If you’re a fan of Home Box Office (HBO), then “Funny or Die” may not be an unfamiliar term to you. In 2010, the success of the website led to HBO airing a half-hour comedy sketch show inspired by the website and presented by the comedic geniuses behind Funny or Die: Will Ferrell and Adam McKay. It is known as Funny or Die Presents.
Like the website, the show sees many celebrities guest starring in their sketches, such as David Spade, Zooey Deschanel, and Gary Cole. But it also regularly features comedians like Maya Rudolph from Bridesmaids and Andrea Savage from Step Brothers (a movie starring Funny or Die co-creator Will Ferrell).
While these episodes are not available on the Funny or Die website, by using their search function, you are able to look up sneak peaks and episode recaps. (See our How to Use Funny or Die tutorial for more information.)
