The name name started it all; with a word like 'HippoJuice' how can you not create a comedy podcast and YouTube channel? That’s exactly what Nathan Aarom, Royce Lopez, Ryan Lopez, John Sanzari, Jason Heilig, and Marie Sarkisian did in 2004. 

We started out humble – one small handicam, iMovie editing, and stories that were rough around the edges and unprofessional. But with every new idea, we got bigger and better, with inspirations like the Lonely Island, Tim & Eric, and Weird Al. We eventually got better cameras, lights, microphones, computers, software, and a green screen!

Our projects got more ambitious over time. We started out with video improv, then moved onto writing scripts, music, then hosting a podcast.

The HippoJuice live comedy podcast is always evolving. We have guests come and go, phone interviews, video and audio bits, contests, and whatever we can imagine (or our listeners for that matter!)
