10 Comedy Web Series You Need to Watch
SNL star Bobby Moynihan stops by Comedy Bang! Bang! tonight to play the endearingly stabby Little Orphan Fourvel. Since there’s no such thing as too much Bobby, not only will we tune in at 10/9c, but we’re going to spend the day watching Moynihan’s web series The Sidecar. If you’re looking for more laughter before tonight’s episode, here’s a list of must-watch comedy web series.
1. The Sidecar
Bobby Moynihan stars in The Sidecar, a new web series about a bar where a bunch of superhero sidekicks hang out. We’re particularly fond of this special episode commissioned for YouTube’s “Geek Week,” starring Moynihan and our pal Chris Gethard.
In a recent episode of Paul F. Tompkins’s web series Speakeasy, he sits down with SNL’s Bill Hader, who just happens to be a guest on tonight’s episode of Comedy Bang! Bang! They chat about Hader’s entire career in comedy, including his childhood interest in Monty Python and his anxiety-ridden days at SNL.
3. Burning Love
This hilarious parody of The Bachelor stars a who’s who of comedy including Ken Marino, Michael Ian Black, Adam Scott, Paul Rudd, Kumail Nanjiani, Nick Kroll and a host of other indie comedy legends all vying for love in all the wrong places.
4. 7 Minutes in Heaven
SNL writer and soon-to-be featured player Mike O’Brien invites celebrities like Portlandia’s Fred Armisen, Insane Clown Posse and Ellen Degeneres to recreate one of the most awkward moments of junior high school. Sure he likes to talk instead of make-out, but it’s still entertaining to watch.
