  • one time I was laughing with a co-worker about some thing or other when suddenly he pauses and, after careful consideration, says to me: "comedy is putting something where it doesn't belong" i didn't understand why it made so much sense to me, and neither of us could phrase it differently, so it was just this thing that we both understood half-tacitly, i guess. this video phrased that quite eloquently :o

  • Thats why Moistcr1tical is literally Jesus

  • "whats the most complex thing you do in your kitchen" Explaining to my mom why i brought a cucumber from my room

  • I try to avoid death jokes, they kill the mood I also don’t like potty jokes, they stink

  • Rachael

  • "Whats the most complex thing you do in the kitchen" Boomers: I dont, my wife does it for me

  • Actually the pecke juice joke still isn't funny... I guess the amount of laugh one can generate from a certain joke depends on audience

  • Balagadoo--that's it

  • I was making a delicious peanut butter sandwich. And the knife i was using was super sharp and it made it easy to cut things. It was my favorite knife cuz it was so sharp and easy to use. Thats why I use it to rob people.

  • Wish I could send this to everybody who says derogatory and demeaning stuff only to pass it off as a joke

  • Now I know how to joke, cool

  • my favorite kind of jokes are short answers that practically punch you in the gut

  • 3:51 Bob Dylan: Am I a joke to you?

  • Step 1 - tell a joke Step 2 - release the laughing gas

  • you're a whole genius

  • Holy shit that club thumb one had me dead.

  • "What's the most complex thing you do in your kitchen?" Crystal meth

  • Laugh tracks are so stupid. I couldn’t even hear the guys response to the kitchen thing because it was being drowned out

  • Thanks for introducing me to burnham, more people will definitely laugh at him.

  • "Comedy is like cancer" I accually laughed :D

  • Bo Burnham

  • Eric andre, Genius

  • How come you like all of the same comedians I do.

  • he made a video about comedy and the joke at the end had literally the worst delivery ive heard from him. no hate, but it's kinda ironic

  • everybody: delivers their jokes like: this now and it's: so fucking annoying and they think adding more space between the setup and the punchline makes it more funny. then they're encouraged when some guy replies "underrated comment." it's so infuriating, like holy shit.

  • this video made me laugh

  • *Laughs in deep-fried Zoomer Humor*

  • Bit behind the times, but what is the Pepsi reference?

  • Yes

  • Everyone is a comedian here untill they got zero likes like me Sad realization

  • No body: Comedy today: I like ya cut g, are ya winning son, Da vinki?!

  • If you want people to laugh give them a laugh track

  • When he starts laughing a bit at the end, I was legit *shook*. I was like... wait....the guy with most bored voice in existence can laugh?!!

  • The B O R E D joke is the comedian equivalent of a banana being taped to a wall for artist's

  • His subtle sarcasm makes it even funnier bc it feels like I’m not supposed to laugh at it

  • Not enough credit went to the narrators ‘misplaced nut’ gag after C.K.’s bit.

  • What's the most complex thing you do in your kitchen? Sit on the floor and and cry about the the fact that I can't even properly microwave a cup noodles and I'm too ashamed to call my mom and ask her about it.

  • 1. Comedic Timing 2. Be Funny 3. If you're not funny don't.

  • “Misplaced nut”

  • the pickle juice isnt funny even for the original comedy's delivery, not causually explain guys fault

  • the only thing I find funny anymore is Cum Town riffs.

  • Hahaha, I thought I was imagining it. The small clips your adding throughout the video actually pretty good. Calculus in seconds 😂

  • "Of all people you'd think you know the damage you can inflict for a misplaced nut." - Casually Explained, 6:35

  • My best advice: Just fling shit at the wall when it comes to jokes. See what people think: haha funny ape man or jesus christ Jake the third time this month

  • 1:11- looks like the guy hasn't slept for 4 days.....or is just really high.

  • Little did we know the entire video was a setup

  • What am I supposed to like brainstorm a joke and revise that mid conversation? Do I need to bring pen and paper?

  • Misplaced nut. Gold.

  • What's the most complex thing you do in your kitchen? My wife

  • Thankyou for this great wisdom

  • “What's the most complex thing you do in your kitchen?” Maybe trying to calculate how much my microwave doesn't want to properly heat up a bowl of soup.

  • Is this video a joke?

  • OK i think i've got this What's the best way to crack open a coconut? With my wife's head, because i hate her... You may not have laughed but show it to your nearest boomer...

  • Some aspects of this video did not age well

  • do you like fish sticks :D

  • 10:05 That's easily explained - sadness is relatable.

  • I’m a simple man, I saw bo burnham, I clicked.

  • I did a funny by looking left or right and saying "nature"

  • i didn't get how computer mice worked, and then it clicked.

  • Not happy at all, I didn't laugh. Your joke is bad, I will love it if it is removed from my head and would you please give up telling me it again. Honestly, this was a terrible effort trying to bring a smile away from me. No laughing, not hehe, not even a subtle outburst from my esophagus. Science says before you laugh your brain prepares the facial muscles, but I don't even feel the slightest movement. 0/10 jokes are so bad, I can't believe someone is legal enough to give you creative rights. The amount of brain power you put into that joke could power every home on Earth. Get a personality and learn to make a joke, read a book. I'm not saying this to be funny, I really mean that about how this is just comedy in comedy. You have killed the humor and every act of comedy on the planet. I'm so frustrated that society has failed to teach you how to be humorous. Honestly if I put all the strength and time to try and make your joke funny, it would require Einstein to build a device so I could connect to energies of a billion. the star to do that, and the only thing that joke got from everyone was a subtle contempt. You are lucky that I still have some sympathy for you after telling that joke otherwise I will take all the war crimes recorded in history just to prevent you from trying to bring any humor. funny anymore. We should put that joke in the textbook so that future generations can be wary of becoming an absolute failure in comedy. I was frustrated, hurt and outraged that my precious time was wasted just for my brain to understand the joke. During that time I was planning on helping orphans, but because of that you did I had to explain with the least amount of obscenity about your terrible attempt at comedy. Now the kids are suffering when there is no meal and there is no one to blame but you. I hope you are happy with what you have done and I really hope you can move on and learn from this pitiful effort.

    • Or instead of writing a school essay you can say... that was a bad joke

  • comedy's kinda like improvising in music (build on small ideas)

  • I didnt find any of the clips he showed funny but hes funny af himself... bizarre

  • To the random stranger reading this May your family and friends be blessed with the upmost benevolence of Our Creator and may all the difficulties in your life, no matter how minor or major it is, disappear forever❣️.

  • yes! i love how bo burnham is in the thumbnail

  • What the fuck. This is actually educational. 😧😇

  • during the whole video I was like: WRITE THAT DOWN WRITE THAT DOWN!!!

  • 6:35

  • 10:56 amy schumer

  • So guys here me out here, titties.

  • 6:22 I have nut allergies and that still made me laugh

  • This video is gold

  • You can’t really tell when someone’s being funny especially when their Canadian

  • I am either a genius comedian or a bitter asshole because none of the examples shown in this video made me laugh.

  • Comedy is like cancer. That explains half of this platform perfectly. (See, it’s working!)

  • Sarah Silverman needs to learn that funny over offensive rule. Lmao. All of her jokes are just anti-semitic, racist, or insulting but they're done in a 'little girl's' voice to make them funny. Essentially, she sucks.

  • Ok let me know how I did. Fart

  • "Recommended for you"

  • "how to make something funny" dont be me

  • was this video just a very long and drawn out cancer joke? nice.

  • Thx, ill use this since I'm a girl 😔

  • lost it at "of all the people, youd know the damage you could inflict with a misplaced nut." X)

  • Can we change the channel name to Casually Mansplain? That would be tight!!!

  • It was the last joke for me

  • why was his laugh at the end so heartwarming for me?? bc he broke out of the monotone voice he uses in his videos? i need an explanation

  • Hey idk you too much. But thanks a lot for this. And you got brains

  • "What is the most complex thing you do in your kitchen?" Sacrificing people to the dark lords. Also: the mailman.

  • "Of all people you would know what kind of damage you can do from a misplaced nut!" And I oop!!!
