The Real

The Real
The Real is Hip Hop Sketch Comedy at its best.  Since Summer 2007, brothers Eric and Jeff Rosenthal have written, directed, edited and acted in weekly sketches that comment on Hip Hop as a business, Hip Hop as a lifestyle, and Hip Hop as a culture.  


Eric Rosenthal, 27, is classically trained in filmmaking, having graduated from Syracuse University and trained with the legendary cinematographer Laszlo Kovacs, ASC.  Kanye West hired Eric to document him at the Grammys and on tour, and for the next two years, Eric filmed artists behind the scenes for record companies and management firms.

Jeff Rosenthal, 23, is a graduate of Boston University, where he focused on American Studies.  Formerly a writer/producer for HBO's comedy site,, Jeff currently is the In-House Artist for IAC's
