Rules

This Challenge overlaps with two well-established Challenges - October's Horror Challenge and the November-December Holiday Challenge. During the overlapping days, you can receive "double credit" by listing any qualifying items watched for those other two Challenges on your Comedy Challenge list.

It should be self-evident what titles qualify, but if you have questions about something you've never seen, check out its genre classification on IMDB, Allmovie, or metacritic, or ask about it in the discussion thread. Live events (stand-up acts, plays, TV show tapings, etc.) and audio performances (comedy albums, old-time radio shows) can also be listed.

Post your list in the list thread. Be as creative or as basic with your list as you want.

You may number (or not number) the items on your list any way you like. However, the preferred method is, as with the Holiday Challenge, any title watched, no matter how long or how short, counts as one list item. This should make it easier to record qualifying items on both lists if you participate in both Challenges.

The Jennifer Lawrence comedy No Hard Feelings hit Netflix so I waited a few days so it qualified. Glad I got credit because I didnít like it at all. Raunchy is not my favorite genre anyway, but it was mostly unpleasant and not that funny.

Watched a few things Halloween night that qualify, including the really fun Ready or Not

Since then I’ve been working or sleeping, so haven’t had time to figure out my focus this month.

I was watching The Munsters TV series as a late night fill-in thing for the horror challenge (didn't count any of it though) and picked up a copy of Rob Zombie's The Munsters when Amazon put it on sale "cheap enough." I watched it yesterday after watching the 2 original Munsters movies. It's not quite the train wreck I was expecting but also not as good as the lesser of those 2 original movies. Visually it's... interesting most of the time, quite garish on occasion, and fairly good on rare occasions. The script should have been much better. It's an interesting story - How Herman and Lily met - but poorly executed and very cliche. Having just watched the original series I caught a few references to specific episodes, which was interesting, but they didn't add anything. Sheri Moon Zombie proves, once again, that she can't act. Jeff Daniel Phillips did a decent job as Herman and Daniel Roebuck was very good as Grandpa (aka The Count).

I actually enjoyed it. It wasn't really that funny, so I'll agree there, but I was entertained. Jennifer Lawrence did a good job playing an unlikeable yet endearing character. I didn't think it was that bad, honestly.

Iím pretty sure more people agree with you than me.
