2020 Sketches That Kept Us Going
Well, here we are, the end of December, another year has come and gone. There were highs, there were lows, and lows, and lows, and there were even more lows. I don ‘t know where you ‘re from or what exactly your year entailed, but what I do know, and what we can all agree on as absolute fact, is 2020 sucked. Like, it fucking suuuuuuucked, dude. Remember when we all thought 2016 was the worst year? HA! If only, am I right?
Fortunately, this year was also peppered with some truly wonderful comedy. Whether providing commentary and criticism on the slew of political failings, satirical looks at life in quarantine, or blissful moments of escape from anything to do with the pandemic, comedians and creators in the digital sphere have played a huge role in keeping our spirits up and keeping us sane by keeping us laughing.
This is by no means a complete list, because there ‘s just been too much great shit created this past year for one writer (me) to mention and for one person (you) to be bombarded with in one article. These are twenty sketches and videos that made this complete nightmare of a year brighter for us and we wanted to share with all of you, so that we can bid good-fucking-bye to 2020 in a way we all deserve: with a shit ton of laughs.

Meg Stalter embodies the kind of vote counter the Trump administration has been trying for months to prove exists, and it ‘s honestly a little shocking they didn ‘t try to use this sketch as video evidence in court
