Hello, v2 community! My name is Paul, I’m 24 years old (and a graduate student), and I plan on making content here on v2 as a new artist. I guess you could say I lived under a rock for three years because I didn’t even know what v2’s predecessor was until late 2016. I was sad that I missed the opportunity to post on v2’s predecessor but I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of v2!
I already have a number of scripts ready to shoot. Although I won’t post any material until v2 comes out, I will say that all the scripts I’ve written so far are based on my personal life. One thing you should know about me – and one of the biggest reasons I plan to be active on v2 – is that I still live at home with my parents, unfortunately. (I’ve had a ton of trouble finding a job in my area, but I haven’t given up hope yet.) My dad is what you call extremely out of touch and an authoritarian parent – and much of my content will focus on the challenge of being in my mid-20’s but still being treated as if I was 12 (or younger).
It might not seem all that funny in writing, but I bet you’ll find my content hilarious because I don’t think anyone else has done this sort of thing before. The best comparison to my content would be the type of comedy in the TV shows “Seinfeld” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” One script that I’ve written, which is a semi-true story (slightly exaggerated for comedic effect), involves me not being allowed to go to a party at a fast-food restaurant because my dad feels the restaurant is “dangerous.”
Anyway, I’m hoping for nothing but great things to come out of v2! My username will be @paullopez21 and you can find me on Twitter under that same handle. I’ll follow back whoever wants to follow me on v2.
