About Me

Filmmaker, Photographer, Artist.

Charles Dewandeler wants to entertain you. Born and raised in the suburbs of Metro Detroit, he grew up on a healthy diet of Disney cartoons, Saturday Night Live, and movies directed by Charlie Chaplin, Mel Brooks, and Steven Spielberg.

In 2008, Charles moved to Los Angeles, CA, not knowing anyone in the entertainment industry and starting from square one. Within a few short months, Charles landed one of his most enjoyable gigs - editing the hit standup comedy show “Martin Lawrence Presents 1st Amendment” for the Starz network.

Inspired by Mel Brook's satire movies, Charles directed his own feature film “Parody Movie” and release it on Amazon Prime and Tubi. Shortly thereafter he launched the YouTube channel Spoof Troupe. This allowed him to produce sketch comedy videos in the style of “Saturday Night Live", amassing over 38 million views online.

Never losing his fondness for comic books, he wrote the first issue of "MotorCity Saint" inspired by Detroit's real life superhero who visits kids in hospitals. He also wrote "Ghost Wranglers" about a team of southern ghost hunters.

Meanwhile, Charles continued writing screenplays (12 in total) and has since turned 3 of them into novels, including the supernatural/thriller "Black Ice", the romantic comedy "Upon A Time", and the action packed "Frank Kennedy: Operation Freedom." He wrote a book about the history of superheroes in pop culture called, "Superheroes, Their Movies, And Why We Love Them." He also created and wrote the children's book "Dallas DoGood: Goes Swimming".

To date, Charles has directed over 100 YouTube videos and short films, the feature film "Parody Movie", and edited several TV shows. His most recent credits include season 2 of “The Kindness Diaries” for Netflix and an episode of “The Wall” for NBC.
