Funny or Die: Season TwoHBO continues to offer the latest in state-of-the-art comedy with the release of Funny or Die Presents: The Complete Second Season.

With Funny or Die Presents, executive producers Will Ferrell (The Other Guys), Adam McKay and Chris Henchy (writers for The Other Guys) merge television-styled laughs with cutting edge Internet comedy. Based on their FunnyorDie.com website, the half-hour late-night comedy series, which airs on HBO, offer actors and comedians an opportunity to create off-the-wall sketches, animations, music videos and more.

Definitely not for the kiddies, the TV show includes disparate sketches loosely showcased within the framework of a “network” that features 1970s-style washed out graphics and music, and hosted by a decidedly unhip, white-haired spokesman who looks like he’s from a used car commercial.

The 10 episodes in the Funny or Die Presents: The Complete Second Season DVD features such delightfully-titled bits as “Do You Want to See a Dead Body?,” “Reenactments of Actual Conversations from the Ladies Rooms of Hollywood,” “Terrible Decisions,” “Men of Unquiet Desperation,” and “John and Will’s Animal Choices.”

Performers include Ferrell, John C. Reilly (Cyrus), Fred Willard (Best in Show), Gary Cole (The Joneses), Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids), Elijah Wood (The Lord of the Rings trilogy) and Rob Riggle (21 Jump Street).
