I need some ideas of funny/feel-good/inspirational YouTubes, cartoons, etc.

that I can email to my best friend who's really down: He's 53 y.o, is in an unhappy marriage (he and his husband have been together for 14 years), is devastated about what's going on politically, intensely dislikes his job, and lives in Rhode Island where he can't stand the cold weather (he's lived here in Southern California -where I am- for most of his adult life and is trying to get back out here as soon as he can). The two of us have been friends since 1993 where we worked for the same company. We initially had our gayness (I'm a lesbian) in common and the more time we spent together the more we realized we had a whole lot in common. We connect on levels that I've never connected with anyone else. We've been through EVERYTHING together. He's the most important person in the world to me. He has an amazing sense of humor, and I know if I send him some funny, touching, inspirational, links, it'll mean a lot to him. Thanks guys

1. Does He Like British Comedy?

GB has several panel shows that are made up of British comedians and they are funny as hell, especially once you know a comedian's schtick.

The one on YouTube that I've binge-watched twice is called Would I Like to You. There are 2 teams of 3 comedians each and an MC. The premise is each person reads a fun fact about him or herself and the other team asks questions to decide whether the person is telling telling the truth or lying.

One team captain, Lee Mack, is from a working class northern background. The other, David Mitchell, is posh and prone to self righteous outbursts.

It's better than it sounds and well worth a try. A recent episode had me laughing harder than I have all year.
