Believing the best way to have your message heard is not always the most ordinary, the18-track album got the attention of the Bernie Sanders campaign. The first song,“Funktastic”, has a 70s vibe while “Center Stage” is about someone struggling to achieve their goals, then making it and reflecting.
“Center Stage is about reaching your goal, striving to overcome, and then looking back and having the feeling of OMG, I did it” — Marc Gordon.
The video for “Social Distancing” with Eugenia Kuzmina won LA Live Best Comic Video. The song focused on the pandemic, using toilet paper and hand sanitizer to interest a woman. Gordon is combining his extraordinary talents in comedy, music, andproduction to create a powerful message for mass visibility, attention, and a need for change.
Gordon knows that it’s time to do his part in bringing laughter, light, and understanding to the most impactful global topics of today. He’s inspired by a belief in inspiring change through collective action, and uses this outlook to create parodies that bring these topics to life. Gordon’s mission is to use comedy & music to create awareness, educate people, and remove that blindfold to the hard-hitting topics, concerns, and conversations.
