4 Things That Always Make Me Laugh

Do you ever go back to the same video clips over and over again just to get a much needed laugh? I do. These are some of my all time favorites, one going back over 15 years that I remember watching dozens of times. There is so much craziness in the world right now, so many things that aren't funny, it's important to take time to laugh for the joy of laughing. Enjoy!


Clifford
This is one of the strangest movies of all time--a grown Martin Short playing a 10 year old psychopath?--and this scene makes me laugh every time. My husband and I have been known to say to our girls, "Can't you just act like a human girl?"

Another Close Encounter with Ryan Gosling
I met Ryan Gosling one time, but that's beside the point. This recent SNL sketch kills me. Every. Single. Time. Ryan is good, but Kate Mckennin is without a doubt the start of the show.


Lip Sync Battle Melissa McCarthy
I think we all agree that Melissa McCarthy is a national treasure. She brings it big time to this lip sync battle with Jimmy Fallon--more specifically the last lip sync of the clip. If I learned anything from American Idol, it's that it's all about song choice. Melissa wins. Hands down.

Triumph the Insult Comic Dog visits the Return of the Clones (best quality clip I could find)
Not appropriate for kids! This must date back to 2003--I really don't remember--but this was the first Internet video I remember watching over and over again dying laughing. And yes, he sometimes crosses the line, but mostly it is just crazy funny, especially considering it's improv.

Would you leave a link to your favorite funny clips in the comments below? Lets stock pile a huge list of funny clips should we ever need a pick me up. 

p.s. In middle school my bestie and I regularly rented The Best of Gilda Radner and watched it non stop. I can't wait to see the new documentary Love, Gilda.

    I adore Gilda! Her Emily Littela routine cracks me up every time! "mind your toes" I'm dating myself but Tim Conway on Carol Burnett is another treasure. His dentist and elephant routines are just hilarious!

  2. There's no better skit on earth than SNL's "More Cowbell" with Will Farrell! And of course, Chris Farley's "motivational speaker" routine with David Spade and Christina Applegate :)

    1. OK, I had never seen the Obama one and I forgot about the Grape Lady until I heard those noises from her and it came back like riding a bike! It's hard not to laugh--mainly because it's live and the reactions from the ancors back in the station--but man I feel for her at the same time!

  5. ALL the SNL Celebrity Jeopardy skits. All of them. Every time, I laugh so hard I could cry. And the close encounters skit is my all time favorite thing that SNL has ever produced.

    BUT.

    The funniest piece of television I have ever witnessed, which made me laugh until my stomach ached, and which I could watch over and over and over again, is the Reliant Robin episode of Top Gear. I am not a car person, nor am I usually a watcher of Top Gear UK or US, but the first few minutes of this episode are piss-your-pants funny.
