Guys, we've officially entered YouTube's Comedy Week, which is a whole week of people being funny at you on YouTube. Here is a video about it featuring various people who will or won't make you laugh, including Sarah Silverman, Will.i.am (Yup!), Jenna Marbles, Daily Grace's Grace Helbig, the Sklar Brothers, and more. So much more! Four minutes and twenty-eight seconds' worth of more!
A whole week of comedy can be a lot to take, so let's try to break this down in a somewhat organized fashion. This list is by no means a MANDATE or some sort of treatise about what is funny and what is not. These are just some little recommendations to help you wade through the many, many channels, comedy groups, and individual comedians participating in Comedy Week.
So. Let's dive into this:
Miles Jai is participating in YouTube's Comedy Week, and you would do well to keep him on your radar. Here's a video of him showing us 40 expressions, including one for the greatest love of all, macaroni and cheese. I first found out about Miles Jai when Willam (formerly of RuPaul's Drag Race) and the lovely Courtney Act gave him a transfashionable makeover.
Honorable mention: Willam's Beatdown. This online show is mean and you will love it because you are mean, too. Willam rots my soul, but he makes me laugh. So.
All of them.
But mostly the ones saying "not funny," because come on. That's totally subjective! I didn't find a good two thirds of the people involved in the intro video remotely funny, but that doesn't mean they don't have their own loyal following of people who disagree with me.
Also "Where's [insert name of semi-obscure YouTube comedian]????????????" Every single time a list is made of any group of people within any sort of industry, there's always the angry mob demanding to know why their favorite comedian/millennial fire breathing cute animal tattoo artist/hot woman in tech/hot man in tech/hot toddler in tech/mom who does it all/porn star is not included.
Oh, and also puns using "week" and "weak." Avoid those most of all.
That said, let us know which comedians you're looking forward to watching this week, and which you think should have been included.
