“Plinkett is a bit of an alter ego I suppose. He’s sort of the embodiment of complaining about stuff. Personified irritation.”

Mike later added:

“I’m a little more reasonable in real life, obviously, and he’s just a character. It’s part performance, part commentary.”

He starred in 5 seasons of the web sitcom The Grabowskis, a web series about a dysfunctional blue-collar family living in Milwaukee.

I'm a big fan of the Red Letter Media "crew". Mike's hilarious. Jay has his moments as well. Though he's usually much more reserved than Mike. Rich Evans can be pretty funny as well. I've also noticed that Rich is actually a really good actor. It makes me wonder if he ever pursued an acting career. I'm sure he would have landed some roles. He really is that good.
