• Ricky The Rocket Ship Returns to TripTank!

    ricky macklemore

    Waaaay too long since my last update! A lot of new projects are on the horizon in various forms. The Convenience Store Diet pilot is complete and is making the rounds around town. And I’ve been doing a LOT of voice over lately. I also made time to go to Harry Potter at Universal Studios and it’s pretty dope!

    TripTank aired its last Ricky sketch last week. This one is one of my favorites. Ricky tries to use his magical, innocent charm to break up a gang fight. You probably can guess that it doesn’t end up all peaches and rainbows. It features me as Macklemore and as one of the gang leaders. I had the wonderful opportunity to acting along side the great Aries Spears and Tom Kenny. It’s pretty ridiculous.

    Special thanks to everyone who made this whole adventure possible. Who knew so many people would love a rocket ship who kills children! And thank you for watching it over the years!

  • New Voice Over Animation Reel

    Hey everybody!


    So many projects/things going on. Finishing up the Convenience Store Diet animated show, volume 5 of the comics, and also just recorded some games and cartoons. Figured this would be a cool time to put together a video animation reel of my voice over work for everyone to check out. Hope you’re doing well!



  • Greatest Party Story Ever now on MTV!

    I had the pleasure of directing a really fun story for a really cool animated show on MTV called “Greatest Party Story Ever!”  My sketch was called, “Vaminos Amigos,” the story about… eh, the clip does it better justice.

  • Animals premieres Feb. 5th @ 11:30p.m. on HBO!

    Last year, while I was acting on Like, Share, Die, I was also helping show creators Phil Matarese and Mike Luciano (with EPs Mark and Jay Duplass) as they made their show, Animals. We were getting two episodes ready for Sundance to premiere. I even voiced two random lines in there myself!

    Little did we all know that, a year later, it would end up on HBO!

    Animals premieres February 5th @ 11:30p.m. It’s a really funny show made by some really funny people with a really funny cast and an insanely talented group of artists. It’s about Animals in New York City. That’s about all I can say for now :)


    Super stoked to share this one with everyone! Hope you watch it! Here’s a sneak peak…

  • Blade & Soul Reaches 1 Million Players in First Week!

    Blade & Soul reaches one million player mark in less than a week!

    Last year I was in a game; it was one of my first big ones. I didn’t think of it as a big deal, as I’ve recorded games before. I went in, had a total blast with everyone involved as we had some fantastic record sessions, played some one to two dozen characters, and that was it for me.

    Then I found out the game was wildly popular upon its American release. A million people played it in its first week! How exciting! If you haven’t had a chance to check it out, here’s the trailer. It looks really cool and people seem to really like it! What do you think?

  • Ricky is Back!!!

    Season two of TripTank is back, and Ricky the Rocket Ship returns with three more adventures! Here’s the latest one:

    And… the guys at Bubble Blabber gave the sketch the top pick of the episode!

    Always a pleasure to work with Joel and the team! Great work everybody!

  • New Cartoons!

    Hey Everyone,

    Here’s a cartoon I starred in for Spindo a while back! I remember “my own flying theme music” was one of my favorite parts to record. Maybe if the show takes off, we can record the studio track of it featuring Bruce Springsteen and Sia.


  • Ricky The Rocket Ship Returning This Fall To Comedy Central!

    I’m terrible with updates. And math. But I know that when you add U and I together, you get UI, which is one letter short of spelling, “oui,” which means, “yes” in French. And I think you’ll want to say yes to another season of TripTank on Comedy Central.
    Yep! And according to this press release, my Ricky The Rocket Ship character that I created last season is coming back!
    It’s a happy hit to the feels to see our animated sketch series get promoted alongside the premieres of Nathan For You, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, South Park, and several other shows! Check it out!


  • Convenience Store Diet Kickstarter is Here!

    Do you like animated shows? Well then, I’ve got the show for you! It’s a show about a bunch of late 20-somethings trying to make sense of their lives. And along the way a dude gets jammed in the eye with a selfie stick. Check it out!

    Check it out!

    So far the campaign has been exciting. Many people have jumped on the cool rewards, like being drawn into the show and getting DVDs from celebrity friends!

    If you’re into comics, animation, and comedy, then this is for you!

  • Convenience Store Diet Kickstarter March 16th! Get Ready!


    I’m launching a Kickstarter for Convenience Store Diet on March 16th! So if you’re a fan of the comics or my work, prepare for a lot more craziness!


    When I started the comic, I was in my late 20’s and my 1/3 life crisis was looming. I felt like I was growing behind the times. I just got a smartphone and couldn’t keep up with the related culture. I still can’t. And I struggled between being satisfied with myself and not being satisfied with the changing world. I wanted to explore that artistically, but the comic wasn’t going to be enough. So I wrote an episode in which our characters Andrew, Kelly, and Craig realize they’ve fallen behind the times. They’ve ignored upgrading their lives and entering the smartphone age. But with that upgrade comes in the world of technological douchebaggery. And now that it’s all flooding in at once, they can barely handle it! The episode explores the ideas of growing up while being a grown up. And all of this with the evolving crass, in your face, hyperbolic humor you’ve enjoyed from me over the years.


    So far pre-production is done. What you see above is a still with the characters composited into one of the actual production backgrounds, as they would look in the show. Using an innovative animation system, the characters will move pretty fluidly and it’ll look cool! Not bad for mostly one dude in his free time.


    The goal now is to raise funds for the stuff I can’t do just solely do on my own in a reasonable time frame. Animation. Music. Mixing. Plus there will be miscellaneous costs as well. While network TV shows cost millions of dollars, I’m only raising 1% of that to get you a whole episode of an animated show!


    Rewards are going to be insane, too! I have celebrity guests coming to help as well as ridiculous/awesome rewards. I know Kickstarters can be overwhelming to some, so I’ll make it easy. If you donate you’ll get the show AND a PDF of comics. You’ll at least have some comics to hold you over while the project gets made! Higher rewards will include being drawn into the show, buttons, comics, a mystery box, and a ridiculous reward that I can’t quite mention yet. You’ll just have to wait and see!


    So please, on March 16th, enjoy the process with me! Here’s what you can do:

    1. Drop coin and get a cool show and cool comics!
    2. Share with your friends the Kickstarter and let people know you believe in this project and the talented artists behind it who deserve a chance to have their voices heard.
    3. Spread the word! I’m slowly getting better at publicity, but if you know someone with a cool blog, podcast, radio show, or have one of your own, let’s do an interview! I’ve got years of experience on 25 productions and no shortage of things to talk about.


    Thanks everyone! You’re awesome!
