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 Kanye’s “Can’t Tell Me Nothin’ ” in the middle of a farm, atop a tractor. Will Farrell’s Funny or Die Comedy Tour has the giants of vid-sketch comedy—including Galifianakis, Demetri Martin, and Nick Swardson—doing their thing onstage. Hopefully, that will include Galifianakis doing his adorable rendition of Anita Baker’s “You Bring Me Joy.”
