Comedians Fran Gillespie and Kate Riley are Our Favorite Frat Bros

Despite having grown up on Long Island, a.k.a El Brorado, my most foundational broteraction occurred in college. I was a broke freshman who was eager to get floppy-drunk and make up for all those high school weekends spent creating Elijah Wood doppelgängers on The Sims. I had heard that one of the frats were having an open party in their brownstone, replete with jungle juice and a party theme that was deeply invested in the great “bro-ho” rhyme scheme. I scuttled my way over to Frat Row only to discover that the party was just a rumor — I walked through the building’s sweat-sock-littered foyer to find a group of guys arguing over the sexual politics of being attracted to Bugs Bunny in drag. There was soup burning on the stovetop. One guy was trying to solve a Rubik’s Cube. I felt like I had stumbled behind the curtain and discovered that the Wizard was just a sexually-frustrated boy in madras shorts. Once I was spotted, the frat bros immediately apologized for the confusion and offered me a drag from their hookah but I turned them down. I wasn’t sure if I could casually smoke apple-flavored tobacco next to the guy who had just described his Lola Bunny sex dream.
MTVOther’s Two Guys Named Josh is just like standing in that fraternity’s living room, except the bros are female comedians and Upright Citizens Brigade performers Fran Gillespie and Kate Riley and the smell isn’t as bad. Hilarious, absurd, and just the right amount of dumb, Two Guys Named Joshis the perfect web series to watch while cracking open some brewskies with your road dogs.
