Genius concept well executed. (if they're all as good as "Bunnies")

Yep, "Bunnies" was the best. I found it funnier than the Ricky Gervais Show animations.

PATTERN RECOGNITION

I figure routines involving animals are especially well-suited to being animated.

Similar concept, but different animator (Ted Alexandro) and comedian (Steve Hofstetter) here

I hope so! I'd never heard of him before this, but the pyramid scheme joke made me a fan for life. The whole bit is awesome.

Thanks. Jackie Kashian's great.

If you liked the "Bunnies" bit you'll probably like the CD it's from: Kyle Kinane's latest "Death of the Party". Rest of the CD's also very funny.

And maybe listen to Kinane be a guest on ep. 84 of Comedy & Everything Else (podcast hosted by comedian Jimmy Dore).

He's also great on a recent episode of Stop Podcasting Yourself. And I first heard about these shorts when Jackie Kashian mentioned them on episode 26 of the Comedy Film Nerds podcast. (Yes, I listen to every LA-based comedy podcast in existence.)

Well, obviously, Stop Podcasting Yourself is not LA-based, but you know what I mean.

I was on a show with Kinane at the Bridgetown Comedy Fest in Portland. He's just a great comic; nothing mannered or self-conscious or arty, just funny. He did a great bit about giant pizza's advertised on flyers around his house in LA.

Jackie Kashian also mentions this on Pardo's Never Not Funny podcast (Ep. 719). I'm pretty sure these comedians run around podcasting each other. I'm ok with that.
