Outsider. Misfit. Criminal. Convict. Movie star. Family man. Comedy legend. Joey Diaz has been called every name in the book (and then some). Now, for the first time, he shares the story of his unlikely rise to fame in his own words—with no punches pulled. Today, he stars in hit films, headlines sold-out tours, hosts the popular Uncle Joey's Joint podcast, and is a devoted father—but his life wasn't always so pictureperfect. Tremendous is the story of Diaz's life, from grueling childhood and misspent youth to finding his true calling in comedy. Immigrants, fans of celebrity tales, and comedy enthusiasts alike will be enthralled by this incredibly true, foul-mouthed, and funny memoir. It's not a story for the faint of heart, or for prudes who've never spent a week sleeping on a piece of playground equipment. Diaz shares it all with brutal honesty and humor, in the same inimitable voice he'd use talking to you from the stage or in a bar. An inspiration for misfits everywhere, Tremendous is storytelling at its finest—and a reminder that the direst of circumstances can change in unimaginable, unpredictable ways.
