Make sure the kids aren’t around! Just because you’re a grown-up doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the art of the children’s bedtime story. Nick Offerman presents this collection of 12 short stories written in the style of a classic kids’ tale, but with a decidedly dark and adult approach. What really happened after Snow White died, from the perspective of the one medically trained dwarf? A naive wizard professor reports back from the trenches of an underprivileged school of magic. A middle-aged man is haunted by the voices of his own aging body. The stories will make you laugh, cry and probably squirm a little. All performed by actors like Patrick Stewart, Alia Shawkat, Ellen Page, Mike Birbiglia, and many more.

As the other review shows, this is likely not the Audible Original for everyone. The humor is not rip-roaring or goof-ball style. It's cynical, clipped, and dry. If you find amusement in those styles, then you will love this. More Bedtime Stories for Cynics explores the oddity and satire in being human. Every story is a dark parody about adult life. A man who can't escape his acid reflux, a middle-aged woman looking for love in all the wrong places, a man being haunted and harassed by his aging body, and so many more. These stories are all downright funny and relatable, and read by such a great cast of people. Nick Offerman, Jane Lynch, Ellen Page, and THE Sir Patrick Stewart to name a few. I absolutely recommend giving this a listen if you enjoy satirical adult comedy with a lean toward dry cynicism. This one gets an easy 5 stars across the board from me!
