It’s A Political Comedy Video With All Of Your Favorite People!

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

We have no idea who the people behind “Funny or Die” are… but apparently they are very well connected in Hollywood and Washington? This thing has its moments, such as Mike Gravel quietly reading the Pentagon Papers and Madame Peggington Noonanshire simply showing her Shining face. [via Fishbowl DC]

  • CuntryFirst

    Why do I feel like I need to take a shower now?

  • Origami

    I never, ever want to see Larry King’s “sexy” face again.

    Pegs looks cute though! And she knows it.

  • gom

    prolly cuz you just jizzed in your pants

  • naveed


  • hockeymom

    I am not a fan of this facial hair trend.

  • Deepthroat

    the prop 8 musical is better. this is kinda cringe-worthy. So self-conscious.

  • twowheeljunkie

    Was that Obama girl?

  • slithytoves

    I’m way too lazy to watch this. What’s it say?

  • El Pinche

    WIN for Common and zoom shot of Dean on the one-brass hit.

  • CuntryFirst

    [re=225959]Deepthroat[/re]: Exactly. It’s certainly more “die” than “funny.”

  • johnbpt

    Mmmmm…Sarah Silverman.

  • AnnieGetYourFun

    I don’t recognize any of those people when they are out of their element – i.e. my television. Except Joe. I would know that Easter Island-sized head anywhere.


    There are videos of kids stacking dice — that is piling dice on top of one another — that can be found on YouTube and are more interesting than this video.

    I also recommend my college film-making project:

    Must be a slow day at Wonkette headquarters.

  • mattbolt

    This really needs a pop-up video version, because cable TV’s constant explanations of who people are and why they are important superimposed over their faces has withered my brain to the point where I can no longer identify basic people based solely on their appearance

    Also, “the people behind FunnyorDie” would most prominently be a Mister Will Fucking Ferrell, but it’s really just a video-posting site that’s a breeding ground for all kinds of comedy groups, these are just a couple of independent guys I’d never heard of with insane amounts of access

  • assistant/atlas

    I always forget that Washington celebrities are so boring and ugly compared to the Hollywood ones.

    Also, I cannot fathom how someone can get that close to Tucker Carlson and not donkeypunch him.

  • Toomush Infermashun

    Hmm, think it might have been better if they’d bitch-slapped Peggy, but….

  • Heywood Floyd

    And Ron Paul get shut out again. Despicable.

  • cracksammich

    Will Ferrell’s production company, Gary Sanchez Productions, runs the site.

  • TaxWallStreet


    Who says they didn’t?

  • mattbolt

  • loudmouthredhead

    Who did they have to blow to get to Howard Dean? What was Wes Clark burning? Why, for the love of all that’s holy, was Jack Black nekkid?!
    At first I was yawning at a 70s-themed montage, but bravo fellas. I’m kinda jealous.

  • WadISay

    [re=225953]Origami[/re]: I have thought exactly the same about the Pegstress’es appearances in the last few days. Does she have a little Hope in her, or is she getting laid?

  • bitchincamaro

    “Funny Or Die” in regards to Larry King? The choice is obvious.

  • El Pinche

    Where’s Dan Quayle and/or Perry Ferrell? What kind of bullshit is this?

  • sailingthestyx

    [re=225961]twowheeljunkie[/re]: heidi fleiss…l. a. madame…kicked tom sizemore’s ass

  • The Neoskeptic


  • Deepthroat

    as far as shamless cameos go, i much prefer the Bree Sharp classic, “David Duchovny, why won’t you love me.” But maybe that’s just because i’m a huge X-Files dork?

  • american mutt

    [re=225961]twowheeljunkie[/re]: you know, a few months ago i realized i worked for a creep who hired obama girl to do some modeling, like back in 2003. ugh.

  • american mutt

    Soledad O’Brien = hottie boom boddie

  • loudmouthredhead

    Is it weird that I recognized more of the politicians than the tv/music celebrities? Am I officially a political nerd now?

  • blader

    I vote die
    because Newt!is the erectile dysfunction of intergoogle humor..a bad case of cancer seems a lot more funny

  • OReillysVibrator

    Ehh, no comedy behind it, just the viral equivalent of name-dropping in the guise of high-fives.

  • BadDog!

    I am surprised Wonkettes don’t know Funny or Die – check out Pearl the Landlord video on that site.
    I bow to the Wonkette.

  • lmj

    As for shameless name and face dropping, I only recognized about a quarter of those people. I am so plugged in!

  • TGY

    Well, *I* thought it was funny. Hm.

  • dav

    it was very funny.
