Shot in his hometown of Washington D.C. and completely crowdfunded by his fans (known as Eddiots), stand-up comedian, actor and podcaster Eddie Pence performs his first one-hour special. Eddie jokes about Star Wars, killer chihuahuas, streaking, and his unique take on parenting in the cellar of the D.C. Comedy Loft. The special was produced by Atlanta based company Hooty Hoo Productions.
“This comedy special is actually special because it was entirely crowdsourced by my fans. I could not have done this without them. Also, recording it in my hometown was a dream come true for me. I am beyond excited to work hand in hand with Comedy Dynamics to help get this project out into the world so everyone can see something truly (un)special.” said Eddie Pence.
“Collaborating with Comedy Dynamics during the release process was a pleasure. Directing Eddie’s special was an amazing experience. I hope to continue these collaborations in the future,” Hooty Hoo Productions co-founder Dustin Jacobs said.
“We’re excited to be releasing Eddie’s debut stand-up special!” said Brian Volk-Weiss, Founder and CEO of Comedy Dynamics.
