One man will destroy the sad reality of beard stereotyping by cultivating every type of beard known to mankind.
Since 1998, John Dyer has been growing beards each winter. But his obsession has rapidly grown into a thick, fuzzy addiction. Mr. Dyer has amassed a wide, bristly swath of furry arrangements-24 of the coveted 34 possible beard configurations.
He has dedicated much of his personal blog to posts about how to grow a beard, beard folklore and MaBeGroMo, a beard-growing marathon that he declares during the month of December.
One after the other, Martin Sargent's shows-on television, on cell phones, and online-have been brutally cancelled. When his most recent effort, Infected by Martin Sargent, was axed by Revision3 CEO Jim Louderback, Martin finally cracked. At the show's final taping, Martin doused himself in gasoline and threatened to light his explosive-laden body on fire in desperate protest. Fearing a lawsuit, and that his fleece vest and perfectly coifed, John Edwards-like hair might get singed, Jim Louderback talked Martin down by promising him a new show, but with a major provision: except for the bandwidth, Martin will have to finance the whole thing himself.
And so, with his pal Gator helping out, Martin is setting out to create what he promises will be "the greatest show the Internet has ever seen."
Because there are no resources, and because Jim Louderback won't allow Martin to shoot it on Revision3 property, the show is shot in a dilapidated shed in Martin's mom's backyard. Most people think that like all of his other shows, this one is doomed to fail. But most people underestimate Martin's desire. His desire to become an Internet Superstar.
So join Martin and Gator as they invite the online world's most popular, compelling and outrageous characters into the shed to swap stories about what life is like at the top of the online heap.
What life is like as an INTERNET SUPERSTAR.
