Additionally, The Bros starred in two seasons of the weekly sketch comedy series Friends of the People on TruTV, and they were featured in the FOX primetime series The Grinder starring Rob Lowe. They also appeared in the blockbuster summer comedy feature film 22 Jump Street alongside Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, and Ice Cube.

The guys made their latenight debut when they performed standup on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon in 2012 and have been a favorite on Fallon’s Tonight Show since, with multiple appearances. They are also familiar faces on Comedy Central, with appearances on several of the network’s series including The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail, The High Court, and Adam Devine’s House Party.
