In addition to looking forward to the Ricky Gervais Show, I am also really looking forward to the Funny or Die show, Funny or Die Presents. Based on the trailer above, they will have an episode of Drunk History, I know that Rob Huebel and Paul Scheer made some kind of bank robbery episode, there’s something with Zach Galifianakis, who at this point is all the description you need, I suppose, and the thing that I am most looking forward to is an episode featuring a live performance of Brett Gelman‘s one man show, 1000 Cats. PAH!

I recognize that I have written two full posts gushingly promoting HBO shows this week. SO SUE ME! Is it my fault that a television network actually pulled its head out of its butt for once? Not that I would say no if HBO offered to scratch my back (with cash) in return. It literally would take a $50 gift certificate to Sephora to buy my integrity. (Via @jwoliner.)

  1. Oh god did I see Drunk History in there? Oh god this is going the The Best.

  2. meh, from the trailer I’d say it looks pretty die.

  3. With all the HBO love, Gabe, will your True-Blood recaps no longer be tagged as ‘Hate Watching’?

    Because Jason Stackhouse bathtub hand jobs are the ‘Mary Tyler Moore throws hat in the air’s of our generation…

  4. couldn’t you have warned us about Spade?

  5. Sephora, huh? Noted. Anyhow, ‘why isn’t there more Drunk History?’ is exactly what I thought like two nights ago. Drunk. Trying to remember something something about Adams. (no luck.)

  6. Does this have lots of Peter Serafinowicz?
    I hope it has lots of Peter Serafinowicz.
    I’m gonna go ahead and assume it has lots of Peter Serafinowicz…

    • Peter Serafinowicz is THE BEST! Though I’m afraid he’s not fully appreciated here in the states. WE LIKE OUR COMEDIANS WITHOUT SLEEVES AND WITH THEIR HANDS UP A PUPPET’S ASS! USA! USA! USA! /caps lock

      • Hey, don’t put American comedy down. Few days ago I discovered Doug Stanhope. Now THERE’S a guy who deserves an HBO special.

  7. The only thing better than Zach Galifianakis is Zach Galifianakis in a wig.

  8. Why no love for Tim Meadows in the credits? Surely his years of comedic service are worth recognition.

  9. Oh, wow. I forgot about Drunk History. Those videos were amazing. Definitely looking forward to this show now!

  10. did anyone else hear Huebel yell: “PAH!”?

  11. If Adam McKay is involved don’t get your hopes up. Actually, I take that back. As long as Adam McKay and Will Ferrell aren’t allowed into the same room it should still be great.
