About Us


We're just getting started, but we have a bit of a hit on our hands with PALACE INTRIGUE a daily short-form look at The Royal Family.  We started this one in December 2019 and then #Megxit came along and it's been fun watching this one rapidly grow.

DAILY COMEDY NEWS is a seven day recap of what is happening in the world of comedy. Hosted by John McDermott, John has been the host of LiveXLive's Weekly Comedy Thing since 2015, and ran SiriusXM Comedy for a decade before that.


So you're wondering, who are these guys?  The Shark Deck is a new project, so for now let's take a look at the body of work up until this point.

John McDermott ran Comedy & Entertainment for SiriusXM for a decade, moving to podcast company Cadence13 as EVP Programming, and is lead creative here at The Shark Deck.

These are some of the cool people and brands that trusted John with the keys.

Yeah, that's the cast of The Walking Dead at Comic-Con Radio.  And Key & Peele on Comedy Central Radio.  And Jamie Foxx with The Foxxhole...Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy's Blue Collar Radio... Monty Python's 40th Anniversary Station...and Star Wars Celebration Radio.  Sometimes it was just a normal day at the comedy stations and Jimmy Fallon would stop by...or maybe Bruno Mars just wanted to say hi to The Fonz.

On the podcasting side, our team members managed very important partnerships including Crooked Media (Pod Save America...), Pushkin Industries (Revisionist History...), Tenderfoot TV (To Live and Die in LA...), Sports Illustrated, Vanity Fair and more.  This was a great set of creative people to work with, helping them smoothly execute their creative visions.
