I've spent the past 8 months thinking. Thinking about who I am, what I want to do in life, how I want to use my strengths to help other people... in between thoughts, like why didn't that asshole move when the light was green? and why am I the only one that can manage to refill the toilet paper int his place?
Once I sorted through it all, I came to a few conclusions. This is what I know for sure:
1. I want the bulk of my energy dedicated to creating things that make people laugh.
2. I want to collaborate with and help other people with the same goals.
3. I want to do all of this without "the man's" boot on the heads of the creatives that are making the magic.
Here's where we'll start
My ultimate vision is to one day have a comedy network that captivates the public's hearts and catapults comedians and other creatives into a positive, profitable position, ripe with opportunity. But, as a single mom working two jobs to get this thing off the ground, we've gotta start somewhere, and that's with content and awareness.
Right now, I'm focusing on developing and elevating the content of our existing shows while I find hilarious content from all over the world to feature on our site and social accounts as we grow awareness.
Since our goal is exposure, that's the currency model we're currently using - we get paid in eyeballs and followers. Once we start bringing in the cash, we'll upgrade our model to directly compensate the people who contributed to this glorious laughter machine called What the Beck.

If you're a comedian, writer or another type of creative, become a member and submit your bio and content samples for review. No offense to managers, agents, etc. but due to the nature of our mission, we work directly with all talent, no exceptions. There are way too many people trying to separate artists from their money, and we will never be a part of that.
If you have money burning a hole in your pocket, visit our support page to find out how you can help.
Thanks in advance to everyone that's helped thus far, and to everyone that will help in the future. This network is for you.
