P. Diddy breaks all barriers on ‘Downtown Abbey’

In providing a sneak preview of his star turn on “Downton (or as he calls it, ‘Downtown’) Abbey,” Sean “P. Diddy” Combs breaks the color barrier, the time barrier, the genre barrier and of course the comedy barrier.

PBS denies that Combs has joined the cast of the wildly popular period drama, but “Funny or Die” provides video proof to the contrary. Besides, P. Diddy said it was so on Twitter, so whom are you going to believe?

Yes, there’s strong language, but quite mild compared to his performance in “Get Him to the Greek.”

I don’t know where I’ve been, but this is the first time I’ve run across “Funny or Die,” which according to Wikipedia was founded by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s production company, Gary Sanchez Productions.

Good stuff. Since SNL isn’t going to be funny any more with Bill Hader gone, y’all should definitely check it out.

    Have you seen the guy “act” on screen? It kind of reminds you of a kid in a 3rd grade play… or Jimmy Fallon.

    This was one of the Funny or Die videos that got a lot of play many months ago, the last 6 ex-Presidents coming to haunt Obama. Worth it just to see Darrell Hammond (as Bill Clinton) ogle Maya Rudolph (as Michelle Obama). And the return of Dana Carvey as Bush 41.
