    Hollywood Said No! reveals the full-length, never-before-seen scripts for many would-be films, including Bob and David Make a Movie (fleshed out with brand-new storyboards by acclaimed artist Mike Mitchell) and Hooray For America! (a satirical power-house indictment of all that you hold dear).

    What made the experience of listening to Hollywood Said No! the most enjoyable?

    This book of scripts and sketches is not read, it's acted. Music, Sound effects, occasional bouts of laughter and ad-libs bring an extra dimension to what is on the written page, and in some cases, enhances our understanding of what the printed page can only hint at. You know these people care... giving their fans extra effort, extra audio layers, and making this "reading" an incomparable event.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There are too many to list, although David as the "President" of the United States is a real standout.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    During the performance of the first script, narrator Paul F. Tompkins suddenly disappears and is replaced... the clumsy explanation of this brings laughter from the actors and this listener.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listened to this in two "sittings"... driving. But only because I had to get out of the car.


    Any additional comments?

    This Audible edition is well worth it, even if you bought the print edition already. It's like a new episode of Mr. Show, with much of the same cast (in addition to Bob and David, I mean). Highly recommended. I only gave the "story" 4 stars because this book is made up of course of scripts Hollywood rejected. I mean, Hollywood knows what it's doing, right?

  • God, No!: Signs You May Already Be an Atheist and Other Magical Tales

    From the larger, louder half of the world-famous magic duo Penn & Teller comes a scathingly funny reinterpretation of The Ten Commandments. They are The Penn Commandments, and they reveal one outrageous and opinionated atheist’s experience in the world.

    What made the experience of listening to God, No! the most enjoyable?

    Penn Jillette has the enthusiasm of delivery and belief in his subject matter that makes this book compelling and sit in the car listenable.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Penn Jillette, of course. But God is a close second.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Penn's flaming dick in a hair dryer is a memorable and fascinating confession that is brave and funny.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed and almost cried. Penn's sense of the absurd and supposed tangents from the subject at hand made this a most interesting and compelling read.


    Any additional comments?

    Really, you don't have to not believe in god to enjoy this book, since there are so many show business, magic business, carny business and monkey business stories associated with each of the ten commandments Penn explores. But it's funnier if you don't believe and probably more satisfying.
