About This Show

The story of one man’s sudden immersion into a culture of gold-plated hovercrafts and Google Platinum (the Google for rich people). When Chris is hired as the new Head of Social Media for Organitek, he discovers no one seems to know what his job is. Worse, he can’t even figure out what the global conglomerate actually does. Chris soon finds himself mired in a far different world than he could have ever imagined when he applied for a nice, quiet accounting position.

Mixing Seminars for the audience (Welcome to Your Future and That of Your Children Probably) and strong, funny narrative, this show explores the frustrating new landscape of America’s professional world, complete with workplace romance, YouTube diversions and cat memes.
