“My ego doesn’t like that I have to stop writing about myself,” Perry said. “But the book is finished now. So that’s it.’

In February, Perry tweeted a cover of the book and wrote: “So much has been written about me in the past. I thought it was about time people heard from me. The highs were high, the lows were deep. But I lived to tell the story, even if at times it seemed I wouldn’t. And it’s all in here. My apologies that it’s not a pop-up book.’

Perry appeared in the 2021 Special Friends: The Reunion with Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer and Matt LeBlanc

On the HBO Max special, Perry spoke about the pressure he put himself under while appearing on the hit series.

“For me, I felt like I was going to die if they didn’t laugh,” he said. “If I didn’t get the laugh I was supposed to get, I would freak out.”
