Laugh of the Day 10/16/11 Will Ferrell including "The Landlord"
Today we spotlight a comedian that everyone knows. Born in 1967, Will Ferrell got his start on Saturday Night live in 1995, and with his seven years on the show. Will Ferrell showed early signs of a superstar. Since his departure in 2002, Ferrell has since been in numerous movies, created his own streaming video website "Funny or Die", and produced one of the best new comedies in "Eastbound and Down". 99% of the population knows Will Ferrell from one of his movies, and maybe even his SNL days. One thing is for sure though, he is one of the best comedians of our time. Now to enjoy some of the comedy he has brought us over the years.
My first pick today is Will Ferrell impersonation of Harry Caray. Ferrell is great at impersonations, and on Saturday Night Live he showcased it, especially this hilarious sketch.
The next one is a viral phenomenon. The Landlord was the very first streaming video for Ferrell's website "Funny or Die". It includes Will and his landlord, the 2 year old who loves to drink. This is a very very funny clip, and it even won a Guys Choice Award in 2007 for the "Most Viral Video".
George W. Bush Impersonation
Well as I said before, Ferrell likes to do impersonations. One that he did a lot on SNL was George W. Bush. He was so big they gave him his own special on HBO as Bush. This is a clip from that epic performance.
The Other Guys
The Other Guys was a movie released in 2010 starring Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg. This is just one of Ferrell's funniest movies, but it is one of the most recent releases. This is a compilation of some of the funniest moments in the movie.
That's all for today! Hopefully you got a good laugh. After spotlighting Will Ferrell it has inspired me to make tomorrow Saturday Night Live Celebrity Jeopardy Day. I loved every single skit they did on Celebrity Jeopardy so tomorrow, expect to see some Alex Trebek and some Sean Connery. Thanks again for watching.
