about

Fame can be fickle. Nobody knows that better than overnight sensation Gabriel Pegg . . . you know, Port-o-Potty Guy . . . from Erratic Automatic. Remember him? He went from the penthouse to the outhouse, and now Gabriel is persona non grata in the entertainment biz. Broke, behind on his child support payments, and a wanted man, Gabriel heads to the only place he has left: Greatness, Manitoba, population...I don't know, but there's one traffic light. Gabriel believes his destiny as a serious auteur awaits him, once he can rid himself of those pesky parental commitments. When Gabriel unwittingly signs himself up for six-days-a-week custody of his 11 year old daughter, Sometimes there's just no Escape from Greatness.

"Beautifully written, sharply observed, warm, wise, and funny, No Escape from Greatness is the thing we've all been waiting for: the Great Canadian Novel! But if there is already one (what the hell do I know, I'm an American, we don't know anything!) then, by God, this one is the next one!"

Steve Kaplan, Script Consultant, Author, The Hidden Tools of Comedy: The Serious Business of Being Funny

"Screenwriter and novelist Jeffrey John Eyamie has created a humorous, but grounded, story on Gabriel Pegg's fall from his 15 minutes of fame and his climb back"
