More Comedy that's hard to pronounce... but less beardy

Kumail Nanjiani, his comedy isn't the most innovative
-it's just observational based rants- but it's funny.
plus he often opens for Zach Galifianakis.

Yeah, so they'd share an bill, "it's Galifianakis with Nanjiani!"
I wish I could take my grandparents to their show- just to
watch them try and pronounce it.

Japan is insane.
This is not what I expected with little red riding hood.

Japan +1
US and Pakistan relations +6

Kat Power Special

I'm sure you've all heard Piano Kat plays them off by now,
with a variety of clips.

But this is the best one Evar.

Not a usual update day or time..
but USA +1

I have a guest staying at the house,
so I don't have a lot of time to write sillyness
So let's just jump in okay?

This is a Japanese ad for Dole, Banana, and Mcdonalds...
and insanity.

(2 quick bits of tasty sillyness.)

and as a counter point...
this video inspired the last treatment t was working on, called "A Dance of Shadows"
The Vide gets a bit slow towards the end- but It's neat.

Ernie Kovacs is a genius

Many people think absurdist comedy was invented in
England with Monty Python in 1969
Perhaps with The Goon Show maybe? (where Peter Sellers got his start!)

For my mind surreal or absurdist comedy began
in the 1950's we saw the beginning, right here
in the US of A with the Ernie Kovacs' Show.

Sadly like a lot of live television, little of his best material survives.
but this...

This is the Narubi trio
Ernie is the one with the gigantic cigar (which was his signature)

USA +1

Monkey Monkey

This is just neat.
I think I saw this on TV at some point.
I believe it was for BBC's coverage of the Beijing Olympics

It looks like they hired Jamie Hewlett to do it....
So it's awesome.
It is Awesome
Accept it.

This ain't trash so no points.

Simon Pegg's very little thingy.

Simon Pegg
Obviously you are all Simon Pegg fan's
so I don't have to tell you about
His blog, How awesome the movie "Shaun of the Dead" is;
How great the TV show "Spaced" is;
or how he was the best part of the new "Star Trek".
You know it.

(and if you don't your on Netflix right now
you ignorant toffee nosed splat monkey!)

Anyway here's a little short film he did a loooong time ago
with some friends- about a astronaut and his dog.
