eHumor in 2005, Streeter has
performed on "Jimmy Kim-
mel Live!" and hosted MTV's
"franked" along with Amir,
and has become the editor-at-
large of CollegeHumor.
Despite all his achievements,
he still maintains that standup
is his true passion. Accord-
ing to Streeter, the presence
of a crowd makes stand-up the
most instantly rewarding work
he does.
"Even doing a video online
that gets 10 million views and
has lots of comments is all very
exciting. But at the end of the
day, you're still by yourself
with your computer," he added.
"It doesn't compare with seeing
people actually laugh at your
jokes. Plus, it's fun to meet the
fans and hang out with them."
His partners-in-crime Jake
and Amir also have extensive
experience they hope to bring
to the stage. Their self-titled
web series, "Jake and Amir,"
is the longest running show
on CollegeHumor, and the two
have been dubbed "comics to
watch."
Streeter, Jake and Amir will
appear in Ann Arbor for one
night only, after which they
will host a meet and greet for
all the attendees.

Daily Arts Writer
As pretentious as it sounds,
there's really something to
binge-watching a TV show that
reminds me of getting lost in
a great book, especially when
said TV show is HBO's "The
Wire."
The epic crime drama is
joined by "The Sopranos" and
"The West Wing" in the cat-
egory of "great shows not on TV
anymore but everyone should
still watch" - along with new-
est member "Breaking Bad."
But these shows aren't alone.
"Freaks and Geeks." "Firefly."
"Twin Peaks." So many great
shows go off the air yet remain
