There you’ll see a lively array of characters hanging out at The Lounge, a funky, way-off-the-Strip Vegas style nightclub. It’s the kind of place where either up-and-comers start their careers or has-beens are found trying to reinvent themselves.
Stand-up comedian Danny Ganzano has hit rock bottom, landing at The Lounge. Barb Schlotzky, the owner, has hired him to help rebuild the place by bringing in new blood. Danny employs the help of talent agent Bootzilla and a host of strange, weird and downright crazy characters in this off-beat little show bar where odd and outlandish is taken for granted. From a wannabe mobster, an aspiring broadway singer, a real killer chef and a four-armed bartender, The Lounge characters have discovered the recipe for out of the ordinary.
The style of The Lounge is a hip, retro 50’s look and feel reminiscent of that cool Rat Pack vibe. You almost feel like Frank, Dean and Sammy might show up at any minute, grab a martini and belt out a number or two. The scenes are created in a 3D environment, with the characters drawn in a 2D “cutout” sort of fashion that gives it a unique style all its own.
With the success of shows such as The Simpsons, South Park and Family Guy, The Lounge keeps up the tradition of these highly stylistic, clever and hilarious cartoons that will keep the audience laughing from start to finish. As other adult-oriented animation programs such as Adult Swimare leading the way with young men aged 18-34, The Lounge is geared to sweep up that audience as well as other important demographics.

AMERICAN FIGHTER (n): One who overcomes against all odds, one who never gives up, a person of character who does not accept defeat.
Everyone is fighting for something. Some are fighting to overcome an illness; others are fighting to overcome poverty, injury, grief or other bad situations. In the greatest game…the game of life, come the greatest challenges. When everyday people are challenged by life they have a choice: Let life and the situation that is in front of them knock them out…or stand up to the challenge, answer the bell, and fight.
American Fighter chronicles the fight of everyday champions and the quest to win their fight and overcome. There are 3 million people in America, there are millions of stories to tell and life fights to watch unfold. What are you fighting for?
American Fighter does more than tell the stories. Host Rich Franklin, three-time middleweight Champion in the Ultimate Fighting Championships, guides us through each fight and each battle through the eyes and the being of our American Fighter.
Joe Garvey: At age 14, Joe Garvey was already considered a star athlete. He excelled in basketball, football and his favorite, baseball. He and his coaches had aspirations and great expectations for the coming years. Then, the dream ended with a tragedy. A near deadly ATV accident broke Joe’s spine in half leaving him motionless. Called a “sitter” by his surgeons, told that he would never walk again, Joe set out to prove them wrong. After months of intense physical therapy, self-motivation and the support of family and friends Joe stood up and took his first steps. Now, at age 21, Joe walks with the assistance of crutches and small braces on the lower part of his legs. He attends college and holds a part-time job at the DMV. Joe has reached a plateau in his fight. He “answered the bell”, but must continue the fight.
