Before erstwhile Community showrunner Dan Harmon had the opportunity to create the cult-favorite NBC sitcom, he launched a comedic career in his hometown of Milwaukee as a young actor in the mid-nineties.
While digging through the Midland Video archive, we stumbled across a gem. In 1995, Cousins Subs reached out to Midland Video Productions to create an employee training video that taught employees how to deliver exemplary customer service. The result was an Oscar-worthy performance from a fresh-faced Dan Harmon and his future writing partner Rob Schrab. The video, artfully titled “The Other Side of the Counter” shows how, back in 1995, Harmon and Schrab (also alumni of Milwaukee’s famed ComedySportz improv troupe) were successfully slinging subs and bringing the laughs, while we at Midland Video were hard at work serving up high-quality videos for our many satisfied clients.
