Pound House was a comedic web series that aired from 2013 to 2016. Produced by JASH, the show starred comedians Doug Lussenhop, Brent Weinbach, and Johnny Pemberton. Pound House followed the bizarre and hilarious antics of the three friends as they lived together in a rundown apartment complex in Eagle Rock, California.

The show was shot in a mockumentary style, with interviews, voiceovers, and a loose narrative structure. Each episode was a series of sketches and vignettes, ranging from surreal and absurdist to deadpan and observational. Most of the humor came from the characters' interactions with each other and with their environment, which often presented unexpected challenges and absurd situations.

Doug Lussenhop played himself, a deadpan, snarky editor and musician who frequently clashed with his roommates. Brent Weinbach played a hyperactive, nerdy caricature of himself, prone to obsessive behavior and bizarre outbursts. Johnny Pemberton played a lovable slacker, content to spend his days playing video games and smoking weed.

Despite the characters' quirks and flaws, Pound House had a lot of heart. The show celebrated the joys and struggles of friendship, as the characters supported each other through a series of misadventures. While Pound House was often surreal and absurd, it was also relatable in its portrayal of the everyday struggles of young adulthood.

One recurring theme in the show was the characters' struggles with their careers and creative aspirations. Doug was an aspiring musician and filmmaker, but he often found himself stuck in a dead-end job at a local TV station. Brent was a successful comedian, but he struggled with the pressure to be constantly funny and original. Johnny was a talented artist, but he lacked the discipline to create consistently.

The show also satirized many aspects of modern life, from social media to gentrification. In one episode, the characters competed to see who could get the most followers on a fake social media app. In another episode, they encountered a group of hipsters who gentrified their neighborhood and formed a cult-like group obsessed with artisanal mayonnaise.

One of the strengths of Pound House was its use of music and sound design. Doug Lussenhop, who produced the show and played himself, created the show's surreal, glitchy score and sound effects. The music added to the show's dreamlike, otherworldly quality and added an extra layer of humor.

Pound House was an underground hit during its run, garnering a cult following among comedy fans and alternative media enthusiasts. The show was praised for its inventive humor, unique style, and relatable characters. While it was never a mainstream success, Pound House remains a beloved classic of internet comedy.

Pound House is a series that is currently running and has 3 seasons (15 episodes). The series first aired on April 17, 2013.
