Treat Yourself!

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!

Good use of a credit...

Put a little funny in your day... excellent material for your ipod. Good format - a series of short, comic anecdotes, and a surprising variety on the theme. Don't forget the sequel, "Fired Again". Enjoyable reminder to rise above, see the humour in a bad situation, and that no matter how bad today is, there is always someone more pathetic than you!

Not so funny

The sample clip was humorous, but that was the best five minutes of FIRED: TALES OF JOBS GONE BAD.

Audible has much funnier plays/monologues available. Skip this one.

I'd pass

Not a lot to say: There's a magic to informal live theater and improv/comedy. I can imagine this having been a great experience in person, but I'm not sure. On audio though, I found it fell flat. If you're smarting from a firing, you might find more here than I did. Some fun details, but I can't really recommend it.

A lively and amusing

presentation of several performers and their various firings. Some justified all amusing. A quick fast paced listen sure to elicit some chuckles the material ranges from the dry to the raunchy but all is quite entertaining. If you enjoy this seek out it's somewhat more staged and produced sequel
