Meet Our Readers: Kyle Thiessen

Kyle Thiessen emerges from creative hibernation every seven to twelve years, but is endeavoring to increase that frequency. Previous efforts include 2011's hastily-produced YouTube parody "Fake Month at the Museum," as well as a short film in 1999 that granted an invitation to the Golden Globe awards, where he peed next to John Lithgow. In addition to YouTubing and peeing, Kyle has spent his adult life as a caricature artist, an IMAX projectionist, and a corporate Powerpoint designer for a multinational conglomerate of high tech weapons systems- and golf cart-manufacturers. Until he fills the hole in his resume where "zamboni driver" should be, he'll be hard at work on the perfect Die Hard screenplay and occasionally tweeting @lazycartoonist.

Please join Kyle and our other fantastic readers on Tuesday, Aug. 4 at 7:30pm on our YouTube channel, youtube.com/TuesdayFunk! Cohosts Andrew Huff and Eden Robins and at least some of the readers will be on live chat during the show. Please RSVP on Facebook.
