How much of 2 Girls 1 Show is real?
Internet communities and phenomena: real
The comedy show, Blogologues: real
**Blogologues is a real sketch comedy show Alli and Jen create and perform regularly in NYC. Learn more about the show here!
The interviews and interviewees: totally real and unscripted
The shenanigans: not real
The characters and places: somewhat real
**2 Girls 1 Show is a mockumentary of Alli and Jen's lives, so most characters and places are based on real life. For example, Alli really has a twin who works in tech; Jen's apartment is her actual apartment; Jen and Alli really work at a co-working space (called Alley, not UWerk).
Are you making fun of online communities?
Hail no, gurl. Really, we're only making fun of ourselves. The communities and people we interview are real, and we're fascinated by the connections they are able to form on the internet with other people who share their interests.
People have had the same worry about our live show Blogologues. Beforehand, they anticipated the show could get mean, but then they were pleasantly surprised to find that it was not.
"I feared the show would be mean-spirited, taking many low and easy swings as the horny, alienated, and vulnerable people whose online rants and pleas become fodder for comedy. But this is a great, intelligent, funny show." - The Daily Beast

What's this all about?
2 Girls 1 Show is an original, half-real/half-scripted, comedy series by Jen Jamula and Allison Goldberg, that follows the (two) girls as they research internet communities and trends in order to create their (one) show.
Alli and Jen have a live sketch comedy show called Blogologues in NYC, in which they perform internet content (this is true). This includes stuff like reddit wormholes, horrible Tinder messages, and more, all performed live onstage. Every day, they search the depths of the interwebs looking for new material - this is where each 2 Girls 1 Show episode starts. Like everyone who trolls the web, they find something that's like, "da fuq?"
But unlike everyone else, they decide to investigate it in real life.
Alli and Jen research what they find through REAL, unscripted interviews with the people behind the posts, and IRL experiments. Unfortunately (fortunately?), they take things too far, to the detriment of their personal lives. At the end of the episode, their "research" gets put into their live show. The girls learn how the internet brings us together and pulls us apart. (And also how it's a strange *#&%ing place.)
