  • "Treat Yourself!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Some of the brightest lights of the comedy world join together in this delightful collection of always amusing and often hilarious anecdotes of "failure" from their own lives. I especially enjoyed Paul F. Tompkins' (a particular favorite of mine) story about his being fired from two different video store jobs, but all of the stories were quite good (as well as the Roy Zimmerman song).

    Compared to the cost of the usual comedy album download, this collection is quite a bargain and can be counted on to give your spirits a lift--it certainly did for me!

Gurwitch and a revolving cast of fellow show-biz veterans share their stories when L.A. Theatre Works records Fired: Tales of Jobs Gone Bad.

    In one year Julia Sweeney got a divorce (amicable), bought a small bungalow in Hollywood, and looked forward to a life that said, "Here dwells a happily single young woman!" But then the axe fell. Her younger brother, Mike, was diagnosed with terminal cancer and moved in with her. Her parents came to be with Mike and moved in with her, too. Julia was now on seriously intimate terms with the people she had spent half a lifetime growing up away from.
