    Just days after dropping a viral trailer for its first feature-length comedy, “Lady Ballers,” the Daily Wire announced its first animated scripted series, “Mr. Birchum,” created by comedian Adam Carolla.

    The teaser trailer, which was first screened at the “Lady Ballers” red carpet premiere, will be released before the premiere of “Lady Ballers” on Friday, December 1, 2023, at 8 p.m. ET exclusively on DailyWire+. “Mr. Birchum” features an all-star voice cast: Adam Carolla (Mr. Birchum), Megyn Kelly (Wendi), Tyler Fischer (Karponzi), Alonzo Bodden (Gage), Brett Cooper
    (Jeanie), Candace Owens (Deena), Kyle Dunnigan (Eddie), Danny Trejo (Switchblade), Patrick Warburton (Burly Man), Jay Mohr (Coach Murphy), Rob Riggle (Gunderson), and Roseanne Barr (Principal Bortles).

    “I am super excited to be working with my friends Ben Shapiro, Jeremy
    Boreing, and our terrific cast of talent to bring ‘Mr Birchum’ to life on the Daily Wire!” said Carolla.

    “Adam Carolla created Birchum back before Barack Obama killed comedy,” said Jeremy Boreing, co-founder of The Daily Wire. “Of course Hollywood wouldn’t make Birchum today because they’ve stopped making comedies altogether for
    fear of offending the ‘wrong’ people – so we realized we had to do it. We teamed up with Adam and some of the funniest people we know – Roseanne, Rob Riggle, Patrick Warburton, Tyler Fischer and so many more – to bring back the irreverent patriarch in a truly hilarious comedy that doesn’t care who it offends.”

    The series follows Carolla’s classic character, a no-nonsense junior high woodshop teacher. Popularized on KROQ radio and brought to life in puppet
    form on Comedy Central’s ‘Crank Yankers,’ Mr. Birchum has entertained
    audiences for decades. In 2024, the animated version of Mr. Birchum attempts
    to navigate a world he doesn’t understand or approve of. He’s befuddled by
    his gaming streamer son, Eddie (Dunnigan), annoyed at his selfie-taking, snowflake students and is constantly at war with the school district’s appointed “J.E.D.I.” (Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion officer) Mr. Karponzi (Fischer), whose feelings-over-facts style of administration is everything that’s wrong with education today.

    This is DailyWire+’s first animated comedy, produced by David Coleman for
    Daily Wire and Dallas Sonnier for Bonfire Legend, with Daily Wire’s co- founders Jeremy Boreing and Ben Shapiro and CEO Caleb Robinson executive producing. Chassy Media is the physical production Company for the show. Executive Producers for Chassy Media are Adam Carolla and Mike August along with Showrunner/Executive Producer Nate Adams and Supervising Producer Curtis Koller. Mike Lynch is the head writer for the show with additional episodes written by Byron Kavanagh and Mark Hoffmeier.

    Let's go Brandon!
