When Food is Funny

Food is not just something to eat—it’s something to laugh at too. Have you ever watched a baby try eating, say, green beans? Or watched someone taste a foreign “delicacy” that turns out to be something they weren’t entirely expecting? We have, and it’s hilarious.

Then there are these 6 comedians. They have taken making fun of food—and sometimes the people that eat a particular food—and turned it into an art form and a profession. And we’re jealous.

Note: Some of the videos have mild to moderate language.

  1. Brian Regan on Food Labels and Serving Sizes: Have you ever looked at a food item and read the food label? You get excited because it looks delicious and the food label makes it look like it’s pretty healthy. Then you see the serving size. Brian Regan knows all about that.
  2. Jim Gaffigan on Cake: Jim Gaffigan is the king of food jokes. In fact, he even wrote a book called Food: A Love Story. It took a while to choose just which food joke we should include here, but we finally narrowed it down.
  3. John Pinette on Fast Food Lines: Ever been in a line at a famous fast food restaurant and the person ordering is just staring at the menu like they don’t know what they want? John Pinette doesn’t like that!
  4. Saleem Muhamed on Food Addiction: Saleem lost 105 pounds, and it was hard, especially when he’s addicted to food.
  5. Cory Robinson on Fast Food: Cory Robinson tried the Taco Bell Diet—and it worked, but not the way he thought!
  6. Jerry Seinfeld on Food at the Supermarket: Going to the grocery store to get food is an experience like no other—and it can be traumatic.

Bonus: Alright, one more with Jim Gaffigan because, like we said, he is the KING of food jokes and it was hard to choose just one from him. So, here he is talking about McDonald’s.

Ok, fine just one more. Watch Jim Gaffigan discuss Hot Pockets.
