Director Statement

Creating Wigs alongside my co-creator Richard Mattox and being able to work with such a talented cast and hard-working fun crew has been one of the biggest highlights of my career. We had small tight crew and only three days to shoot. I relied heavily on my documentary and reality tv background while directing to keep the action moving and the actors loose.

Being able to expose audiences to, as Virginia puts it, "real heroes of American history" like Frederick Douglas and Dolley Madison and doing so in a comedy like Wigs is also rewarding. Nowadays, people look at historical figures and feel stuffy even thinking about them, but when we can shine a light in their direction and use laughter to keep people interested, like Drunk History also does, then maybe people will find themselves doing a quick wikipedia search on Frederick Douglas and discover a new hero.

I credit the professionalism of our cast and crew in the success Wigs is sure to garner. This is a true passion project and has already given me back so much through the laughter, smiles and applause that audiences have so far responded with. I look forward to being able to share Wigs with new crowds all over the country.
