Friends Night is a collaboration between artists, writers, designers, editors and producers. We just built an animation studio for FOX Broadcasting and are executive producing a block of animated shows that will air on Saturday Nights. Past projects include work with Odd Future on creating the sketch show Loiter Squad (Adult Swim) and Golf Wang, a book of photography. This site is brand new as of July 2013 – we’ll be posting news and more content weekly (and a weekend reading list every Friday if you’re bored) so check back in soon.

Earlier this year, Friends Night led by Creative Director Ben Jones, collaborated with Diane Martel and Miley Cyrus to bring the BANGERZ tour to life. Our favorite part was when our 70 foot inflatable geometric striped neon monkey face hit the stage. The show’s in Europe right now, back in the USA by August.
