Funny or Die Presents... is a sketch comedy show that aired on HBO in 2009. The show features a variety of humorous skits, many of which were produced by Funny or Die, a website known for its comedic videos. Each episode is hosted by a different comedian, with Steve Tom appearing as the host for several episodes.

The show's format is similar to that of Saturday Night Live, with sketches ranging from political satire to absurd comedy. One notable sketch from the show features Zach Galifianakis as a pianist on a public access show who repeatedly insults the show's host, played by Steve Tom. In another sketch, Steve Tom plays a motivational speaker who is hilariously bad at giving motivational speeches.

Many of the sketches on Funny or Die Presents... are self-aware and poke fun at the conventions of sketch comedy shows. In one sketch, comedians Paul Scheer and Rob Huebel play two writers pitching terrible ideas for sketch comedy sketches to a group of executives. The executives are clearly not impressed, but the sketch is funny because it subverts the expectations of what audiences expect from these types of shows.

The show also features a lot of celebrity cameos, with actors and comedians such as Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig, and John C. Reilly appearing in various sketches. These guest appearances add an element of excitement to the show and make it feel like a who's who of the comedy world.

One recurring sketch on the show features Steve Tom as a grumpy old man named Ed. Ed is a hilarious character who complains about a variety of topics, including technology, young people, and social media. In one sketch, Ed creates a viral video that unintentionally becomes a hit on YouTube. The sketch is both funny and relevant, commenting on the rise of viral videos and people's desire for internet fame.

Overall, Funny or Die Presents... is a hit-or-miss show. Some sketches are genuinely funny and innovative, while others fall flat. However, the show's willingness to experiment and push the boundaries of sketch comedy is commendable, and it paved the way for other shows that followed in its footsteps. Fans of sketch comedy and alternative humor will likely enjoy Funny or Die Presents..., while those looking for more straightforward comedy may be disappointed.

Funny or Die Presents... is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (22 episodes). The series first aired on February 19, 2010.
