ABOUT THIS PROJECT
As a disabled veteran that struggles daily with major depressive disorder, I have found laughter more therapeutic than any medication the VA has prescribed me. Discharged is my Buddy Check that allows me to create “Homedy” (holistic comedy) for my brothers and sisters who may also be in need of more laughs and less xanax. ~Creator, Jas Boothe
Why laughter? Laughter is a powerful antidote to stress, pain, and conflict. Nothing works faster or more dependably to bring your mind and body back into balance than a good laugh. Humor lightens your burdens, inspires hopes, connects you to others, and keeps you grounded, focused, and alert.
More than just a respite from sadness and pain, laughter gives you the courage and strength to find new sources of meaning and hope.
All of our merchandise perks will be fulfilled by Veteran Owned Businesses.
ABOUT THE SHOW
After discharging from the military due to PTSD, Marine combat veteran Axel had given up on finding employment until he landed a multi-million dollar contract as a Hollywood Stuntman. Remembering his oath to never leave a fallen comrade, he employs his closest friends (Major, Jesus and Brandon) as part of his management team and they all head off to Hollywood in search of their next chapter.
But what looks like a smooth transition soon turns into a challenge as the shenanigans of the team prove difficult for their quiet suburban neighborhood and all of Hollywood to swallow. The fines they rack up in home owner association violations alone have been rivaled to the Mega Millions Jackpot. Insert characters: Axel, a serial monogamist who has made the word f#ck a household name and open carries his 50 Cal to the grocery store. Major, Axel’s bodyguard and former Military Officer who was convicted of but later pardoned for double murder. Jesus (pronounced Hey Zeus), Axel’s agent and an iron-jawed no nonsense ex-drill sergeant who is known for his uncontrolled outbursts and basic-training flashbacks. Brandon is Axel’s best friend, former Airman, personal assistant and the resident POG (person other than grunt).
Discharged places military veterans into hilarious civilian situations. Infused with dark humor, patriotism, pop culture and VA medication, Discharged will be an animated comedy about the 1%, that soon becomes the new animated series that the 99% tunes in to watch! What’s even better about the main cast is that they will be voiced veterans.
