The CollegeHumor Show - Jake Hurwitz - Netflix
Jacob Penn Cooper “Jake” Hurwitz (; born August 5, 1985) is an American comedian, writer, actor, and member of the comedy duo Jake and Amir. He was hired by the comedy website CollegeHumor after becoming an intern there in 2006, and has written and appeared in original videos for the website, as well as contributing articles which have been published both online and in print. He also starred in The CollegeHumor Show, an MTV sitcom that ran for one season in 2009. Outside of CollegeHumor, Hurwitz has hosted Myspace's BFF series. He is best known as the comedy partner of Amir Blumenfeld: the two appear as humorous and exaggerated versions of themselves in the web series Jake and Amir, with Hurwitz generally assuming the role of the straight man. Originally made as a hobby by the pair, the series is now produced by CollegeHumor. Episodes of Jake and Amir average over 500,000 views; by 2012, over 500 had been produced. The pair have also hosted numerous live shows, and started the advice podcast If I Were You in 2013. Beginning in April 2016, they announced the streaming of their new video series, Lonely and Horny, exclusively on vimeo.
The CollegeHumor Show - If I Were You - Netflix
On May 13, 2013, Hurwitz and Blumenfeld announced their first new project since Jake and Amir: a comedy audio podcast called If I Were You, in which they give advice to listeners who submit questions. Kayla Culver of The Concordian lauded the podcast as “comfortable to listen to” and “genuinely funny” and said “It's like listening to two best friends having a hilarious conversation on the couch next to you.” The Guardian's Miranda Sawyer called If I Were You “a typical example of a comedy podcast” and “amiable enough”, but said it contained “far too much laughing”, commenting that “New Yorkers Jake and Amir laugh and laugh, giggle and chortle their way around a topic” and “if I wanted stream-of-consciousness waffle with the occasional funny line, I'd listen to [my small children].”
