His love for theatre led him to enroll at Illinois State University in 2005, from which he obtained his Bachelor of Science degree in acting in 2009.
“The Try Guys”
Not long after he graduated from college, Keith found himself working at the American internet media and entertainment company BuzzFeed Inc. as a producer and editor of their videos. In 2014, he and three other employees Ned Fulmer, Zach Kornfeld and Eugene Lee Yang, decided to form the group today known as “The Try Guys”.
At the very beginning, the four men tried featuring other people in their videos, but after learning that the audience in fact wanted only them, they decided to stick together and began making comedy videos.
Their first channel was launched in 2014 – one of their first popular videos was “Guys Try Ladies’ Underwear for the First Time”. In early 2017, they created their web series “Squad Wars” which can be watched with the YouTube Red subscription service. Most of their videos have been shot in Los Angeles, Glendale and Burbank. The group has also attracted a lot of attention thanks to many interviews they’ve given to various magazines, including “Today”, and in 2017, they were nominated for a Streamy Award for Show of the Year.
