Tripp and Tyler

Tyler Stanton and Tripp Crosby (Benbella Books)

You may not know Tripp Crosby and Tyler Stanton by name, but chances are you have  seen one or more of their many comedy videos posted on YouTube. Better known as Tripp & Tyler, the two have worked together and separately on various projects since 2006. Much of their work can be seen on YouTube where the comedy sketches and parodies have over 23 million views and the pair have over 65,000 subscribers. When they are not creating stull online, they are performing it around their home in Atlanta, Georgia.

Today, an announcement was sent regarding their new book, Stuff You Should Know About Stuff.  “It’s here. The book we’ve spent over two years writing, editing, tweaking, massaging, illustrating and debating over is now LIVE! This whole time we’ve planned on November 4th as the release date, but it looks like Amazon had other plans.”

So, what is the book about? Well, it’s full of wisdom from the minds of the authors who venture to guess that future anthropologists will no doubt describe the book as “the Rosetta Stone of handling trivial life situations.”  Topics discussed in the book include:

  • Do you know how to properly conduct yourself in a public restroom?
    What about in the midst of a profoundly awkward silence?
    Have you perfected how to get out of helping your friend move?

If the ringing endorsements from such celebrities as Jeff Foxworthy isn’t enough for you, (“Probably one of the top ten books ever written. I can’t wait to read it.”), then you might want to take advantage of the free 30-page excerpt. If you are unfamiliar with Tripp & Tyler, then check out their YouTube page.
