Classes at The PIT will get you on The Daily Show, says The PIT

On The PIT's website, the top headline is "PIT Student Hired at The Daily Show!"

PITizen Rachel Axler was recently hired as a writer on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. After taking "Writing for The Daily Show" with PIT faculty member (and Daily Show writer) J.R. Havlan, her work was read by the producer that reviews submissions for the show. On May 2nd, her first day on the job, she joined PITizen Bob Wiltfong as a member of The Daily Show staff. Congratulations Rachel! To find out more about "Writing for The Daily Show" and other PIT classes, visit our classes page.

According to our research, all Rachel's friends knew she'd be a famous writer some day. Goes to show that with a little education, and a notable profuseness of natural talent, dedication, and charisma... you can do anything!
