I’ll level with everyone. When I’m not watching comedy programming, I’m watching PBS Kids. Two reasons: 1. I have a two year old son. 2. I fucking love PBS Kids. Even if you’re an adult with no children or you’re an adult who hates children, I highly recommend sitting down and watching about six hours straight. If you have a good sense of humor, you’re going to like it. My favorite shows? Glad you asked: Word Girl, which features voices from Maria Bamford and Patton Oswalt, Cyberchase (featuring the voice of Gilbert Gottfried) Maya & Miguel, Curious George and of course, Sesame Street.
I’ve said it before and I’ll continue to say so: Bert and Ernie are one of the best comedy teams in history. In fact, the only thing wrong with the below video, wherein Bert interviews Saturday Night Live cast member and one third of The Lonely Island Andy Samberg, is that Ernie’s not in it. Nevertheless, it’s totally worth your time. Check out Bert’s mad interviewing skills.
