Does Your Job Suck? Why Not Make a Web Show?
Kim Waldauer and Robert Christophe are the duo behind Cube News 1. They live in Los Angeles and are part of the “I Do It All” movement — they write, act, produce…sew costumes, build sets… They have worked together as creative partners for years, collaborating on pieces for the stage, big screen, small screen, and those itty bitty cell phone sized screens. The Cube News 1 and The Adventures of Cubegirl videos have been picked as favorites by The Wall Street Journal, Time.com and Yahoo; Glamour Magazine named Cubegirl one of YouTube’s funniest of 2007, and they have been featured on the homepages of CNN, YouTube, Revver, blip.tv, Veoh, Brightcove, and JustForLaughs. The videos have been viewed millions of times and are consistently honored as a top viewed Comedian and Partner on YouTube. Kim was at a day job in a cubicle at a Big Corporation …which slowly began to suck the soul out of her…which began to depress Robert…who finally convinced her to quit, and then realized “your misery would be funny on camera” and Cube News 1 began. Early episodes griped about personal matters, but they quickly jumped over the cubicle partition as viewers wrote in with their own stories of workplace woes. Do you have a web series about your work place?
