This Week In Web Videos: ’10 Hours of Walking in NYC as a Jew’
Scott Rogowsky is no stranger to the e-pages of our fine site. Just look here and here if you don’t believe me. And today, this column features Scott an unprecedented third time…but why? One cynical answer may be because Scott and I have the same alma mater. (That’s not the reason, though any humorous person from Johns Hopkins is a rarity who should be celebrated repeatedly.) No, the real fact of the matter is: Scott is one of the best I’ve seen at capitalizing on current events to create low-budget videos that get press. What impresses me most about Scott is not just that he’s funny, it’s his ability to find a unique take on issues he knows are top of mind for media outlets. That vision, paired with his DIY prowess and tenacity on the old QWERTY, has made him a repeated “viral” talking point and a role model for all those newbies wondering how they should splash onto the comedy scene. Well done, Scott. Well done yet again.
