Big Comedy Update

Although not technically a comedy video, this cameo filled video for The New Pornographers‘ “Moves” made my day today. The video for “Moves” was written and directed by Tom Scharpling and stars a who’s who of comedy and music including: Jon Wurster, Julie Klausner, Kevin Corrigan, Wyatt Cenac, John Oliver, Horatio Sanz, Ted Leo, John Hodgman, Bill Hader, Paul Rudd, Todd Barry, Donald Glover, Esther Crow, Michael Lisk, Gabe Delahaye, Max Silvestri, just to name a few.

It’s been a while since I’ve done a weekly comedy update, but I felt inspired today, so here you go:
