Lots of things coming soon in the wild world of Christian Cintron.
First up, my original pilot, Start Up will be performed live at iO West for their new show Pilots LIVE! It will be in the running to be produced as a web series. Woo hoo!
If you have been under a rock, or are one of the tons of people who don’t know who the eff I am, Start Up is my pilot based on my crazy experiences working for start up companies in NYC and San Francisco. Every new company wants to be the next Facebook and Twitter but oftentimes it’s just a bunch of knuckleheads trying to make work happen.
Start Up follows Joe Magro, a neurotic unemployed go-getter who finds what seems to be his perfect job – CFO at a hot new start up company. With co-workers like a gender-neutral granola eater, a chronically drunk cocktail waitress turned sales manager, a homicidal HR person and a bipolar Eurotrash CEO things soon degrade into utter chaos.
I’m also working on Absolute Cintron my completely independent, absolutely low budget comedy special. So many stand up comics wait years for their chance to get put in a special. After years of doing it, I thought, ”Fuck it! Why not try and put my stuff out there and see who bites?” So on a budget of -$50,000 and with a birdhouse in my soul I pulled some of my favorite Angelinos together and made it happen. And by that I mean I’m still working on it. It’s still in development but you can watch the trailer on my YouTube profile: CintronicComedy.
I’m also finishing up at Second City Hollywood in my graduation sketch show, The Geeks Shall Inherit the Earth through October 15th. It’s Mondays at 8 pm.
That’s what’s new with me. Where you been?
