All Cops Ain’t Bad:

The author, David Reuben, would like to welcome “All Cops Ain’t Bad” to The Comedy Green Room family.

I recently had a zoom chat with Daryll Triplett and Michael Williams two of the great people behind this charitable organization.

Their purpose is to bridge the gap between our cops and the community. We want to show the world that we are “only human”.

They also coordinate and provide support and relief to all current and retired First Responders with an emphasis on “Cops” and “Victims of Police Brutality”.

“All Cop’s Ain’t Bad” bring healing to our Communities and their families through comedy, counseling, peer mentoring, individually and in comedy concert settings, filled with lots of laughter and love.

The goal is to raise awareness through community events, media outlets, social media, service organizations and churches, screaming to the top of our voices that… “All Cop’s Ain’t Bad”.

The Man from Philadelphia:

A Kevin Christopher Movie: Coming Soon

The author, David Reuben, first met Mr. Kevin Christopher [Herod] in the early 2000’s. Like all great entertainers Kevin changed his surname! LOL Kevin was a young and hungry stand-up comic. Kevin was hitting all the open-mic shows and trying to get noticed. And noticed he did; Nominated for Second City Tim Simms Encouragement Award, moved up the latter of the Yuk Yuk’s Comedy Chain and got noticed by The Nubian Comedy Revue.

Recently I got the chance to reconnect with Kevin thanks to are mutual friend Mr. Roy Daye. Today he is an author, cartoon voice actor, musician, and producer. The Man from Philadelphia is Kevin’s new movie.

Extended Synopsis

The Man from Philadelphia is a story about a time when an entertainment business manager named Markus, is publicly fired from his role as boy band manager for the mismanagement of finances. Upset that he found these young men and transformed them into glorious performing pearls only to be discarded, Markus enacts a plan to bounce back with two new musical acts, one female model, actress, song bird and the other act being a rap duo.

As the quarterback of the two new musical act’s introductions to the world, Markus, played by Comedian Kevin Christopher, planned to have the rap group burglarize his sweet innocent R&B acts family-owned jewelry store, hoping the 6 o'clock nightly news catches wind of it and intern help boost sympathy publicity for his R&B act and maybe a couple of months gangsta jail time props for his rap group.

The plan backfires, the new acts flop on the same day he signed them, but Markus isn't one to keep things bottled up he's gonna talk and talk and talk it out poetically a'la Edar Allan Poe style with his fingers crossed for his win!
