Just in time for the premiere of Breaking Bad, series star Dean Norris teamed with Funny Or Die to fill the internet with spoilers. And we mean that literally. Norris actually spoils the ending to a number of films and TV shows, among which are: Star Wars, The Usual Suspects, M. Night Shyamalan movies, Contact, Citizen Kane, Total Recall (the original), The Crying Game and Game of Thrones (Season 3 big spoiler!)...
Humorously, the Funny or Die guys have just transplanted Diddy into scenes that actually aired as part of Downton Abbey, which means we get to see Diddy call the Dowager Countess “bitchy” and also get to see him interrupt plenty of big moments in the Downton universe. Some of the moments are weirder than they are funny, but if you like Diddy’s larger-than-life personality, the video is worth a watch.
Veronica Mars has proven that a cancelled show can have a big screen comeback if the fans want it enough and are willing to pay. Funny or Die had some fun with that idea and came up with a couple of other shows that might be due for a comeback. The site humorously envisioned the Kickstarter campaigns for a handful of shows and even went as far as to bring in stars from the series to participate in pitch videos for their "Kickstart or Die" project, which includes Family Matters, Sliders, Wings, Dinosaurs and Darkwing Duck.
Happy Thanksgiving! Holidays are a time for family but that doesn't mean they are always a time of civility. Often quite the opposite. It can be a pretty potent potion when blood relations mix on these special, but thankfully spread out, occasions and, as you can probably imagine, things tended to get a little heated at the David household during the holidays. Here's a taste with Larry David's Thanksgiving Special for Funny or Die...
For years, MTV has encouraged their viewers to get out there and vote, telling them to "fight for your rights," "rock the vote" and "choose or lose." Now the cast of Jersey Shore is getting in on the act. Through their Power of 12 campaign, MTV has teamed with Funny or Die to bring the cast of Jersey Shore for a bit of political discourse. Either that, or this is simply what happens when the Jersey Shore cast loses interest in GTL and decides to delve into their thoughts on politics and the election process as it pertains to individual votes.
HBO's The Wire never got its shark-jumping musical episode. But now, thanks to Funny or Die, you can see what the musical version of The Wire you never asked for might have looked like. Needless to say, it's pretty disturbing, but then again, so was The Wire during some of its darker moments.
Zach Galifianakis' Between Two Ferns had its first big television special on Sunday night. Between Two Ferns: A Fairy Tale of New York was the lead in to Comedy Central's second annual Comedy Awards and featured some great guests like Jon Stewart, Sir Richard Branson and Tina Fey. The network released previews of the first two interviewees but the spot with Fey was saved for the big show. And rightfully so since she sums up the entire series so, uh, nicely. Take a look.
The popular Funny or Die series Zach Galifianakis' Between Two Ferns has been turned into an upcoming TV special called BTF: A Fairy Tale of New York which is set to air ahead of the channel's second annual Comedy Awards. The special will feature celebrity guests as always, this time with appearances from Jon Stewart, Sir Richard Branson and Tina Fey. Here are clips from the first two followed by a really telling quote from the third.
The walk and talk. It's widely known as the Aaron Sorkin signature move. Sure, other writers have employed this technique before the Academy Award winning writer of The Social Network but it is hard to imagine his Emmy winning series The West Wing without picturing the cast in almost perpetual motion. Okay, that might be a stretch (which you should always do before walking), however, it still serves as the basis for this clever and chuckle worthy Funny or Die PSA.
Get ready for a barage of plays on "Winter is Coming" since Game of Thrones makes its long awaited return to television screens this weekend. This Sunday the journey commences with "The North Remembers" but first it's important to remember, that no matter what house you're from, there is 'Nowhere to Hide.' Oh, and Funny or Die takes aim at Mad Men and Game of Thrones with their 'Sunday is Coming' sketch.
Funny or Die, the web pet project of Adam McKay and Will Ferrell’s Gary Sanchez Productions, was a natural progression from their sketch-comedy roots. However, what began as a place to showcase viral video antics quickly became a sandbox for a ton of different comedians and actors to test their chops. The latest playlist is a glorious spoof on 80s television and features some totally rad forgotten stars. So, what’s on the Funny or Die 1986 line-up?
After one of the quietest debut seasons, Happy Endings still somehow ended up with a second and good thing too, because now it seems like the sitcom is on quite a roll. ABC made the right choice staying with the young and promising show and just last week gave it a full sophomore season, which means plenty of time to hang out in Chicago with the funny six-some. The good news continues as ABC has also lined up an awesome guest star to play a love interest for one lucky member of the group.
By far the best offering, however, is a reunion of sorts for the beloved Peanuts gang. They've grown up and filled out, but they're still giving Charlie Brown a hard time. And it turns out, you can only pull that fucking football trick so many times before a person snaps.
Every now and then it's important to take a break from the intense competition of the TV news reporting world and take a step back to just enjoy a funny, television related video. It doesn't hurt that said funny video, by the geniuses over at Funny or Die, contains a few of TV's brightest young talents in a segment called 'Child Star Psychologist' starring Mad Men's Draper daughter Kiernan Shipka.
