stupid silliness makes me laugh

I’ve had some more serious blogs recenlty and a couple of them quite long.  To be different, this blog won’t be serious or long.  I do plenty of non-serious things even if they don’t make it into my blogging.  I watched two shows this past week that made me laugh more than I had in a while.

I watched Colbert’s Christmas Special.  He has such a silly sense of humor.  His mock seriousness is just pitch perfect.  He had a lot of good stars on that show.  I saw this show when it played on cable.  His shows usually can be seen for free on his website, but this show apparently is only available in clips.  If you have the Comedy Channel, it will probably be played on cable for the next month.  If you’re an easily offended Christian, I wouldn’t recommend it.

I was just looking up about Colbert and came across this Wikiality.  It doesn’t seem to have any official relationship to the Colbert Report, but is obviously inspired by it.  Colbert had some episodes where he played around with the Wikipedia entry about him while live on his show.  Colbert also had a real funny take on truthiness when he roasted Bush some years ago.

Well, the other stupid funny thing I watched recently was Jackass 2.5.  I didn’t watch the whole movie because I only caught a small bit on tv.  I’ve never even watched the show before.  It was mostly what I expected.  It was stupid and very crude in parts, but its amusing for the immature little boy in all of us.  There was one stunt where they had one overweight guy get dressed up as King Kong and another guy as a woman in a blonde wig.  These two guys got up on a porta-potty and the rest of the guys flew model planes at the King Kong guy while he swatted at them.  It was plain silly and it made me laugh.

Colbert is definitely a comic genius, I agree.

Yeah, Colbert is one of my favorite entertainers.  He has a fair amount of range in his acting abilities, but I don’t like as much in his more serious roles.

Interesting.  I’ve never actually seen him in a serious role.  He’s certainly skilled when it comes to improv.

Offhand, I can only think of one entirely serious role I’ve seen him in.  It was in the movie Dan in the Real.  I don’t know if he has done any other serious roles.  He played that role well enough, but it just doesn’t compare to how great he is as a comedian.

Hmm.  I saw that movie.  I didn’t know Colbert was in it though…

You’re right.  I was mixing Carell with Colbert.  I guess that maybe Colbert hasn’t done anything serious.  I just checked the IMDb entry for him.  The only serious one that stood out to me is that he did one episode of Law and Order, but I don’t know how serious of a role he played.
