Hey friend! I'm Will Schoder and I spend most of my time making videos. My hope is that my videos help you feel a little happier. If that happens because you learned something new or you laughed or you felt a little more connected to people, then I consider my job fulfilled.
A little more background:
I studied history and theatre at Hamilton College. In 2014, I moved to New York City to pursue a career in comedy and entertainment. Since I was a kid, being a comedian is all I ever wanted to be. Here were these people who could elicit tears of laughter from a group of strangers. The best of them did this while offering a profound worldview. So that's me in short. I want to make you laugh, free you from concern (at least for a little while), and help everyone feel a little more connected to each other.
Video essays on philosophy, history, and culture with a tinge of humor.
My Other Projects:
People of New York (Instagram)
Giant Selfie Stick (Instagram)
Sketch Comedy Podcast (Defunct as of 2016)
It's the only reason I can keep making videos. The channel is supported entirely by Patreon.
All patron money goes toward my projects. Into equipment, software and, most importantly, time to research, write, film and edit. When I create content, it can take up to two months of researching, writing, planning, filming and editing to get a video done.
Every dollar given to these projects frees me up a little more to focus on making the best content I can.
I don't have a strict schedule. I try for one a month, but varying subjects require varying production times.
Yes. THANK YOU. I cannot do any of this stuff without you. I want to foster a community around my channel. If you have any questions please comment on my videos. I will do my best to answer you.
