In marketing, the WORDS really do matter to young moms

 

Whew! what a LONG three ordeal. I helped a friend produce a TV pilot that is being shopped to Disney, Nick and some other TV networks.  The concept of the show: combination of sketch comedy, youtube shorts & a talk show with guests & a live band, BUT... all performed by teens, for teens. Think MadTV/SNL meets Conan O'Brien, yet clean and for kids & teens.

 

We had over 60 people on the crew, 12 teens in the house band, 16 actors in the teen cast, 180+ audience members  and some pretty heavy guests.  Tom Kenny (voice of Spongebob and about 50 other cartoon voices)  Malcolm David Kelley, the kid who plays Walt on Lost, Noah Cyrus from Hannah Montana & Matthew Underwood from Zoey 101.  

 

You can see more about the show here at ComedyWhacked.com   See Stan at http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1484248  and  Ned at  http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1566098   

 

We shot it at the coolest CHURCH in Southern California, Discovery Church. The staff Mark, Todd & the UNBELIEVABLE MIKE CLEAR are amazing guys who are crazy enough to let us try to do something big. Much love, we cleaned everything up! PROMISE!!!!

"eh' who do you want? Spongbob or Guido?"  

Tom was amazing to work with.

 

The cast of Comedy Whacked; Just hugely talented kids.

Tom Kenny

(Voice of Spongebob)

I love Ned, easiest guy to work with & very talented.

Kyle & Tessa were our "hosts." Think teen versions of Regis and Kelly, without the attitude!

 

They got to interview and do sketches with Tom Kenny, Noah Cyrus, Malcolm David Kelley and Matt Underwood.  It helped that Kyle had  worked before with Noah, Matt & Malcolm!

The stars came out!  Jason Dolley from Disney channel came out to support the cast & band.
