UM, ACTUALLY Season 2 to Premiere on DROPOUT Later This Month

Um, Actually is a fun game show from CollegeHumor on their subscription streaming service DROPOUT. The second season is getting to launch later this summer with new topics like (but not limited to) musical theater and classic television thrown into the mix with D&D, video games, and more. The show is hosted by Mike Trapp who reads incorrect nerdy statements across various fandoms and the players must correct the sentence. This is actually a lot of fun to watch and see how well some people do in different areas. While many of the players are from CollegeHumor, they do also bring in celebrities such as Rachel Bloom and Matt Mercer.

Starring creator, host and super-nerd, Mike Trapp (@mikewtrapp), Um, Actually features Trapp asking a panel of guest contestants to correct statements on a variety of nerdy pop culture topics – from video games to movies, and TV shows to music. The catch is the contestants must begin their answers with the term “Um, actually…”, allowing them to indulge in their pedantic ways and do what nerds love to do best: correct each other.

For season two, Trapp has expanded the scope of topics and will introduce specific themed episodes focusing on areas such as musical theatre, horror and classic television, in addition to the usual geek topics of video games, science fiction and fantasy.

The second season of Um, Actually will premiere on DROPOUT on July 20 with new episodes airing each Saturday through September 21 giving fans 10 new episodes. I’ve included a clip from the episode with Mercer below where he corrects Trapp on a D&D question.
