‘Ba dum tss’: One Small Joke, One Big Laugh
From New York comedian Evan Krumholz comes a quick hit that’s good for a Wednesday LOL.
Simple, imaginative, and relatable, his contribution checks all boxes for a strong piece of sketch. Should he have ended things right after the button? Yes, probably, but the merit of the idea and ninety-percent of the execution made up for the last ten that fell a tad flat.
As mid-form digital video (8-15 minutes) becomes a more common contribution on premium streaming outlets like go90 and Watchable, this sort of to-the-point extended blackout reminds us comedy fans why we came to the internet in the first place.
The dominion of modern online video was assembled on a bed of dumb little jokes, and we should love them still.
