! Shut Up!” (no explanation necessary...) and “Pink Glasses” (a rose-colored homage to his favorite accessory), Playing With Myself is a memoir that answers the question “Can an introverted musical theatre nerd with a Mac book and a dream save the world, one show tune at a time?”
