The Comedy Button is a brand new nerd pop culture podcast with weekly video sketches.

BRAP! BRAP! BRAP!

What's going on internet?! You have no doubt come to this Kickstarter page because you were a fan of our old show. Well, that show is dead.

Sorry to be so blunt, but it's not coming back, not in the way you fell in love with it at least. But why mourn the death of something old when you can help bring a new show to life?

That's right, with your help we can create The Comedy Button! The Comedy Button is going to be the same exact off-topic show you've come to expect week after week. We even have the entire cast returning for the new show, and we're adding a new cast member, Max Scoville.

Plus, our show will be even better this time around because we're going to start producing original sketch comedy videos and shorts week after week. This can be anything from one of the characters or bits we create on the show acted out in real life, to the crew spending a day at the Zoo making fun of animals, or dubbing stock footage. The sky is the limit, and we need your help to get there.

Our intent is to get enough donations to fund an entire year of podcast episodes and video shorts. This includes creating a set-up that is of the highest professional quality, plus adding elements we never had before like the ability to answer live, on-air calls from people like you. And let's be blunt for a moment, videos are not cheap to produce. They're filled with tons of tiny hidden costs like sets, costumes, and equipment rental. But you can rest easy knowing every single dollar you donate to the show is going straight to the show. We will never pocket any of the cash for ourselves. Our dedication is to the show, and delivering the funniest possible production week after week. Our ultimate goal is that by the shows 1 year anniversary we'll have 48 regular podcast episodes, and 48 videos out there for the world to enjoy, all thanks to donations made by you.

So please, help us push The Comedy Button, and let's not turn this into a Tri-Force Ferris Wheel.

Saaaaaaaaaank You.

    You sir or madam are not only the mayor of Snob Hill, you own the place. And to show our gratitude, the entire cast of The Comedy Button will spend an entire day with you at an Amusement Park, Water Park, or Zoo. Who knows, maybe we'll even make one of our original videos there with you as the star. The only catch is, you have to provide your own travel and lodging to the Bay Area, but hey, let's face it, if you can afford to give us $1,000, you can afford a plane ticket and a room at the Super 8. But hey, on the plus side we'll pay for everything else. Not only that but you'll be an in studio guest for an episode, a call in segment guest for a future episode, the 30-second spot, the Brap! Brap! Brap! T-shirt, the Natalie Portman mix tape, the signed cast photo, the Snob Hill postcard, the thank you on the air, and your name at the top of the "Special Thanks" section of the official website.
