ABOUT
As Pretty Much It, fast-talking funny boys Eric Striffler & Jacob Shao provide laugh-out-loud commentary for your favorite (and least-favorite) movies and TV shows. Since releasing their first commentary track together in 2017, the comedy duo has gained an audience of half a million subscribers on YouTube.

New tracks are released twice a week: movie tracks on Fridays and TV tracks on Mondays.

HISTORY
Eric created Pretty Much It in 2010 as a platform to discuss the latest movies and TV shows with friends, but as his interests became more focused on comedy and performance, so too did the content.

Over the past decade, Eric has experimented with producing many different types of content under the Pretty Much It brand. While the majority of these ventures were short-lived, the longest-running has been commentary tracks - the first of which was released back in 2013 featuring a different lineup. Several years later, Jacob joined the company as a production assistant and eventually became a co-host when the previous lineup disbanded.

While it was fun to create all of the content, the brand had little to no growth until the start of 2018 when Pretty Much It unexpectedly saw a sharp increase in YouTube subscribers. This growth has continued steadily ever since, enabling exciting opportunities such as a live comedy tour around the US in the summer of 2019.
