About this project
RANDY BY NATURE IS CHANGING THE DEFINITION OF NEW MEDIA.
Comedian Randy Kagan created and stars in this groundbreaking environmental comedy show. We are ready to take this show to the next level, will you be a part of it?
RANDY BY NATURE DOES FOR ECO TOPICS WHAT THE DAILY SHOW DOES FOR POLITICS.
We use every comedy weapon to deal with serious issues, creating comedy from all angles. RBN transforms the mundane and depressing to fast, funny and accidentally educational. This show is for everyone.
The very funny Sarah Silverman
RANDY BY NATURE WILL BE A POWERFUL WEBSERIES.
Designed for those with short attention spans, RBN uses jokes, running characters, girls-going-green and fake commercials to help the eco-medicine go down. While broadcast television shows cater to the interests of their corporate sponsors, we want to deliver a show FOR the people, BY the people. We are not comfortable with censored comedy. Guardrail issues mean less jokes. (How would you feel if you couldn’t say “light bulb”?) Your pledge is funding the ULTIMATE free-expression.
On the street in NYC
RANDY BY NATURE TAKES YOU WHERE THE STORY IS.
From Arizona, where they are re-introducing the Mexican Gray Wolf, to Canada, where they are interested in “Dirty Sand Tar”. Randy By Nature has the potential to travel worldwide. The environment is GLOBAL! The more funds we raise, the farther we can investigate.
Randy and Judah Friedlander
RANDY BY NATURE IS AN EVERGREEN SHOW.
Will RBN run out of ideas for future episodes? Let's just say that National Geographic has been around since 1888, and has not run out of interesting things to print. The list of environmental topics is endless!

HOW WILL THE SHOW BE FORMATTED?
Our next batch of episodes will have a stricter format, but still maintain flexibility.
Each episode will be 5-6 minutes in length, and will include the following:
1. “Introduction / opening monologue” by Randy Kagan.
2. “Field Piece” - Randy takes you where the story is.
3. “Character” (or guest) - Anyone from Sarah Silverman to the Eco Zombie.
4. “Topic-related Skit” or “Fake Commercial”.
5. “Call to Action” - Where you can find out more about the topic and how to contact RBN.
THE BIGGER THE BUDGET, THE BETTER THE SHOW!
