Bentzen Ball is 9 days away. It’s time to familiarize yourself with funny. We combed through YouTube (Vimeo is more of art artsy video service than a useful source of funny) for some under-the-radar and highly viewed clips of funny people being funny. Late night appearances, sitcom outtakes, weirdo DIY videos, a little bit of everything. This will make the remainder of your Monday workday better. Netflix/Amazon/Hulu mandatory viewing

Tig Notaro

Tig is best on Conan. Sorry other late night hosts?

Rosie O’Donnell

Stern and Rosie. It’s not like Tig and Conan. Start around minute 3. It’s a long video but there’s no need to watch, just listen.


Rob Corddry

Let’s get away from interviews and back to the 80s.


We all like to treat ourselves. Treat yo self with outtakes.
