Funniest People on Internet at AdTech

So I’ve been wandering around AdTech in search of funny. There’s not much here. Love ya Chris Anderson, but CNET was more entertaining than your session. Don’t get me wrong- I learned a lot. I noticed you used “bifurcate” and “finger flow,” and that helped our vocabulary.

Daisy Whitney invited me to host “The Internet’s Funniest People” today as the closing keynote event. I’m kinda the Johnny Carson, and we’ve got an all-star cast: Sneezing Panda, David and the Dentist, Charlie Bit My Finger, and Star War’s kids. Wait- never mind. They all canceled. But we do have f’ing Take180, Alex Koll (Revision3, Rooftop Comedy), Ben and Rafi Fine (The Fine Brothers), and Greg Benson (Mediocrefilms). Collectively these funnies have been seen more than the last superbowl and final episode of Mash combined.

Here’s some footage from yesterday. Dang- Benson gets here in 10 minutes and I haven’t showered. Tata for now. We’re performing a “Who’s On First” parody that will either produce some isle ROFLs or awkward silence. It can only go two ways.

Just wrote my short opening monologue from scratch. Nothing like a little urgency to get the creative juices flowing.

  1. Congrats on the Johny Carson-ness. I hope the Who’s on First parody gets you some serious ROFL’s, I can’t see why it wouldn’t. @Alexis those two are hilarious just try to find them on won’t be too hard.

  2. OK, I looked them up. Apparently The Fine Brothers = parodies + sexual innuendo. Take180 looks pretty much like a bunch of spoofs in poor taste too.

    *sigh* I’m so sick of that stuff on YouTube. I guess the appeal to the lowest common denominator sells, but I find it hard to respect creators with so little originality. It makes me feel like a little pawn in their game to collect ad revenue.

    Kudos to creators like nigahiga, Rhett & Link, nalts, happyslip, edbassmaster, etc. who are successful without regurgitating pop culture, gaming the system, or including a bunch of sexual innuendo.

    *end rant*

  3. @alexis:
    This post is about how Nalts thinks that poop on a stick would be hilarious.

    Why do you include him in your list of “creators who are successful without regurgitating pop culture, gaming the system, or including a bunch of sexual innuendo”?

    Poop totally falls under the fourth, implied category of “incredibly immature”.

    @everyone else
    I’m back, it’s been more than a year.

  4. @8 Umm… because the fourth was your criterion, not mine. He still fits my list, along with a bunch of other people I didn’t mention.

    There’s a difference between being silly and immature and just being trashy. Scatological humor certainly isn’t my favorite and he’ll occasionally elicit some eye rolling from me, but Kevin doesn’t usual usually cross the line to where I feel I need to cleanse my brain after watching his stuff unlike content from Shane Dawson, for example.

    I’m just tired of the manipulative pandering and sordid appeals to baser impulses. If I wanted that, I’d buy a TV.

  5. @9

    Whoa, there. Didn’t mean to cause you to go on such a tirade, just to have a bit of humor at Kevin’s expense.

  6. poo has become so contentious around here…

    don’t mind Alexis Brindle he’s into “math”

    welcome back to the blog what’s-his-name posts on sometimes, it’s good to see the arrangement of your letters again.

    frankly, I don’ think Kevin has the guts, I mean, intended to poke a pooey stick – in this case the thought and set up are funnier than the actual deed, rest assure, or at least as far as I can tell, Kevin’s brain filters are still in working order.

    Had he actually done what he said he intended it would have confirmed in the minds of a good number of people that he harbors a fecal fetish. Not a group of fans I’d want to play with.

    That aside, let’s pontificate on some of the more important issues of the day… youtube requiring a captcha for every comment entered – that nonsense has to stop!

    It’s going to kill ratings and revenue, especially the little guy.

    Not only does youtube want me to watch ads they now want me to take off my shoes at the gate to see if I am a terrorist, er… I mean spammer.

    What’s next, a magic x-ray machines to read my intentions, er… i mean a registered address and phone number before I log in?

    What say yous?
