The men behind the mustaches
The Tin Can Brothers are a trio of Los Angeles based entertainers. As writers, directors, producers, and actors, they have over 100 YouTube videos, four live stage shows, and over $200,000 worth of Kickstarter projects under their belts. Their body of work showcases a unique collaboration of sketch comedy, short films, mini-series, and live shows from these University of Michigan graduates. As creators, they bring together artists from across diverse media platforms to tell character driven stories with a distinct style that subverts classic genre expectations. The three are also members of the viral sensation Team StarKid (over 235 million views on YouTube) and have worked closely on their parody musicals (including A Very Potter Musical and Holy Musical Batman!) as well as two national concert tours.

Frequently Asked Questions
I'd like to interview you guys! How should I go about setting that up?
We're flattered you want to talk to us! With everything we have in the pipeline, we can't always make it work, but feel free to reach out to us with the contact form above.
Can I license/perform Spies Are Forever or The Solve It Squad Returns with my school/company/friends?
We love the enthusiasm! Unfortunately, we're not licensing either show (in whole or in part) right now. But we hope to in the future! So stay tuned.
Do you have sheet music available for Spies Are Forever?
At this time, sheet music does not exist for Spies Are Forever. Our composers are mad geniuses who played the show from memory and rough chord charts. We'll definitely publicize it if we ever release sheet music though!
I live in [a country that is not the U.S.]. Can I still order TCB merchandise?
Yes yes yes! Our friends at Ann Arbor Tees ship anywhere in the world! (Though pricing for shippingcan often suck if you're very far away... sorry 🙁)
Are you hiring/can I do an internship with you guys?
Thanks for offering! You're the best. If we ever need help on a specific project we're working on, we'll post about it on our Facebook or Twitter. Other than that, we don't currently have any openings for general or ongoing help.
I have a great idea that I wrote! You should do it!
That's awesome! We don't, however, take outside pitches. But it sounds like something you should do yourself!
