I’m a comic who’s been working in advertising since 2012, and Todd Spaulding is a brand strategist character I’ve been working on for a while.
He’s at his best shilling dream-like absurdity on the worst website on Earth: LinkedIn. His profile is here: https://www.linkedin.com/in/todd-spaulding-367047123/
On a personal note, Todd is a way to take the endlessly evolving wordplay and flimsy intellectualism of advertising and turn it into my favorite thing in the world: comedy.
In addition to being a vehicle for jokes, it’s a way for me to unwind and funnel all of the nonsense I encounter into something more liberating than mere stand up, which I also enjoy.
Also, one time when I was performing Todd live, a woman burst into tears when things got dark at the end. Success!
