In short: #NoFilter is a comedy tour coming to Sixth and I Historic Synagogue on Saturday that features comedians and YouTube stars Grace Helbig, Hannah Hart and Mamrie Hart (#NoRelation). The trio are friends who co-star in the indie movie “Camp Takota” (available for $9.99 here) and have affectionately been dubbed YouTube’s Holy Trinity by their millions of online fans. Here’s a guide to the silly social media mavens behind #NoFilter.
She’s already a bona fide vlogging star with an army of 1.8 million subscribing to her pop-culture-minded “it’sGrace” YouTube channel, and now E! is trying to make her a TV star, too. Last week, the network hired Helbig to star in a pilot for a comedic talk show (currently titled “The Grace Helbig Project”) that could replace the departing “Chelsea Lately.” The timing couldn’t be better: Helbig has an advice book, “Grace’s Guide: The Art of Pretending to Be a Grown-Up,” due out in October that will appeal to millennials who aren’t quite ready for adulthood.
Hart, whose “MyHarto” YouTube channel has more than 1.3 million subscribers, is behind the webseries “My Drunk Kitchen,” which is sort of like “Drunk History” but way more dangerous. In each episode, Hart gets drunk and cooks a meal — to varying degrees of success. Sometimes, celebrities like Mary-Louise Parker stop by to make brownies. Just this week, “My Drunk Kitchen” became a book, filled with recipes, helpful tips to avoid drunk cooking catastrophes and plenty of jokes.
This Hart is not related to the other Hart, but they both love booze. Mamrie Hart (who has nearly 600,000 YouTube subscribers) hosts “You Deserve a Drink,” in which she picks a celebrity or friend who could really use a drink and makes one in their honor. After watching a video, you’re encouraged to make the drink, then watch the clip again and drink every time she makes a bad pun. Which is a lot. Like the others, Hart has a book deal: Her memoir and mixology guide “You Deserve a Drink” is due out next year.
Sixth and I Historic Synagogue, 600 I St. NW; Sat., 7 p.m., $35–$50
