Funny Screen People Jon Hamm and Maya Rudolph Do Funny Things on Stage

Jon Hamm and Maya Rudolph have been funny in the same space lots of times. They’ve both appeared on Saturday Night Live, they were in the movies Bridesmaids and Friends With Kids together, and, back in 2011, they shared some scenes together for an anniversary edition of The Paul F. Tompkins Show, a variety show at L.A.’s Largo Theater hosted by the also very funny Paul F. Tompkins.

Tompins has begun releasing clips from the live shows online, and now we have this little gem. Tompkins attempts to hypnotize Rudolph at one point, Hamm arrives from the future to inform us that "human beings are at war… with monsters." Also, he’s Rudolph’s son. Blissful silliness ensues, and the whole thing feels very loose and improv-like, even though it’s scripted. And, you know, it’s the middle of the week, the weather’s been abysmal, the news has been full of dread, someone scuffed your shoes on the train today. We could all use a laugh, and as far as laughs go, this has quite a few.
