This Week's Top Web Comedy Video: Useless Characters in Jurassic Park

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

As with any cookie cutter movie where characters die, there are invincible people who are very important to the storyline, cute kids who escape dire circumstances, comic reliefs that stick around for the lulz and...those forgettable people with punchable faces that you love to see get eaten by T-Rex.

The rest of this week's top comedy videos, including a vote-off with Thomas Lennon, 7 Minutes in Heaven with the Dad from Modern Family and Melissa McCarthy's hilarious Marbles character, can be found over at Splitsider.
