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.

Since Mr. Show closed up shop, Bob and David have kept busy with many projects—acting in fun, successful, movies and television 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.

Chock-full of comic twists, turns, and maybe a few hard truths, Hollywood Said No! reveals the full-length, never-before-seen scripts for Bob and David Make a Movie 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. 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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Sketch comedians Bob Odenkirk, David Cross, Brian Posehn, and a host of other people chip in to make this audio production a much richer experience than the book will ever be. Pulling together different material that Odenkirk and Cross have worked on over the years, they enact some amusing scripts and skits that fans of their HBO series, Mr. Show, will appreciate. Including other actors they’ve worked with makes the production that much more enjoyable and creative, and the use of sound effects and music enhances the experience…This is a fun listening experience for those who enjoy the ridiculous and the absurd.”
