Kid President’s infectious giggle made the leap from digital to TV, when the Hub Network (now Discovery Family) ordered 8 episodes straight to series of the talk variety show ‘Kid President: Declaration of Awesome.’ Shot primarily in Kid President’s bedroom/cardboard Oval Office, the show features comedic segments and celebrity appearances including Jamie Foxx, Michelle Obama, Gene Simmons, Kevin Costner, Christina Applegate and Craig Robinson.
In one episode Lake Bell even helps Kid President face his fear of calling a girl on the phone! But most importantly, Kid President: Declaration of Awesome contains a serious amount of silliness and gives out ‘Medals of Awesome’ to kids and grown-ups who are changing the world and giving people a reason to dance.
On an episode about the topic of ‘identity’, Kid President throws a surprise party for Ms. Flexer, a retiring teacher who worked in the same school for 41 years. The field piece segment was also posted digitally where it went viral and Ms. Flexer ended up on the ‘Today Show.’
If ‘Kid President: Declaration of Awesome’ was a math equation, it would be best described as ‘Heart + Fart = Awesomeness.’ The show has won a Parents’ Choice Award (Gold) and was nominated for an NAACP Image Award.
