Rhett & Link are lifelong friends with a friendship that can be traced back to childhood.

They officially met in first grade at Harnett County at Buies Creek Elementary School on September 4, 1984.

Their friendship kindled immediately, and they even found themselves in detention together. 

Their first memory of getting into trouble together was a few years after meeting; they were in detention for writing swear words on their desks.

They also made a blood oath to “do something big” in high school.

Rhett & Link’s duo careers started early on while they were still students.

At age 14, they wrote a screenplay titled “Gutless Wonders” and confidently began shooting their first film based on the script.

Due to their lack of resources and experience, they stopped filming after a few scenes.  

In high school, they shot a short satire film on the true story of Oedipus Rex. In addition, they were members of the Christian punk rock band “The Wax Paper Dogz.”

The pair enrolled at North Carolina State University in 1996 and were roommates.

Rhett graduated in 2000 with a Bachelor of Civil Engineering. One year later, in 2021, Link graduated with a Bachelor of Industrial Engineering.

Rhett & Link began their careers as professional engineers in their respective fields.

Alongside their full-time jobs, they created videos and performed comedy sketches for Cru, a religious organization.

It was their membership with Cru that truly kickstarted their career in comedy and media entertainment.

Apart from making sketches for Cru, they were encouraged to make comedy sketches of their own.

They enjoyed it so much that they resigned from their professional engineering careers to pursue careers in comedic entertainment.

Good Morning Chia Lincoln

On January 3, 2011, shortly after resigning from their jobs, the duo successfully launched their first talk show titled “Good Morning Chia Lincoln” in their private studio.

The episodes would typically include the pair giving opinions on trendy news topics or other personal life experiences and encounters. Nevertheless, the show did not last long, ultimately ending on February 28, 2011.

Good Mythical Morning

Shortly after, they relocated to Los Angeles, and on January 9, 2012,  the duo launched “Good Mythical Morning (GMM).”

The widely successful channel is an opinion-style talk show that airs on weekdays at 6 am, drawing in millions of viewers worldwide.

The creativity of the channel is what attracts mounds of viewers. It includes a segment titled “Wheel of Mythicality,” which allows the viewers to decide how the pair will end the show, generally played out in an improvised format, adding an irregularity factor to each episode.

The show had grown so large that the duo divided it into unique segments, including the “Taste Test” series and the “Will It” series, which was ultimately featured on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

In January 2013, GMM won the award for Best Variety Series at the International Academy of Web Television Awards. By this point, the pair decided to take a break from GMM and create an additional channel.

The Mythical Show

They created “The Mythical Show,” and the first episode was aired on April 25, 2013. 

This channel would include guest actors and YouTube personalities, which attracted a large audience in a short amount of time.

It was structured as a 30-minute series and was aired Thursdays at 5 pm (EST). The first season ended on July 11, 2013, and the duo discontinued it to focus on growing the GMM show.

Despite only being aired for less than three months, it won the 2014 People’s Choice Webby Award for individual comedy short. 

They decided that since GMM had been experiencing tremendous success, they created an addition to the “Good Mythical MORE’ series, a show that airs directly after GMM but on a separate channel.

The nature of this show is to create organic, improvised content, adding excitement and ambiguity to each opening episode.

Season 6 of GMM aired on July 14, 2014, and had a new format. Since the duo and show had harnessed a celebrity status over time, most episodes would include guest appearances from A-list celebrities, including Amy Schumer, Shay Mitchell, and Daniel Radcliffe.

Amid their busy schedules, the duo launched a podcast on September 27, 2013, titled “Ear Biscuits,” available on iTunes, Spotify, and SoundCloud.

The podcast aired weekly on Sundays, and the content was designed around the duo’s lives and how they became such close friends.

The podcast would often include guest appearances from internet personalities. As of February 4, 2019, the podcast became inactive on SoundCloud.

This is Mythical

On March 20, 2017, they announced the addition of a new channel titled “This is Mythical.”

The series contains general vlogs, a food series titled “Mythicalicious,” clips from their Ear Biscuits podcast, and much more. The content for this channel was created exclusively by the Mythical Entertainment crew members. 

In 2018, the duo decided to rebrand the channel, titling it “Mythical.” Despite being largely successful, it is currently an inactive channel.

On December 20, 2019, Mythical Entertainment announced the addition of yet another channel, titled “Mythical Kitchen.” The series is dedicated entirely to food featured videos and contains multiple series, including “Fancy Fast Food” and “Snack Smash.”
