People think that the funny guy in the office would make a great stand-up comedian, but that humor does not always translate from the workplace to the stage. Ditch Films has produced a series of online shorts that puts a reverse spin on this, taking stand-up comedians and having them do their act in an unnatural setting for stand-up. I'm not sure if it's funnier this way, but it certainly makes for an interesting piece of film. The most recent features Chris Laker in an office cubicle (note: contains NSFW language).
After the jump, videos from Pat Dixon, Nate Bargatze, Jim Norton, Dustin Chafin, Matty Goldberg, Jason Rouse, Tomi Walamies, Mark Demayo and Bill Burr.
Pat Dixon is in a pool hall with a cue in one hand, a microphone in the other (losing to Tom Ryan, btw):
Nate Bargatze sits in a rocking chair on a porch, just hanging out with a pitcher of lemonade:
Jim Norton as a peep show? Sure. I've got a quarter (NSFW, obviously!):
Dustin Chafin goes for a romantic horse carriage ride through New York City:
Matty Goldberg gets the "classic" laundromat gig:
Rub a dub dub, it's Jason Rouse in a tub (NSFW):
Tomi Walamies is from Finland. Does it matter when you're performing in a cemetery?
Mark Demayo gets ready in his hotel room for a little action:
Bill Burr, back in 2007, tells his jokes in a playground. No wonder Philly never fazed him:
