Hey Kickstarter fam.  I'm a standup comic in Australia, talking mostly about politics, race and comic books.  I used to perform in a comedy duo called Fear of a Brown Planet.  Now I want to produce and release my first solo comedy special, but it turns out there aren't any rich people or TV networks out there interested in funding one for me out of the kindness of their hearts.

I want to crowdfund this release directly with the help of people like you who support my comedy.  There's a few different donation rewards, but the main one is a basic $10 pre-order for early access to the one-hour video download that will be released officially by the end of the year.

The special will be filmed in two back-to-back shows at the State Library of Victoria in Melbourne by award winners Blueprint Studio who shot and produced the clip above.

Tickets to the live taping are available here: http://www.trybooking.com/Booking/BookingEventSummary.aspx?eid=82208

All funds will go towards paying for filming and editing the special and making it available online, paying for the filming of extra DVD features from my upcoming US and UK tours, and producing my first run of CDs and DVDs.

Risks and challenges

Blueprint Studio is a production house with years of experience and I'm lucky to have them managing this project as well as offering to do it at an affordable cost.

We are doing the entire project in-house so are not relying on any external participants or collaborators to deliver anything other than printing hard copies of CDs and DVDs after production.
