Every Thursday morning Jensen Karp brings our attention to something that we may not know about yet or something we may have overlooked in the past. 

Now it's time to "Get Up On This."

This week Jensen got us up on a very funny new Comedy Central TV Show, The Other Two. A sitcom TV show about 2 adult siblings, Cary and Brooke, trying to make it in New York City. Their lives are turned upside-down when their teenage brother ChaseDreams becomes an internet sensation overnight and now they are forced to deal with his new found internet fame.

It was created by former Saturday Night Live head writer Sarah Schneider and Chris Kelly. It stars Drew Tarver and Heléne Yorke as the siblings (Cary a struggling actor and Brooke a former professional dancer who is now homeless). Case Walker plays their 13 year-old brother, ChaseDreams a teenager who made a Youtube video called I Want to Marry You at Recess, and he is now blowing up in a very Justin Bieber-esque way. The cast is rounded out by Molly Shannon who play’s their mother and Ken Marino, an unsung hero of comedy, who play’s Chase’s Douchey manager.

The Other Two, is a reference to the older siblings that have to deal with the realities of life as they struggle to make a living while they watch their younger brother make $20,000 for an Instagram post. At one point he goes on the Today Show and Kathy Lee and Hoda Kotb interview him and they end up bumping Kerry Washington for Chase.

If you’re a fan of 30 Rock or The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt you’ll love this show it has a similar multiple jokes per minute ratio. This show does a good job of walking a thin line between hating millennials and also making you laugh at them as well. Bean co-signs and gives the show high praise, “Terrific show, I wasn’t at all interested in the premise… but it’s so well casted and so funny and may jokes per minute."
