If you had asked me a year ago, I might have told you that comedy troupes would dominate the most-subscribed channels on YouTube. It’s a medium built for comedians that perform before audiences on a regular basis. They know what’s funny and what’s topical.
The problem is that just as most stand-up comedians can’t do what Mark Day does in online video, most comedy troupes don’t adjust to the medium (shorter content, more subtle, good editing, no pauses for audience laughter). They also don’t often take the time to promote their work… upload a few videos of live comedy and then toss in the towel.
Enter Atlanta’s “The Woodcreek Faction.” Check them out on YouTube or on their official website. Here’s their latest video: Hitler Trick Bike (thanks to Nutcheese). It’s refreshingly funny comedy with an edge but not a sharp one. Warning- you will be walking around all day screaming, “Hitler Hiking Boooots.”
