Today is History

On this day (-2), in this very year, the editor of this cheeky blog received an email from a reader. Her name is Erica and she is a Go-Go dancer from Indianapolis.

Alright, that last part isn't true. But the site she asked me to plug for her "hysterical" cause is called indiegogo, so I thought, what the heck, go for it.

As it turns out, she is a comedian, so she's hoping her idea is hysterically funny, but it's really more historically funny, or at least it's about history. As it also turns out she likes the comical aspects of our little historical stories. It seems that our irreverent and occasionally chucklesome treatment of historical events is right up her alley because her small group of troupers is trying to achieve the same thing we are doing here at Cheeky History.

The venue is different of course. They are trying to make a pilot episode of a TV program to pitch to various producers so they can bring more people to the historical table using a little levity. And as we all know, the world's level of levity leveled off a long time time ago.

The show would be called "Today is History" and I haven't the slightest idea as to whether it will ever get made or not, but when it comes to new ideas, I'm pretty good at not having the slightest idea.

So if you want to find out more about the whole process, you can visit their fund-raising site. If she gets famous and successful she promises to mention Cheeky History to every single person she ever meets so we can be famous and successful, too.

Maybe they will even take out an ad on our site since I gave them this one for free to get them started.
