Our Funniest Videos of the Year
Yesterday we brought you our most watched videos for 2010, but as it’s the silly season we thought we’d celebrate some of our funniest guests and quirkiest ideas from the year.
Opening up the season of good cheer, like a pair of partridges in a pear tree we have the two Tones: Martin and Wilson. Miles from a Two Ronnies Christmas Special, the Tones talked about their own run-ins with the media including the article that was never going to be about a falling out with Mick Molloy, but then somehow was.
We encourage people to bring their midday meal to our Lunchbox Soapbox, but Monica Dux’s Happy Gestator challenged some stomachs when she talked about bringing a strainer to her water birth. The pro-poo attitude is just one of the expectations that Dux mocks in this frank look at pregnancies.
An international mother brought her take on parenting to the Wheeler stage and was compared to Tina Fey for her stand up style. Mostly she looks at the absurdity of panic parenting that seems to plague our society.
And if your partner is driving you a little crazy over the festive season, perhaps Sue-Ann Post’s polygamy could be the way to go. “Love is not rational,” Post argues as she mixes humour and honesty in this look at a new lifestyle.
Talk show host, comedian, bloke from Seachange and now novelist, Shaun Micallef will give anything a go. In this video he gives a giggle-worthy reading of Preincarnate, featuring some tres strict French librarians.
