DYNAMITE is an interactive sketch comedy channel championed by The Dynamite Sisters, Juliet Robb and Katie Folger.
We are currently headquartered in Austin, Texas, a city that celebrates independent vision and community creation with a down-to-earth, progressive flare— what DYNAMITE is all about.
WHO ARE THE DYNAMITE SISTERS?
The Dynamite Sisters are the bolder, fiercer, sillier, braver and more rascally versions of ourselves. When Katie couldn’t possibly imagine singing a cowboy ballad in the middle of a crowded restaurant, her Dynamite Sister self certainly could. And when Juliet wouldn't dance like she was the queen of disco in busy downtown Austin, her Dynamite Sister self didn’t bat an eyelash. These clowns are cheery, hilarious, vibrant beacons of leanin’ on your partner in the good and bad. Think Thelma & Louise with a little more funk. Lucille and Ethel with a little more spunk.
WHAT DO WE MAKE?
We make character-driven sketch content, long form narrative, and live variety show performance that's satirical, boundary-bending, and sexy .
We see the online channel as the modern variety show— each sketch, its own act! Tune into DYNAMITE and you may find a character-driven mockumentary series a la The Office, satirical sketch a la Key & Peele & SNL, slapstick like that of Buster Keaton, or a song and dance number that takes you back to I Love Lucy and The Carol Burnett Show. We’re inspired by a variety of comedic genres, giving Dynamite a flare that’s modern, classic, and timeless all at once.
But wait...Dynamite's more than just funny stuff. It's interactive, too!
That's right... we want you to create with us! We are thrilled to share what we love with you, and we want you to share what you love with US. Think fan suggestions, think live online performances, think Dynamite Sisters dares. We're pushing ever-further into the ever exciting frontier of storytelling and audience engagement. Stay tuned during our campaign-- you just might get your first of many invitations to the disco of creator, audience, heart, and honky tonk.
Get to thinking, pardner... WHAT MAKES YOU DYNAMITE?
HOW IT BEGAN
Katie and Juliet grew up in big, bad Texas. They met in theatre school at UT Austin, became quick best friends, and joked that joining forces in an artistic venture would be "fail proof." Upon graduation, this joke became a reality. They moved into a tiny apartment and envisioned a platform in which they could employ their wide range of talents as directors, writers, and performers; that was distinctly them and powerful; and in which they could get away with being the Tasmanian devils they truly are. They workshopped and shot their first material in New Mexico for five months before returning to Texas and launching Dynamite Sisters Comedy in May 2017.

Independently, Katie and Juliet have garnered great praise for their individual film and theatre work as actresses and writers. They are still in process with their first pilot, Las Leyendas de Dulce Vida, which was a finalist for the Sundance Episodic Story Labs With years of experience on stage and screen, they make work that honors their roots and can be performed live while also venturing into today’s frontier of drama and comedy, the world wide web.
