As another week ends, it’s important to blow off some steam with some hilarious videos. An entertainment appetizer, if you will, that’ll make the transition from work to play a little easier.

From a campy take on Marvel anti-hero the Punisher to a hilarious memory of the late, great Prince from a classic Chappelle Show episode, here are five funny things from this week you need to watch.

1. Punisher ’66

The absurdly campy exploits of the Caped Crusader didn’t begin with Joel Schumacher — and they certainly weren’t as painful. The delightfully silly 1966 Batman TV series stood in stark contrast to the dark and brooding character we know Mr. Wayne as now. The sketch group Mrs. Woman imagined what the peppy music and hypercolor “Biffs!” and “Splats!” would look if applied to everyone’s favorite murderous vigilante. Check it out above, and click here to see all airings of The Punisher on IFC.

2. Dating Fashion from Boxed In

This week Boxed In, comedian Amy York Rubin‘s darkly funny take on dating as a “gay-ish” woman in Los Angeles, premiered on IFC’s Comedy Crib. A mixture of Broad City, Girls, and Transparent, it’s a richly funny series with Rubin as a standout comedic performer. Check out the episode above, featuring Alison Rich from the FOX late night show Party Over Here, where Amy can’t seem to find the right balance between a butch or femme look for others’ tastes.

3. The Foot Fist Way

Before Danny McBride walloped us with his unhinged Kenny Powers on HBO’s fantastic Eastbound & Down, the comedy star hit the ground running in another production with Eastbound co-creator Jody Hill: 2006’s criminally underseen The Foot Fist Way. McBride stars as a Powers-esque karate instructor and employs a familiar dunderheaded confidence that made the HBO series so hilarious. And as a gift to us all, Paramount has posted the entire movie to YouTube.

4. Muppets Sing A Tribe Called Quest

In a break from Mylo The Cat’s consistently solid Muppet mashups, YouTuber spunnywigg stepped up and delivered a fantastic mix of A Tribe Called Quest’s thumping “Scenario” with Sesame Street characters. The voices of Tip, Phife (RIP), and Leaders of the New School are attached to various Muppets throughout the song, but it’s the little details (like “How now, brown cow?” matched with a cow puppet) that make this video shine.

5. Chappelle Show’s Prince Segment

By now, you’ve probably pored through the complete Prince catalog at least a few times, so take a moment to dab your dewy eyes and enjoy one of the funniest, happiest, and strangely uplifting segments ever to appear on the hilarious Chappelle’s Show.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
