Cam Collins - Executive Producer

Cam Collins was a local New York City woodwind player who has performed for several broadway shows, some off-broadway shows, jazz recordings, circuses, military protocol bands, and elite bar mitzvah ensembles, to name a few. His parents wouldn't allow him to attend music school unless he had a back-up plan. Due to increasingly poor life decisions and a recent disastrous tenure with a broadway tour, he is currently unemployed enough to be living his back-up dream: to produce a comedy podcast with someone nobody knows. While it may seem like a stretch for a one-trick-pony to try to launch a major production like this, he would like to reassure you that he has absolutely no idea what he's doing. Cam would like to thank his parents, his dog Tater Tot, and Nate Patten for always raising the bar and/or getting him to one.
