I think we could use a surreal comedy thread on this board.

Mos def. Resnick is an absolute marvel of a tiny tiny man. Unedited Footage of a Bear is probably his magnum opus (so far). His other works may not hit the same peak of surrealism but they're definitely adjacent.

I thought you meant the Youtube series for a moment. I mean it's good, but it's not exactly surreal.

Have you watched AlanTutorial in its entirety?

it's a few hours long and it takes quite a few videos before you realize there is something more than just dumb silly little youtube tutorials but by the end it is a balls to the wall full on fuck my face motherfucker

I watched a few of those but never had the time to devote to watching the whole series. I'll check it out.

Resnick is great live btw.

Freddy Got Fingered. You can't look at this and not call it surreal. People think it's just dumb shit and mabey Tom Green had the honest intention to create dumb shit but it turned out to be a surreal masterpiece.

It felt like a Portlandia sketch, and that's not a good thing.

Twin Peaks could also be partially called a surreal comedy (season 3 in particular)

A seriously underappreciated film IMO. It's as dry as a 1st Season Episode of King of the Hill and bleak as all hell, but really checks my boxes!

The whole thing with ketamine is it makes you think that everything is ketamine.
I'm pretty sure I've thought just about everything is like ketamine while on ketamine at some point.
Slide guitar? Ket
Sand? Ket
Liquid? Ket
Static? Ket

that's just your faulty opinion. AN immortal man acting like an asshole cartoon character in a world of super heroes.

yea, real down to earth gritty realism lol.
All marvel movies are surreal.

Fantasy and surrealism are not even close to the same thing, though they occasionally overlap.

reminded me

Perfect Hait Forever is an anime parody but it delves into surrealism quite often.

Perfect Hair Forever is definitely surrealist, as is Xaver Renegade Angel. Quite alot of Adult Swim's original programming is very surrealistic.

Though I would say that things like Tim and Eric in fact go all the way in the other direction and are hyperrealist, which puts them into that uncanny valley of the bizarre and strange. This is kind of the opposite of surreal but in a sort of horseshoe way where they end up seeming similar.

David Lynch is very good at combining both the surreal and the hyperreal, leading to his very distinct style.

Check out The Shivering Truth, it's stop motion and really dark surrealism but good. The whole show has the feeling of that claymation Mark Twain show from the 90's where the kids come face to face with death.

The Birthday Boys is pretty good as well. It feels like the spiritual successor to Mr. Show and is produced by Bob Odenkirk so in a way it kind of was.

I was so disappointed when Birthday Boys was cancelled. That crappy netflix reboot of Mr. Show was just salt in the wound.
