Zuma Dogg is creator/inventor/pioneer of the non-scripted/hand-held camera, reality show (comedy/pop culture); then, became the most prophetic, recognized, respected and beloved, political activism legend in Los Angeles City history.
If there is a crowd of people (the public) and you need to entertain and inform them (get ratings) there is no one else in the world who can stun a crowd, and leave em smiling, with more proven success, than Zuma Dogg. A TRULY STUNNING and UNBELIEVABLE performing phenomenon, not to set the bar TOO high.
RESPONSE FROM FANS & PRESS:
"Zuma Dogg, not only one of the most recognizable figures at City Hall, cordially greeted by passersby, including security guards and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, he also has the ear of high-level insiders, who feed him information in the hope that he'll expose, and possibly stop, one questionable government project or another." - LA Weekly
"Andrew Breitbart, try as he might, could never illustrate the disjointed hilarity of #OccupyLA with the same brilliance, as Zuma Dogg." - LA Weekly
"Zuma Dogg fought the oppressive, tightly controlled L.A. City Council meetings presided over by Council President Eric Garcetti, who had banned video cameras. After police tried to stop Zuma Dogg from taping the council deliberations, he railed against the big shots for months, slamming Garcetti as “Garshady” on his show and on his whistleblower blog. "Whatever happened to free speech in this country?," Zuma Dogg asked. He prevailed against Garcetti’s rules, and now brings his cameracorder to every council meeting, as can any member of the public thanks to him." - LA Weekly.
