Kelly Oxford is a Twitter superstar. Now she has a book.
Described by Jimmy Kimmel as someone that is "very consistently and solidly hilarious," Oxford is an online superstar.
This book is a moderately perfected version of her life story. Her life has been paved with uncommon adventures and exploits. How many 6 year olds try to adapt Star Wars for the stage and get their friends to audition? Not that many, I suppose, but Oxford did it. It wasn't successful but she tried.
This book is written as if it were a series of short stories. It's not written as a narrative memoir book would be.
At 12 years old, she was washing the dishes at a restaurant. Here in the United States, it would be a violation of Child Labor Laws but I guess that things are much different with our friends in the north.
Her first trip to Hollywood was spent trying to find Leonardo Dicaprio before Titanic opened to a massive amount of money at the box office. That didn't work out too well for her.
In the fall of 2011, NBC hired her to write a pilot, which wasn't picked up to series. A year ago, Warner Brothers bought a screenplay that she wrote.
Oxford isn't your typical comedy star. Known mainly for her writing and not performing, she found her voice through chat rooms, blogs, and on Twitter. Stand-up comedians hone their craft in comedy clubs. Oxford uses social media to hone her craft.
