Allen Watson, July Member Of The Month


"When I was informed that I would be recognized as July Member of The Month, I was taken by surprise. It is a humbling experience to be recognized for just “doing what you do.”

As a life-long Philadelphia resident as well as a comedian and actor in Philadelphia, I remember the days when Philadelphia entertainers were performing for audiences all over the world. I remember shows like Dick Clark’s American Bandstand, Captain Noah, Al Albert’s Showcase, and “Dancin On Air” just to name a few. Philadelphia was and is overflowing with talent, and I wanted to showcase it again.

The best decision in my life was to stop and walk into the doors of PhillyCAM. Since walking through the doors, I have taken Express Studio Class, TV Studio Crew, Production Planning and currently I am in Basic Field Production Class. I have assisted on over 20 separate productions. And I am poised to start taping my very own talk/variety show, showcasing Philadelphia’s very talented entertainers. Again, I couldn’t do it without PhillyCAM.

Thank you PhillyCAM for pouring into me and allowing me to pour into others."
