Jake Fogelnest

Jake Fogelnest is…hmmm…is King of Media too strong a title? I mean, it’s accurate! He spends his days as a DJ for Sirius XMU hosting Alt Nation. He spends his evenings performing and directing at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York City. He spends his weekends yelling at tweens on his Stickam show. And he finds time between all that to be hilarious on Twitter, help run the “lol” tag on Tumblr, and make memes explode. So yes, King of Media is correct.
