The Other Two is being hailed as the first comedy show to ‘get’ gay life.

Parodying Instagays, wokeness, and dating, the Comedy Central show is critically acclaimed.

Comedy Central’s The Other Two

The show features an aspiring actor, Cary, and his sister Brooke, trying to make it big.

This all comes after their 13-year-old brother Chase’s sudden rise to internet fame.

Drew Tarver, who came out as bisexual this year, plays Cary, who is gay.

The latest episode sees Cary on a date in a pizza place.

‘I just wasn’t eating in case we… and I was the…. you know,’ the date says.

Cary replies: ‘Oh, yeah, I wasn’t gonna eat in case I was the…’

The conversation, sweet and almost sexy, tackles topping and bottoming.

‘I’d prefer to eat the pizza but if you want to eat…’ Cary says.

‘No, no, you eat the pizza,’ his date responds. ‘For tonight.’

Positive reactions on social media

Many on social media have applauded the small clip.

‘This is honestly the sweetest, sexiest little snippet of TV I have seen in a long while,’ TV writer Ariel Dumas said on Twitter.

‘So much steam heat in one little awkward pizza interchange. So well written and acted.’

Another said: ‘Congrats, my boyfriend and I are now 100% behind using “eating the pizza” as a euphemism.’

On Reddit, one user said: ‘What’s hysterical to me is that so few people will have any clue what’s going on here. Some straights might get it.’

Another said; ‘That was actually pretty cute. Also it exemplifies why fucking before the actual dinner date is always better.’

And another: ‘Me: “I’m not super hungry right now. What if we put this pizza in a fridge for a few hours and then we can both eat the pizza after we… don’t eat.”

‘But I’d be lying, I’m a nervous vers.’

And one final one: ‘Such a sweet way of handling that conversation and you just know some poor innocent straight people are confused as hell.’
