Jake and Amir has received general acclaim as its style and viewership has evolved and expanded.In 2008, PC Magazine listed the series among its "Top 100 Undiscovered Web Sites", saying: "Considering it's mainly a hobby they do after work, the webisodes at Jake And are better than some of the stuff they get paid to do for College Humor." PC Magazine featured Jake and Amir again in 2011, when it listed the series as one of its "15 Best Web-Only Shows", commenting that, "they show no sign of running out of very bizarre situations for this sometimes disturbing comedy." The on-demand series is about a 30-something year old Ruby Jade, played by Blumenfeld, who wants to have sex more than anything.
