Comedian Kyle Vorbach Headshot

Parents of Kyle Vorbach Rejoice: My Website is Done!

At long last, my website is up and running. I will be updating with my newest projects and videos. I also have a confidence-boosting About Me page.

I eagerly wait for the future, where years from now, parents will tell their kids “we met on kylevorbach.com”.

Until then, talk to me on social media. People always say “I promise, I don’t bite”. I bite, like a feral animal. I was raised by wolves.

KyleVorbach.com. Ask your parents before going online.

Dramatic Turn! I’m Making a Horror Movie

They say filmmaking is problem solving. Never has this been more true than this adventure that I’ve found myself on during the past year.

INT. PARENT’S BASEMENT – NIGHT

Last summer I began work on the short film that I planned on shooting this spring. I happened upon an idea while brainstorming, an idea that would be everything I wanted in a short – humor, action, visual effects – and got to writing immediately. And I realized I hated it.

So I came up with another idea. I had a great story, plenty of action, and maybe even viral potential. I got to writing immediately. And I realized that it wasn’t funny. I wanted to make something funny.

We were at square one again, until we returned to an idea my co-producer had… back when we were freshman in college. This idea was the one. Funny, action-packed, mind-blowing, heartfelt– the list goes on. We spent weeks meticulously plotting it, and with a grant deadline days away, I wrote the entire 15-page script in one weekend.

Wait, I Thought It Was a Horror Movie?

It is. And in a way, so was my life, when we found out TWO WEEKS BEFORE SHOOTING that our main, critical location tripled their cost, effectively canceling our production. But filmmaking is problem solving. The problem?

What do you do with a full crew, rented equipment, seven shooting days, and no script?

The answer? Kill yourself– churning out a script, that is. We wanted to make something funny, but when the joke was on us, we returned to the first good idea we had: the great story, with plenty of action, and maybe even viral potential. The horror movie, now called Wake.

We just wrapped principal photography. I’ll tell you all about it when I have more to show.

TL;DR

  1. I wrote a short comedy.
  2. Murphy’s Law.
  3. Dramatic turn!
  4. I’m making a horror movie.

NEW COMEDY WEB SERIES: GOODNIGHT JOHN

Goodnight John: Our OTHER New Comedy Series

You know those stupid conversations you have at sleepovers? Yeah, this is a comedy series about that.

What is Goodnight John?

Goodnight John is the newest addition to the stable of Future Boyfriends comedy series. It follows the titular John and his aggravated roommate Alex every night, right before they go to sleep. The dynamic is kind of like Jake and Amir, but right before bed. You’re going to like it.

After finishing the release of the John and Kyle Do Everything movie, I received a call from John about a script he wrote– a pilot for a potential new web series. I read it and laughed out loud, repeatedly, like a fool. I knew immediately that we had to make this new idea into a reality.

That pilot script has not changed a word. After defining the scope and idea for the series, we wrote an additional seven episodes for a full season of the show, and John got to work with production out in Los Angeles. Our aim is to make shorter, more digestible content than we previously did with the John and Kyle web series, with the added benefit of easy production (it all takes place in a bedroom!). Maybe we can make more in the future. Who knows.

In the mean time, watch the teaser attached to this post, and look out for the first episode next Monday. There’s seven more where that came from.

High Science: Our New Comedy Web Series

There is a higher chance that we live in a computer simulation than not. Wrap your head around that one. Now smoke a bowl, and try to explain that on camera. Welcome to High Science.

What is High Science?

High Science is a comedy web series where a weekly “Scientist” guest smokes up and attempts to explain complicated scientific concepts. Done in the style of the crappy VHS videos we were all shown in High School, each episode’s Bill Nye-type host attempts to explain concepts like evolution, the infinitely expanding universe, and how airplanes work.

 

In case you missed our announcement yesterday, we’re launching a comedy network / website called FUTURE BOYFRIENDS! Now let’s talk about our first new web series: HIGH SCIENCE.

We smoke people up and then have them attempt to explain mind-blowing science concepts like “What is the Universe Expanding Into?” and Einstein’s Theory of Relativity. Picture if Bill Nye was high. Yeah, it’s that. Except the hilarious Sydney Morin is hosting.

WE PREMIERE ON DECEMBER 1ST. New content EVERY WEEK from Future Boyfriends. This one is really good. LOVE YOU <333

After witnessing the explosive success of Drunk History, I felt that there was a large population left untapped, and like all great ideas, I came up with this one in the shower. I pitched it to John immediately, and tried to get it out as quick as possible, before someone could take it. I just had a feeling. Maybe I was just paranoid.

Check out the show’s page on Future Boyfriends while you wait for our release in a couple of weeks. I’m very excited about this one!

EDIT: I have embeded the first episode of High Science below! Give it a watch.

Introducing Future Boyfriends, Our New Comedy Network!

Check it out! After several weeks of toiling away in the darkness, our comedy network Future Boyfriends is finally here!

What is Future Boyfriends?

Let me tell you.

After finishing and releasing all of our existing John and Kyle Do Everything content, John and I were presented with a problem: if we were to continue making content, where would we put it? Would we have to abandon our established social media reach and create new accounts? Or was there another solution?

 

From our Facebook announcement:

HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT! Wondering where we’ve been since the movie / what we’ve been teasing for months? We’re launching a comedy network! We are FUTURE BOYFRIENDS. This means new comedy sketches and shorts, comedy articles, and not one but TWO NEW WEB SERIES!

We will be releasing new comedy videos and articles EVERY WEEK. There’s new stuff up now for you to check out. We’re announcing our FIRST NEW WEB SERIES tomorrow, and it premieres two weeks from now! We will also be rebranding all of our social media for Future Boyfriends shortly. How cool is this??

We could not be more stoked for this next step in our careers. Launching a comedy network based in both New York and LA is crazy, but love can overcome any obstacle. Now we get to make even more awesome stuff and you are going to have a god damn blast.

Thank you for sticking with us! Your life is about to get a lot better. Check out the site and our hilarious new stuff. We love you <33333

HOW TO CHOOSE A COLLEGE | OMGCHOMP and Kyle Vorbach (Future Boyfriends)

Giving Some College Advice (With Omgchomp!)

Last month, my friend Alyssa and I took advantage of the fact that I was still on the West Coast in Los Angeles and made as many videos as we could in one day. This video is one such example.

Alyssa’s channel (Omgchomp) has a lot of younger viewers that ask her for help/advice on choosing colleges and what-have-you, and since the two of us went to college together, we made a video giving some college advice to hopefully make someone’s life a little less stressful. Also: it’s funny.

We also made a bunch of videos that will be going up on my channel at some unknown point in the future. So look forward to that!

Kyle Vorbach in a Conan Sketch (Briefly)

I’ve just arrived in Los Angeles and I’ve already made it on TV. My national television debut in fact (I like to make it sound fancy like that).

I happened to be selected by the casting department at Conan to appear as a member of Justin Bieber’s posse in the following sketch. Say what you will about my haircut, but it got me on TV!

Life goal: get famous enough to be a guest on Conan, then bring this up during my interview. In the mean time, I’ll just keep interning.

I’m Also Interning at CollegeHumor!

Not only am I interning at Conan, but I also accepted an internship with the production department at CollegeHumor for this spring!

If Conan was what convinced me to go into comedy, CollegeHumor definitely showed me what specifically it was that I wanted to do. I remember discovering the CollegeHumor website when I was back in middle school and quoting all their hilarious videos with my friends. It introduced me to sketch comedy and web content as a medium for humor, and set me down a path that directly led me to where I am today.

It’s mind blowing that I will be working here too. I met Jake from Jake and Amir on my first day. We riffed about the park garage attendant turning into a vampire. These guys were a huge influence on my own comedy web series, John and Kyle Do Everything.

I’m Interning At Conan!

I am pleased to announce that I will be an intern in the production department at Conan in Los Angeles this spring!

Conan is by far my biggest influence in comedy. I saw every episode of him on the Tonight Show. Don’t tell him, but I also named my dog Coco.

I am incredibly stoked to be working here. Unfortunately, that translated into a needless cocky picture on my ID card:

That face says “my father owns a lake house”. Full disclosure: my Dad does not own a lake house.

Life is crazy, yo.
