WHY AM I HITTING YOU UP?
I think we can make amazing content together and produce some hilarious bat-shit crazy skits that not only target Iranians, but people from across the globe.
A NICHE THAT IS STARVING FOR NEW CONTENT
There is a giant empty hole, waiting to be filled with comedy and creativity that speaks to Iranian Americans and global Iranians who grew up outside of Iran IE The generation of immigrants who left Iran after the revolution who dont watch Iranian satellite TV Manoto or GLWizz
Currently, much of the entertainment and comedy that is available to Iranians still focuses on old tried and true techniques. These techniques provided lot's of value to the generations that came before us, and current "FOBS" that are fresh out of Iran. However todays generation of Iranian Americans are ready to hear stories and jokes directly from Iranian Americans more closer to themselves.
WHAT'S THE SHORT TERM GOAL?
- Create a series of sketches, parodies, and mockumentaries with comedians, influencers and actors across the globe.
- Tell the types of hilarious stories that the more conservative Iranian channels wouldn't dare touch.
"Hajifeerooz goes to a BLM gathering" - "The dark side of Maz Jobrani" (Wayne Brady Chappelle Skit) - Game Show Skits
- Think "key & peele" with a dash of Iranian charm. We're not telling stories FOR Iranians we're telling stories BY iranians and making fun of the world through an Iranian lens.... and yeah we will also make fun of Iranians. We want to make these skits as accessible as possible and the internet let's us do anything.
- Build a channel and eventually gain enough traction to get paid sponsors and one day eventually funded and produced on a grander scale.

COMEDY IS KING
With all of the depressing news on TV, there has never been more
need for comedy than now. Comedy is currency and it's stock price continues to skyrocket.
A PARTNERSHIP WITH THAT CAN GROW INTO SOMETHING FRUITFUL
This potential partnership can provide you a new outlet outside of stand up comedy to get your thoughts and ideas out in the form of comedic skits and parodies, with ownership and stake and potentially pay off in a huge way once we get advertisers, sponsors, and investors involved.
-Create and produce a small skit together and see how well that goes.
-See how well we work together and see if this is something you may want to pursue
- You can be as involved as you want and I will cover the rest on my end.
