My name is Eric DaSilva and before any of this, I was primarily a stand up comedian and a dad to two kids, currently ages 14 and 10.
Long story boring, a bedtime story I made up for my kids when they became bored with their usual bedtime stories, slowly became stories their friends wanted to hear about too. So what started as just a bunch of ideas, started to become an actual thing.
My whole life I've only been able to tell my kids a basic idea of what I do on stage or when punching up a script. But with this story, it's become the thing that my kids and I really boned over. We've created, nerded out over our favorite kinds of stories and saw an idea become reality.
