kurtbraunohler5mifv2013If you’re still blown away by Kendrick Lamar’s verse on Big Sean’s “Control” for dissing fellow rappers, then you’re very easily impressed. Before that you think that is a diss on you, just know that you’ll probably find The 5 Most Intentionally Funny Videos here at The Nerdist the most amazing, hilarious videos on the planet, because they’re already damn funny. It’s a pretty great problem to have, in my opinion.

1. Submitted: FKR.TV (co-founded by David Cross and French Kiss Records) launches a great, absurd web series parody of Homeland in Law of the Land.

2. Adult Swim squares off with intensely personal questions for Kurt Braunohler in an interview, as opposed to an interrogation, and Kurt isn’t taking any guff. (Listen to Kurt’s podcast The K Ohle here on the Nerdist Podcast Network and hear his appearance on the Nerdist Podcast)

3. Janeane Garofalo gets a tarot card reading of sorts from Emily Heller in her Above Average web series The Future, brought to you by an enthusiastic local sponsor.

4. Submitted: The pilot presentation for Institutionalized brings the demented high school comedy into the sphere of live action by Matt Peters (Orange is the New Black), Aaron Alberstein, and Mike Upchurch (Mr. Show).

5. Comedian Dan Telfer has released a great 24 minute stand up set, which is basically a half hour stand up special, for free on Vimeo (and yes, he does his awesome dinosaur bit).

And in case you missed it, check out last week’s 5 MIFV.
