Summary

Hilarious instructions for achieving a stable romantic relationship from a professionally funny couple who did it themselves
 

Who better to write a very humorous manual about evolving modern relationships than two CollegeHumor veterans and viral-video stars who happen to be a real-life husband-and-wife team? With candor, bite, and charm, HEY, U UP? takes listeners on an eight-chapter journey through the trials of hooking up to the foibles of marriage, and combines the authors' prescriptive advice with the unfolding story of their own relationship. HEY, U UP? tackles all the milestones of relationships today- both glorious and embarrassing - with sections ranging from "How to Ask Someone Out After You've Slept with Them" all the way to "Establish Your Family as the Christmas Family by Turning Your Significant Other Against Their Own Parents."

Very funny and actually a bit insightful

Well they explicitly asked for a 5 star rating in the book! But seriously it is a fun read. It’s a bit like a pick your own adventure story and the goal is a relationship.

Murphy x Emily Ultimate Duo

This book just shows how despite the fact that dating can be hard it can also be quite funny and not as scary as TV or Movies make it.

Great duo and great book

This perhaps my favorite satire dating advice book but then again it is the only one I have. Though if I were to find another one this one would most likely be better than it.

A Good Laugh from a Relatable Couple

This book was so funny, it had me in stitches most of the time. The back and forth narration was a great, it felt like you were having a chat from two of your funniest friends. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone (single, married or in between) to listen to.

Hey, u up? (For a good listening experience)

I listened to the book because after a year of hearing Emily and Murph plug it in not another dnd podcast my interest had slowly built into a need to listen to the book.

The book was fun and entertaining, and Emily and Murph read it well. They did a good job conveying the graphs and illustrations of the book through audio, and read in a way that felt natural and pleasant to listen to.

There are many fun jokes, but it also provides interesting social commentary as it pokes fun at patriarchal traditions and points out the ethical problems with diamond trade.

Good read, I absolutely recommend it.

Honestly funniest book I’ve ever read(or had read to me). Murph and Emily are beyond couple goals, and they’re encouragement to gaslight your partner is hilarious.

Hysterical

I am constantly amazed at not only the breadth of talents Emily and Brian have, but how well a couple can effectively and creatively work together on so much. Honestly, I'd listen to a whole second book about that.

I have rarely laughed so much listening to an audio book. The authors bring their best, proving once again that their knack for comedic observation is impeccable.
