Gr8at – Brilliant Videos

As I’ve shown throughout my blog and most recently with this post on Comedy Greatness, I’ve always liked things that can make me laugh. As you are all such awesome followers and readers of the blog, here is another eight memorable videos that highlight some of my main interests and are always worth seeing. Any of them most catch your eye?


The show was one of my favourites growing up. This wonderfully daft sketch sums up just how irreverntly funny they could be. And yes, you will recognise the voice as the man who did Mr Bean ha.

 


I’ve always been a huge fan of Seinfeld (see here, here, here and here) so a stand up of the man himself telling us what he had been up to after the seminal show just had to be seen. A classic stand up performance.

 

This rather astonishingly edited video really does sum up the evolution of films from its early beginnings to its more spectacular current day brilliance. There is the odd film spoiler ahead so do be careful.

 


At the cinema you always know who has seen this clip if they start laughing when the regular logo music comes out. Short and so brilliantly funny.

 


A little while to get going, but this is a brilliant video often remade as it just offers so much comedic freedom. You can just sit back and enjoy masters at work.

 


Most adverts are pretty dull, but Nike ads tend to be among the better ones. They really struck gold with this one. Can you imagine if things like this went on in the tunnel…?

 


Not a funny one like most on here, but brilliantly original. I saw it while in a museum in Frankfurt and it’s still one of the most creative things I’ve ever seen. If you can think of a better short film, please do let me know.

And last but not least, a link to one of the cutest videos. Do check it out. Just adorable.

Gr8at – Comedy Greatness

As everyone reading this will know, I’m a huge fan of comedy. I’ve managed to see all kinds of great shows, and grew up with all kinds of comedic influences. I wanted to share with you all a Gr8 of memorable scenes and sketches that still have me in hysterics. Do you have a favourite? See any of the endings coming? As always, feel free to share your thoughts below.


Just when you think you think you know the five stages of grief, a giraffe comes along to show you the way. Probably not a good idea to have on speaker if you’re at work.

 


In case you ever thought knowing all kinds of random one liners and catchphrases was ever a bad idea.

 

You won’t see this ending coming. One way to make an introduction for sure.

 

Still my favourite trailer. Astonishingly original.

 

We’ve all met someone who is great at finding loopholes.

 

A huge fan of Friends. This is still one of my favourite storylines.

 

Incredibly clever idea for a premise, superbly executed. The writer of the sketch also wrote this scene.

 


One of the all time great moments in British comedy.
