YourTrumanShow | Jim Carrey Inspired Real Life Big Brother TV Channel


In 1998’s The Truman Show starring Jim Carrey, viewers followed every detail of the scripted existence of one Truman Burbank. The real life Big Brother had never-ending twists and turns, but are all real lives just as interesting? YourTrumanShow thinks so.

The site provides a platform for anyone around the world to share the drama of their lives through the medium of video, with users are encouraged to create a whole TV series based solely around themselves.

Featured examples include Keaton creating his first music album, John on his skateboarding hobby and Brian the chef inviting us into his hotheaded world – utterly mundane on the whole, but strangely compelling. There’s even a chance, YourTrumanShow claims, that using its free service could gain you instant celebrity status.

    Freedom of speech, That’s just what we kids of today need now more than ever. It’s kind of overwhelming really when you think of all the media that bombards us on a daily basis. My main goal here is personal development and interaction with interesting people from all over the globe. I am a stand-up comic as well so I can work on my act this way.
