This is turning out to be a big year for Wow! Creations Media founders Matt and Mark Harris, whose company and personal motto is “Anticipate Greatness.” The ultra-dapper and cheery twin brothers are known as the “Kings of Swag” among the celebrity crowd because they have hosted gifting lounges for the most prestigious events. They are everywhere VIPs gather. At Oscar time they are in Beverly Hills, and for the Kentucky Derby they are at Churchill Downs. From the Sundance Film Festival to the Canadian Country Music Awards, there’s always a parade of celebrities who beat a path to their luxury suites. They just have a knack for creating a fun and comfortable atmosphere.
Now they are charting new territory, wowing viewers who tune in A&E’s number one rated show Storage Wars. Last season Mark and Matt did a couple of episodes as expert appraisers, and the current season has them back for much more. They have been shooting the hit show for the past couple of months, and this time around they are showcasing their talents as buyers with humor and likable personalities. That was very evident on “The Kook, The Chief, His Son, and The Brothers” episode that aired recently. More great shows are coming up on the A&E schedule so check the listings.
“Filming Storage Wars has turned out to be a blast!” Mark told me. “In addition to that, we have our own online radio show called ‘The Tastemakers,’ on latalkradio.com. We like to talk about ‘the good life.’ We discuss fashion, style and the entertainment industry.” Mark and Matt are certainly well qualified since they have a wonderful reputation for great taste, and listen to the observations of their wives and children. Their recent broadcast had them talking about Justin Timberlake making pocket squares hip; Mad Men creating more of a demand for ’60s fashions; and the hottest trends in manicures from Jamberry Nail Shields. They are always interesting hosts, and you can listen to Mark and Matt live on Wednesdays at 12 p.m. (PST), occasionally bringing on a celebrity guest. Tune in for a great talk show.
Los Angeles natives, the Harris brothers founded Wow! Creations in 2004, presenting entertainment marketing and global strategy brand promotion. As industry veterans they travel the world hosting celebrity gifting events presenting the top vendors. They are at the Emmys, TBS Comedy Festival, TV Land Awards, the Grammys, Miss Universe, and William Shatner Charities, among others. They are gracious hosts and the stars love them. Mark noted that some of the celebrities they have enjoyed meeting include “President Bill Clinton, Prince Albert of Monaco, Michael Jordon, Quentin Tarantino, Donald Trump, Tim Allen, Kurt Russell, Gene Simmons, Eva Longoria, and so many more.”
Mark and Matt also keep busy judging beauty pageants including: Miss California, USA; Miss Nevada, USA; Miss Illinois, USA; Miss Maryland, USA; and Miss New Jersey, USA. The dynamic duo said it’s a great way to see the beauty of the country.
Knowing how much they are enjoying life, no wonder the Harris brothers are currently shopping around their own reality show The Kings of Swag and working on a documentary about their amazing lives. Good luck guys, we’ll anticipate greatness.
