So I found this comedian, John Mulaney, through a Tumblr post with the following video:
Which is hysterical. But then I found someone who made a kinetic typography video of one of his short sketches and it’s perfect for the subject matter:
Not his best, but still funny. ‘Cause, you know, Brian Regan.
Solution: Brian Regan. Always Brian Regan.
Patton Oswalt is not my favorite comedian (Brian Regan is definitely the best!), but these two routines are pretty great.
The animation’s great, plus everything past 6:16.
I can’t remember if I’ve ever posted a video of the mime Les Bubb on here, but I logged onto my OLD YouTube account this morning and was checking out my favorites, and an older video of his was on there. Searched him again and found this one. He’s really good!
The first human being to set foot on our moon died yesterday as a result of complications following a heart surgery that was performed earlier this month.
Rest in peace, Neil Armstrong. You may have been a modest and humble man, but your actions and courage certainly impacted and inspired the entire planet.
As tribute, I present the ever awesome, ever hilarious Brian Regan and his “I walked on the moon” skit.
Chicago Hope + Boston Legal = no sleep and much laughter.
And I have just discovered Gabriel Iglesies. He’s cool.
So wrong, but his impressions make it really funny.
Also, thanks to my NaNo, I now know more about presidential hairstyles and hair in general than anyone should.
Actual videos, since I raved about him before.
“Can I park here? I think I’m gonna DIE.”
“Who the HELL…had the auDACity…to say he was at a level TEN?!?!”
I’m not a big fan of comedians, but I think that this guy, Brian Regan, is hilarious. His humor is clean, but he’s still very funny. Quotes to judge, though it’s better to look him up and watch his videos, ‘cause his physical humor is great.
(Talking about getting UPS to pick up some boxes.)
“Yeah um, I have uh, 10 boxes. And . . . no I’m another guy. Yeah, and they all weigh exactly, 22 pounds . . . and they all have a girth of . . . 3.”
“Three . . . girth units! Come pick ‘em up, please. I’m beggin ya, they’re boxes, and they’re brown and they have tape all on ‘em and they’ll probably fit on a DOLLY! Why must you torture me?”
“The big yellow one is the Sun! The yellow one is the Sun!”
“Left leg… BROKEN!”
“I don’t know what’s up with cranberries, but they’re getting in all the other juices.”
“Putt, Golfer, PUTT!”
“There’s a book. There’s a plane! THERE’S ALPHA CENTAURI!”
This is Sean’s favorite comedian, Mitch Hedberg, and after listening to him, I like him as well. Observe:
“One time a guy handed me a picture and said, ‘here’s a picture of me when I was younger.’ Every picture is of you when you were younger! ‘Here’s a picture of me when I’m older.’ You son of a bitch, how’d you pull that off? Let me see that camera.”
“I’d like to see a forklift lift a crate of forks… it’d be so damn literal! You are using that machine to its exact purpose!”
“I think we should only get 3 honks a month on the car horn, because people honk the car horn too much. 3 honks, that’s the limit. And then someone cuts you off, ffffft, you press your horn, nothing happens. You’re like, ‘shit! I wish I wouldn’t have seen Ricky on the sidewalk!’”
“I was at this casino minding my own business, and this guy came up to me and said, ‘you’re gonna have to move, you’re blocking a fire exit.’ As though if there was a fire, I wasn’t gonna run. If you’re flammable and have legs, you are never blocking a fire exit.”
“I saw this wino, he was eating grapes. It’s like, ‘dude, you have to wait.’” (my favorite)
“I saw a commercial that said, ‘forget everything you know about slip covers!’ So I did. And it was a load off my mind. Then the commercial tried to sell me slip covers, but I didn’t know what the hell they were.”
“Alcoholism is a disease, but it’s the only disease that you can get yelled at for having. Goddammit Otto, you’re an alcoholic! Goddammit Otto, you have lupus! One of those two doesn’t sound right.”
“Last time I called shotgun, we had rented a limo… so I fucked up.”
“Foosball fucked up my perception of soccer. I thought you had to kick the ball, and then spin around and round. I can’t do a backflip, much less several… simultaneously with two other guys… that look just like me.”
“I’m an ice sculptor… last night I made a cube.”
This man speaks truth.
