Former student’s T.V. series returns

Written by: Isaiah Smart

The former VSU student who created some silly, senseless park rangers and gained the attention of over a million viewers, will be returning his creation for another season.

Waco O’Guin, 38, will premiere the second season of his show “Brickleberry” on Comedy Central this fall. The upcoming season will have a total of 13 episodes.

O’Guin received a degree in digital media from UGA; however, he was a student at VSU from 1993 to 1994. He was also a contributor for the Spectator, where he did a comic strip called “Inebriated the Koala.”

According to O’Guin, succeeding in media is not the easiest, but persistence is key.

“Get used to rejection,” O’Guin said.  “I have a stack of rejection letters from every cable network.  Produce your own stuff and stick it on YouTube.  The more you produce the better you’ll get.”

“Brickleberry” is a 30-minute, light-hearted comedy that features executive producer Daniel Tosh from “Tosh.0.”

O’Guin and his friend, Roger Black, created “Brickleberry.” Oguin’s father-in-law, Woody, was a park ranger who took his job very seriously. Black often patronized Woody and called him a “tree cop.” A few years later, at O’Guin’s wedding reception, Woody put Black’s thumb in a “park ranger hold,” and they then decided to do a show about crazy park rangers. 

“My favorite part is getting to hear people laugh at what we’ve created,” O’Guin said.

O’Guin looks to continue “Brickleberry” for many more seasons. The show will air every Tuesday at 10:30 p.m. on Comedy Central.
