Mayor Andrew Gillum Taking The Pedicab For A Spin At The Longest Table On FAMU Way

Capital City Pedicabs has been Tallahassee’s Pedicab company since 2013. We had our humble beginnings in Midtown where Axios Salt Spa and Juice Bar currently resides and catered to the late night crowd to get them home safe after last call. From that store front we booked our first wedding. Over the years we have evolved from late night bar runs to green transportation event support. You can catch us around town at events to help get around. We have done a number of weddings, birthdays, festivals, concerts and more over the years. A few years ago we started operating on FSU Campus and in the city parks as a great way to help people get around and enjoy what those areas have to offer.

What made you want to get into acting?

Ironically enough, I never grew up wanting to be an actor. I remember one day during summer break from college, I was watching a TV show and was extremely immersed in the story and drawn in by the actors. I realized that these actors were real people with real lives. With their gift of acting, they were able to captivate and entertain. This realization stuck with me and I was filled with a desire to be like them. If they could do it, why couldn’t I?

How would you explain acting to those who would want to pursue it?
This business is a MARATHON not a SPRINT. Many people get caught up on these “overnight” successes and don’t realize that some of those actors have worked tirelessly for years. You have to visualize exactly what you want and you have to go for it without any doubts. You have to be committed no matter what anybody says. In terms of actually acting, have fun with your character! Mentally and behaviorally transform yourself into that person.
What’s the craziest thing to happen on set?

Crazy things are always happening on set, however, one moment that comes to mind is when I was prepping for a scene and the director approached me with a chocolate cake and essentially told me I had to gobble down the entire cake for the scene. Chocolate is my favorite flavor…let’s just say that it was the most glorious scene I had ever done. It was truly a ‘piece of cake’.
How has the industry evolved over the years?

One of the most powerful things to affect the industry has been accessibility. Just about everyone has access to the internet and thus better access to casting calls, networks, news of current events, and ways to submit for roles.  
What’s next for you?

I am fortunate enough to have received a Master’s degree in Psychology. This degree has helped me take on unique perspectives for different acting roles. My desire is to continue utilizing my skills for greater growth as an actor. I’ve had the opportunity to demonstrate to others that anything you set your mind to can be accomplished.

How did you get into being a comedian?

I started doing stand up comedy in college. I wanted to be an actor for a while, majoring in theater and stuff like that. I thought comedy might help me break into acting. But since then, it’s taken on a life of its own. Now acting and comedy are kind of my two equal pursuits.

What do you want visitors and locals to know about being a comedian that they may not already know?
I can’t speak for all comedians, but I’d like people to know that we aren’t always in comedian mode. So don’t be disappointed if we’re weird or shy or quiet when you meet us. Then again, plenty of comics are super goofy and hilarious all the time. I am definitely not one of those comics. I’m more quiet and reclusive off stage. But I respect the comics who live life as a comedian. It seems exhausting.

How has the industry evolved over the years?
I think the big obvious change is how quickly things come and go, especially as the internet is becoming such a gross ADHD wasteland. The rise of the viral video has changed the landscape of comedy. One dumb video you put on Facebook can change your life. As opposed to perfecting a craft for twenty years, there are plenty of other ways to get attention now. Social media has changed comedy in such a huge way. I actually just read a book about comedy writing, but it was from the mid-eighties. And while some basics of humor will always be the same, the pursuit and availability of comedy is so different that the book didn’t make sense anymore. Also, I can’t read. So that didn’t help.

How did the “Ryan does” tour videos come about?
The first one I did was on Hollywood Blvd, which is a block from where I live. I thought it’d be funny to do a character that was super excited to be there but was also incredibly stupid. It’s just kind of a character my friends would laugh at. Endlessly upbeat, but super naive and ignorant and illiterate. So I filmed that first video making an ass of myself in Hollywood, then got home and went to upload it to my computer, and realized I had been holding my phone vertically the whole time. So I had to go back the next day and film the entire thing over again. Then when I posted it, a friend told me to make it “public” which I didn’t realize was a thing. So I did, and it had a lot of success, so I decided I needed to do some more. I pitched the video to Funny or Die and now I’m working with them to make more videos.

Where did “holy snopes” and “you gotta be joking my ass” come from?
I like to tack the word “ass” at the end of people or things. Instead of “When is Jack gonna get here?” it’s “When is Jack’s ass gonna get here?” I’ve just always found that funny. It wasn’t a planned thing, but when I started recording the Hollywood video, it just seemed like something weird that character would do. So “You gotta be joking” became “You gotta be joking my ass.” Then “Holy snopes” was something I said one time like a year ago that made my friend laugh. So I brought it back for this character.

What’s next for you?
I do stand up regularly in LA and around the country. I’ll be in a Netflix original series called “American Vandal” which is set to premiere September 15th. And I’m gonna keep making these weird videos until I get sick of them.

What social media do you use?

I’m on Twitter @ryanoflan, Facebook @ryanoflanagancomedy, and Instagram @ryanoflan. I tried Snapchat but that one is for the kids.

Learn About Tallahassee Lemonade Day!

What do you want visitors and locals to know about Tallahassee lemonade day that they may not already know?
What people may not know about Lemonade Day Tallahassee is that, even after three years, we are STILL the only city in Florida to participate and the next nearest city is probably Jackson, Mississippi! There are no cities at all in Georgia!

How has Tallahassee lemonade day grown since it started?

Since it got started, Lemonade Day Tallahassee has grown almost three fold! The first year, we had about 25 children register for the free training with about 16 stands opening on Lemonade Day that year. In the second year, 2016, the Health Department reinstated the requirement that each stand would need to purchase a $50 permit in order to operate so instead of growing from year 1 to year 2, the number of stands that opened that year actually decreased! Luckily, there are so many more people that are apart of the Lemonade Brigade and they were able to get permits waived from the Department of Agriculture, the Department of Business and Professional Regulation and the Department of Health! Yay!

How can people be a part of Tallahassee lemonade day?

It’s easy to participate in Lemonade Day Tallahassee! All parents (or any loving adult) has to do is go to https://tallahassee.lemonadeday.org and create an account to register any children they want to participate! The training materials are FREE!! There is a separate, additional registration to be an official Lemonade Day Tallahassee lemonade stand; that link is also on the Lemonade Day Tallahassee website, near the bottom where it says ‘Stands.’

What’s next for Tallahassee lemonade day?

Next for Lemonade Day Tallahassee is the addition of a co-City Director, Prof. Kenyatta Rosier. She is amaaaazing at creating experiential events so definitely look for the town to painted yellow for Lemonade Day Tallahassee 2018!

What social media does Tallahassee lemonade day use?

Find us on Instagram and Twitter! We’re @tallylemonade and our Facebook page is Tallahassee Lemonade Day!

Catching Up With King Complex!

What has king complex been up to since we last spoke?

Cody: We’ve been arting all over the place and it’s actually starting to get pretty disgusting.

Bracher: Lots of gigs and that sort of thing. Working on some new ideas and gearing up for the next phase.

You have played in Tallahassee and are about to do another show here. How has the vibe been here so far?
Cody: It’s been great! We have a lot of great friends in the area, and meet new ones every time we’re in town for a show. The energy of people there is contagious.

Bracher: Yeah it’s always felt like a homecoming of sorts and is something I look forward to every time we book a show there. The vibe is always cool and we’re always excited to show everyone how we’ve evolved since the last time. Not to mention it’s a college town so everyone is usually down to party.

What makes a king complex show stand out?

Cody: We blend all of your senses into a smoothie and then help you drink it.

Bracher: We try to make it a well rounded experience. We want to appeal to as many of the senses as we can and from what I’ve gathered we’re getting closer to accomplishing that. 

You’re about to drop your second album. Tell us about that and what it has taken to get to that point.

Bracher: I think it’s a really interesting but organic evolution from the last release. I think we really refined some of the things we attempted to do on the last record and wrote some really good songs. I’m not sure how much I can say without giving it away but I can’t wait to get it out.

Cody: I couldn’t be more excited about the next album. I really feel that we’ve really put the most feeling and thought into it compared to anything that I’ve been a part of before. I hope that it puts the listener in a place where they can truly escape from their everyday life and then return to it feeling renewed.

What does the future hold for king complex?

More music, comic books, music videos, photos, custom napkins, silverware, a dank ass cereal, and our very own brand of dish soap.

Where can we find you on social media?

Facebook, Instagram @kingcomplexmusic, Twitter @kingcomplexband (for the real important stuff)

Meet Stephen Jiwanmall!


What brought you to Tallahassee?

Everyone thinks it was for school, but I was offered a job at WTXL ABC 27 in April 2015 — and I’ve been here ever since.

What made you want to get into journalism?
I’ve always loved writing and telling stories. Seemed like a natural fit as I went through high school and college.

How has the industry evolved over the years?
Fewer hands on deck means more responsibilities for reporters. I’m a reporter, videographer, editor, writer, fill-in anchor and social media hound — all in one.

What has it been like being a part of WTXL?
Wonderful! The communities of north Florida and south Georgia have been welcoming, and my colleagues encourage me to work hard every day. It’s been a blessing to start my television career here.

What’s the craziest thing that has happened for/during a story?
I spent an entire night outside doing a special report on youth homelessness. It ended up getting me a state award for reporting, so it paid off!

What social media do you use?
Facebook and Twitter (professionally)

Instagram, Snapchat and Swarm (personally)

Describe being a reporter in 5 words or less.
Resiliently searching to inform citizens.

What Is Pedicabbing All About Anyway?


Capital City Pedicabs has been Tallahassee’s Pedicab company since 2013. We had our humble beginnings in Midtown where Axios Salt Spa and Juice Bar currently resides and catered to the late night crowd to get them home safe after last call. From that store front we booked our first wedding. Over the years we have evolved from late night bar runs to green transportation event support. You can catch us around town at events to help get around. We have done a number of weddings, birthdays, festivals, concerts and more over the years. A few years ago we started operating on FSU Campus and in the city parks as a great way to help people get around and enjoy what those areas have to offer.

Pedicabbing in general is quite a ride, no pun intended. It is a great way to stay in shape while making some extra cash too. You never know who will hop in. We have had local politicians, reporters and musicians use our services. It is more than a ride, pedicabs are an experience. Anyone can take a cab or uber/lyft, but there is something about the open air pedicab that sets it apart. The beauty of being a pedicabber is that you make your own schedule and are not waiting on a paycheck. You get out there as your schedule allows and that can lead to booked events. You typically rent the pedicab from the company and keep anything over the rental.

Capital City Pedicabs is about more than just us. We firmly believe that it is about being a part of the Tallahassee Community. Whenever there is something going on, we try to be there. There are a number of ways to be a part of the “Tallahassee Pedicab Revolution”. We have our blog, “pedicab pit stop” interview series and unique advertising opportunities. So don’t wait to be a part of something great. Here’s to keeping the good times rolling for many years to come!
