Jon also co-created, co-wrote, directed and starred in the CollegeHumor webseries Molly Made Me with reviews ranging from "What the f**k was this? Did I miss some kind of punch-line that was suppose to make this funny?" to "I actually found it pretty funny." to "In a way I feel like I could watch this." to "This is utter trash."  Jon also directs videos for internet sketch duo Medium Friends (Drew Tarver and Steve Szlaga) as well as a bunch of his own stuff.
