So no one told you life was gonna be this way...

Please recommend mindlessly relaxing American sitcoms to me along the lines of How I Met Your Mother, Community, New Girl, Happy Endings etc. I'm currently under massive amounts of stress and these are the only things that help me relax. [more inside]

Need help roasting my husband on his 40th

Looking for insults and jokes for my husbands 40th birthday party. It is a roast. He is a metrosexual, known for wearing pink. He plays golf and is known to get a little angry if he doesn't play well. He also loves poker and again gets angry if he loses. He thinks he has a big head, not conceited, but a physically big head. He comes across as arrogant but he really isn't if you get to know him. Jokes need to be relatively clean ie pg-13. Thanks [more inside]

Who is this violinist/comedian?

A few years ago I saw a violin comedy bit on a late night talk show. The violinist was making fun of the fact that audiences don't know when to applaud at a symphony because of all the flourishes and false climaxes. (Sorry about the mangled terms, I don't really know music.) He illustrated this on his violin, by playing what sounded like a real classical piece, but one that had multiple endings and kept picking back up right when you were sure it was done. Kind of hard for me to describe without musical jargon, but hopefully someone knows what I'm talking about. Anyone have any idea who this was or where I can find it? I can't seem to find the right Google key words.

Can anyone help me find this Kids in the Hall sketch?

Can anyone tell me the name of the sketch from Kids in the Hall in which they do a musical act in the style of old stage shows climbing up stairs and such? The song consisted of people just singing the partsof the song to show how formulaic it was, such as "chorus" and "bridge." If you can find me a video of it, that would be even better.

I'm lookingAH... for a comedy bitAH... where every wordAh... ended with an exagerrated 'AH' soundAH.

A few months ago while listening to XM Radio's Raw Dog Comedy channel, I heard an oddly funny monologue that I'm trying to locate. I can't remember what the subject was, but it was a studio recording of a lone male voice, and every sentence ended with a dragged-out "ah" sound. For instance, he might say "Four score and seven years agoAH! Our fathers brought forthAH..." and on and on. I know this isn't much to go on but I'm hoping someone will recognize the very unique sound of this piece and will point me to it.

What are these comedy videos?

There was a series of viral videos of a somewhat rotund boy playing spin the bottle and possibly doing other activities with his toys and possibly some other objects. The kid was actually an adult comedian. I can't for the life of me remember what these were called and can't find them anywhere. I think they were before Youtube. What was the name of the series and where could I find them again?

Carry On Metafilter

Are any of the Carry On films any good? If so, please tell me which one you feel is the best, with your rationale for why that is. Because I would be using this question as a possible springboard to watching one or more of the films, I'd like to request that you not include any of the actual jokes in your answers (e.g., "'Nurse, where's this man's tits?' Classic line!" None of that, please).

Seriously though it's hilarious.

Wizard People, Dear Reader literally made me laugh out loud at work. What other (free!) long format audio parodies, comedies, etc. should I try? I am not looking for traditional audiobooks and I'm not looking for unscripted or conversational podcasts. I'm also not looking for stand-up comedy routines. Fan Fiction is fine as long as it is relatively well done and hilarious.
