About

Dolphins Wearing Hats Comedy 

In the grand scheme of things, we are a group of lifelong friends who have a talent for making others laugh. Whether it is through personal misfortunes or a brilliant impression on certain public figures (cough, cough Bernie Sanders), there is always a way we will be able to present gut-splitting humor to the world. Where did we start?...

While we did have a podcast for some time in high school, all of us have experience on Youtube. From failed childhood videos to gaming tutorials, we each have contributed entertainment on the web. Other than that, Dolphins Wearing Hats was an idea during a poker game and it just popped from there. On summer breaks from college, there will be many skits and shows that we can film and publish. We have the talent to do it and now we need the tools.

To be clear, this is not a short film. This is an episodic webseries that will stream on a website weekly. Full episodes will be posted to the website while shorts and sketches will be on our Youtube channel. Every episode will have a certain "celebrity" that will be the main character in most sketches as well as be interviewed by the host of our show. Season One is in the creative process and will kick off once funding is complete.

The Team

Tom, Brendan (Birch), Jordan (Ging), Justin, and James are all eager to make this passion for comedy come to life. It is a stepping stone in our ventures to become SNL Cast members. We all have experience in the production business. Jordan also happens to be a musical mastermind while Tom has experience in performing comedy as well as comedy writing. We have the talent to entertain you all!

The Funds

With your money, we can bring an interactive online sketch/variety show to life. The main tools we need are a quality camera, video-editing software, as well as production equipment. Other expenses include props, costumes, and other software to help our dreams make you laugh.

We are all eager to make you laugh. So what do you say? Help us help you enjoy life.

Risks and challenges

If our project is funded, the main obstacle we would face is finding locations and extras. We could easily overcome these issues. By initiating a network we can find people to be extras as well as training people to be comedic actors. In addition, location finding will simply be resolved by seeking out accessible areas and we have the means to get this done.
Another obstacle we can foresee is not getting the desired online presence. In previous online ventures, we have had medium to little popularity. We plan on gathering famous individuals to sponsore as well as using funds to facilitate an ingenious marketing crew.
