Utilizing multiple social media outlets via Al Gore's "The Internet," The Chubby Kids entertain using only the finest in Wi-Fi enabled devices. Passionate nonconformists and creative disruptors, The Chubby Kids are rascals, rogues, cowboys and alchemists who like to have fun, and by "fun" we "mean" steal "peoples" kind of funny ideas and make them slightly more funny only to claim it was our "idea" the whole time.

An accomplished stage actor and master of improv, Julian is a classically trained thespian and a street-born Golden Gloves boxer out of Detroit.

Give this guy a rubber band, a raw turnip and a page from "Hamlet," and the kid will spit out a pitch that tickles your fancy and nudges your funny bone. But don't tell him we like his ideas because we need him focused on our iPhones (they need upgrading and he's the only guy who can do it).
