Jake Hurwitz and Amir Blumenfeld are the writers, actors, and editors behind the award-winning webseries Jake & Amir, which began while the pair were writers at College Humor. Besides its immense popularity online, their series also appeared on television on MTV's The CollegeHumor Show.
Musician Ben Sellick joins us to discuss a very serious topic: how to LOVE the taste of that plain, flavourless, dull–as–dirt clear stuff we all love to hate -- water. It's a wild ride, and the improv gets, shall we say, a little BLUE (ha ha). But don't worry, we still manage to reference M.
We've got a real banger this time! "Impressario" Paul Little joins us to talk about writing metal lyrics. And we don't just talk about writing -- we write an entire song during the episode! We take a real hard look at society and expose the dark underbelly of... LISTS.
Are you a jock? A prep? Whatever the heck a "scene kid" is? Do you want to be? Actor/improviser RobYn Slade joins us to teach you how to reinvent yourself over the summer.
We're back after a little Fringe-induced hiatus! This one of our longest episodes yet, for learning one of our shortest skills: how to eat six saltine crackers in ONE MINUTE.
Steady... steady... that's it, make no sudden movements... If you're one of our *cough* THOUSANDS *cough* of listeners who tune in during their daily commute, then you're in luck.
Comedian Cathy Herbert joins us to talk about the mysterious world of "Horse Whispering." We'll answer many of your questions: how to approach a horse, what diploma programs to enrol in, what shape of pen you should build, and, of course, how to keep your taxes in order.
Actor and human Daniel Chen joins us to explain how to make people believe you're a "robot in disguise", to coin a phrase. How should you speak? How much trivia should you know? Is it okay to make jokes and be sarcastic? Jesse bleeps and bloops, Thomas explores his emotions, and Dan draws several blanks, but bounces back strong.
Improvisers Jonathan Kornelson and Colin Ward join us for an episode that all of our fans have (probably) been clamouring for: How to Become a Civil War Corpse! We cover all the tricks, from planning your death screech to getting the spectators involved. Jesse ponders time travel, Thomas and Jon spar over accuracy vs. entertainment, and Colin's rigged up a pulley system to heaven.
A long time ago, in a recording studio far, far away, two people delivered the freshest, most on-point analysis of the Star Wars prequels you've ever heard.
