    Not really a biography of Jim himself his nephew wrote one of those already and it's on my TBR but this was a fascinating and hilarious look at the comedic minds who went into the Ernest character Not so much known by kids now at one point in time the 80's and early 90's if you lived in the South or the Midwest as a kid you definitely saw his commercials and once he got a bigger ovation than mickey mouse Disney was all for making some low budget kids movies starring the great redneck hope and he even won an Emmy for best kids show Very surprised to learn that the minds behind the Ernest character then went on to create The Big Comfy Couch but in retrospect the same strain of comedy is all over it

    Entertaining but not really about Jim Varney What it is about is the production companyad agency that created Ernest It’s worth a read if you enjoy “making of” stories about pop culture phenomenons

    Too Much About AgencyToo much about as agency and not enough about Jim Varney Needed to dwell on the actorcomedian and not how they created Earnest
