When The Balls Drop is a crass book that isn’t about anything other than Garrett’s stand-up comedy routines, which are nothing more than warmed over Don Rickles routines. As you can image this doesn’t translate to paper very well. Garrett doesn’t talk much about television, but the book does deal with aging. Even here it assumes the worst.. in everybody and everything. The book isn’t very long and I had no trouble getting through even the worst parts. The best part of the book is the cover, which might explain how I ended up reading it in the first place.
