Comedians Taylor Williamson, Joey Bragg & Betty The Chihuahua Set Comedy Podcast ‘Almost Alpha’

EXCLUSIVE: 7EQUIS, the creative team behind the comedy podcast Bad Friends with Bobby Lee and Andrew Santino, is launching its newest comedy series Almost Alpha with rising comics and long-time friends Taylor Williamson and Joey Bragg.

Almost Alpha is a comedy podcast hosted by two best buddies—and a 4.6-pound chihuahua named Betty, who keeps the guys grounded with her female pawspective as they discuss the most beta things in a totally alpha way.

“We are so excited to make people laugh and smile with us and help them forget about their worries in these crazy times for an hour every week… And to make them feel terrible for not being as alpha as we are!” Williamson shared in a statement.

“Woof” added Betty emphatically in a rare statement to the press.

“I wholeheartedly believe that what the world needs right now is love, patience and a hard reset. But I can’t do any of that so instead I decided to monetize my friendship and start a podcast,” Bragg shared.

Since launching Bad Friends with co-hosts Bobby Lee and Andrew Santino in February 2020, 7EQUIS has helped build the show to reach over 15 million monthly fans across YouTube and audio and toured 59 US cities with its first international tour on the horizon. The company is building a destination for up-and-coming comedy creators with the launch of the 7EQUIS YouTube channel and its newest show Almost Alpha featuring Taylor Williamson and Joey Bragg.
