Tiffany Razzano Goes In Depth with Tampa News Force for The Free Press

“About five years ago, Tampa-based stand-up comics John Jacobs and Josh Santos began making short, funny videos together.

“Just interviewing people at events like (Tampa Bay) Comic Con,” Jacobs said. “You know, just talking to people about anything.”

They discussed formalizing their work under the name Tampa News Force, even creating a logo for the planned satirical news outlet, but they didn’t officially launch the project until one night about two-and-a-half years ago when they were driving home from an open mic. While driving through their neighborhood, they passed a house fire with numerous police cars and other emergency vehicles parked out front and decided to stop.
