The Funniest Things Of 2007

Funniest Song Of '07: "Doo Dah Doo Doo," Ron Austar on "Tim and Eric: Awesome Show, Great Job"

Once again hip hop is fertile soil for comedy turnips. Last year's winner was the "Kramer Rap Song" but this year an instructional hip hop PSA urging dancers to think about their dad was the hottest solid gold comedy hit for 2007. No need to analyze just watch.

Funniest Viral Video Of '07:
"The Landlord"

Amateurs need to step up their game: Will Ferrell was a tough act to follow this year, as was the foul-mouthed 9-year-old landlord. Looks like future viral videos will actually need good writing (this one was written by Adam McKay and Will Ferrell).

Funniest Movie of '07: The Ten

The Apatow films were great, but neither Superbad nor Knocked Up were as consistently funny as this sketch film directed by David Wain. Never was there a more endearing rapist in recorded history than that played by Rob Corddry.

Funniest Show:
Human Giant

Nevermind the legendary 24 hour marathon with The National and Michael Showalter stopping by. No moment in '07 (film, TV, life) was funnier than Paul Scheer trying to fit in at the supermarket with his knowledge of hit commercial jingles.

Funniest Comedian:
Patton Oswalt

Ratatouille. Werewolves and Lollipops. His response to the AST poll. Even without these bullet points, Oswalt caught the whole Internet's attention with his rant on KFC. His Conan appearance in which he fires off this apoplectic philipic got 574 Diggs.

This is from the DVD included with Werewolves and Lollipops.

Funniest Sketch Group:
Whitest Kids U Know

A comedian friend of mine said he doesn't like most white sketch comedy and he prefers Chapelle's sketches or Chris Rock's sketches. He also said these guys are the exception. Lesson: white sketch comedy sucks unless it's the whitest sketch comedy you know of.

Funniest Website: Super Deluxe

"Layers" and "Tim And Eric Nite Live" make Super Deluxe the funniest website of the year.

Will Ferrell should keep doing impressions of George W
