Michael Showalter Showalter Showalters other Web Showalters Up

Filed Under Funny 2.0

The second episode of the Michael Showalter‘s Michael Showalter Showalter just went up at College Humor this week. His guest this time is his fellow State compatriot Michael Ian Black. Click on the pic below to watch:

This and the previous episode featuring Zach Galifianakis are wonderfully squirmy comedy. Though the uncomfortable interviewing is fun, the faux lights-off off-camera stuff gives me the most joy.

The Michael Showalter Showalter is a bit of an interesting direction for College Humor, which has a kind of (I think sometimes self-admitted) rap for being lowbrow. I’m not sure it’s entirely fair - it takes a lot of intelligence (or at least, street smarts) to do stupid stuff right. But this new webshow is an expansion of a comedic voice that’s probably a bit more flexible to begin with. It’s also quite telling that they jump in with one new show rather than dozen. Even with College Humor’s insane traffic, how could you properly service all of them?

I’ve seen Showalter perform a couple of times, and I have to say that, at best, there were a few chuckles, and mostly it was borderline excruciating because he really had nothing funny or insightful to offer.
