Hi. I’m Peter Shukoff. I was born in Rochester, NY lived in Chicago for a while and now I’m in sunny LA. I enjoy playing guitar and singing songs for people like you. While I was in Chicago I got hired by Mission IMPROVable to tour the country performing improv comedy shows. I brought my guitar everywhere and serenaded ladies long into the night with my Weezer covers. Then I started writing my own songs. Then I went to clubs and started played them live. Eventually people were singing along and drunk people were hopping on stage with me. It was hilarious and terrifying. So, I moved to LA and kept it up, making Superman Socks and picture songs like Unicorns are For Gangstas. I also created the Monday show Vlog. The whole thing kinda snowballed and now I reside on Youtube where I get to do fun things like sing with Danny Trejo about Brisk Iced tea and get screwed out of residuals by the Miller Brewing Company. I also got scared of a Polar Bear and now I help write and perform the Epic Rap Battles of History. I hope you’re enjoying them. Let us know what you think!
I’m Lloyd Ahlquist. In high school I was a kick-ass gymnast. I went to the state champions and everything. Tiny, buff dudes like me are perfect gymnasts. But, I decided to pommel horse my way into theater and comedy instead (some gymnast humor for you). I went to college at UMASS Amherst where I joined the group Mission IMPROVable. As part of Mi I toured the country doing improv shows and freestyle improvised rap battles with friends. Then I got tired, so I hired other guys, like NicePeter, to do it for me. I moved to Los Angeles and opened up Mi’s Westside Comedy Theater in Santa Monica, which is still going strong. Then one night I was vacationing alone in my homemade cabin in Northern Canada, like I do every November. While eating the fish I caught with my bare hands and sleeping only two hours at a time to keep the fire going I was inspired! We should do rap battles between historical figures and put them on Youtube! I immediately burnt down the cabin, hopped on a polar bear and rode it like a surf board all the way back to Los Angeles. Peter was so scared of the Polar Bear he said yes without thinking. Thank God he did, because thirty million of you can’t be wrong. I hope you’re enjoying watching ERB as much as we are doing it. We have a lot more great stuff in store for you. And thanks for all the comments, I read every one. Even the really stupid ones.
