Rideshare, the all-too-real Web Series
You’re a stranger, so who are you going to tell?
We’ve all got amusing stories of city life from weird encounters with drunk folks, to that particularly terrifying late night train ride, to experiences with ride share services like Lyft and Uber. They’re all worth a laugh after the fact but, during the moment, can cause a whole different range of emotions.
RideShare follows the stories of one driver and the eclectic passengers with whom he shares the ride. Created by real-life driver Jeff Irlbeck and real-life frequent ride sharing passenger Katie Hunter, each episode is completely improvised. With the help of writer Ian Michael Smith, the character and stories were conceived and distributed to the talented cast of actors who portray them. From funny to disturbing, each of RideShareâ€™s six episodes reveals what happens when people choose to share.
Guys, these episodes are FUNNY! Though they’re definitely funny in the “this is not going to end well” kind of way. They’re absolutely ridiculous while at the same time being way too real for words. Because we’ve definitely been around when people choose to share and, oof, that can get real weird real quick.
If you ever use ride share programs, you’ll definitely find some good hilarity in this series. Check them out here!
You can also get $20 off your first LYFT ride with code “JEFF613” which is pretty awesome. I, for one, vastly prefer Lyft over Uber so I highly recommend them!
