My name is Dominic Russo and I grew up just over the Golden Gate Bridge, near San Francisco, but I live in Los Angeles now. I was once a roadie for Barbra Streisand, and separately but possibly thematically related but I doubt it, I was a professional Italian baseball player. I used to make bro-comedy web-series for the Internet back when writing bro-comedy web-series for the Internet was pretty cool and I was twenty-three years old. I created a web-series that we sold to Comedy Central called Workaholics. I currently have two small children with plans for exactly zero more. Before kids, I was cool and lived on a sailboat. I will tell my kids about how cool I was, and am, for the rest of time.
I am a hands-on creative who loves to make things. I could get philosophical about God and Banksy or whatever, but ultimately I have a need to make interesting stuff with cool people, much like how Maverick and Goose had a need for speed. I love comedy because it's where our societal fringe hangs out and I gravitate to their rebellious spirit to call out "the man" for a laugh even if it means getting slapped on the wrist. All of this rebel worship flies in the face of me not actually being badass. I love writing and creating in a way that can push boundaries and humorously comment on our sometimes very ridiculous world.
I am currently in development on a few television/streaming projects, as well as working with marketing agencies as a freelance creative.
