Hooray for failure! REJECTION SHOW PRESS QUOTES "On the surface, The Rejection Show is a mere demonstration of unsuccessful work by usually successful comedians, writers, filmmakers, and cartoonists. Deep down, though, it provides an interesting look into the thought processes of magazine editors, network executives, and others who wield power." –THE ONION "For most people, rejection means a bottle of Jack and a pint of Ben & Jerry's. But for one comedic genius, rejection has meant a cult hit show, national recognition, and now --a book deal? "Rejected" author Jon Friedman first gave life to The Rejection Show after he found himself passed over for a job at Comedy Central and, worse, dumped. Since then the invariably hilarious lineup of rejected New Yorker comics, Late Show sketches, and dismissive childhood sweethearts has featured a variety of New York personalities. Check out the failures and the mayhem if you are sucker for bloopers and outtakes, or just revel in others' disappointments." -NEW YORK MAGAZINE visit for more info
