Funny Or Die Presents "Internet 3.0"

The American Cinematheque had this idea to "blow up" these popular Webisode things on our giant screen, because, well, that's just the way we do things here at the Cinematheque. We like our filmed entertainment big and beefy and with our Dr. Horrible and The Guild event, we saw that 600+ other folks liked them better giant too. We don't believe that you can enjoy something that is only 2 inches square the same way you can at nearly 60 feet across. So there you go, Funny or Die thought they might be extra funny at 60 feet across so we promise you, Friday night WILL be funny. The folks at Funny or Die are just crazy enough to stray from their usual format of videos for the internet, to produce a live show about which they will only say this:

"A Live Show Featuring Surprise Guests And Premiere Videos at the Egyptian Theatre on Friday, December 11, 2009. We don't want to spoil the surprise but if you are a fan of Funny Or Die and comedy in general this show will blow you away. Comedic performers include Brett Gelman, Jordan Peele, Brandon Johnson, Charlie Sanders, and a really big comedian who likes to sit between two ferns and interview famous people. Plus, Astronaut Buzz Aldrin."

Buzz Aldrin you say? What's the deal. Well apparently Buzz conspired with Snoop Dogg and Talib Kweli to produce this (click to see "Buzz Aldrin's Rocket Experience").

Friday night is one of those not to be missed, once-in-a-lifetime experiences at the American Cinematheque. Don't miss it. Tickets are on sale now at
