2017 | The Year That Was

James Schlarmann

2017 was the year that was but certainly shouldn’t have been. 


From the increased action in the Russia Investigation and the short-lived appointment of the memorable Anthony ‘The Mooch’ Scaramucci, to White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer, revealing a love of garden shrubbery and the details of the internet use of Texas Senator, Ted Cruz, the first year of the Trump Administration is one we’ll never forget — no matter how much we try.


Featuring over 160 pieces, sit back and enjoy a comical take on 2017 as comedian James Schlarmann pokes his stick of satire at the news that was, but shouldn’t have been.

Based in San Diego, James Schlarmann is a comedian, musician, and semi-professional burrito wrangler.

James has received no lifetime achievement awards but hopes that you still buy this book because he likes to feed his children with food.  


You can catch James performing live in comedy clubs across the San Diego area.
