The digital original “Growing Up and Getting Out” features a talented cast from stand-up, improv and sketch comedy.  The series, which launched on July 17 (, revolves around Michael (played by comedian Michael Palascak) and chronicles funny moments as he adjusts to moving back home with his parents (played by comedians Dave Koechner [“The Office,” “Anchorman”] and Mo Collins [“MADtv”]).  Rounding out the cast are Alexis Knapp (“Project X”) as Michael’s date, Allyn Rachel as his sister, Daveo Mathias as his friend and “The League’s” Steve Rannazissi as the series host.  Each week, the series will capture the drama, tensions and funny moments between at-home millennials and their parents – Homecoming (July 17); Dinner (July 23); Chores (July 30); Date (August 6) and Video Games (August 13).
