BACK AT WORK
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.
