“Waiting for the Real World to Catch Up” is the story of Scottrick, a crazed inventor, who goes to extreme lengths to find success. In the book, he champions one spurious idea after another and becomes enraged when his million-dollar idea for a newfangled colostomy bag is snatched away by greedy and jealous co-workers. A spiteful boss fires him, but his patent lives on and is the subject of a costly infringement suit. The company desperately needs his help, but can they get cooperation from a deep-sixed Scottrick?
After his corporate “experience,” Scottrick bungles through a series of misadventures, including making a wacky record album and trying to be a truck driver, and is finally reduced to working alongside actress wannabe Tina Fey at the YMCA. Her later success inspires him to achieve fifteen seconds of fame by writing a book in the obscure field of kitchen collectibles. But can this land him in the hot seat on “Who Wants to be a Millionaire?”
“Waiting for the Real World to Catch Up” is a humorous take on the undefeatable American spirit, with special celebrity cameos by Tina Fey, Meredith Vieira, Martha Stewart, and others!
