HEY DOORMAN VIII: True Tales of an Uncommon Bouncer in Los Angeles

The Blurb.

SEX — VIOLENCE — TRUMP Eight true tales from your wittiest bouncer’s, wittiest bouncer

Mister Kildemm chronicles the night life in the City of Angels as only he can, in the fourth installment of, Hey Doorman. But this time with a biting political edge working in cahoots with his always hilarious edge. That’s two edges people. TWO.

As Jerry Seinfeld once said, “I’m sure he’s having a good laugh over this with his doorman buddies.”


I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.


A month or 2 ago the author got a hold of me through my blog and asked if I would be interested in reading his book that would be coming out in February. He added links on Amazon to the first 3 books and when i saw they were all on Kindle Unlimited I grabbed book one to peruse when I got a free bit of time.  It was the same day I decided to stop taking new submissions for a while, I just had too much to read.  But since I mostly read Fantasy and Science fiction it is always nice to have something different once in a while so I accepted.  I am glad I did because it was a generally good book.

As far as the cover goes…. Well there is not much to it.  The editing was well done. I noticed one or two small things. but most people, I am sure would not. I liked the prose. The author writes like he is telling you a story face to face,  so while not what I usually read or review it was done well and fits the book.


Now about the book. Well the most important fact of the story is in the title.  The  Uncommon Bouncer part. And it is true The author  John P. Kildemm is a big guy  with a big IQ and a big sense of humor. Now John doesn’t talk much about himself in the book but he tells stories of some of the crazy things that happen to him while working the door at different clubs in L.A. I gather from the stories that he is the kind of guy that laughs silently to himself but while reading I was able to laugh along with him.

The last chapter was really good but it was about Political things so I won’t go in to it but it was funny.

Final Thoughts.

The stories are mostly funny, some are strange, but all are memorable. While i did enjoy the book I I felt it was a bit too short. The political things might get to some but I enjoyed it. Over all a good book by an interesting  guy. Next time I am in L.A. I might actually go to a club but only if the Doorman lets me cut the line. Like the hot goblin below. I give Hey Doorman  3.75 stars out of 5



All of the Hey Doorman books are  on Kindle Unlimited for free so go check em out.

  1. I have to agree with Drew (don’t tell him) about branching out every now and then. Since I really love Fantasy, but also enjoy Historical Fiction and Horror, it is easy to add variety. Sometimes I jump way out though and find myself pleasantly surprised. Nice review 🙂
