We’re not sure if unintentional humor is a term in any dictionary, but, if it is, they should have one of the definitions just be Mitt Romney. He just can’t seem to help falling into situations that seem like they’re written by Oscar winning political satirist screenwriter Armando Iannucci. The opposite of that is, of course, The 5 Most Intentionally Funny Videos This Week, which includes things like stand-up while hanging off a tower and misuse of time travel.
1. Tig Notaro made an appearance on Conan to open up about the tragedies that have befallen her the last few months including being diagnosed with cancer and make it incredibly funny.
2. Rory Scovel, while on the Super Serious Show at the Moontower Comedy & Oddity Festival in Austin, TX, decided to show Austin weird by opening his set by climbing a tower not at all meant for climbing.
5. Comedy Central sketch show Key & Peele did their take on college football player names that we’re sure are 100% real. (Editor’s note: Hey, I know that guy on the left! That’s L.A. sportscaster and friend Bill Seward, along with former Lakers announcer Joel Meyers…)
