ZUMA DOGG - "Greatest Hits" (Aka: "Bigger Than Thriller")

MARCH MADNESS: This blog post represents 17 years of "The Zuma Dogg Show" on one page. Started off all comedy -- and when City of L.A. violated my free speech rights, as a Venice Beach performer, I got a tad political -- and it's all reflected on this page, and on YouTube. If you like the sampling of videos, got YEARS of watching, ahead. Like...,17 seasons of SNL; except funny and relevant:

"I've seen the future of television comedy. Zuma Dogg is the only American comedian today wearing the comedy-genius mantle once borne by Lenny Bruce, Allen Funt and Andy Kaufman." - Michael Heaton/Syndicated Columnist

The debut of Zuma Dogg was on Howard Stern! "A very funny comedian. We gotta get Zuma Dogg on the show!" - Howard Stern (He u can see.) 
ZUMA DOGG ROCKS FORUM! Check the crowd cheers! :)
COMEDY: ZD invented #RealityTV & #Selfies

REAL REALITY TV: Harassed by CBS TV Shoot=LOL!
"IT'S FUN TO SING LIKE STEVE PERRY": This L.A. cable TV segment nearly pigeonholed ZD as the, "Don't Stop Believing," guy. #CLASSIC

ALL ABOUT="Zuma Dogg Show" on

VENICE SPIRIT RADIO: To #empower your mind/body/spirit for fitness/nutrition/creative-spirit breakthrough results. Based on #NLP. Will be many people's FAVORITE ZD Show!

80's MUSIC RADIO: Capturing the feel of real 80's radio and clubs, as remembered by former Billboard Hot 100 Director; 80's music radio programmer; and creator of the #FlashbackFriday radio show, for 93Q/Houston & Z-100/NY, Zuma Dogg. A music journey through the 80's.
ZUMA DOGG: Comin' straight off the #Venice boardwalk. L.A.'s real-life, "Wayne's World" ("legendary, cable TV superstar/icon"); turned free-speech/political advocate; and WINNER in FEDERAL court vs City of Los Angeles, when L.A. City violated ZD's (and everyone elses') civil rights at Venice Beach boardwalk; and then at the council meetings, during public comment, while addressing these issues. FREE SPEECH/CIVIL RIGHTS VICTORY=MAYORAL CANDIDATE, MR. DOGG: FEDERAL JUDGE RULES Los Angeles City Council Broke U.S. Law in Censorship of The Public.
"The city that silences a critic will injure itself as much as it injures the critic, for the gadfly’s task is to stir into life the massive beast of the city, to rouse each and every one of you, to persuade and reproach you all day long.” - ‎PLATO. The court GRANTS in favor of Plaintiff (Zuma Dogg/Saltsburg) vs City of Los Angeles. Los Angeles City Council violated the law in censorship of the public." - Federal Judge Dean D. Pregerson (re: ZD's free speech/First Amendment lawsuit)

* "Zuma Dogg has been a community activist in Los Angeles for more than 10 years successfully taking on City Hall on numerous occasions."/City Watch LA

* "Zuma Dogg, who is smarter than and knows more about city government than most Council members, has become something of an urban folk hero, skewering City Hall foibles and failures in his frequent public comment appearances broadcast on Channel 35. His 2009 campaign for mayor attracted respectable numbers of votes." - Ron Kaye/

* "Venice performing legend and multimedia presence." - L.A. Councilmember (Venice district) Mike Bonin

"I like Zuma Dogg!" - Tim Conway, Jr./KFI

* "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.

* "Something between stunned and amazed. We''ve never seen anything like it. I like Zuma Dogg. He's a class act." - Los Angeles City Council President Herb Wesson
