In these videos, comedians Tripp and Tyler illustrate modern life at work, and how technology has fragmented communication and impacted relationships. Take a “laughter break” and share the videos and your thoughts.

THE JOY OF WORKING FROM HOME

In a world where conference calls have become a norm, we’ve learned to put up with all sorts of bizarre, annoying, and weird occurrences that get in the way of communication.

IS THIS YOUR INBOX?

Email and texting have the power to connect us, disconnect us and confuse us. Our email inbox is a daily rollercoaster of emotions, a mix of trivia and vital news. Tripp and Tyler expose what we have become accustomed to by manifesting our online reality into the physical world.
