Mid Hunter : This is such a bizarre moment. For the first time in human history, Conan didn't interrupt while someone was performing.

Christopher Hendricks : It's called irony people! Musicians are worshiped for being extraordinary and yet here Fred is just making mundane observations. It's especially funny if you play instruments and can relate to the little tedious things like disassembling a drum stand.

The Truth : The only thing I find annoying is when I drop my pick and it falls into another dimension

1k Subs With No Videos : Have you heard about the guitar player who got arrested for fingering a minor?


Ed Muzio : I pLaY dRuMs aNd GuiTaR aND ThIS iSn'T funNy

Tijuana : He told a joke with the word politics, without saying Trump. Give the man his award/vegetable.

Fortnite Productions : the political singer part, is definitely green day

L Blair : The funniest joke was when he said that drummers are musicians.

napukapu : Ok folks, here's how the bit works: People in niche groups like musicians or artists like to pretend they have access to marvelous elite information and can find joy in things the average "normie" won't understand. But Fred's showing us, despite how hard the cocksniffers try to obfuscate the humor with "it's a musician thing, only US musicians understand", in the end it's just a bunch of bullshit. There you go, it's not rocket science really.

Crazelord91 : > Video that is clearly labled as jokes only musicians understand > Dislike because you're not a musician and don't get the jokes

knicksTexansFan #1 : I'm a musician and all these jokes are horrible in my opinion.

M.B.G. Music Production : Drummers are so lucky...………….They get to spend all of their time hanging out with musicians!

G. Andaluz : So dry, and so funny, and so many people missed the joke. Damn that was funny!


Darren Mills : To the people who say its ok because he was trying to be lame... That doesn't make it any more enjoyable

GUNT HEAD : Ill never get those 4minutes back...

Fsuholley : Taking the cymbal stand apart leaving the cymbal attached is so true and funny as hell imo.

NeedyForMusic : That drummer's laugh was faker than Jimmy Fallon's...

mrekbass : Two guys are walking down the street. Ones broke... the other is also a musician! WHAA-WHaa-whaa!

Nazareadain : I mean, this is troll comedy. People think the jokes are supposed to be the funny part when it's people taking the bait and getting visibly and audibly upset at something as trivial as not understanding where the joke is. These jokes basically need the comment section, and I'm in tears after scrolling down.

Marcus James : Casually picks up a Gibson acoustic behind the couch to make a joke All my music equipment pricetags combined sum to less than this guitar's worth FFS
