THE BEST Comedy

Stray Man

Stray Man

(PG-13: Language) In this silly sketch from Aunty Donna’s Netflix series Big Ol’ House of Fun, housemate Mark decides to take in a stray he found wandering around outside. But it’s not a dog or a cat, this is a full-grown man. Fortunately, Antony Starr is a bit more docile here than as Homelander on The Boys.

Love & Monsters (Trailer)

Love & Monsters (Trailer)

A “monsterpocalypse” forces what’s left of humanity to take refuge underground. As survivors pair off, Joel braves the surface, facing the monsters between him and his high school sweetheart. Potentially as fun as “Zombieland” but with Michael Rooker in the Woody Harrelson role. VOD release drops 10.16.20.

The Man in the Shed

The Man in the Shed

(PG-13: Language) “Stir the sandwich… and slice the tea.” A woman answers her phone only to be met with demands from a mysterious caller lurking in the shed in her backyard. Francis Higgins and Viper Films poke fun at a classic horror film trope in this silly, but absolutely perfect little skit.

HoHos: The Big Turnaround

HoHos: The Big Turnaround

Ali Ali’s silly commercial envisions a world where Egyptian bakery company Edita is struggling to move its HoHos snack cakes, and how one clever employee comes up with a simple design change to send sales through the roof. We wonder what these could these guys do to sell more Twinkies.

Waffle

Waffle

(PG-13: Language) An awkward and socially-inept woman invites a girlfriend over for a sleepover, but we quickly discover their friendship isn’t real, and things take quite an unexpected turn. Carlyn Hudson’s dark comedy short film could easily be the premise for an episode of Black Mirror.

Breaking Up

Breaking Up

A couple finds themselves having difficulty connecting while quarantined apart, as they struggle to figure out if it’s their relationship that’s falling apart, or just their internet connection. Dogfood’s sketch offers a humorous look at one of the many challenges of dating in today’s world.

That Friend You Hate

That Friend You Hate

(PG-13: Language) Eli Shapiro’s short film about a guy and his childhood friend is filled with uncomfortable moments, yet is completely relatable for anyone who’s ever had a “friend” who was so obnoxious, but you couldn’t get rid of them. Actors Sean Brannon and Will Cooper’s great chemistry is revealed mostly through improv.

Quentin: I’m a Train

Quentin: I’m a Train

We honestly have no idea what to say after watching Quentin Smirhes‘ absurdist music video about a guy who thinks he’s a “chooka” train, but all we knew was we had to share it with the rest of the world immediately. Perhaps we’ve been hypnotized into doing it. Enjoy the source material here.

Out of Touch

Out of Touch

Two men find themselves at the wrong end of the long arm of the law. As they make a break for it into the woods, they question the decision that changed everything. Kevin James continues to prove his sketch comedy chops with perfect use of dramatic tension and a solid punchline. Filmed by the Kinnane Brothers.

Lockdown! The Game!

Lockdown! The Game!

Comedian James Veitch walks us through a gameplay tutorial for “Lockdown! The Game!” an entirely too appropriate card game about being stuck at home during a pandemic. While the game doesn’t actually exist, we’re pretty sure he’d sell millions if he did a crowdfunding campaign right now. We love the tiny toilet paper rolls.

Shark Tank: Girlfriend Edition

Shark Tank: Girlfriend Edition

Anyone in a serious relationship knows that communication and compromise are key to a fruitful partnership. Comedian Stevie Emerson envisions a conversation with his girlfriend is much like the business negotiations on an episode of Shark Tank. We’re just really glad he’s not dating Kevin O’Leary.

They Died Peacefully

They Died Peacefully

There’s nothing funny about dying. But that didn’t stop Dogfood from making this seriously morbid comedy sketch that makes fun of people who try to find something positive to say when they found out a friend lost a loved one.

My Living Nightmare

My Living Nightmare

Kevin James continues to kill it with his YouTube channel, delivering sketch after sketch of hilarious and twisted comedy. In this clip, James plays a real estate agent who can’t help but shake an uncomfortable feeling after visiting a creepy old mansion… in his dreams.

You Got Something There

You Got Something There

You ever have a little food on your face and your friend points it out? Comedic actor Kevin James and his pal experience just that… and a little more, in this hilarious bit we spotted on his new YouTube channel. While you’re there, be sure to check out his Rocky and Star Wars sound guy sketches.

I’m Not a Cake

I’m Not a Cake

Comedian and presenter Bec Hill has a unique bit in her act. She creates silly interactive illustrations for punny, misheard song lyrics, then reveals them them in real time to the songs. Here she performs “When you’re in the club and you’re hungry..,” a follow up to her “When you listen to the radio when you’re hungry.”

Cube

Cube

A cocky assassin prepares to head off on one final mission, but before he heads out, he meets up with a couple of technicians to pick up some equipment. Good Cop Great Cop’s skit is a great parody of a classic spy flick trope – the gadget scene.

Why Brits Get the Good Roles

Why Brits Get the Good Roles

(PG-13: Language) From Stringer Bell to Rick Grimes to Dr. House, so many American character roles are going to British actors (and the occasional Aussie) these days. Key & Peele’s hilarious sketch pokes fun at this Hollywood casting phenomenon, which we refer to as “Britwashing.”

Gene Wilder: Master of Pauses

Gene Wilder: Master of Pauses

Gene Wilder was one of the best comedic actors of all time. With performances in films like Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, and The Producers, his timing and pacing of his speech are still unequaled. Editor Rishi Kaneria and Raging Cinema Extras present some of those perfect moments, minus Willy Wonka.

How to Hide a Yawn

How to Hide a Yawn

Yawning in someone’s face while they tell you a story is considered by many to be one of the rudest things you can do. Daniel Koren is here with a few techniques you can use to avoid such embarrassment, and to conceal your sleepiness and boredom from others.

The Hater Song

The Hater Song

Like most people who post videos on YouTube, musician Madilyn Bailey has been subjected to an endless stream of hateful, poorly spelled comments by 12 year olds. Rather than taking them to heart, she turned their trolling into a song, and so far has racked up over 6 million views as the ultimate sweet revenge.

Lazy Susan

Lazy Susan

Directors Ian Kibbey and Corey Creasey aka Terri Timely’s delightful short film tells the story of two sisters – one who is constantly on the move, and the other one who prefers to watch the world go by. But like the story of the tortoise and the hare, slow and steady often wins the race.

Guys with a YETI

Guys with a YETI

YETI coolers can really come in handy when you need to keep drinks and food cold in the outdoors. But You Betcha’s comedy sketch reminds us that the same can be achieved for much less money, and their products are more of a bro status symbol than anything else.

In Fabric (Trailer)

In Fabric (Trailer)

A dress in a London department store ruins the life of anyone who wears it. A literally killer dress? Sounds like the makings of a B-movie, but if the indie masters at A24 picked it up, it must mean it’s a winner.

The Farewell (Trailer)

The Farewell (Trailer)
