By now, most of my online friends know that in addition to being a writer, I play a mean rhythm guitar and love to sing—blues, torch songs, R&B, soul, classic Motown, Beatles, Stones, the list is endless. I've logged countless hours performing music, including some of my own tunes and even opened for *Gasp* Timothy Leary at a local Body, Mind & Spirit expo. Crazy, man!
Another dimension to my wacky life is my love of comedy. In South Lake Tahoe, I wrote skits and co-produced a comedy show that showcased at the late, great Del Webb's High Sierra.
For me, it all started with Sarah Silverman
Sarah Silverman in "I'm F#@$ing Matt Damon!"
I'm just glad I'd set down my glass of wine, since I'm not sure my monitor would have survived the spit-take! Not to be outdone, Jimmy Kimmel
Jimmy Kimmel in "I'm F#@$ing Ben Affleck!"
Watching these led to the discovery of the website Funnyordie.com
There's cute and silly, like this one revealing a glimpse inside http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0748620/
What's great is these aren't just shaky videos featuring kitties dancing or sea gulls stealing cat food (okay, that one was pretty funny).
These are quality productions, reminding me of the amazing videos SNL has produced over the years. Warning, adult content! Check out Tim Roth in "Brostitute":
Now, Ralph Macchio in his latest role:
As can be expected, Funny or Die is extremely popular and this year was picked up by HBO. Another website getting attention is www.istudio.com
Seems there's a treasure-trove of funny out there on the web. Since laughter really is the best medicine, I say, "Bring it On!"
Now it's your turn to share. Any funny videos that rated a spit-take? Do share!
Chiron loves to laugh, sing and dance. Give her a glass of wine, a guitar and a smile and she'll be entertained all night long!
