My favorite 5 Second Films short is Another Monday, which in 5 seconds and a title tells a story, like that five-word Hemmingway story only funny.

They never see Leonard Maltin coming.

I really like the BriTANick ones, I'd seen one before but never knew the group.

Some of the College Humor kids used to be pretty good.

The best internet sketch comedy groups ever to come exclusively out of UCB!

I don't usually like to nitpick these lists, but shouldn't the guys who do Kid Snippets be on it?

The first one, BriTANick, is great but also frustrating because it the actors from Next Time on Lonnie, which has been promising a second season for waaaay too long. These guys need to get back to work.

5 Second Films plus everyone from UCB hurrah! (not that UCB isn't great just...there are other theaters & there has to be good stuff coming from those right?)

This is a shit list without the 1491s.

Two Austin-based sketch groups that consistently crack my ass up are Stag Comedy and Your Terrific Neighbors, both totally worth checking out. (Full disclosure: I am friendly though awkward acquaintances with people in both those groups.)

Thanks! This list was too heavily dominated by LA and N.Y. comedy troupes. Just like the rest of show business, I guess.

Oh hey, Elephant Larry are still around? I should bug Stefan some day, especially since I doubt he remembers me. Sadly, I don't still have his DiCK shirt.
