This week on Things That Make Me Laugh...
I found this heartbreaking documentary over on the JASH Network/buhhhhhhhhhhhhh Youtube channel. JASH network is comprised of Sarah Silverman, Michael Cera, Tim and Eric, and Reggie Watts. buh is the sister channel that puts up great comedy from like minded people (and friends?). You'll see familiar faces like Paul Scheer, Hannibal Buress, Jenny Slate and more.
Nick Thune wasn't a familiar face to me but I had heard his voice on multiple podcasts, most recently on Comedy Bang! Bang! episode 202. Funny episode, especially if you'd like to hear Philip Seymour Hoffman fucking Paul Giamatti.
Back to the reason we are here.
"Disarmed" is the story of a comedian who tries to overcome his life's greatest setback. A broken arm. You might think this is a little silly, but have you ever seen a person with a broken limb preform on the live stage? YEAH, me neither. If you got the 13 minutes and want to laugh, think and cry, give it a watch!
A few of my favorite quotes:
"He was a famous basketball player, he played for the Wizards."
"And maybe someday he'll be able to get back up on that bunk bed and light his fart. It sounds so stupid, but I feel like I can almost smell his fart...And it smells good."
Nick Thune - "Disarmed"
This TTMML isn't “HAHAHAHAH” funny, it's more, “huh that's interesting and this tickles my insides” funny.
Paul F. Tompkins is someone I have grown to find hilarious and respect as a human. He's in my top two comedians who make their way into Comedy Bang Bang episodes with his many characters, from Ice. T to CAKE BOSS (...cake boss). He also has his own podcast, Paul F. Tompcasat, which I haven't given the time of day yet. I'm awful, but there are too many podcasts.
Anywho, I'm not here to tell you all his life's work, but merely to highlight the Youtube interview series, “Speakeasy with Paul F. Tompkins and Guests”. Centered in a speakeasy looking bar, PFT and guest have a specialty drink and talk. It's not solely around the promotion of a project, which I can't stand, but goes into many aspects of their life’s work.
Here are some of my favorite episodes, with one embedded below.

If you've been keeping up with my recent posting, I did a few TTMML posts with Jason Nash Vines. He's not the only one out there making hilarious six second skits. Arguably Will Sasso's Vines are even better. Here is a YouTube compilation video of
all some(?) of his world famous (over 2 million views already) Lemon Videos.
I was just watching the CBB Podcast live Youtube stream and Mike Hanford (@MikeHanford) made an appearance with the snow thrashin' character, Ducky Powell. Turns out he is a member in the group, The Birthday Boys, that made this hilarious parody of Bones Brigade/Any skateboard documentary, titled POOLJUMPERS. Just like last night's TTMML this video involves the Summer and things that are funny. You will most likely enjoy it, if you're even close to being worth your weight in dildos.
The B-boys also have a show coming to IFC sometime in the future, you can watch them announce it here.
Are you ready from some Summer Funny? It's going to be funny. It will also be summer related. Don't be surprised if it's a little bit sexy too. Watch this funny skit from the comedy group, Simply Unemployable. Check out/subscribe/like/comment/high-five their Youtube Channel. They are also on Twitter.
