Popular Web TV Show Leaves the Studio for a Special Performance at ad:tech
Guests include Diggnation’s Kevin Rose, Gary Vaynerchuk from Wine Library TV, Dr. Tiki and Ninjas!
San Francisco, CA – Revision3, the leader in exclusive Internet television, is joining forces with international Web conference ad:tech San Francisco for a live taping of Web super-show “Internet Superstar,” on Thursday, April 17 at 4:45pm PT. The hit show, which offers a daily portrait of an emerging Internet star, will take over San Francisco’s Moscone Center with a rock ’n’ roll keynote that you’ll be talking about for years.
“Internet Superstar” co-hosts Martin Sargent and “Gator” will host four of the biggest names in internet video, and engage them in a wide-ranging discussion about how internet video is writing the rules of finding, watching and advertising on video programs.
The amazing lineup of Internet guests include:
• Gary Vaynerchuk, host, Wine Library TV – often called the Robert Parker of the Internet
• Jeff MacPherson, creator and star, Tiki Bar TV – the funniest and sexiest way to discover new drinks
• Kevin Rose, founder/chief architect, Digg.com, and host, Revision3’s “Diggnation” – the show that started it all, and still going strong almost three years later.
• Kent Nichols, co-creator, AskANinja.com, Beatbox Giant Productions, LLC – Ask a Ninja is only part of Kent’s story. Ask him about “Killer Tomatoes” too.
Anyone can come watch the episode live at The Moscone Center in San Francisco (although Ad:Tech recommends that you preregister online at http://www.ad-tech.com/sf/ for a free expo pass to ensure a seat). The episode will be available for streaming and downloading on the Friday after the live show at www.revision3.com/internetsuperstar.
“Just as cable TV did shows that would have been banned on broadcast TV, the internet is a wide open frontier of creativity. Shows that would never, in a million years, get picked up on cable are building huge audiences, delivering amazing results to sponsors, and recreating the rules of video consumption,” said Revision3 CEO Jim Louderback. “If you’re involved in making, buying, selling or sponsoring internet or television media, then you must see this show. It’s the future, on display live. Plus you’re guaranteed a few laughs and you’ll know all about our “secret” after party too.”
Created by Martin Sargent and his co-host Gator, played by Jay Speiden, “Internet Superstar” is “the greatest show the Internet has ever seen,” according to Sargent himself. Relying on its hosts’ grit and wit, the show is shot in a dilapidated shed in Martin’s mom’s backyard. Martin and Gator invite viewers into the shed as they interview the online world’s most popular, compelling and outrageous characters to swap stories about what life is like at the top of the online heap and dissect the ultimate Web question: what is life like as an Internet superstar? And how do I get myself some of that coin?
About Martin Sargent
Internationally adored farceur Martin Sargent has been delighting audiences for decades, and is currently host of “Web Drifter” and “Internet Superstar,” both on Revision3. At ZDTV, TechTV and G4TV he hosted shows including The Screen Savers and Unscrewed with Martin Sargent. Since then he has done several pilots for such television powerhouses as Comedy Central and USA Network, and hosted shows on the Internet as well as mobile phones. Sargent got his start in media as a plucky young editor at PC/Computing magazine, and it is generally accepted in publishing circles that the periodical shuttered its operations as a direct result of Sargent’s exodus to pursue television projects.
Gator is a hard-drinking drifter who was raised by an ex-con Seminole Indian named Starving Crow and now lives out of his truck in an abandoned lot in South San Francisco. He knows very little about the Internet and less about technology. His main job is to make sure Sargent doesn’t act like too much of a hotshot or get beat up by a guest. He has no knowledge of his real last name.
