We just want these comedians to have something to do
The best part about the recently ended writers strike was that it lasted long enough for some idle comedians to go a little stir-crazy. And that meant lots of short videos produced on handheld camcorders collected at places like FunnyorDie.com: Will Farrell being harassed by toddler-landlord Pearl, for example, or Zach Galifianakis covering Kanyes Cant Tell Me Nothin in the middle of a farm, atop a tractor. Will Farrells Funny or Die Comedy Tour has the giants of vid-sketch comedyincluding Galifianakis, Demetri Martin, and Nick Swardsondoing their thing onstage. Hopefully, that will include Galifianakis doing his adorable rendition of Anita Bakers You Bring Me Joy.
