    I am so disappointed that you've been knocked out of ComedyCoup. You have an extremely high rating, excellent feedback from your peers and competitors, acknowledgement of the comedic writing from other writers and high production value. You should have been given a chance to see how the public responded to your project.

    Anything with Tesla is cool. With the $500k, you could actually least a Tesla car and have Tesla pissed for not getting royalties.
