There are so many things to digest this week you guys! Like, there are THREE (3) new web series to get to grips with. Is that too many web series for one week? Who knows? They all star good people that we like and I enjoyed them all. As well as that there are two Netflix series to lose a weekend to. This is the famous Second Week In November Web Series Deluge that I was warned about when I took this job on. It’s not a patch on the 2013 Second Week In November Web Series Deluge when three Tittererers went mad from watching sixteen straight hours of new web series and had to sit down in a quiet room with a bible and a glass of milk until they recovered. It’s all go here in Tittererer world. There’s so much stuff that I couldn’t choose which piece to put in the title so I chose Marx & Engels because that’s a funny thing to have in the title of a comedy roundup isn’t it? Right? We have fun. In other news, I’m away next week so Giles Brody will be doing a much better job of this than I usually do. Let’s gooooo.
1. Historical Friendship – Marx & Engels

So let’s begin here with the first in a new series about historical friendships written and directed by Tom Rowley and starring Tom Rowley, Ed Sammon, Dave Rudden, and Deirdre Sullivan. Deirdre Sullivan has been in about 70% of all HeadStuff humour posts for the last month and there’s nothing we can do to stop her. Back to Marx & Engels. This sketch is a) funny, b) sweet, and c) captures my own insecurities about communism. Everything I look for in a sketch basically. And it has a theme song! By No Monster Club no less! Truly, a web series aimed straight at my heart.
2. Dog In The Street

A sketch that was originally shown during The Alison Spittle Show. Alison Spittle finds out what the dog in the street knows. The dog is voiced by none other than Giles Brody. Truly, a sketch aimed straight at my heart.
3. With Bob And David
Bob Odenkirk, David Cross, and pretty much everyone who was involved in Mr.Show return in With Bob And David this Friday the 13th on Netflix. To whet your appetite, here‘s an AV Club interview and there’s a sketch down there.

OK so Aziz Ansari’s new show was actually released on Netflix last Friday. I messed up. That’s on me. It’s great though! You should watch it! Here‘s a good piece he wrote for the New York Times about minority representation in TV and Film by way of apology.
5. Everyone’s Crazy But Us

Our next web series is Everyone’s Crazy But Us starring Janet Varney (Burning Love) and Diedrich Bader (The Drew Carey Show, Veep). There are five episodes and it’s good! Borderline sociopaths who think that they’re the normal ones are always good.

And finally, Michelle Wolf stars as a eccentric HR recruiter whose cats are also cat-owners. This is very funny you guys.
And that’s your lot! A good week I think? I was entertained anyway. By the way, I’m totally not bothered about missing TD #50 next week. Not bothered at all. No sir. It’s just a number. A nice round number that looks cool.
