Hey look, another week and another Funny Human! Great. Let’s talk about Guy Branum, a standup comic who’s had gigs writing on Chelsea Lately, Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell, and Awkward. Let’s get into it and watch a clip of him doing standup as a part of the Comedians of Chelsea Lately tour.
Yes! Mean, clever, and confrontational. I like how he keeps calling the audience “AUDIENCE,” you know? Real good. Here’s another standup clip, one that starts off with some jokes about hipsters which aren’t cliched and boring, which is hard to do!
Guy’s segment, No More Mr. Nice Gay, on Totally Biased was a highlight on that program full of highlights. This installment features his take on the Comedy Central Roast of James Franco; he dishes out ferocious roast jokes that remain inventive and smart, a rarity in the field.
Guy’s got almost 40,000 followers on Twitter. Are you one of them? If not, be one of them after reading this column! Here’s why:

Guy used to host a web series called The Factuary which is both educational and informational. I like this series! You would too! The show patiently and eloquently breaks down topics like the Illuminati, Yom Kippur, and feminism, which is covered in the video embedded below!
That’s it for this week! I’ll talk to you soon, have a good one, everybody.
