If you don’t spend a lot of time on YouTube you might not know Ed Bassmaster by name, but if you have been to YouTube even a few times, you have probably seen his work.  And you probably laughed.  So many people laugh and subscribe to Ed Bassmaster that he’s getting his own show on CMT.  He stopped by PHL17 as one of his characters, “Always Teste” to tell us about the new show.

Ed’s characters resonate Philadelphia because he was born right here in Philly.  Some of his characters like Teste and Tequila are exaggerated, or maybe NOT exaggerated, people that you can see all over the city.  Other great characters include Skippy, Girard Douche, a CIA agent, Swollen Man, Hacker, Mumbles, Bluetooth Man, Ugly Face, Bushman, and Zombie face.  He uses many of them to prank unsuspecting people in our area and his videos are as memorable as they are unique.  If you have never been to his YouTube channel– go.  Thank us later.
