Jake Hurwitz and Amir Blumenfeld are the writers/actors/editors behind the Webby award winning Internet series “Jake and Amir.” The duo have released two videos a week for over four years, with each episode now averaging more than 500,000 views. As a series, “Jake and Amir” has won several awards including the Webby’s People Voice for Best Web Series in 2010 and has been named one of PCMag’s top 15 best web-only shows. Their series has also appeared on television on MTV’s “The CollegeHumor Show.” The two have recently released their first ever half hour special, “Fired” available for online streaming and in DVD form.
