Disaster and election comedy

November 6, 2012

NYU resumed classes yesterday, but some of our colleagues, and many of our students, are still living in the dark or otherwise struggling to get back to normal.  We wish them well.  In the meantime, here’s a collection of comedy videos, viewable in the dark on your iPhone or Nexus as long as your batteries hold out.  Thanks to Joe Foudy for most of them.

  • The Daily Show’s roundup from last week, where John Oliver reports a dangerous shortage of mocha sprinkles uptown.
  • SNL’s replays of the Bloomberg and Christie press conferences.
  • In honor of today’s election, Alex Tabarrok points us to this video on the logic of voting (serious but funny) and Comedy Central promises a full evening of coverage.
