Early life and education
Adejuyigbe was born in London in 1992 to Nigerian parents and lived in the United Kingdom until he was five years old. His family then moved to Dallas, Texas where he lived until moving to Los Angeles, California in 2013. He has one younger sister named Temiloluwa. He attended high school in Texas and then attended the University of Texas at Austin, receiving a B.S. in Radio, Television, and Film in 2013.
Beginnings and social media
Adejuyigbe initially gained notoriety from his online presence on Vine under the name, "Electrolemon." After graduating from University of Texas, he moved to Los Angeles and began working as an office manager for FOX Animation Domination High Definition programming and then interned at Ben Stiller's Red Hour Productions. Adejuyigbe was hired as a Vine producer for the digital team at Funny or Die and later became a digital producer for @midnight in 2014. Additionally, Adejuyigbe hosted "Points Party," a spin-off talk show of @midnight that was posted exclusively on Snapchat.
Adejuyigbe has gotten recognition for his comedy music clips, which he posts to Twitter and YouTube. These include parody raps in the style of Will Smith and an annual video of him dancing to the song "September" by Earth, Wind & Fire. In 2018 he elected to sell T-shirts identical to the one he wears in each video with all of the proceeds from these sales (over $17,000) going to RAINN, RAICES, and the National Center for Transgender Equality.
Adejuyigbe joined the writers' room for the first season of NBC's The Good Place and was credited on the season's tenth episode, "Chidi's Choice." Until the summer of 2019, Adejuyigbe worked as a writer for CBS' The Late Late Show with James Corden.
Adejuyigbe has also written articles for various publications including The New Yorker, The Guardian, Thought Catalog, CollegeHumor, and The Hairpin.
Adejuyigbe became the co-host of the Gilmore Guys podcast after he replied to a tweet from Kevin T. Porter in September 2014 about Porter's desire to start a podcast about the television show Gilmore Girls. By November 2016, they were getting between 150,000 and 200,000 downloads per episode. In 2017, Time magazine included Gilmore Guys in their list of "The 50 Best Podcasts Right Now." Adejuyigbe and Porter held live shows of their podcast across the country and had a cameo appearance in the revival of the series, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.
Adejuyigbe hosted the podcast Punch Up the Jam with Miel Bredouw where they create parodies of pop classics. In June 2019, Adejuyigbe announced his departure from Punch Up the Jam in a tweet made up of images that referenced iconic album covers. "I've had a wonderful run, but it's my time to move on. My last episodes will be dropping in September." Bredouw plans to continue the podcast, possibly changing the format after Adejuyigbe's departure.
