Ep 11 - Comedian, Filmmaker, Journalist and Sometimes Politician - Travis Irvine

Travis Irvine is a comedian, filmmaker, journalist, and some times politician. Travis’s films focus on documenting the political reality facing everyday Americans and absurdist political comedies that use extreme metaphor and physical humor to deliver messages of humanity winning over all threats, including killer raccoons. As a journalist, Travis’s man on the street interviews have been used by Vice, The Guardian, and many others major media outlets. Travis’s stand up comedy focus’s on his own campaigns for mayor of his hometown and governor of Ohio.  

Travis talks about making his first feature film as an undergraduate student at Ohio University (Racoons! Bandits of the Night), navigating New York City as a working young filmmaker, journalist, stand-up comedian, graduate student in the master’s program at Columbia’s School of Journalism, and then making Killer Raccoons 2: Dark Christmas in the Dark, set to be released Christmas 2019.

The music used in this episode comes from the soundtrack of Postales. Available on Vinyl from Colemine Records, Spotify, and iTunes
