Product Description

Funny or Die Presents: The Complete First Season (DVD)

Executive produced by three of the celebrated masterminds behind the groundbreaking Funny or Die website – Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Chris Henchy – this half-hour sketch-comedy series provides a creative forum for dozens of America's most talented comedians, actors and writers all contributing segments to the so-called "Funny or Die Network," in an anything-goes comedy environment.

Will Farrell brings his Internet sensation to television with Funny or Die Presents. This anthology of short comic sketches--some of which have appeared online--is hosted by the white-haired, avuncular Ed Haligan (Steve Tom), who's the epitome of a 1960s senior ad executive. Surrounded by a bevy of sexy secretaries, Haligan makes serious-sounding (but usually snide) pronouncements about the nature of television and computers or veers into existential angst. The sketches themselves are both wildly varied (from the sweet whimsy of "Space Baby" to the frat-boy "wildness" of "Designated Driver" to the off-kilter anti-comedy of "The Amazing Adventures of David & Jennie"), but also similar in their complete disconnect from the world at large. A free-floating self-referential "outrageousness" dominates, all urge with neither intention nor content, a sort of comic dry heave. Sometimes the results are entertaining: "Playground Politics" reduces geopolitics to a smattering of childhood catcalls and feels wittily appropriate, while Derek Water's "Drunk History" enacts historical events as narrated by actual historians who've been plied with way, way too much alcohol--the combination of boozy confusion and deadpan reenactment is delightfully absurd. The only comedy that represents anything like a female perspective is "Casual Sex," in which a very pregnant Andrea Savage tries to get laid by a stranger before her life becomes consumed by child-rearing. "Casual Sex," though brief, is about human interaction--something that most of these shorts have tossed aside. Fans of Human Giant and Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! will find plenty of material to enjoy. --Bret Fetzer

Total garbage. The idea of comedy is to be creatively funny. This completely misses the mark.

I'm the kind of person who likes to judge things for myself and not just take other people's word for it... this time I was wrong. I should have listened. Since I didn't, I just have to co-sign. This show is lame.

I loved the show when it was on HBO and find this compilation excellent. Like a Saturday Night Live show, there are some great sketches, some good ones and some that are not my taste. The vast majority are laugh out loud funny. The retro style and host add a near perfect tone. Steve Tom, who plays the Ed Halligan host character, nails the over-the-hill, politically incorrect, bitter old salesman character providing great satire and insight. The combination of A-list stars with young, emerging talent works throughout. I highly recommend this video.

Watching this took time from my life that I will never be able to reclaim. I guess this could be entertaining to some, but I could have vacuumed pool algae and found more humor.

It was a low moment in my mildly interesting life. It was watch this or eat a stick of butter. Should have gone with the butter.

This was some of the worse garbage I ever stumbled over. It is essentially a collection of mindless crap bundled together to appeal to the lowest common denominator. This is another step on the road to the idocracy generation.

I was giving this a try. The first few skits weren't funny to me. Then it got violent. Rape jokes? No thank you.

The only funny part was the Drunken History segment, all else was bloody gross or otherwise nasty to me.
