Too Much Funny

5 Hilarious “Oh, Hello” Videos

Catch John Mulaney on the Oddball Comedy Festival.

Few comics joke to the beat of their own drummer as much as Nick Kroll and John Mulaney. Eschewing the traditional route of sitcom stardom, the longtime friends and comedy partners have built their reputations on underground appeal and a menagerie of bizarre characters, none more popular than Gil Faizon (Kroll) and George St. Geegland (Mulaney), the Alan Alda-loving, turtleneck-wearing, erotic massage-enjoying stars of “The Oh, Hello Show.”

Kroll and Mulaney began performing the characters in the early ’00s, on the alt comedy stage of New York City. Honed over a decade, the duo soon found their way onto online videos, late night couches and talks at 92Y, the Upper East Side venue where you might see a few George and Gil lookalikes. Wherever they went, they brought their coy racism and love of tuna. With the two classy gents stopping by the Comedy Bang! Bang! premiere (which you can watch right now on IFC.com and the IFC app), we thought we’d revisit some of their finest moments. Just don’t tell Gil’s ex wife, or she’ll want a cut for her alimony checks.

5. The YouTubes

Even in their early videos, Gil and George feel fully formed. Here they creep out Gil’s ex-wife, whose name he took without permission. (You’ll have to watch to find out his real last name.)


4. The Yoga Session

In another video from their Web series days, Gil and George enjoy a drug and booze-fueled yoga session with Mona Mimosa, played by podcaster and Difficult People star Julie Klausner.


3. The Bachelors Live

Perhaps their most bizarre (and controversial) guest spot came on The Bachelor after show, where their caustic mentions of eczema cream and “ka-caine” led to a reality show loving revolt on Twitter.


2. The Krolles Show

A cult hit, Kroll Show allowed star Nick Kroll to run wild with his plethora of characters. Everyone from Bobby Bottleservice to Fabrice Fabrice was given their chance to shine, but few were more popular than tuna pranking partners George St. Geegland and Gil Faizon.


1. The Off-Brud-way show

With Kroll Show wrapping up, the boys took their “Oh, Hello” crew on the road. After a sold out, critically-acclaimed Off-Broadway run, Gil and George hit the road for a national tour. Could Brud-way be next?

Watch a clip from the “Oh, Hello” boys’ appearance on Comedy Bang! Bang!. You can also catch John Mulaney on the 2016 Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival.

Final Countdown

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

Rev Up

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.
