Stand-up Comedian turned Author releases first book to critical acclaim

When was the last time you read a book about organized crime, the US Marine Corps, boating and hairdressing"?~YFR Critic Rebecca Ross is pleased to announce that John Consoli will be featured on the popular book sampling site - joining the ranks of some of the most famous authors in the world.

As a featured author, the first chapters of Consoli's new book You Don't Get to Wear That are now available to thousands of readers to sample, free of charge.

Consoli is currently planning a national tour to promote his book, an auto-biographical whirlwind that readers and critics alike are calling impossible to put down.

In a recent review, YFR book reviewer Rebecca Ross wrote:
When was the last time you read a book about organized crime, the Marine Corps, boating, and hair styling? Throw in the Witness Protection Program, a con-artist father, and the Hells Angels and you’ve got John Consoli’s You Don’t Get to Wear That. If that all sounds crazy, it is. In this autobiographical tale of survival, readers are taken on a tumultuous ride through Consoli’s life as he attempts to find humor in moments of tragedy from his youth and adulthood.

John Consoli is a nationally touring stand-up comedian from New York. Prior to embarking on his career in show business, he was a Drill Instructor in the US Marines and a successful sales executive in the IT industry.

"This story took me two years to write, but it took me fifty years to live," says Consoli from his home on Long Island. "In addition to being wildly entertaining, the story contains a valuable life lesson. It makes me feel wonderful that my readers will not have to go through what I went through to learn it."

Consoli has also written a one man show based on the book. The next performance is scheduled for November 5, 2014 at The Brokerage Comedy Theater in Bellmore, NY.

You Don't Get to Wear That is published by Create Space Publishing and is available in Kindle and Paperback versions on
