Death isn't funny, corpses aren't funny -- but this series starring Rob Huebel and a bunch of comic actors you'll recognize is very, very funny indeed. The corpses, you see, are just an excuse for Huebel to drag a bunch of hilarious people around on ridiculous adventures: hosting an ice cream party in a morgue, going on a romantic double date to see a deceased farmer with Terry Crews (and two game women), trying to rescue John Cho when he gets stuck in quicksand, tricking Adam Scott into hanging out with him by pretending Scott hit him with his car. "You saw me at Chip's party and you blew me off," says a petulant Huebel. "You were with the guys in Hot Tub 2 and you acted like you didn't even know me."

On the way to find the body Huebel somehow knows about, Scott and Huebel rob a pharmacy and make a run by Huebel's apartment, which he apparently lives in with Morgan Freeman, who threatens to give Huebel a spanking for waking him up before he was ready. Then when Scott and Huebel find the body, a man in a parachute rig who died stuck in a tree, Huebel and Scott regard the body with comic awe. "Thanks for bringing me here, bro," says a humbled Scott, while Huebel muses, "We don't even know what happened. It could be a hitchhiker, or a drug overdose, or a bear attack." It wasn't. It was a parachute accident. But it's a funny moment, and Do You Want to See a Dead Body? is a hysterical show, if the idea of making comic hay from death and mayhem doesn't offend you.
