Comedians Can Dance

Some might think that people involved in comedy are all insecure wallflowers that would rather stare at a Dixie cup and think of jokes and sketches rather than dance. Well, “some,” you’re absolutely wrong. Here are several clips of some of the most talented comedy folks ripping up the stage/dance floor/sidewalk/laundromat because some comedians will dance anywhere at anytime.

Nathan Barnatt danced to “Comme Un Enfant” by Yelle w/TJ Miller, Brandon Johnson, Josh Fadem, and Martin Starr (featured not dancing).

Fahim Anwar danced all over Los Angeles for the Fahim Anwar Dance Hour with video effects.

Angela Trimbur danced in a laundromat like no one’s watching.

The Spanglers (Jamie Flam and Vanessa Ragland) did an interpretive dance of life in 1956.

See “meta-dancing” (funny commentary on dancing while dancing) with Casebolt and Smith.

The Upright Citizens Brigade made an entire movie about dancing: Freak Dance.

Along with seeing a kickass boombox covered in Skittles, Nathan Barnatt is so damn good at being funny and dancing that he gets two videos on this list.

What would a comedy dance video list be without Conan’s string dance from Late Night with Conan O’Brien?…

And, just in case you were wondering, here’s what happens when comedians can’t dance because Justin Timberlake won’t do music anymore.

    check out Nathan Barnatt’s video for Madeon’s Pop Culture. Magical. Also an awesome song by a teenage French DJ.

    Makes me wish I could dance. Or be funny. Or be the boss of something in a beard.

    “All this leg shakin’ isn’t money makin'” might be my new favorite thing…
