Bitter embarrasses himself begging Steven Spielberg for a job via YouTube

It's been a while since we had a new video on this site, and what better way to kick things off with a fad that's sweeping the nation - asking celebrities for favors over the internet.  It's hiring season in Hollywood, particularly with regard to television and the Bitter Puppet is aggressively looking for a new job, which lead to.... this...

In all seriousness, I am ready to move on from this business of script reading, folks.  I'm hoping that this is the year I can transition into being a writer's assistant, for as we've discussed a number of times, that's an effective stepping stone on the way towards writing for TV.  Hell, I'm not too proud to go in for a writers' PA gig either.

I'm aware that these gigs are competitive and that the slots that don't go to people the writers have worked with before are quickly reserved for studio or network-mandated favors.  But I'm also a firm believer in the fact that there's always a way in through the door - or a way to make your own door.

So to anyone out there who might be hiring for such a position, I hope to meet with you soon.  Don't worry - I have plenty of references.  (You'd be surprised how many people are willing to vouch for a puppet!)  Feel free to drop me a line at with any leads.  And best of luck to everyone who's waiting to hear about the fate of their pilot!

And for those of you who enjoy these videos, a new stretch of episodes kicks off next week!


  1. Bitter,

    I'd hire ya -- and the puppet too! (But then you'd hafta move to Bonney Lake, WA...) Anywho, you rock, sir! Steven Spielberg would be a fool NOT to hire you. I hope all your dreams come true soon.

  2. That's awesome! What a great way to apply for a job.

  3. that was stupendous. Loved the closing like to Kate Upton.

  4. HILARIOUS! You deserve all the job offers you can handle.....

    And since you love Alf (I even have an Alf doll)--keep on plugging---we could use more shows like that again!

  5. This is great stuff! Thank you. Dave
