Hi, what are you looking for?


Review: ‘Poor Us’ is a hysterical digital comedy series on YouTube (Includes first-hand account)

Jeremy Dozier starred in the lead role as Tanner Maxwell, and he wrote and produced this digital series. It deals with two gay fraternal twin brothers (Dozier as Tanner, and Matthew Bunker as Max) who are “cut off” by their extremely rich father, Frank, (played by Dave Huber) for the childish and irresponsible choices they are making in their lives.

The guys are subsequently forced to restart and rebuild their lives in a small studio apartment in Van Nuys, California. In their outrageous adventures, they are joined by their friend Chance, played by Billy Hutto.

Melanie Nicholson is sensational as attorney Barbara Cahill as she serves as the voice of reason on the show after their father cut them off. The entire cast is memorable and they deliver solid performances.

Poor Us was nominated for a total of eight 2020 Indie Series Awards, which included “Best Comedy Series,” “Best Lead Actor — Comedy” for Jeremy Dozier, as well as “Best Ensemble — Comedy.” Jonée B. Shady was a hoot as Rosenda, and worthy of her 2020 Indie Series Award win for “Best Guest Actress — Comedy,” especially for putting the boys in their place, and the cast won the coveted award for “Best Ensemble — Comedy.”

The Verdict

Poor Us is witty and fun. Jeremy Dozier wrote, produced, and starred in an entertaining and uplifting digital series. It garners four out of five stars.
