Now in its 33nd year, “A Christmas Carol” dramatic reading will be performed by Joe Plummer Jr., founder and director of ‘Gotta Kid To Feed Productions,’ a digital media company, and Therese Plummer, an actor and award winning voice over artist living and working in New York City. Both are the children of Joe Plummer Sr. of Delaware, who performed the readings for the first 30 years and recently retired.
Joe Plummer Jr. has been creating smart, expertly crafted video content for brands and individuals for a long time. After cutting his teeth in network television (truTV, Food Network, HGTV) Joe decided to create a digital media company that let him create the kind of work he liked most -- so he headed out on his own. Excited to see how the web based media world was exploding Joe began to create his own brand of comic content designed to engage viewers and drive traffic organically. In their first year Gotta Kid to Feed Productions and their creative team has been able to secure an official Webby Award nomination as well as significant press placements for both their content and brands. Joe currently has two full comedy series in production, as well as the viral web series Real Actors Read Yelp.
