I have a confession to make. I was one of the KevOnStage Studios subscribers that was upset that Here’s The Thing left the app November 2022. To be fair, it was the only ongoing show that updated weekly. Since the yearly subscription is a better deal, I paid for my second year up-front. Although What’s Good, Crafts & Cocktails, Real Comedians Challenge Show, and Coming To The Stage are my comfort shows, I’m only going to rewatch them so many times between seasonal shows like Love On Stage. That is why I am happy there’s more original content for Kevin and Melissa Frederick’s black owned streaming service. It felt like the app isn’t being abandoned in favor of Patreon.
I understand the appeal to abandon ship. Patreon is a third party service that content creators can use to share and live stream content with their supporters. Supporters pay for tiered access to the content with monthly/annual subscriptions. Whereas Kevin and Melissa Frederick, as well as, their business partners must directly pay staff to maintain their streaming service. That’s not including production cost for set, talent, craft services, and so on. Thanks to their commitment to producing accessible black content, I’ll have to update my Top Ten Shows To Watch On KevOnStage Studios
If you are not a subscriber, I recommend checking out the site. This way, you can explore the content without downloading the app. However, you can’t watch content without a subscription. The monthly subscription is $5.99 plus tax and $49.99 plus tax a year. Why not sign-up for a 7-day free trial this weekend?
