:DRYVRS achieved early notoriety for its pilot episode with Culkin starring alongside Dishel, which went viral and now has over 25 million views on YouTube. On the creation of the series, Dishel says, “When I was recording the latest Only Son album I was taking Uber and Lyft to the studio all the time. There was one week where I had four or five surreal rides in a row and I would spend the first half hour of the day telling my producer about all the crazy stuff the drivers were saying to me. I was joking that it was like being a hostage for weird vibes and eventually I got the idea to make a comedy based on that feeling. I asked a lot of my favorite actor and musician friends to be in it with me and suddenly :DRYVRS was born! Our first episode went viral within a few hours and we’ve been having fun making the new ones weirder and crazier. My favorite part about the show’s format is that anything—literally anything—can happen at any time. So we’ve been making sure that it does.”
Dishel is a NYC & L.A.-based musician, actor, writer, director and producer. He is the creator and star of :DRYVRS, singer/songwriter behind Only Son and lead guitarist for Moldy Peaches. In recent years he has toured the world opening for his wife, Regina Spektor. In addition to his one-man comedy shows, Dishel has directed music videos including Spektor’s “Bleeding Heart” and acted in films and videos, most recently “Adam Green’s Aladdin” and Father John Misty’s “Total Entertainment Forever.”
