Sci-fi, comic books, movies, video games, cartoons; it all gets tossed around by the 6-headed hairy hoard of Black Tribbles.
The crew - creator/producer Len Webb aka Bat Tribble, Ariell Johnson aka the Uncanny Tribble, Kennedy Allen aka Storm Tribble, Erik Darden aka Master Tribble, Randy Green aka SuperTribble and Isaiah Luck aka Super Saiyan Tribble - has revealed untold stories of geek history, showcased new and upcoming projects, and engaged in thought-provoking conversation on a culture often lacking a Black perspective. of a black influence, all with a irreverent tone that delights as it educates.
A hot item heard regularly on G-town Radio, 900am WURD and WHYY/Newsworks (2011-2016) which brought the show Streaming Media Project of the Year honors at the 2014 Philadelphia Geek Awards and saw them named ‘Most Valuable Philadelphian’ at the 2015 Philly Give & Get Ball, the Black Tribbles made the move in 2016 to FM radio and the PhillyCAM confines of WPPM 106.5fm. The respected troupe won the Collaboration Award at the media company’s inaugural Cammy Awards in 2017. In 2018, the Tribbles debuted their first foray into television, Tribbles After Dark, on PhillyCAM’s television network.
The highlight of any Tribbles’ show, interview or live event is when they invite their guests and fans to name their own ‘Tribble Designation’ and take their place in the Tribble Nation by reciting the Tribbles’ whimsical oath of allegiance. It’s the community of fans that sustains the Black Tribbles in their quest to unite everyone under one coda - “Too Cool to be Geeks, Too Cute to be Nerds; we are Black Tribbles”.
