If you haven't heard of Jake and Amir, you're not alone. Jake Hurwitz and Amir Blumenfeld first began writing their web show for CollegeHumor in 2007. In the show, Jake and Amir are coworkers at CollegeHumor and, in Amir's opinion, best friends. Jake is the sensible one, while Amir is always causing trouble. Most of the episodes take place at their desks, though occasionally they go on adventures outside of the office. The episodes range from 1 to 5 minutes. My favorite episode of all time, Twitter:
And here is another great clip, called Homeland.
So, why are Jake and Amir the next big thing? Well, after producing over 600 online episodes and one 30 minute movie, the two have signed on with TBS to produce their own TV Show! The show will be produced by Ed Helms (The Office, The Hangover). There is no announced date for the show to begin production, however CollegeHumor fans are very excited to see how these two talented actors translate their quick humor into a full-length show! Start watching their web shows now, because Jake and Amir are the next big thing!
