Floyd Alexander-Hunt: the 10 funniest things I have ever seen (on the internet) | comedy

I have an all or nothing relationship with the internet. I am either giving it my undivided attention with 227 tabs open, or I am asleep. Lake? Everything or nothing. I try to set boundaries with my internet usage but I’m also unable to follow through on things. Every night I delete the Instagram app off my phone and then every night I go on it via Safari. I’m like a drug addict who throws away their pills only to go and smoke crack in an alley 30 minutes later.

The internet can be a place of joy but it can also be a place where embarrassing memories pop up on your Facebook. What is that feature called again? Ah yes, parents. When compiling this list I considered including screenshots of my divorced parents commenting on the same post but not being able to see each other’s comments because they’ve blocked one another. But here are some other things I find funny.

1. Jenny by Flight of the Conchords

These two are masters of the craft and have Kiwi accents. What’s not to love? Also this song is about pretending to know someone who claims they know you – something I do all the time. Not because I’m famous but because people say I have a really familiar (exceedingly generic) face.

Only introverts will find this funny but I don’t care because extroverts should be out socialising, not reading this article! Losers!

3. This dad dancing with his daughter

This father-daughter duo, Michael and Ali Hoffman, are behind one of my favorite videos. It reminds me of my dad and my teenage sister, who are two of the funniest people I know and annoyingly good dancers. They always commit to a bit with the intensity of this dad at 2 minutes 45 seconds in.

I have a Bachelor of Arts in music composition, and can attest I’ve never seen anyone play percussion as passionately as this man with his mallet. The BA mention may seem unnecessary (not as unnecessary as majoring in music composition), but it does qualify me to say that this video is doubly funny because he hits the cellist in the face ON THE BEAT.

Kids getting words wrong is never not funny. My brother used to call elephants “onks” until he clarified: “They’re not called onks, they’re called alphelants!” I sometimes think that if I’d corrected him earlier he’d have turned out smarter (or never joined CrossFit), but we can’t change the past, we can.

Saying you don’t like Beyoncé is like saying you don’t like dessert: you’re only lying to yourself. This Saturday Night Live sketch reminds me of the time my friend was interviewed by a major pop radio station and said she didn’t like music. They treated her like Andrew Garfield in this sketch and you know what? fair enough

This song from Crazy Ex-Girlfriend perfectly encapsulates how I feel about getting ready. It’s painful and unfair that men get to arrive as they are. I’ve deliberately stopped putting effort in so that people are speechless when I turn up with dry hair, or tied shoelaces. I’m not about being a hot female comedian … I’m all about being a rich female comedian. (Buy tickets to my show.)

This Tiktok is the energy we all need going forward. It doesn’t matter if you mess up, as long as you sell the ending… and are a child.

Did I forget to mention I was a child star? Kidding, but I was the face of Tip Top bread in New Zealand. This is funny because I am now gluten intolerant.

As a chronic people pleaser, I wish I had an anger translator with me at all times. Keegan-Michael Key is so funny in this sketch and the fact that Obama doesn’t break is a miracle.
