Starz Digital Network

ShangriLlama’s very own Como T. Llama may be the most famous llama of all time, thanks to Starz Digital and Ambitious Media. Como was cast as a renegade cop and co-star of “Llama Cop” for Starz’ Internet comedy channel. Como even has his own IMDB credit! Here are the links to his show and publicity clippings. Don’t worry; fame hasn’t gone to his llama head–yet!



Como T. Llama asks that you watch his show. It will make you laugh! The episode titles are as crazy as a show starring a llama: “Llethal Weapon,” “Dirty, Hairy,” “Breaking Baad,” “Llaw and Order,” and “Die Hard with a Llama.”


This internet and TV tabloid-style show really liked “Llama Cop”–or at least, they enjoyed spinning creative stories from it. Please know that Como did NOT cause a health-code violation by attending his own Hollywood premiere party. He’s actually a therapy animal with a USDA license who works with autistic and foster children, so he can go anywhere!


Guess who got a feature story in the magazine for entertainment industry professionals? Como T. Llama, of course, with his co-star, the dreamy, animal-loving Walter Masterson.
