Hook fans: This sketch comedy video is for you.
The team at Yahoo’s SketchY weekly comedy web series just dropped an anvil on the sports world, and it’s amazing.
Thank you for your brilliance, Amy Schumer.
When it came to sketch comedy shows in the ‘90s, SNL, The Kids in the Hall, MADtv and In Living Color ruled the airwaves, but there were also a few other shows that helped launch some very famous careers.
Second City presents Life As We Know It, also featuring baby-faced Brad Sherwood and Ryan Stiles from Who’s Line Is It Anyway?.
Let’s work together to create a collection the best underrated sketch comedy out there. Add a video below, but try to keep it to stuff that might be new to people. So, like, no Dead Parrot Sketch. OK LET’S DO THIS. Read More ›

You wonder why Simon Pegg doesn’t have a 9-to-5… [Ed. note: Apropos of nothing, why not treat yourself to this classic sketch from the brilliant late ’90s British sketch comedy show Big Train?] Watch Video ›
This is an all too familiar feeling. [Ed. note: This is from the first series of an Australian sketch comedy show called The Micallef Programme that seems like it would be way more fun to watch than Godforsaken Saturday Night Live.] (Via reddit.) Watch Video ›
This hilarious video by comedy group A Week of Kindness (featuring Dan Hopper of BestWeekEver.tv) provides an answer for that question we all find ourselves asking at some point or another: “I got horses. What do I do with them?” Horse Lift! Watch Video ›
This is the only way James Cameron can eat his food. Except when he does it there’s more explosions and each meal takes 3 hours. I’m hungry, is it lunch time? Watch Video ›
If you need B Roll, They Got it! Watch Video ›
Aspen and Wendy are effete straight dudes (from new and old money, respectively) livin’ the life of the young, rich, and atrocious in L.A. Wait for the scene at the club to understand why *some* of us prefer quiet nights at home. Ahem. View Media ›
Nothing spells drama like go karts and Italian stereotypes! We love the idea, but we’ll wait patiently until Dame Judi Dench scores a cameo as Diddy Kong. Watch Video ›
A filthy, bizarre, and ultimately hilarious setup in which the Murder, She Wrote star serves as the go-to Private Dick regarding matters of …well, the dick. Angela Lansbury looking like an Asian burn victim with a mustache? Aw, come on, you guys, this is too weird for its own good. (That being said, when do we get the second episode???) Watch Video ›
Doctor J. Marcus treats his patients with common sense, ruling out the use of “fancy beeping machines” and all that nonsense. Ginger ale and saltines: the eternal solution to ailments and Diabetes. View Media ›
When water’s too bland and soda’s too sweet, there’s always butter water, which is like a milkshake made from heart attacks. Incidentally, this is what Paula Deen refers to when she says to “just add water.” View Media ›
“Motherlovers” may, indeed, have been the best part of this weekend’s SNL, but we think the commercial spoof about Moms mispronouncing the names of celebrities comes in a close second. And now that Mom’s finally coming around to Twitter, wait ‘til she gets a load of Kashi Thatcher’s tweets! View Media ›
If Tilda Swinton, Pete Sampras, and dragon with a plunger for a hat performed late-night sketch comedy together, this would be its opening. If we may suggest our own offbeat cast member choices: Mario Batali! Sally Jesse Raphael! Marla Gibbs! The youngest brother from Malcolm in the Middle! Victoria Jackson! Viagra! View Media ›
Absurdist sketch comedy that approaches the sublime. This is both the funniest and the most fucked-up thing you’ll see this week. Enjoy. Read More ›
Kristen Wiig is arguably SNL’s new Will Ferrell: an “everywoman” with enough versatility to effortlessly turn nuanced characters into fan favorites. Here are ten examples of Kristen at her finest. We applaud the choices, although the list forgets one crucial sketch: Virgania Horsen’s Hot Air Balloon Rides.
Mark Wahlberg is not a fan of the recent SNL sketch, in which Andy Samberg - as Wahlberg - emotes to barnyard animals. Wahlberg bemoaned the show’s having “not been funny for a long time,” especially in comparison to the days of “Eddie Murphy…and Joe Piscopo and Bill Murray.” Hey Mark, if you like Piscopo so much, why don’t you hire him for your next bar mitzvah?

HBO is hoping to do with British import Little Britain what it did with New Zealand’s Flight of the Conchords: make the weird, niche-y smash in its native homeland a stateside success. You know a character-driven sketch show is on HBO when it includes two ‘roid-happy, totally-not-gay gym buddies with eensy weensy pencil d*cks. Read More ›
The Apple Sisters, a 1940’s-era musical sketch group based in New York, love them some corn! (Because it tastes like candy!) One thing I can now cross off my bucket list: seeing a trio of young ladies showering each other in niblets. Watch Video ›
