I'm making my first full-length, iTunes comedy album. There will be funny songs and sketches, and you will laugh.
My Very First iTunes Comedy Album!
Hi friends, fans, family, and friends and fans of family and friends. As most of you know, I have been very fortunate to be making a living doing comedy full-time for over a year now. Since January of 2011, I have performed at nearly 100 colleges and comedy clubs across the country. So what is the next logical step for a "making-ends-meet-comedian-living-in-Los-Angeles"? Uh, a comedy album!
I Need Your help!
The bad news is I don't have anyone to financially back this album. So I'm hoping that some people out there on the internets would like to help me (and get some cool stuff for yourself, as well). My main incentive is that for just $5, YOU WILL GET A COPY OF THE COMPLETED ALBUM ON iTUNES! Basically, you get to pre-order this album for just $5. All pledges over $5 get the album, plus other awesome stuff.
The Album is going to be a combination of my original songs and sketches. I'm going to be working with some very funny comedians and very talented musicians to make this whole thing one giant, collaborative, comedy explosion.
When Does It All Go Down?
I have secured an awesome sound studio in the middle of LA, and I have a couple of producers and a sound engineers ready to go. I'm going to be working with professionals on this, so that it sounds perfect. I'm actually going to be working very closely with a Grammy Winning Producer...so I got that going for me...which is nice. For all of that awesomeness, the entire project is going to cost an incredibly low price of $5000!
Of the $5000, I am very happy to invest my own money (I think that's only fair). I'm willing to put up $2500 of my own to make sure that this thing happens. For real. My hope with Kickstarter is that I can raise the other $2500 from O'Sulli-fans and O'Sulli-friends and O'Sulli-family members.
We are scheduled to start making comedy in the middle of March, and I will be keeping everyone updated on the progress as it...progresses.
Breakdown of Where The Money Will Go
- $3000 for an amazing, but incredibly inexpensive sound engineer
- $1000 for an amazing, but incredibly inexpensive studio rental
- $1000 (at the very least) for mass producing physical copies of the album
What If I Don't Reach My Goal of $2500?
For those of you that have never been to this website before, Kickstarter is an awesome way to get people to back your creative projects. But unless ALL of the $2500 goal is met, then no one gets anything...and that would just be sad.
Thanks for your time. I love you all. Some more than others.
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
