As Thrill pointed out in the open thread this week, Sacha Baron Cohen is hilarious. I prefer his Ali G. persona to Borat, but Borat has his moments. I thought that his stint in the sun was over after the Borat movie since, damn, who is stupid enough to fall for that schtick now? Ahem … According to the trailer to his new show, he reeled some more in.
Anyway, it got me thinking about some of the hand-wringing about comedians not being very funny. I don’t see it. They may avoid certain douchey topics like rape and pedos (believe me, I can laugh at that shit too, but it stopped being actually funny), but I still find humor. Last week we went to my Mom’s for a few days and we always put on the satellite radio comedy channels for the five hour trip. They are small bites of humor, but we laughed the whole way there and back. Makes the trip seem at least a little shorter.
Let’s laugh this week.
- Funny songs – These are songs that are supposed to be funny or are just funny because, well, they just are.
- Comedy bits – Play some funny comedy bits and don’t pull any punches. Douchey shit is OK too. This is another week where we can have a few laughs at others’ expense
