John Edmonds Kozma is the CEO of Bang Productions, a media, entertainment, and production company. Kozma is the newest leader in comedy, known for upturning the industry with a new and unheard of approach with social media. Kozma uses social media as the foundation for his comedian’s wildly successful careers.
Bang Productions came to fruition in 2016, when he discovered Darren Knight, the fastest rising comedian in American history. Kozma took Knight under his wing and went on to produce Knight’s tour, the Southern Momma An Em Comedy Tour that has since sold out over 200 consecutive shows all across the US. In response to Darren’s success, Kozma produced and directed the documentary Southern Momma: The Darren Knight Story, which showcases Darren’s meteoric rise to fame.
Along the way, Kozma signed 7 additional comedians and within their network, Bang Productions has amassed over 10 million fans. With the new comedians on board, Kozma produced the Nitro Comedy Tour presenting Catfish Cooley and Andrew Conn. Since creating Bang Productions, Kozma has generated a unique business plan, making him one of the first entrepreneurs to organically gain a following by connecting with users through social media platforms. Due to Kozma’s great success with Bang Productions he has been featured on HBO: Vice News, has spoken at several colleges, and has developed a hefty following of his own where he shares his formula to success in the ever-changing comedy industry.
