DRYVRS achieved early notoriety for its pilot episode with Culkin starring alongside Dishel, which went viral and now has over 25 million views on YouTube. Episode 2 followed with featured guest stars Tom Petty and Rosanna Arquette.

On the creation of the series, Dishel says, "When I was recording the latest Only Son album I was taking Uber and Lyft to the studio all the time. There was one week where I had four or five surreal rides in a row and I would spend the first half hour of the day telling my producer about all the crazy stuff the drivers were saying to me. I was joking that it was like being a hostage for weird vibes and eventually I got the idea to make a comedy based on that feeling. I asked a lot of my favorite actor and musician friends to be in it with me and suddenly :DRYVRS was born! Our first episode went viral within a few hours and we've been having fun making the new ones weirder and crazier. My favorite part about the show's format is that anything-literally anything-can happen at any time. So we've been making sure that it does."

Dishel is a NYC & L.A.-based musician, actor, writer, director and producer. He is the creator and star of :DRYVRS, singer/songwriter behind Only Son and lead guitarist for Moldy Peaches. In recent years he has toured the world opening for his wife, Regina Spektor. In addition to his one-man comedy shows, Dishel has directed music videos including Spektor's "Bleeding Heart" and acted in films and videos, most recently "Adam Green's Aladdin" and Father John Misty's "Total Entertainment Forever."
