about

If Bossypants and Lean In got drunk and hooked up, their sloppy-sex love-child would be this juicy and insightful memoir which blows the the doors off the male dominated writers' room and offers a scathingly funny account of Hollywood's sexual politics over the last thirty years.After David Letterman publicly confessed that he had had "sex with staffers," former Late Night writer Nell Scovell felt compelled to speak out. Her revelations about gender discrimination in late night TV ignited a serious, sometimes contentious cultural debate about diversity in the workplace. Two years later, Scovell was collaborating with Sheryl Sandberg on speeches and Lean In.In Just the Funny Parts, Scovell shares revealing stories about some of the biggest names in entertainment, including Mark Harmon, Bette Midler, Andy Samberg, Candice Bergen, and Bart Simpson. She'll take you inside the writers' room where she worked side-by-side with David Letterman, Larry David, Garry Shandling, and Conan O'Brien, to name a few. As Julia Phillips did in You'll Never Eat Lunch in This Town Again and Robert Evans in The Kid Stays in the Picture, Scovell offers a candid insider look at Hollywood.Just the Funny Parts chronicles how Scovell survived in a highly-competitive, often hostile environment. As she puts it, "It's like Unbroken...but funnier and with slightly less torture." Timely and humorous, this book offers invaluable workplace advice for men and women and provides new insights into creating a more equal future.
