By now, it’s quite possible you’ve had the pleasure of opening an e-mail containing the hilarious streaming video of Will Ferrell’s skit, “The Landlord.” We hope so, because it still has us laughing until we have tears in our eyes. Just in case you missed it, here’s the skinny: the short film features Ferrell, Adam McKay and McKay’s 2-year-old daughter Pearl, aka “The Landlord.” Pearl portrays a bitter little lady who just wants Ferrell to pay up or get out. It’s only a little more than three minutes long, but it’s three minutes of true comedy bliss.
The flick is just one of many short comedy films that are uploaded on Ferrell and McKay’s streaming video website, Funny or Die. The site hit the web in April and allows people to upload their own flicks and then have them rated by users. Now, Ferrell is taking the concept to the streets with limited performances across the U.S of the Funny or Die Comedy Tour, including one at Value City Arena on February 6th. The show will also feature special guests Zach Galifianakis, Nick Swardson and Demetri Martin.
If you don’t know by now, Ferrell is an Emmy and Golden Globe nominated American comedian, actor and writer who first established himself as a cast member of Saturday Night Live, and has since gone on to a successful film career. Well-known for his performances in recent movies including Blades of Glory, Anchorman and Elf, the comedian has over 30 film credits to his name. His next flick, Semi-Pro¸ features Ferrell as Jackie Moon, the owner-coach-player of the American Basketball Association's Flint Michigan Tropics, who rallies his teammates to make their NBA dreams come true.
