Mixer takes interactive media to another level by allowing viewers to watch and engage with their favorite games and streamers in real time. Backseat Comics fits the mold of the platform as it is an improv comedy gaming show where one player plays the most popular games currently streaming on Mixer while four comics riff on the action, dig on the storylines and crush on gamers. The interactive series will allow viewers to vote on their favorite comedians and the best players in real time using Mixer’s unique Faster Than Light streaming technology, as well as comment their thoughts throughout the episode.
The season is set to debut on April 13.
“It’s an absolute honor and joy to be working in the live space with Mixer and I’m sure the world will love what we cook up together!” said Comedy Dynamics CEO Brian Volk-Weiss.
A special episode will be showcased at the Electronic Entertainment Expo, which runs June 12-14 in Los Angeles.
Backseat Comics will be executive produced by Comedy Dynamics’ Volk-Weiss, Cisco Henson and AJ Tesler as well as Mixer’s Richard Winn and Edward Capuano.
