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?

What SCTV sketch is this?

SCTV-filter: In which sketch did Richard Harris (Dave Thomas), after being asked to keep speaking in his loud voice rather than lapse into his insufficiently audible quiet voice [both demonstrated here], say, loudly, "I'll try! But I don't know if I can sustain it!" [more inside]

Comedy is...

Help me identify a quote. In an old Simpsons commentary, Matt Groening was quoting somebody when he said, "Comedy is watching a dumb man think." At least this is what I thought he said. Who originally said this, or something like this? [more inside]

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.

Telling a joke until it is no longer funny.

I'm looking for stories about telling jokes until they are no longer funny. How do people who write comedy tell if the jokes they are writing are still funny after repeating them so many times? I'm interested in hearing more about the short half-life of the joke, and the ways a joke can function after it has lost it's ha-ha-ha. [more inside]

Movie scene where an incompetent dad burns the family house

Name-that-movie time! Bumbling dad switches on over-the-top Christmas lights, causing the house to go up in flames and massive disappointment. A colleague and I were discussing Christmas movies and we both thought of this scene but we can't remember the movie it came from. It's probably a well-known US comedy (like Home Alone or Honey I shrunk the kids) from the 1980-1990s. This should be a piece of cake but my Google/IMDb/Tvtropes-fu fails me.

French Movie Name

French Movie Name. I just can't remember the name of that french movie, it's happens entirely in one night in all over Paris. There was a football (soccer) match, some guys were watching it on a TV in the street, the guy or someone near him broke it and they wanted to kill him and the movie went all insane going all over the place and all over Paris with people getting killed all over the place (for what I can remember).
