Support The Shadow Show TV and we will support YOU!
Thank you so much for making your way to my Patreon page.
Here at The Shadow Show TV, I have been fortunate enough to be able to create smart and funny content to help put a smile on people's faces since my senior year of high school.
(Shout out to class of 2009!)
However with the ever-changing YouTube Community Guidelines, lack of ad monetization and an over-saturated market it’s difficult to turn a real profit without sponsors or what my parents like to call “a real job.”
Now that I have fully focused my brand and realized my dream as a writer/director I am hoping to move from simply making silly videos on social media to creating meaningful films and web series highlighting stories that matter to young people of color trying to follow their dreams. The only way I can be successful in this transition is through the contribution of my loyal Shadow Show community.

WHAT IS THE SHADOW SHOW TV?
The Shadow Show TV creates hilariously insightful comedy sketches and rants around social commentary, pop culture, millennial life, and the struggle of being a young entrepreneur of color.
Some of our web series include Friend Violation, Real Talk Rants, Moments In NYCNote 2 Self, FaceTime Stories, and more Shadow Show Originals.

I believe that in the current hostile state of the world we live in, comedy is not only needed but it can be the bridge to a common ground among the divided and ignorance. Now, I wanna elevate that responsibility by creating entertainment that also informs and educates my viewers about pop culture, politics, entrepreneurship, and everyday life.
But I am creating brand new content focusing more on original scripted web series, long-form sketches, and short films written, directed and produced by my media production company, Reel Deal Digital, and myself.
It’s about time my audience sees my true passion and skill outside of doing comedy.
It’s time to show the range! A brother don’t just got jokes. lol

WHY DO WE NEED YOUR HELP?
Making high-quality comedy with well researched and relatable insights across three social media platforms on a daily to weekly basis is no easy task. Trust me!
Not only that but to create web series and films on a little to no budget while location scouting and casting is close to impossible.

I take pride in my work, but our standard of quality comes at a cost.
To put things into perspective, a $2 monthly pledge is the equivalent of you watching 1,000 of our videos on YouTube. In other words, it would take 1,000 of your views each month to earn that same amount of money back.
Now I love making content for you guys but if we’re being honest YouTube is not paying the bills or putting food in my team’s mouths. We spend days —sometimes weeks— coming up with topics, developing interesting and unexpected perspectives, writing (and rewriting) scripts, shooting, recording, and editing each and everything we release.
And it takes a full team to pull it off! Mainly it is me doing all the leg work but through my collaboration with Society of the Arts, I am able to shoot in a spacious venue, cast other talented creatives, and use interns to assist in production. But none of that can continue if we aren’t able to keep the lights on or pay dues.

IT WOULD MEAN THE WORLD if you’d take this extra step to help us keep doing what we’ve been doing—and much more.

By becoming a patron, you'll help us continue building toward our vision and mission of driving empathy and understanding through critical thinking—all without taking ourselves too seriously!

WHAT ARE WE DOING WITH THE MONEY?
Glad you asked!
  • Cost of living. Creators gotta eat too :)
  • More of what we currently make. Comedy is not on low supplyon the internet, but there’s no one out there like The Shadow Show TV. By becoming a patron, I can continue to make content for young people of color trying to make their own mark in their career and spark new ideas about the world around us.
  • Web series and short films. We'll put funding toward developing new shows and prototypes—all in an effort to continue growing our footprint and community. That includes original scripted series under the backdrop of Rockland County, working with other creators, paying actors for their work, and increasing the quality of production.
  • Community exclusives. I want to bringour patrons exclusive content and experiences each month. From behind the scenes, bloopers, outtakes, footage of the process, and allowing you guys to create content that gets featured on my channel! That includes merch and events that allows opportunities for our Patreon community to get more involved and make this more than just a place to donate.
  • More obscure content. With your support, we'll have the opportunity to make up to 4 of our dream projects each year. Big major productions that allow me to really cater to my niche and widen my base. But we promise you'll love them!
We have all the pieces to get to our goal of being FULLY INDEPENDENT!
The only thing I am missing is YOU!

We don't expect or assume anyone will contribute any more to our projects than simply watching our videos but we hope that our supporters will donate a little bit more to watch us grow.
None of this can get done without your help. My subscribers have already rewarded me with the ability to monetize my creativity as a YouTube Partner but my dreams have always been to become an independent filmmaker creating compelling stories surrounding issues that represent people who look and think like me. So if any of that sounds appealing and you want to support the cause please donate whatever you can.
Thanks again for your continuing support and keep spreading the word!
BONG! DEUUUUCESSSS!
