Hey, I'm Kevin L.!

Mighty Healthy is a new take on the late-night talk show format. Meant to direct the conversation surrounding healthcare using comedy to challenge and critique the industry and corporations that mistreat its patients and practitioners of color, Mighty Healthy would inform the audience about news and issues that they do not see on mainstream media and spotlight those in the health space who are fighting for advancements for patients and practitioners of color (ex. Cancer Who? Cares, BLKHLTH)
The premise behind this show is inspired by The Larry Sanders Show, Desus & Mero, Random Acts of Flyness, and Last Week Tonight with John Oliver with a creative narrative mixed in for proper satirizing, er, seasoning. Focusing on health care problems that affect the Black-and-Brown community, Mighty Healthy uses humor to discuss, debate, and debunk topics of the day that need to be shared with our community.
Through this crowdfunding campaign, #TeamMightyHealthy's goal is to create jobs in television for creators of color, and having the "First Response Team of Comedy"(™) on the airwaves, delivering punchlines to those who are leaving folx on life support and without any solutions in sight. According to friends of the campaign like Kurt Farquhar (CW's "Black Lightning"), Liz Goldwyn (director, "The Painted Lady"), and Mary Pryor (CMO, Cannaclusive)—Mighty Healthy is a show that's "never been done before" and "needs to be on [TV] screens everywhere!"
#TeamMightyHealthy is excited to share this Seed&Spark campaign with you all in order to raise awareness about the show's goal and mission. Tell a friend to tell a friend to follow us on IG and Twitter, and support the project when we launch on Nov. 20th (11/20).
