Hello. I am thrilled to give you my list of funniest things on the internet. Obviously, this is a difficult ask as there are so many things to watch on the internet that it is literally destroying society itself, corroding our democracy and ruining our children.
With this in mind, I’ve tried to put together a list of accounts, clips, and people that you may not know about. I’m trying to highlight some more obscure and original content. I hope this brings you joy.
1. Jack Bensinger
Jack Bensinger has one of the most original sketch comedy accounts on the internet. Completely off the wall and brilliant.
2. Saint Hoax
This account is a welcome, accidental discovery I made recently. It isn’t always super funny, but it is a wonderful blend of social commentary and memes. Truly the highest form of meme art on the internet.
3. Dan Rath
Dan Rath is the best stand up in Australia at the moment. Obviously, that is not to disregard the many legends that exist, but I just think Rathy will be a legend of Australian comedy in the future. It’s the character, writing and his relationship with the audience.
4. Greg Larsen on cream
Greg Larsen is an old friend of mine and we’ve worked together in comedy for about 10 years. He truly doesn’t like to be told what to do in comedy and follows what he believes is funny at all costs. This sketch about cream basically sums up what to expect.
5. Aaron Gocs
Aaron Gocs is a truly unique voice in Australian comedy, adored by comedians and fans alike. I think the best way to consume Gocsy is to follow him and take in his presence all across the internet. He’s the king of the comments section and his take on every day life is unique.
6. Becky Lucas
I love Becky Lucas’s jokes. They’re not off the wall or absurd, just really great jokes that are well delivered. I always make sure I watch Becky live. Maybe I’m biased because we started together in Brisbane, but I love that she now has a big following.
7. Conner O’Malley’s Endorphin Port
Check out Conner O’Malley in general, but particularly this. It pretty much gives you a taste of what he’s about. This guy is a true original.
8. Ol’ Dirty Bastard interview on MTV
This was an interview ODB did where they could not get a single line that was usable. It’s hilarious. He doesn’t say anything that makes sense and they have to retake it over and over. It’s always been one of my favourite things.
9. Cringe TikTok
I’ve become obsessed with “cringe TikTok”. This Instagram account documents what is, in my opinion, the greatest art of a generation. I probably spend my time on this account more than any other. It’s filled with just embarrassing narcissistic performances. Truly wonderful and a sign of the end of a civilisation.
10. This cover of Groove Armada
I stumbled across this through one of the aforementioned cringe accounts. This particular rendition of My Friend by Groove Armada is horribly incredible.
