You should watch Web series ‘Idiot Fencing’ and here’s why (Videos)

Sometimes, I wish all comedians with half-baked ideas for a Web series would just stay in bed and not act on their would-be “brilliant” impulses. And then sometimes I think those half-baked impulses are exactly what we need—if executed properly.

Such is the case with comedian and Onion contributor Matt Ingebretson’s Idiot Fencing, wherein two comics are pitted against each other in a sport they know nothing about. At the start of each episode (backdropped by quality music, by the way), the participants introduce themselves and reveal their combat training. What follows is a hilarious display of athletic incompetence complete with a moment where it all goes wrong more wrong. I highly suggest you check out all three of the videos in order. The last one has a special twist. Enjoy!
