First off, my intention is not to fight you on this. You have more cars than I have dollars, and so I know I don’t stand a chance legally, and on top of that, I don’t really understand how legal stuff works. But the truth is you kind of fucked up my shit and I need to talk to you about it.
In 2007 my good friend Travis Irvine was running for mayor of his home town, Bexley, Ohio. He asked for help making him a funny campaign commercial. So together, me and my pal Travis composed, performed and recorded an original campaign jingle onto my four track (we [...]
My Damn Channel's new live comedy show, My Damn Channel Live, is premiering a week from today at 4 on Youtube and will air every day after that day, also at 4 on Youtube. As host Beth Hoyt explain in the video above, the show will feature interactive segments with viewers, celebrity interviews, and clips from other My Damn Channel series. Good for Youtube for following Yahoo!'s lead and getting into the original content game. And good for all of us for getting more comedy to watch online.
We'll see whatever movie you want, Weird Al, just don't tell us whose blood that is. More Tim & Eric's Billion Dollar Movie pledge videos below, featuring Paul Rudd, Andy Samberg, Rashida Jones, Fred Armisen, Seth Green, Natasha Leggero, and Michael Ian Black. It's a regular "who's who" of comedians who know how to sign their name!
Unless you are as deeply terrified of stop-motion animation as I am (it just don't look right), you can check out Robot Chicken's new webseries Stoopid Monkeywhen it premieres this Friday. Created in partnership with YouTube, Seth Green and Matthew Senreich's new weekly show will be a mix of stop-motion and live-action, with characters Stoopid Monkey, Biggie and QT interacting with humans. Horrified humans just screaming and screaming to get away from their little jerky limbs.
Jim Norton took to the red carpet of the Grammys to ask stars from Steve Martin to Adele to hold up his non-nominated 2011 standup album Despicable and related merchandise onstage. It's a pretty funny idea, and it highlights the fact that you rarely see successful album or book releases from comedians these days without a high-profile promotional stunt behind them. It seems that it's barely even worth writing and releasing a funny book if you don't also have a great, original idea to promote it virally online.
Chris Gethard's book is coming out Jan. 10, and he's gearing up to throw down with every other human being who has ever written a book. Already he's taken on Tim Ferris, Malcolm Gladwell, and Khaled Hosseini, AND set his own toaster on fire. More authors will undoubtedly be trashed in the coming hours, and with them, more household appliances set aflame. Tweet your author requests with the hashtag #GethardKingofAuthors and sit back to enjoy the show.

Pretty funny video, right? Yeah, it's being made into a movie. Paramount is "in talks" with Seinfeld writers Alec Berg and David Mandel to develop the feature film. This news basically amounts to a re-enactment of the video, with Paramount as the human voice, and all of us collectively playing the dog. "You know movies, right?" "Uh-huh." "We're gonna make a movie, in real theaters, with writers from Seinfeld…based on a one-minute YouTube video." "Aaaaaaauugh!"
The folks over at YouTube have just started a new project called Videocrush. Essentially, they'll be putting up new playlists of female-centric comedy every week. The first one: music video girls. There are certainly worse ways to run out the clock before the holiday weekend is here than watching two straight hours of ladies singing parody songs.
