Hi there! My name is Insane Ian and I do comedy songs and music videos about pop culture stuff like TV shows, movies, comic books, and of course video games, and I've been doing so consistently since 2008.

My songs have been featured on Wired's GeekDad, The Onion's AV Club, and the legendary Dr Demento Show, where for 2015 I had the #1 song for the year with my single and video for "Benedict Cumberbatch".


As some of you may or may not already know, I try to release at least one song a month on the comedy music website TheFuMP.com aka the Funny Music Project. What you also may or may not know despite that, I also tend to write and work on MANY projects at a time. Between several themed EPs, a planned comedy rock opera, and an eventual fourth album, Reviewsicals (my video game review series using comedy songs), plus a few cover albums and of course music videos...I've got a lot planned.

That's where Patreon comes in. While my releases in the past have usually just been singles with an eventual video, I'd like to get more used to releasing a song and video at the same time (unlike the THREE YEARS it took to release the video for "DiG DuG"). Now granted, the first few videos I have planned are actually more like "catch up" videos, ie: videos for songs already released. I put out a double album in 2014 and had practically no music videos from it, so I'd like to be able to go back and produce a few for the songs I feel were pretty stellar and could benefit from the visualization.



As a Patron, you'd be able to get to see these videos before anyone else. I'd like to do one video a month at first, building from the simplistic videos to the more higher-budget efforts. As more Patrons help out, the better the videos will become and you'll see the progress with access to my Patreon-feed. Patrons will also be able to see these videos exclusively via Patreon first, with higher tiers getting behind the scenes videos, commentary on the songs, and more. Plus, once the backlog of videos is done, there will be new songs and videos packaged together, exclusively to Patreon first.

Thank you all for your support. With your help, I can keep bringing my brand of nerdy whimsy to the masses and help elevate my production quality to truly bring that comedy to your faceholes properly! Woo!
