"A weird life which turned into a great stand up routine, which then turned into a great sitcom"
Hi there! My name is Owen Alabado. I am the writer and creator of "Dudes". A show about a gay guy who hangs out with a bunch of straight guys. After my first play in 3rd grade where I played Santa Claus I knew I was born to entertain. After years of acting schools, Improv, teaching, stand up shows, musicals, plays, tv/film and commercials, I said to myself "Owen you need to create." So here I am, creating a show about my funny life. In my stand up I make fun of myself for being the Worst Gay in the USA. "Dudes" takes my life and turns into a hilarious sitcom for the masses.
It follows four guys from the Midwest who move to Los Angeles. One of the dudes is gay. The sitcom explores the oddities and hilarities of a friendship between a straight man and a gay man while also exposing the mental thought process of dudes in general, straight or gay!
The four dudes are the bestest of buds with strikingly different personalites. Each one is a mashup of the many straight best friends I have had in my life. One of our dudes is still very much in love with his ex-girlfriend Kyra, who was already in LA before they moved there. Enter my beautiful and talented friend Kristen Renton.
Each episode is guaranteed to make you laugh and have you begging for more of Josh, Franco, Cody, Harmon, and Kyra.
