Exciting news! Teachers Lounge just won Best New Comedy Web Series at the Cynopsis Awards! Jim Gaffigan also took home Best Guest Appearance in a Comedy Web Series for his role as the Nutritionist on our premiere episode!

We aren’t big on awards, unless of course we win. Going two-for-two was very cool and Hollis and I are incredibly grateful to everyone who has supported the series, especially Thundershorts who helped produce our series. These awards are shared with all of you! From Thanksgiving week through the end of the year we will be sending out all the kickstarter rewards to thank everyone who donated to our project.

What exactly is Teachers Lounge? It’s an award winning web series I co-created with Hollis James. We raised $50,000 on kickstarter to self-produce the show. I play the music teacher, Hollis plays the janitor and amazing comedians guest star as faculty.
