Founded Kidko Entertainment in 1990. Originally called Kidko Management, the company managed and trained amateur boxers. When one of those boxers wanted to have something to fall back on, acting was his option. Financing his acting classes, then finding him an open call audition, the young pugilist landed a role in a feature film about underground boxing called "Gladiator", which starred Brian Dennehy and Cuba Gooding Jr. (Not to be confused with the Russell Crowe, Roman epic of the same name) Kidko negotiated his deal, securing him a lead role. Working to land this boxer/actor two more feature roles, the company hung up its boxing gloves and became a representation firm for acting talent, writers, and directors. Talent at Kidko have landed roles in studio produced feature films, as well as independent projects, television series, HBO features and acclaimed series. Looking to expand, the management was changed to entertainment, and in creating a production division, began producing their own, low budget, independent features. Entering the world of sketch comedy as well as theater, Kidko plans to continue its growth in the coming years, becoming a complete entertainment/production company.
