Last week, I wrote about how comedy has come to dominate Comic-Con, with every big upcoming comedy movie and TV show holding panels and high-profile funny people like Will Ferrell and Michael Cera getting in on the "cosplay." (I think I'm using that term correctly, but it's entirely possible that I'm not.) But then in the week following the convention, two videos chronicling alternatives to Comic-Con arose, both outdoing the main event.
First up, Joshua Jackson's Pacey-Con brought all things Pacey Whitter to the fans stuck outside the convention center (complete with Paula Cole's "I Don't Want to Wait"). And next, Adult Swim's Tim and Eric set up Awesome-Con to announce their upcoming movie "Blues Brothers 2012" (produced by Terminix).
The Daily Show was back this week in all of its Jon Stewart's white-bearded glory. The funniest segment of the week was brought to us by Jason Jones, who found someone who has dedicated his life to fighting against gay Nazis. This was classic profile-of-a-crazy-person Daily Show with a topical "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" message.
