Star Wars Funnies - Time For Some Lock-Down Relief!
As those of us in the U.K. and many others around the globe endure further lock-downs and social restrictions, we could all do with a little cheering up.
With its bizarre creatures and mythical sci-fi storylines, Star Wars has always provided a rich source of comic material. Here are a few of our YouTube favourites.
Even if you have seen them before, watch them again and have a giggle. We could all do with one!
(You may have to skip over an advert or two.)
Peter Sarafinowicz's Darth Vader
British comedian, director and actor Peter Sarafinowicz may be known to many from his roles in "Shaun of the Dead" and "Guardians of the Galaxy", his video for Daft Punk's 'Get Lucky', or his over-the-top portrayal of comic-superhero "The Tick" in Amazon's super reboot of the 2001 Fox TV series.
He does however also have strong Star Wars credentials, having given a voice to Darth Maul, a Battle Droid Commander and a Gugan scout in "A Phantom Menace", Star Wars Episode I.
We turn however to his very own TV series. Broadcast in 2007, "The Peter Sarafinowicz Show" gave us the unforgettable 'Vader In Love'...
Carry On Up The Death Star
The 'Carry On' films were a very British institution, but then, having been made just down the road from us at Elstree Studios, so is Star Wars!
What would have happened if the two worlds had collided?
Bad Lip Reading
We have all mis-heard a word or two in the cinema, but, the Bad Lip Reading team make a habit of it. Here are a couple of our favourites from their musical Star Wars parodies.
Apparently, the genius behind Bad Lip Reading is an L.A. based professional music and video producer. He keeps his anonymity to protect his day job!
Whatever is going on in your world, we hope those have made you smile.
