RADIO & TV PROGRAMMING EXECS: Zuma Dogg is #ThePeoples' media personality: "Brain-seizing, Legend, Heroic, Genius, Crusader, Civic Warrior, More Brilliant Than Brietbart, Treasure, Icon, Superstar, Multi-Media Presence..." Newspaper/Radio quotes about Zuma Dogg (Not just bloggers/fans...actual newspapers and radio stations.)

NOTE: Don't try to pigeonhole me, y''s an unseen, one-of-a-kind phenomenon; of multi-genre, performing artist excellence. Don't punish yourself trying to compare it to anything else. That would be a purposeful diminishment of my legacy and reputation, in whole, y'all. ;)

Zuma Dogg created the reality TV concept (inspiring all the Malibu kids who got shows you love to hate); and broadcast the first selfie-video, ever -- on his all selfie TV show.

* "Malibu celebrity" - Malibu Times (Do you KNOW what it takes to be considered a, "celebrity," in MALIBU, by the newspaper?)

* "Zuma Dogg, who is smarter than and knows more about city government than most Council members, has become something of an urban folk hero, skewering City Hall foibles and failures in his frequent public comment appearances broadcast on Channel 35. His campaign for mayor attracted a respectable number of votes." - Ron Kaye/

* "Venice performing legend and multimedia presence." - L.A. Councilmember (Venice district) Mike Bonin

After police tried to stop Zuma Dogg from taping the council deliberations, he railed against the big shots for months, slamming Garcetti as “Garshady” on his show and on his whistleblower blog.

* "Something between stunned and amazed. We''ve never seen anything like it. I like Zuma Dogg. He's a class act." - Los Angeles City Council President Herb Wesson

"Zuma Dogg" is a pop-culture/comedy character (like an "In Living Color"/"SNL" character); that became politically active, when City of L.A. banned amps on Venice Beach boardwalk. The rest is U.S. history. 

In 2006, Mr. Dogg became active in #LA City Hall politics, when City Council passed an ordinance banning amps on the Venice Beach boardwalk.   

ZD attended several hundred council meetings; to discuss this free speech issue (and then extending into a myriad of citywide issues). The meetings were broadcast on City TV with twelve airings a week; with ZD speaking throughout.   

Zuma was also a frequent caller on KABC/KRLA/KTLK/KFI, with several hundred, high profile calls, as a City Hall insider. (A familiar face and voice in L.A. media  market with top-of-mind awareness and huge street recognition.)  

Zuma Dogg eventually sued the City of Los Angeles, in Federal Court; and the judge ruled that L.A. City was guilty of breaking the law, in censorship of the public.   

City of Los Angeles had to change their shady rules, both on the Venice Beach boardwalk; and in City Council chambers, during public comment forums. It became a free speech issue that made local, national and international newspaper headlines. 


After years and years of speaking throughout the televised council meetings -- and all the calls into radio -- Zuma Dogg is a semi-household, brand name for watchdogg, political activism -- and hilarious TV street reality; as never seen. 

"Legend/Icon/Superstar/Brain-seizing artistry/Comedy Genius/Heroic/Warrior/Crusader/Treasure..." (News quotes on ZD)



ZUMA DOGG: Comin' straight off the #Venice boardwalk. L.A.'s real-life, "Wayne's World" ("legendary, cable TV superstar/icon"); turned free-speech/political advocate; and WINNER in FEDERAL court vs City of Los Angeles, when L.A. City violated ZD's (and everyone elses') civil rights at Venice Beach boardwalk; and then at the council meetings, during public comment, while addressing these issues. FREE SPEECH/CIVIL RIGHTS VICTORY=MAYORAL CANDIDATE, MR. DOGG: FEDERAL JUDGE RULES Los Angeles City Council Broke U.S. Law in Censorship of The Public.

The court GRANTS in favor of Plaintiff (Zuma Dogg) vs City of Los Angeles. Los Angeles City Council violated the law in censorship of the public." - Federal Judge Dean D.

I was not at all prepared for the brilliance of your show.

In all honesty I was absolutely blown away. It was the most fresh, funniest, innovative thing that I've seen on television in the past five years

You're a genius! When can we catch more shows? Do you have any of your old shows available?

honestly, you may have been the funniest person i've ever see. I was laughing so hard I woke up my girlfriend.

If i owned a big TV company your show would be on 24/7!! I have never laughed so hard for so long, it's awesome. Can't wait for the next one, me and my friends will be talkin about it for a week! lol...

How can I get a copy of tonight's episode? It was the funniest thing I've seen in years. Thank you.

I hope you know you have the best show in the history of the planet!

I was wondering if I could maybe get your Autograph...It would mean alot...I know a ton of kids at my skool that love your show too....They are always talking in your voice and going crazy..

It was so beautiful that I had tears in my eyes. Let's just say I was moved.

I think your show displays a VERY intelligent and socially conscience realistic view of the world and you do it in a very original and very artistic way.

I caught your last episode. Let me tell you that it was a Classic. The part about Elton John had me laughing all night.

Do you sell your music or dvds of your show? If not, you should. Your latest song is good as hell.
