We love the guys of Dormtainment not only for their humor, but their hustle. The six-man comedy team consistently brings the funny every Sunday on their YouTube channel that has amassed over 700,000 subscribers and 89 million views.
Now the comedy troupe, who brought us hilarious sketches like the National Geographic spoof “Nat Geo: Black People Laughing,” is teaming up with Comedy Central for a new digital series 6 Guys 1 Car. “Written by and starring Dormtainment’s comedy troupe and directed by Nick Goossen, the series follows six guys from Atlanta to Los Angeles, documenting the “Broke and Famous” lifestyle of their YouTube popularity.”
6 Guys 1 Car is one of five digital series ordered by Comedy Central and will be produced by CC:Studios and distributed across multiple platforms including cc.com and the recently released Comedy Central App.
Here’s hoping this Comedy Central partnership brings Dormtainment even closer to nabbing a prime-time television slot.
We’ll be checking out 6 Guys 1 Car. Will you?
