Karen From Finance: The 10 Funniest Things I’ve Ever Seen (on the Internet) | Comedy

OWithout the Internet, I wouldn’t be where I am today. In my early days, like many drag queens, I made a name for myself mixing iconic songs with the silliest soundbites I could find to create the most ridiculous moments on stage that only a drunken audience could find. fun. The dark corners of the web have captivated and inspired me to make some of my favorite works, while keeping me from working for hours, days, or even weeks at a time due to its distracting powers. I honor it, I despise it, and I spend too much time on it.

1. TV presenter news fails

There are thousands of these compilations online, and I’ve seen them all many times, even the bad ones. There is something about the anticipated balance of an anchor shattered by a momentary lapse of speech or judgment that absolutely sends me away.

2. Teresa Mannion’s Weather Report Remix

Teresa Mannion is a drag staple. The original weather report is fantastic. The musical remix is ​​fantastic. The addition of the CGI stop sign knocking it out is ridiculous. I like everything.

3. A girl tries to sing I will always love you

Like most drag queens, I played this video to death, and somehow I just can’t stop. What I thought was a revolutionary idea about seven years ago is still laughable today. There’s something about this girl that resonates with all of us. I hear she grew up to be a great person. Well done sister.

4. Mad Lady at the Curtain

This video takes us on a trip down memory lane. I’m sure it’s not real, but I love the fake nostalgia of believing that’s exactly what the world was like before. Maybe it was…?

5. The Rainbow Sponge

I grew up watching arts and crafts on TV. I loved them all, which is why this lady still resonates so strongly with me. She says something iconic at the start that truly represents our relationship with the internet now: “You can speed me up, slow me down, or turn me off.” I need to use this logic more often.

6. Saturday Night Live: Sketch of Close Encounter

This is a classic SNL sketch. I don’t know which is better, Ryan Gosling constantly corpsing or Kate McKinnon (mostly) managing to hold on. Genius!

7. Unhhh with Trixie & Katya: Procrastination

All of the Unhhh videos are great on their own, but there’s no better episode to procrastinate on the internet than their procrastination video. It’s embarrassing how many (mostly hungover) hours I spent rewatching these two.

8. Models fall on the catwalk

It’s another classic. I’m incredibly sorry for all the models in these videos, and as myself who falls and frequently wears stilettos, I sympathize. Laughter is the best medicine and I laugh!

9. Catherine Tate: Scared Woman

The queen of comedy killed off this character. The anticipation of what’s to come versus the absolute thrill when it finally does, is pure genius. I can watch this character on repeat, and I do often!

10. Chat filter on a Zoom call

This one is a nod to our tedious days spent in lockdown during the pandemic. We’ve all become Zoom experts, but never forget the days before – when settings like chat filters were much easier to turn on than turn off.
