Welp, the Thugs, The Musical short film project is still plugging along. With just 45 days left, we still need your help to reach our goal of $10,000 and make this film happen. So far our cast consists of David Alan Grier, Margaret Cho, Rachel True and myself. So, I’m really excited to announce these three new cast members…
To donate or just check out the project, you can go to www.thugsthemusical.com and it’ll take you right to our kickstarter page. And keep in mind, if you donate, you get all kinds of cool gifts from the cast and the “Thugs” production, so everybody wins!
45 days and $5,130 to go! We can do this. Thanks for your support, everybody!

Consider this an early Christmonnukwanza and/or Festivus gift from me to you! 2 bits of news:
Thanks to our good friends at CASH Music, from this point on, EVERYONE who donates to the Thugs, The Musical short film project on Kickstarter.com, and EVERYONE WHO HAS ALREADY DONATED will get a free digital download of the film!
Just my little thank you to all of you who are keeping this project plugging along. We really appreciate it. And things are moving along with the film itself. In fact, very soon I’ll have some new casting announcements to make that I’m really psyched about.
We have 52 days left and counting to reach our goal of $10,000 (we’re at $4,550 as of now), so please spread the word to your friends (real or Facebook), tweet it, put it in your blogs, or make your own donation if you can. Which brings me to my 2nd tidbit of news:
That crazy-looking url for the “Thugs” Kickstarter page is a mouthful. So starting now, you can tell people that they can go to www.thugsthemusical.com to donate. It’ll bring ‘em straight to the Thugs, The Musical Kickstarter page! Easy as pie (or cake, if you prefer).
So now it’s that much easier to spread the word about this project. As always, thank you for your support, and stay tuned for more cool announcements about this film, coming soon!
And check out me and my Thugs, The Musical castmates, David Alan Grier and Margaret Cho discussing the film:
