YouTube and the comedy revolution.

YouTube is evolving so quickly that it's hard to keep up. It's being used as the public forum for the world. Allowing artists films to be seen by millions that normally would have been shown on public access or by a few people at a film festival.

It's also turning and eating it's young with a video going viral and then becoming the talk of the country, then turning into youtube parodies, and then everyone is a star. I wonder what Andy Warhol would have thought seeing his prophecy that, "In the future everyone would be famous for 15 minutes" coming true.

I came across this on Americablog.com. As they describe it: A very funny video from my friend Jeff Whitty, who wrote the book to the Tony Award winning musical "Avenue Q." Jeff is also the guy who, you may recall, caused a bit of a ruckus by calling out Jay Leno on some of his homophobic humor.

This is a tad long, but it made me laugh a lot...

Terrific! Even though nothing could top the original Chris Cracker thing (or whatever his name is). I didn't know whether to laugh or cry...

"Don't Apologize!!!!" I love it.
