Decepticomics’ Own Mike Brown & Dillon Stevenson Bring Their ‘Super Video Bros.’ Show To Brooklyn
Comedians Mike Brown and Dillon Stevenson are producing a live show called Super Video Bros. where they celebrate and joke about music videos.
What happens when you take two of the hungriest, most down-to-earth, legit funniest black men in New York City and put them in front of camera?
Sheer #BlackExcellence and exceptional diasporadic comic hilarity.
Decepticomics’ own Mike Brown and Dillon Stevenson are bringing their collective talents to Brooklyn to produce a live show for their Super Video Bros. television pilot. Taking place exclusively on Saturday, March 31, at Union Hall — these charismatic characters are hoping to add another element to the culture critique genre by doing what TRL failed miserably at doing: make watching music videos entertaining.
For those who are just getting familiar with this tandem, allow us to spotlight these funny voices of the East Coast. Brown has been seen everywhere and then some, as he made himself super-comfortable at places like TruTV and MTV. When he’s not making audiences around Gotham bust out at the seams from laughing, you can catch him talking videogames, movies and sports on his Twitter @YoMikeBrown.
Dillon Stevenson might look awfully familiar to our @Okayplayer readers. The improv performer and comedy writer was featured in our Faces of Black Twitter series a few years back. Since then, he’s demolished stages at Broadway Comedy Club, Gotham Comedy Club and has hosted shows, events and parties using his wit as a weapon to chase corniness away. A student of Upright Citizens Brigade, Dillon is a masterful improvisationalist who has written, directed and performed in sketch shows off-Broadway. Peep his upcoming announcement of his “HBO thing” by following him on Twitter as well @TheDiLLon1.
With tickets for the pilot out now (at the modest $8 a pop in advance, $10 at the door) — this inaugural look at Super Video Bros. will feature special guests Sydnee Washington (TimeOut NY), Franchesca Ramsey (Comedy Central) and Jamilah Lemieux (InteractiveOne). We suggest you get these now, wear your Saturday night’s best and bring your cast as we guarantee you’ll bust a few funny bones.
