Video: ‘Funny Or Die’ Release Donald Trump Mock Biopic, Starring Johnny Depp

posted by Oscar February 10, 2016

The Donald can be one of the most controversial (disliked, really) individuals for many of us, but if there’s one good thing about him, it’s getting able to make fun of him. Funny Or Die did just that but they did so to the next level with a full-fledged film starring Johnny Depp at Trump.

The premise of the film is that Director Ron Howard stumbles upon a 1988 copy of a Trump biopic that never got its scheduled screening and revives it. Also featured on this 50-minute movie are Alfred Molina, Patton Oswalt, Michaela Watkins, Henry Winkler, Stephen Merchant, Kristen Schaal, Paul Scheer, and more!

Stand-Up Special: Patton Oswalt – ‘Tragedy Plus Comedy Equals Time’

posted by Oscar March 18, 2014

Patton Oswalt will be releasing his new stand-up comedy special this year and it will premiere on Comedy Central next month. To help promote the broadcast, Oswalt as True Detective‘s Rust Cohle (look like a spot-on replacement for Matthew McConaughey) explains the intricate relationships between tragedy, comedy and time. See that clip above.

There’s also two bits from the actual stand-up previewed on CC including “Signs You’re Getting Older” and “Supermarket Depression” which are simply hilarious. Surely, this special will be awesome.

Patton Oswalt’s Tragedy Plus Comedy Equals Time premieres April 6 at 10/9c on Comedy Central.
