Reviews
"The '90s were an exciting time for TV sketch comedy. In We're Not Worthy, Jason Klamm does a beautiful job compiling this rich history of nonsensical fart jokes, ratty synthetic wigs, and stick-on mustaches for all the world to read." - Kerry Kenney-Silver (The State / Reno 911!)
"We're Not Worthy is a real blast. Jason Klamm takes us on a wild ride through a breakthrough era. Thank goodness for all that ridiculousness!" -- Kevin Allison (The State / RISK!)
