The Whitest Kid You Know.


A sneak peek at Those Who Can’t, an Amazon Studios pilot in production for Prime Instant Video. The show was created by Andrew Orvedahl, Adam Cayton-Holland, and Benjamin Roy, and inspired by their web series, The Grawlix. Orvedahl says the process has been “an amazing experience” so far:

“Coming from the world of self-produced web shorts, leaping into a full-length sitcom pilot was new to all of us, including the Nix brothers, who were directing and shooting. It was basically an immersive crash course in how to make a pilot. Spending the previous year making those web shorts paid off quite a bit because we already had the working chemistry both behind and in front of the camera. We’d been doing this in a way just for fun, weekend after weekend, for free. So I’m really glad we had been working on The Grawlix web series all this time.”

With Ben and Adam on the road a lot, Andy is left to run The Grawlix by himself. 

Starring Rory Scovel, Sean Patton and Andrew Orvedahl, The Grawlix is back…kind of.

Shot by the Nix Bros. and shot in Denver, Colorado. Thank you everyone who supports our comedy! Also don’t forget we still sell Grawlix mugs! Buy one for your psychiatrist!

It’s the high holiday season here in Grawlix Town, one of our favorite times of year for so, so many reasons! Whether it’s Andrew covering himself head to toe in tinsel and strolling gayly through the streets, signing carols for anyone not repulsed by his mustache, or Ben recapping the year in his delightful annual holiday letter, letting friends and family know exactly what they did wrong this year, and how, or whether it’s me, Adam, trolling holiday parties for cheap drinks and even cheaper pills, the sea
son fills us to the gills with cheer. But perhaps our most favorite thing about this time of year, is how the holidays bring home many of our favorite Denver-bred comedians who have moved to other parts of the country in bold, dick-joke diasporas. And so we shall parade them before you, our loyal Grawlix audience, on December the 28th and we will say goodbye to this fucked up year the only way we know how: Spanish. 

Please come out and join us as we welcome home Rob Gleeson, pencil-necked comedy juggernaut/Will Arnett version 2.0 (we’ve all seen the commercial). Rob rules and we’re glad to have him back. Then sup from the cup of Andy Sell, lovely friend of the show/hilarious half-walrus man with a mustache to rival Baron Von Orvedahl). What else? How about Dave Ross, the man behind one of LA’s absolute best comedy shows Holy Fuck and just a swell-smelling individual in general.

Not enough? Okay fine. How about Aurora-born, NYC comedy badass Dan Soder? Don’t know who Dan is? For. Fucking. Shame. He’s got innumerable credits (Just for Laughs, SXSW, some podcasts, one time bought Adam a beer) and he rules. And then to top it all off oh yeah we’ve got Josh Blue

Yes. That Josh Blue.

Couple that with the Grawlix boys and oh, I don’t know, a new episode of the Grawlix web series and you’ve got yourself one hell of a show. See ya there, urrybody. Tis the season!
