I love these guys! When I heard and saw the video to Jack Sparrow I got hooked. I been listening to some of their songs and thought they were funny.

Any of you guys are a fan?

Perhaps this could go into the music thread, since they are a band?

I'll allow it. Their videos are often on SNL.

Yes, they're more of a musical comedy troupe, and, as BirthdayClown pointed out, lots of their stuff does go on SNL.  They are funny guys.  Andy Samberg was probably the best addition to SNL since Tina Fey.

Like A Boss video with Seth Rogan is so funny. And I think I want to marry Andy Samberg. Natalie Portman rap is so cool too.

Aren't you the guy who said he listens to The Arcade Fire?  Anyone who listens to them knows/cares nothing about comedy.

As a music major, I beg to differ.

You listen to this for comedy, not because the music is actually good. I still can't tell if you're a fake account or just blindingly stupid...

I love these guys.

Not a fan of Shy Ronnie though, it's basically just a re-hash of Sax Man and a lot less funny.


In fact, as much as I love them, I think they should stop using 'call and response' comedy in their songs. There's an awful lot of it and it's on the brink of them becoming a bit formularic.
Sax Man, Shy Ronnie, Shy Ronnie 2, Mama and Jack Sparrow all have the same basic joke-structure... but yeah. These guys is great.

"Saxman" and the "Shy Ronnie"s are nearly identical, but I can't imagine there would be many types of jokes that work as well in comedy music as the usual straight/comedian bit.  Hip-hop songs about not so serious things like "Lazy Sunday" and "I'm on a Boat" are also pretty formulaic.  So long as the subject of the subversion of expectations changes appreciably, then I don't have a problem with them.
