A man went to see his doctor, who told him he didn’t have long to live.
Shocked, he demanded , “Well, how long have I got?”
The doctor said, “Ten…”
Cutting him off, the man said, “What, years? Months? Days!!!???”
Looking at his watch the doctor continued, “… nine… eight…”
One of the funniest writers out there is Dennard Dayle aka Extra Evil. His style is this bizarre mix of abstract cultural references with wry sarcasm and earnestness.
He's written columns for The New Yorker, is a regular at 1-900-HOTDOG, released a book called Everything Abridged, and has a weekly humor Substack (the latest is linked below).
Check him out, and enjoy!
Recruiting old blood and questioning a crew,
Inevitable idiocy and madness ensues!
This week, the party are sent on an urgent mission to interrogate a ship's Captain...
So join us now as we bring back this behemoth..
A fast paced comedy deathmatch with strong D&D overtones.
Rachel Sennot and Emma Seligman are national treasures and we should sacrifice one of our offspring to Paimon to keep them both alive for the next 15 to 20 to 25 years a least.
The funniest #movie I've seen since The Nun 2.
Our dreampunk saga flies onward! "Guardian" (Glitch 14) defensively hovers over the increasingly intertwined lives of a ragtag bunch of denizens in cyberpunk hellhole NYC.
Glitch 14 is part of our Patron-exclusive bonus series of weekly bonus tales. It pairs with 14. "Bee". (The #'s always match).
TIP: 👂 to each glitch after the day's episode.
It’s another #AudioDramaSunday, so it’s time to toot about the shows featured & highlighted in the 55th issue of The End.
The first is a personal recommendation from our curator, @evoterra:
🇺🇸🏳️🌈🏃♂️ • Gay Future, a dramatized #comedy series from Gay Future Productions
The year is 2062 and everyone is gay.
It’s a conservative’s worst nightmare: a totalitarian government rules over what’s left of North America to spread its insidious gay agenda.
Humanity’s only hope for a rebellion rests on the shoulders of a precocious teenage boy who harbors a dark secret:
A new podcast adaptation of a recently discovered, never released YA novel by Mike Pence.
• Series complete as of March 14, 2019

Evo's notes: I love absurd comedies, and this one is more absurd than most. Bonus: It's well produced. And did I mention absurd?

Ryan Reynolds would like to talk to all you ladies that go nuts every year over pumpkin spice.
And yes, it's 'ladies'. Because no real man drinks pumpkin spice.

Todays episode of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya is the last one from season 2, so the rest of the show is back to season 1. Can't imagine trying to watch these in release order... #Crunchyroll #Kadokawa #anime #HaruhiSuzumiya #Haruhi #涼宮ハルヒの憂鬱 #涼宮ハルヒ #comedy #TBGN #SSHITAnime #SundayMorning

He’s Coming To Me: Episode 7 Part 3
"I'm a great fan of Henri Bergson's theory of humour, which is about inflexibility, and the point about Jesus Christ, he would not have been inflexible. He would have been infinitely flexible, because I think he would have had no ego. It's the ego that makes us inflexible, and that's what we tend to laugh at in character comedy."
This is the audience for NPR voice’s #ViewFromNowhere
And Duchamp's humour is subtle comedy, at that.
The signature "R. Mutt" on the piece "Fountain" refers to one character in the comic strip "Mutt and Jeff", and the "R" stands for "Richard", which sounds like the slang term for "moneybags" in French.

"...This is what nefarious #Cult leaders do, rely on cultural tropes that have become normalized to drum up support among followers they've groomed. I began the week hoping these allegations would mean a #MeToo-style reckoning for influencers across the board, now I can only imagine how far he's willing to go to save his own skin, with a growing group of followers..."
It looks like Kyon has finally put his foot down in The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. Or, more accurately, he shows Haruhi that he will not always support everything she does... #Crunchyroll #Kadokawa #anime #HaruhiSuzumiya #Haruhi #涼宮ハルヒの憂鬱 #涼宮ハルヒ #comedy #TBGN #SSHITAnime #SaturdayMorning

Nikolai lives with his family in a cybervillage on Mars. He calmly runs a robotic economy until the head of a large corporation arrives on the planet, who wants to build a new factory on the site of the village.

Es war ein gelungener Auftakt und auch eine erstklassige Werbung für die Springmaus in #Bonn.
Die Karten für den »Mönch mit der Klatsche« sind gekauft.
False names are just a wise precaution in a semi-apocalyptic world, right?

#Watching THE KING OF COMEDY
Martin Scorsese's cringe worthy black #comedy features one of Robert De Niro's creepiest performances along with one of the worst #80s suits ever put on #film.
Predates and predicts incels, toxic fandom, Youtube "stardom", and celebrity hero worship.
I don't remember a time I actually laughed, but it is funny in a "This person is nuts" kind of way. Then you go on twitter and realize Rupert Pupkin is actually kind of tame, comparatively.
Sandra Bernhard is unhinged. Jerry Lewis is actually sympathetic as the put-upon host.
An outlier in the Scorsese oeuvre, but still a very effective one.

‘There are dozens of Russell Brands’: female comedians say abuse is rife
Many women working in industry say allegations only scratch the surface of its culture of misogyny
“When I was 18 I had an incident with a powerful male comedian in his 30s,” says Lucy (name changed), a female comic in her early 30s. “It was really harrowing and triggering.

I'll be at Book Fair Australia, Sydney Showgrounds 14th-15th October, selling copies of the first two books of the South Hertling Chronicles series. Come along and say hello, and buy some very odd Australian spec fiction.
Russell Brand has postponed his live U.K. shows in light of the allegations against him. A performance on Saturday night went ahead a few hours after allegations of rape and sexual assault were published. Brand was given a standing ovation by the crowd of 2,000, however he, his management and venue bosses have decided to cancel remaining shows. Deadline has more.
On today's #GreatestGen, a deceased crewmember returns to the Voyager with a new face, a new race & she has Harry's hormones all over the place. It's no fun & games for the Borgs kids when Seven's in charge of the day's play.

There's a Channel 4 "Dispatches" exclusive announced for tonight, about UK comedy people. Dispatches doesn't usually get shown on Saturdays.
Russell Brand has already put out a YT explaining he was "promiscuous in the past" but Popbitch says there's more than one. In case you've missed what Brand is up to these days since the Sachs thing, he's a Covid denier, anti-vax, great reset, the whole shebang. Musk and Tate have defended him so far.
It's worth noting that allegations about #RussellBrand have been doing the rounds in the #UK #Comedy scene for quite a while now, but once again, libel laws have provided protection to persons dubious.
And the chickens are a-roostin'.
