Boyce Studio on Comedy Bang! Bang!
In my work, I have to do a lot of sanding. While sometimes sanding can be meditative, most of the time it's just boring. So, I listen to podcasts. A lot of podcasts. There are a ton of great ones out there, but one of my favorites is Comedy Bang! Bang! for 3 reasons: It's hilarious, it's long, and it's loud. When the shop is loud, even with my bluetooth earbuds turned all the way up, Fresh Air just doesn't cut it. I also watch the TV show on IFC, and I always noticed that the set design featured air plants and succulents and thought that my planters would fit into the set nicely. So I emailed the production designer Caity Birmingham my planters and hoped for the best. She got back to me right away and asked if I could have them done by Sunday, as they were starting shooting that Tuesday. This was on a Friday. I said SURE! and worked all weekend.
I was thrilled to hear that they used 3 of my planters on the set. One behind Scott:
One behind new bandleader Kid Cudi:
And one in the 2 wall, when they cut to someone else:
The new season premiere was last Thursday and I got to see the planters on TV, which was great fun. Kid Cudi is a great addition to the show and I can't wait for the rest of the season! If you would like to see a tour of the set and watch Michael Cera walk past the Wyatt Succulent Planter, watch this!
