I’m sure that there have been enough awkward pauses at some type of holiday related gathering that you desperately need a laugh. Whether it be an office Christmas party or the office Christmas party of a family member where you have no idea why you’re going at all, or the ambush Christmas family get-together where you thought you would never see certain people again but you did and they got you something when you didn’t… Whatever the case may be, The 5 Most Intentionally Funny Videos This Week should provide the type of mirth you’re looking for.
1. Jon Dore and Rory Scovel make their “Annual Something Hilarious and Amazing Appearance on Conan” and didn’t disappoint.
2. Abbott & Costello’s classic comedy routine (that’s right, it was called a comedy routine at one point) “Who’s on First?” gets a fresh update from Jimmy Fallon, LNJF announcer Stephen Higgins, Billy Crystal, Fallon writer AD Miles, and Jerry Seinfeld.
3. Puddin’ with Eddie Pepitone and Matt Oswalt pulls out all the stops not only by having Weird Al Yankovic, Dana Gould, Patton Oswalt, Colin Hanks and more, but by parodying “It’s a Wonderful Life.”
5. There are two trailers in this one trailer for post-apocalyptic comedy This Is The End and they’re both really funny even though they are now factually inaccurate.
