Read information about the authorSparky Sweets PhD is the performance name of comedian - actor - writer Greg Edwards. He is the co-creator and host of the critically-acclaimed web series 'Thug Notes'.
'Thug Note's is an American educational web series that summarizes and analyzes various literary works in a comedic manner. 'Thug Notes' first aired on June 3, 2013, on YouTube, with the pilot episode centered on Crime and Punishment.
Explaining the usage of low-brow vocabulary and speech used by Sweets on the series, Edwards stated, "but the truth is, the gift of literature is universal in meaning and should be made accessible to everyone on every plane. So, 'Thug Notes' is my way of trivializing academia's attempt at making literature exclusionary by showing that even high-brow academic concepts can be communicated in a clear and open fashion."] The style used by Edwards' character was a result of "frustration with the world of academia".
Greg currently resides in Los Angeles and hosts the weekly free comedy show "The Workout Room" in L.A.'s Koreatown.
