My Damn Channel LIVE
, Posted on 3/26/2012 by
Katie Akana is the set designer for My Damn Channel Live and the creator of the fantastic menagerie you will see behind Beth during our show! She has worked on the IFC sketch comedy “Whitest Kids U Know,” MTV’s “Silent Library,” as well as the cult sensation “Fat Guy Stuck in the Internet.”
But enough of her credits… let’s get to some fun facts!
Katie is from Berkeley, CA. She lives in New York and has (for an NYC resident) an extensive taxidermy collection that started as set props and turned into things she just really liked to collect.
She is the only woman she knows that can life a ¾-inch 4x8 sheet of plywood.
She has two cats—Hank and Buster—and both of their images are parts of the set (look for them!).
Finally, she got into prop and set making while doing sketch comedy with her group “Machio” (formerly “Ralph”). Her cast member? My Damn Channel’s own Mark Malkoff!
