Simon Taylor: The 10 Funniest Things I’ve Ever Seen (On The Internet) | comedy | Panda Anku

AAsking someone to list the funniest things they’ve ever seen on the internet should be an official psychological assessment tool. I imagine a therapist could determine that their client is highly sociopathic just because they know not to burst out laughing watching videos of squirrels riding tiny jet skis. I mean come on

Below is a rather intimate insight into my psyche in the form of viral videos. Let’s sit in the therapist’s chair, shall we?

1. I smell like beef

What were your first words? I think what bothers me about this video is the repetition. It’s as if this toddler is trying to communicate a whole range of emotions and human experiences with the one phrase she knows. Bellissimo.

2. This animal documentary story

Away from narrators who sound like they’re reading a textbook. This clip shows the kind of enthusiasm I want in a nature documentary. The woman here is rightly excited about the birds’ mating ritual and I’m dying for her to have her own series on the Discovery Channel.

3. Game changer

This is my favorite game show of all time. The game changes with each episode, but in this one players have to improvise a scene given to them at the moment. All I’m saying is that these actors’ comedic timing is impeccable.

4. Off to school

Get that kid a comedy special. It has more character than a Disney film. I wish I had been so excited to go to school as a kid. She also has quite a repertoire of dance moves.

5. This TikTok duet

I’m not a cringe comedy type, and I’m not really into teasing people. However, the comedic ingenuity of this video is so impressive that you can’t help but cackle. As you watch, remember that each new video is a completely independent person adding their own idea to the gag. I am impressed by this global collaboration.

6. Nathan Fielder: the best burger in Los Angeles

Nathan Fielder’s new show, The Rehearsal, is on the rise, but his first show, Nathan For You, aired on Comedy Central a few years ago. Fielder is brilliant at remaining expressionless during the ridiculous scenarios he creates. This is only part of an episode, but damn it’s hilariously awkward.

7. A father impersonates his daughter

I don’t use Tiktok. I’m happy to wait three months to see which videos are funny enough to make my Instagram feed. I’m glad this one did. The dad’s performance in this video is Oscar worthy in my opinion and the daughter is a great sport to post.

8. Trying to be quiet at 2am

When I come home from concerts, my wife is already asleep. This video shows exactly why I gave up snacking or even getting a glass of water before bed. Ridiculous yet relatable.

9. Player cat

I love a friendly game of poker, but damn I’d lose to that cat.

10. Am I pregnant?

For someone who has published books, I’m a bad speller. Without autocorrect and a team of underpaid editors, this article wouldn’t be about the “Internet,” but arguably about “interest.” Hearing how so many people have tried to spell the word pregnant is cathartic and incredibly funny.

Simon Taylor is touring Australia with his show Epic from September 2nd to 30th.
