OKAY!

If you don’t know about Josh Gad, what’s wrong with you, you dumb sack of butts? Didn’t you see The Rocker? Oh, yeah. Sorry. Nobody did. That still makes you stupid, though. That movie is hilarious! You should have seen it. Not just for Rainn Wilson or Jeff Garlin, but also (a BIG also) for Josh Gad. He has been my favorite up and coming comedic actor for awhile now. I assume he’ll explode after his run with The Book of Mormon. 

Perhaps you’re mad at me for calling you stupid for not knowing who he is. Fair enough. I’m sorry. I get heated easily. Perhaps now you’re saying to yourself, “Thanks for apologizing. I feel like we’re friends now.” You’re totally correct. We are friends now. As your friend, I know that you may not get the chance to see The Book of Mormon, but still want to see why I think Josh Gad is so funny. I’ve got you’re back. Let me share with you a BRILLIANT web series he’s in called Gigi: Almost American. He plays Gigi, an ambiguously foreign man placed in silent film-esque premises. It has made me cry laughing multiple times.

This is the first episode called “Speak Learn English.” I highly suggest watching all sixteen episodes. My favorite is “Gigi Sings for Gigi.” Enjoy!
