Jonah's going to be directing comedy specials with Dropout folks!

I’m a Dropout subscriber, and I just got this email from their mailing list and spotted Jonah in the last paragraph:

Live specials from Hank Green, Brennan & Izzy, and more coming to Dropout!

So excited to announce “Dropout Presents” - a new series of live recorded comedy specials coming to Dropout starting this summer! The series will premiere with Hank Green’s stand-up special and will be followed by additional specials set to release throughout the rest of the year:

  • Adam Conover: Unmedicated

  • Bigger! with Brennan & Izzy (featuring Brennan Lee Mulligan and Isabella Roland)

  • The Big Team (featuring Ify Nwadiwe, Carl Tart, Zeke Nicholson, Lamar Woods, Ronnie Adrian, and Ishmel Sahid)

  • From Ally to Zacky (featuring Ally Beardsley, Zac Oyama, Jacob Wysocki, Talia Tabin, Oscar Montoya, Victoria Longwell, Kimia Behpoornia, and Devin Field)

  • Chris Grace: As Scarlett Johansson

  • Courtney Pauroso: Vanessa 5000

Directed by Jonah Ray Rodrigues and shot at beloved Los Angeles venues Dynasty Typewriter (Hank Green), The Elysian (Bigger!, The Big Team, From Ally to Zacky, Courtney Pauroso: Vanessa 5000, and Chris Grace: As Scarlett Johansson), and The Nocturne Theater (Adam Conover), each special will be accompanied by a behind-the-scenes featurette to give viewers an intimate look at the performers’ respective processes in preparing for their live specials.

I’m a big fan of a lot of Dropout’s content, so I’m really excited that there’s some crossover with the MST3K crowd! Looks like the trailer’s already on YouTube! (I haven’t watched it yet, but fair warning, I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s some strong language in there. I already had to delete the name of Hank Green’s standup special, “Peeing out Cancer” but with a similar, slightly coarser word for “peeing,” from the pasted email for the system to allow me to post this topic :sweat_smile: )


Our own Mothercrabber Ross Bryant does things with Dropout as well.


OH MY GOODNESS I hadn’t put it together that he wrote for MST3K!! Wow that makes me so happy! :smile:
