Mamrie Hart: Actor, Drinker, and Established Writer

/ Mar 12, 2014


Starting her career as a comedic actor, Mamrie Hart felt she had two options, either writing or acting, but not both. On “Ear Biscuits with Rhett & Link,” Mamrie explained how YouTube allowed her to “converge those two things.”

On YouTube, you may have noticed that not everyone scripts their show. Mamrie writes some of her jokes in advance but also adlibs with Grace Helbig on the popular “You Deserve a Drink.” However, Hart’s writing skills did come in particularly handy when it involved a larger project with her YouTube pals.

Camp Takota,” released this past February on VHX, came to Mamrie through an offer originally given to just Grace and the other YouTube Hart, Hannah. However, the two women suggested the producer bring Mamrie on board, in part due to her writing abilities. Though Grace and Hannah had larger audiences at the time, Mamrie had “the writing aspect,” which resulted in her creating the “Camp Takota” story.

So Mamrie brought a partial script to the movie’s producer, who reportedly “loved it.” Of course, scripts often have to fit the stars rather than the other way around. Since Hannah and Grace had been called to act in the movie before it was written, Mamrie had to fit the script to feature three, female leads, thus forming the “Camp Takota” we know today.

As far as where else writing for YouTube can lead you, Mamrie told Rhett & Link of her plans to publish a book. She’s currently working on a book based her well-known YouTube show. “It could be called ‘You Deserve a Drink,’ but who knows?” Mamrie said of the work-in-progress, which features drink recipes throughout.

To learn more about Mamrie’s past work and future projects, tune into her interview podcast on Rhett & Link’s “Ear Biscuits.”
