Proud member of the Broadway Video family, the people who brought you Saturday Night Live, Late Night with Fallon, Portlandia and 30 Rock, Above Average is an online comedy network that brings different voices together with the same mission: to make high-quality stuff that makes you laugh. What kind of stuff, exactly? Well, Tripp & Tyler are a sketch comedy duo best known for their hilarious and viral YouTube videos, like Sh*t Nobody Says, and Things You CAN’T Do When You’re Not A Dog. They’ve been writing, directing, and performing their original material since 2006, amassing over 20 million YouTube viewers and over 60 thousand subscribers in the process. The Katydids, meanwhile, are a six-member ensemble of some of Chicago’s hottest up-and-coming performers, whose digital shorts have been showcased on The Huffington Post, MTV, Perez Hilton, Smosh, Cosmopolitan, Italy's Vanity Fair, College Humor and The Chicago Sun Times. They currently write, produce and star in the hit web series Teachers. Oh, and every member of the troupe’s first name just so happens derived from Katherine. It’s weird.
