What are they saying about The Rejection Show?
"Ever wonder what you're not seeing? Each month comedians perform pieces that have been rejected by anything from Conan O'Brien to The New Yorker..."

“Novelists, TV writers, stand-up comics, cartoonists, filmmakers, recording artists, dramatists and poets come together for a friendly but edgy celebration of failure.”

"In New York, audiences are finding that failure is fun!"

"'The Rejection Show' is a refuge for the rebuffed, a haven for the heave-hoed,
a destination for the deep-sixed."

"…Not just a brilliant idea, it’s a well executed one."

"'What do you get when you display a whole bunch of stuff that didn’t make the cut at the New Yorker, Conan,
and a bevy of other shows and publications? Evidently, some funny shit.”

"True to it’s maxim, ‘Just because it’s been rejected doesn’t mean it’s not good,’ the show continues to attract an audience that can relate.”
