I'd never realised we didn't have a thread for specifically musical comedy.

I'll start the ball rolling with The Bedroom Philosophers song about a music fire sale...

@hingehead,
Here's the van drivers lament. Don't watch if you don't like swearing.



Incidently Paul Whitehouse is one of Johnny Depp's favourite comedians

Kickin' it Old School - this should be used to advertise the T (more specifically, the Red Line):

Now I know where the inspiration for the new book "Go The **** To Sleep" comes from!

The best musical comedian I've ever heard--Tom Lehrer. He's from way back, but funny is funny. No fancy visuals, just funny.

@dadpad,
Love Tim Minchin! In fact, I think it was you who originally introduced me to him in a thread you posted. He has one quite serious and beautiful song about Christmas called "Drinking White in the Sun."

Still my working my way through these - love the van song and lullaby - have no idea what Trader Joe's is so the jokes don't always work.

This ole fave just came up - French and Saunders vandalize a pop update of a classic beatles track:

@hingehead,
Trader Joes is a chain of grocery store that has developed a cult following because of its business practices and relatively cheap prices for its legendary selection of mostly Trader Joe's brand food, etc....

Sorry about the ad--but that's Youtube these days.

I could easily take over this thread with Weird Al . . . but i'll just add one now and again. Here Al spoofs Micheal Jackson . . .
