1. My Harto
Hannah Hart is funny. Really, really funny. You might have already stumbled upon one of her popular My Drunk Kitchen videos, wherein she hilariously demonstrates how to prepare things like tacos, grilled cheese sandwiches, and macaroni salad, while tossing back liquor like there's no tomorrow. By the end of these brief videos, Hart is sloshed and sloppy, and the food she creates looks barely edible, but hey, we all had fun, so it was worth it.
Aside from her questionable cooking techniques, Hart has also been giving “advice” on everything from "How To Trick Yourself Into Being Productive" to "My Drunk New Year's Makeup Tutorial." She presents a brand new video every Thursday, so be sure to subscribe so you won’t miss a second.
Hosted by actor, writer, and producer Hal Rudnick, Screen Junkies is a miniature entertainment show that manages to bring in big-name talent to the smallest screen. According to their description, Screen Junkies is "where guys go to get honest and authoritative advice on what movies and TV shows they should watch and which ones aren't worth the time. With breaking news, trailers, reviews, and original features, Screen Junkies filters through the glut of entertainment choices to highlight the shows and movies worthy of guys' precious free time."
As you may have noticed, I am not a guy, but I still enjoy their snarky brand of humor and skewed take on broadcast television and films. I was first introduced to this channel when Rudnick featured actor Christopher Walken reading from the script of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, and I've been hooked ever since.
If you love parody videos of famous songs, this channel is for you! With an ensemble cast lead by humorist Mark Douglas, this musical comedy show lampoons celebrities, pop-culture, and internet memes with cutting satire and high quality production skills.
Perhaps my favorite Key of Awesome parody is their take on Ke$ha's smash hit, "Tik Tok." Theirs is called "Glitter Puke" and features a look-alike (and sound-alike) lead singer who completely nails her Ke$ha impersonation. Another favorite is their spoof of Lady Gaga (featuring Beyonce) in "Telephone," which has gained over 28 million hits on YouTube to date. Their parody of Walk Off The Earth's cover of "Somebody That I Used To Know," by Gotye, made our list of the 10 Best Web Humor Videos of 2012.
Jenna Marbles is the pseudonym of entertainer Jenna Mourey, a California girl who hit it big with her video, "How To Trick People Into Thinking You're Good Looking." This two minute clip of Jenna wryly calling herself ugly and piling on make up to give "the illusion of hotness" got over 5.3 million views in its first week on YouTube. Since then, Marbles has been cranking out videos every week, and with over 5 million subscribers, hers is one of the most popular channels on all of YouTube.
