ALSIP, IL and LOS ANGELES, CA – Big Dog Eat Child, a comedy company formed by 8 close friends from Chicago’s South Side is now a featured channel of the Machinima Network. Machinima (youtube.com/machinima) is the largest entertainment channel on YouTube boasting over 109 million subscribers, 4,500 channels and an astounding 27.2 billion views. Big Dog Eat Child (youtube.com/bigdogeatchild) is one of only 10 featured channels picked by Machinima from their network of 1000s.
This puts the Alsip based comedy company in the same spotlight with other wildly successfuly comedy channels such as RoosterTeeth (creators of Red Vs. Blue), Action Figure Therapy and Nerdist. With over 8.7 million views and a growing subscriber base of over 12,000, the Big Dog Eat Child channel is in a great position to release more hilarious content and expand its reach. Big Dog Eat Child will be creating new webseries and “viral one-offs” (stand alone video marketed to become very popular) for release this summer to welcome their newly acquired fan base.
The Machinima Network primarily serves gamers who are hungry for video game related content. Their content includes promotional trailers, game play walkthroughs and original comedy webseries based on popular video game characters. They recruited Big Dog Eat Child as part of their strategy to expand their entertainment offerings for their massively growing audience. The members of Big Dog Eat Child have also been recruited as directors for Machinima and will create video game themed videos that will be featured directly on Machinima’s uber-popular channel.
The comedy company (whose members include Pedro Castro, Ramiro Castro Jr., Brian Fox, Jim Gainer, Danny O’Dwyer, Jason Nisavic, Brian Avery and Matt Witkus) is best known for two webseries available on their channel now, Jones Big Ass Truck Rental and Storage starring Robert Hines and Twenty Something Ninja Turtles, as well as several viral one-offs, including their manic music video “What Up Little Kid“.
Company members Pedro Castro and Ramiro Castro Jr. are now based in Los Angeles.
