Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Finalist, Audio Drama, 2014

Bob Odenkirk and David Cross, creators of HBO's classic sketch comedy show Mr. Show, present to you this collection of never-before-seen scripts and ideas that Hollywood couldn't find the gumption to green-light. Simply put....

Hollywood Said No!

Since Mr. Show closed up shop, Bob and David have kept busy with many projects - acting in fun, successful, movies and TV shows, directing things, and complaining about stuff that didn't turn out well to anyone who would listen, and even alone, in silence, inside their own heads.

Hollywood Said No! reveals the full-length, never-before-seen scripts for 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.

This tome also includes a bonus section of orphaned sketch ideas from the Mr. Show days and beyond, suitable for performance by church groups that aren't all koo-koo about religion. What you are looking at online, and are about to buy, is chock-full of comic twists, turns, and maybe a few hard truths. We said "maybe," but what we mean was "probably not."

Now, for the first time, take a peek at the scripts that didn't get the go-ahead and ponder a world we can only dream about...and beyond!

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    Story
    "The Mr. Show Crew Redefine the "Audio Book""
    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?

    What did you love best about Hollywood Said No!?

    i found the full performance pretty hilarious.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I understand why these were not made into movies but that just makes the whole thing more ridiculous.


    What about David Cross and Bob Odenkirk ’s performance did you like?

    the cast are witty as ever, but they left the some of their crackups in the final recording, which i thought was funny.

    "For fans of Mr Show"
    What did you like most about Hollywood Said No!?

    That it was fully formed, it seemed effortless despite the fact the script was at the time over a decade old.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Bob, he's just the best.

    Bob yelling is up there with the best catchphrases.


    What about David Cross and Bob Odenkirk ’s performance did you like?

    It's always great to hear from Jay Johnston


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

    I nearly choked a few times due to laughter.


    Any additional comments?

    A great ensemble cast.
