Maker Studios

After 4 blessed, awesome, creative, and productive years we announce that come April 2017 we will mutually dissolve our partnership with Maker Studios. As Disney's online video platform has changed and our business model has evolved, we mutually salute the hats and walk away.

Thank you for the chance to produce a pilot, the increased YouTube views, the royalty free resources, and all of the networking opportunities. We love Disney with all of our hearts and cannot wait to work with them in the future. Thank you so much for everything.

Cheers! Here is to the next big thing in the world of King Man Productions. Thank YOU for being with us on the ride. It's just getting started.

Keeping It Light In The Dawn of a New Age

I, like many Americans, did not long for this day (Inauguration Day, January 20, 2017) for obvious reasons. A lot of people are sad today, fearful, also regretful in some circles. But as I got ready this morning I made a decision. I am not going to give into the negativity and bring this upon myself. There is nothing I can do to change anything that has happened, but I can bring new hope to the future.

Last night I wrote a comedy sketch for the first time in months. Revisiting the writing is something that was long overdue, but it needed to be done. As I was writing it (one of my best too IMHO), I thought that this is what God needs me to do right now. A lot of my friends are upset at the state of our country and they need a little comedy. A lot of people whom I've never met are upset right now as well, and they could use a little laughter.

That's what I am going to do. Rather than be morose and cynical, I am going to be creative and positive. I am going to write and film sket…

Big Update

Hey, y'all! I just wanted to give a proper King Man Productions update:
Back in November I pitched a television show idea to Disney/Maker Studios about a pilot I wrote consisting of sketches, music and comedy bits.  Happily and gratefully, they contacted me in December and requested I move forward with a pilot. With some funding, King Man Productions produced a quick, funny pilot to submit, which after four days of filming, we turned in. After several edits, and much communication, I was asked to post the video online March 1st, and was congratulated per further developments. It had reached the final phase of approvals and if there are further steps, I shall hear.
While this is probably the final leg of this production, I cannot tell you how grateful I am and excited to share this with you all. It's a huge boost to the comedic brand my friends and I have been working on for so long and I am so excited for this year, and for the future. So many people have put in so much time …

The End of Show Your Shortz

Good evening my fellow comedians. This will be the last time I address you from the Green Room at Flappers. 
I'm sorry, I couldn't resist.
A little over three years ago I was handed the reins of the comedy video sketch show, "Show Your Shortz," by my friend Jacare Calhoun. The show was a vehicle for filmmakers and comedians to showcase their craft and stage presence at Flappers Comedy Club in Burbank. Originally it started on Thursday nights, then moved to Sundays, then moved to the Main Room from the Yoo Hoo Room, then back to the Yoo Hoo Room.
My good buddy Dave Swan helped me host the show, and he was always on point and always "on" every single show. He never missed a beat and always delivered his same, remarkable, funny comedy. He is super funny, and I encourage you to check out @Swanagram on Twitter. You'll love him.
I've decided this past month to officially retire "Show Your Shortz" from the live stage. The show will live on, in a …

10 People Found In Every Workplace

by Matthew Clark

No matter where you are employed, were employed, what hours you keep or what profession you hold, you will notice a familiar pattern among co-workers.

Here are 10 people you will find in every workplace in the world:

1. The Sports Guy
This person, usually a man but not limited to, is usually chipper at all times of the day and can be found at the water cooler or the kitchen area. He/she will constantly ask if you if you've seen the "big game" last night regardless if you watch sports or not. He knows every statistic, player and schedule of every team in every city and can single-handily explain down to the last detail why his team won/lost over the weekend. You begin to wonder if he’s even a person or perhaps regurgitated rhetoric of mascots past.

2. The Minimalist
The Minimalist has worked at their job long enough to comfortably and meticulously do the absolute bare minimum of work in order to not get fired. Typically they have been working there longer than …

Wildlife Crisis: Saving Endangered Species From Being Wiped Off of the Face of the Earth

If you ever look at my Twitter feed (@KingManProds), Facebook or any other personal social media outlet of mine it's no secret that I am passionate about the conservation of animals, particularly critically endangered ones.  Caring people tend to advocate for charities and causes they are close to, usually because of some close, personal connection.  Whether it'd be from something that happened to them or someone they know, or perhaps it's from an event, or maybe it's just because they care, there are many reasons people tend to support a particular charity.
In the past I have donated, and still do, to many different charities, but animal and environment conservation efforts have been my primary focus.  I love animals, and this goes back since I was a little kid.  My dad used to take me to the zoo a lot and I have always enjoyed being so close to these magnificent creatures.  Once, when I was five years old, I tried to climb into the Cheetah exhibit because I wanted to …

Fan Mail

Image good friend Jon Hassinger, co-host of the Jon & Agnew Show, has been hosting the "Rogue Show" lately on with our friend Katie Corrado.  They've recently started a segment where they read fan letters. 

I could not help but to anonymously write a few.  Here are three of them:

"Once I was swimming in the Atlantic Ocean off of Ocean City, actually, it was more like 'wading' in the shallow part.  You see, I am a man of larger stature to put it, meaning I'm obese, and I can't really take my mobility scooter into the water, so I was more ore less just splashing around in that part where there's about an inch of water in the sand.  It was kind of funny until I urinated profusely in my drawers.  That, with the mixture of salt and sand, burned me for days.  I had to put mustard down there.  Anyway, I was sitting there listening to Divo when I saw angelic being drifting on a surfboard.  Afte…
