THE REJECTION SHOW is a standup/storytelling/multimedia live comedy variety show featuring stories of failure and rejection, and the actual rejected works of well-known and up-and-coming comedians, writers, animators, television stars, and social media personalities, with each show tackling a variety of themes of rejection as it relates to trying to make it in showbiz.
For every piece of accepted material, there are hundreds of pieces of rejected material— and unique, often heartbreakingly hilarious background stories that go along with them. The Rejection Show takes a look at these rejected works (through clips, slide shows, correspondences, power points, reenactments, performances, negative comments, and more) and the stories behind them as told on stage by the talent themselves. Through these cathartic experiences, The Rejection Show offers an inside look at what it takes to deal with and overcome rejection, in an industry where rejection so heavily outweighs acceptance. Also, it’s hilarious.
