Dave Merhar, King of Comedy + Boss of the Big Stage

 

“Every idea deserves every chance to live on the biggest stage.” Nobody knows that more than Dave Merhar. He said it. He’s done it. He’s doing it.

Dave has 13 SuperBowl commercials that he’s either directed or written so he knows the “big stage”.  Now that the “big stage” is changing, every idea has the same chance to be viewed by billions. With comedy as the backbone, Dave has created and filmed award-winning work for some of the biggest clients in the world, including AB/InBev, McDonalds, Dunkin Donuts and scores of others.

Dave knows comedy, he knows visuals, he knows writing and he knows how clients work. With 2 television shows and features in development in Hollywood, the stage only gets bigger. But Dave’s goal remains simple; to be a true partner with you as the world of media consumption changes. That’s how great things get done on any stage.

 

A little work to share:

Bodega director Adam Reid Kickstarts his goal to send Barack & Joe back in time

UPDATE: Adam made his goal of $100K and then some! He’s getting right to work on the pilot episode and in the near future we shall see Neil DeGrasse Tyson sending Barack + Joe back in time to save ourselves ! Congrats Adam !

Adam Reid has a most excellent Kickstarter project.  As we write this, only 36 hours – and a mere 12K-ish – to go!

Check this terrific coverage from Vice

 

Earlier this year, the wonders of crowdfunding made the long-awaited sequel to Super Troopers a reality. Now, it just might bring another insane, hash-fueled dream to life: a time-travel adventure cartoon about Barack Obama and jogging enthusiast Joe Biden.

At the beginning of August, filmmaker Adam Reid launched a Kickstarter, hoping to raise $100,000 to make the pilot for Barry & Joe—an animated series he dreamed up about Obama and Biden righting the wrongs of our world, fighting Trump, and dicking around with the space-time continuum. It’s basically Jonny Quest meets Quantum Leap if Jonny and Hadji were actually former Democratic leaders and the entire Hanna-Barbera writing staff was on mescaline during development. Oh, and an animated Neil deGrasse Tyson will serve as their time-travel guide.

“These are the adventures of Barack Obama and Joe Biden bromancing the multiverse as they try and save us from ourselves,” Reid wrote in the Kickstarter description. “Moments after the inauguration of the forty-fifth president, Barack Obama and his best friend Joe Biden were escorted to a secret lab, run by a team of the world’s greatest scientists and occasionally Elon Musk.”

According to a recent interview with DCist, Reid hatched the idea after Trump won the election last November, but he “put [the concept] away for six months because it’s clearly a stoner idea.” It took until summer to realize that a stoner idea may be just what America needs.

The Kickstarter has already raised over $70,000 over the past few weeks. If it can pull in another few thousand by this Thursday, Barry & Joe: The Animated Series will head straight to production on a short pilot episode, which Reid can use as a proof of concept for a full series.

“Isn’t this just leftist fan fiction meant to give solace to those who need some hope and healing?” the campaign’s FAQs asks. “Yes,” is Reid’s response. But he’ll have to raise another $30,000 before that hope and healing can begin.

The Barry & Joe Kickstarter runs until August 31. Watch the series pitch video, which spells out the entire batshit premise, above.
