Curb Your Enthusiasm is one of my all-time favorite comedies. I was a huge fan of Seinfeld growing up, so Curb was a natural fit; it also took me a few seasons until I discovered that George Costanza’s character on Seinfeld is actually based on Larry’s actual life, which made Curb even funnier since George is one of the best TV characters of all-time, and that’s not up for debate. With eight incredibly hilarious seasons already in the Curb Your Enthusiasm books, the door is still tentatively open at HBO for Larry to do a ninth, and as a huge fan all I can do is hope. In the meantime, at least we have reruns and thousands of hilarious Curb Your Enthusiasm videos like the one above – when Larry meets the flamoyant Greg – to keep us entertained!
It’s still hard to believe Robin Williams passed away – I think it will be a long, long time before it really sets in for anyone. Just after I heard late last night, I thought of some of my favorite movies with Robin in it and thought, “man, what a great career he had.” It wasn’t but a few minutes later as I read the breaking news on his death that I came across about 10+ more hilarious movies that I loved him in that I had completely forgotten about; Robin easily ranks, and will forever rank as one of the funniest human beings ever to walk the planet. Since he brought so much laughter to everyone, I can’t think of a better way to honor him then by showing some of his best stuff right here on SQ. Why you may not have caught him on Whose Line Is It Anyway – an excellent show btw – it was of course yet another gem in his insanely hysterical and accomplished career. You know you’re doing a good job on Whose Line when you’re not only making the audience laugh, but the entire stand-up crew as well. Enjoy the video, and we miss you already Robin!
If we were playing Family Fued, and trust me, you’d want me on your team, what would be the number one answer to the question of what’s the most popular BBC network television show in America? If you guessed Top Gear, the awesome and always hilarious show about cars featuring Richard Hammond and Jeremy Clarkson, then you’d almost certainly be right – at the very least it would definitely be in the top three. What makes the show so spectacular isn’t just the fact that these two normal looking guys get to test drive the world’s most expensive cars – that’s an awesome draw, don’t get me wrong – but the fact that the two together are just hilarious. They’re also pretty funny on their own, as you’ll see from the stellar funny pic below!
