Kent Nichols and Douglas Sarine have made a killing dispelling myths and enlightening online viewers of the complex idiosyncrasies involved in the lifestyle of  a mercenary highly trained in stealth and unorthodox arts of war.

Launched in November 2006, with its simple, likable, bombastic parody of Japanese super-assassins, Ask a Ninja (Tilzy.TV page) has garnered the LA improv comics a reported seven-figure advertising contract from Federated Media, a book deal with Random House, and a whole lot of fans.

Now, thanks to a new social networking site powered by Ning, all those who crave some digital interaction with their ninja-loving compatriots can sneak out of the shadows and into fans.askaninja.com. ###

Similar to MIX, the companion social network for popular pop culture show JetSet (Tilzy.TV page) that launched last May, Ask a Ninja Fans provides a space where “ninjas, and cool people, and hot chicks” can meet other fans, participate in forum conversations, and upload their own Ninjatastic videos within a neat-o branded player. 

There’s a reason Ning boasts of having created over 100,000 social networks. They’re an off-the-shelf networking solution that’s easily integrated into preexisting brands and provides fans with exponentially more ways to interact with whatever they’re fanatical about. They also seem to drive traffic. A day after Ask a Ninja Fans went live, the Ask a Ninja website had its most views ever.

I look forward to friending you soon.
