It’s Thursday and as we reported earlier, Fred’s new show Figgle Chat is up and officially live on YouTube today. The first episode of the weekly 3-minute talk show features our favorite Barack Obama impersonator Alphacat (Iman Crosson) as the first guest in the kitschy basement set with Fred (Lucas Cruikshank).
“We’re shooting the show in his basement which is kinda weird but Rob [the show’s producer] said that’s where all good talk shows start,” said Fred about the modest premiere. Upcoming guests are for whatever reason being held back from the public at this point. The series is a joint production by The Collective Digital Studio and Cruikshank.
Interesting to note, the last 30 seconds of the 3:21 show features a trailer for Fred’s Fred 2: Night of the Living Fred on Nickelodeon, which premieres in October on the network. So, anyone wondering what many in the comments are wondering (WHY?), that may be the answer. So far it’s tracking at about 70% “Like” and 30% “Dislike” on YouTube for the first ep.
