No one can deny that Youtube shows are getting more and more popular. So popular in fact that Youtube decided to put on the Digitour, a national tour of some of Youtube’s most popular musical acts, which made a stop at the Chameleon Club in Lancaster on April 29th. Featured at this stop of the tour was Barely Political’s popular song parody series The Key of Awesome. We were fortunate enough to talk via phone with writer and performer for The Key of Awesome, Mark Douglas.

Mark and Anastasia DouglasMark fills us in on what the Digitour is and how it may be changing the game for Youtube musical acts to take their show on the road. He also shares how he made the transition from stand up comedian to parody song writer and performer as well as the process of making The Key of Awesome videos.
