Wouldn’t it be fun to go back to college? There’s something romantic about a society built on spirit, camaraderie, and a limited understanding of the trials that await each graduate once he or she leaves campus. That ideal is at the heart of Jon Vs. College, a new MSN web series produced by Principato-Young Entertainment.
The affable host of Jon Vs. College is Jon Gabrus, a UCB vet, regular TV performer, and lead actor in Yahoo’s well-received puppet comedy The Fuzz. Gabrus, ten years removed from his own college experience, is using the show as an excuse to travel back to a time in his life when beer was plentiful and reservations were not.
Jon Vs. College uses a tour format, with Gabrus palling around the country from school to school. The first episode takes him to Texas A&M for a Texas-sized football Saturday.
Two more episodes have already been produced, with more on the way. The first installment has cracked 100,000 views, so I’m guessing Gabrus’ collegiate exploits are far from over.
