Hi, we're Trent Troop & Greg Sepelak, and we mock things with puppets.

The Isle of Rangoon is a web series about Sunny Jim and Starchibald, two hapless creatures from the titular Isle of Rangoon who riff, review and rampage through the rusty detritus of popular culture. The Rangoons riff shorts and movie trailers, review movies and star in sketches, showing the world through Starchibald's nebbish, neurotic gaze and Sunny Jim's relentlessly optimistic and oblivious stare.

The series is a few years old now and it is a great hobby, but right now we're a bit hard-pressed to make it more than a hobby. We'd love to spend more time on it and really crank out the comedy, but between day jobs and pay freelance work, performance and video production often has to take a back seat. By becoming an Isle of Rangoon patron, you'll be helping us get better equipment, props, puppet-building materials and, most importantly, time to work on the series.
