Funniest Mockumentaries You Need To Watch

mockumentary is exactly what it sounds like. It mocks, satirizes a subject and sometimes the documentary format itself. They're filmed in the format of a documentary, except everything you see is fiction. Watch a mockumentary for a very interesting take that could be critical, political, satirical or comical in a format that might just make you want to believe everything you see. Whether or not you enjoy watching documentaries is irrelevant to watching films of this genre. 

We have enjoyed satirical films and dark humor for a long time. In the mockumentary format, a comical treatment to a serious subject becomes all the more fun. Covering various subjects from music to dog shows, these are some of the funniest mockumentaries ever made and we recommend you watch them at your earliest convenience.

This is Spinal Tap (1984)

Director Christopher Guest is a pioneer of the format. This one follows a British heavy metal band called Spinal Tap. This band comes from the place where eardrums go to die. Exploring the crazy world of rock and roll, the mockumentary is a parody of both rock bands and rock documentaries of the time. It has many great moments from a sculpture being made 18 inches high instead of 18 feet to the band getting lost on their way to the main stage because it's too dark. 

Best in Show (2000)

Another one by Christopher Guest, Best in Show follows five entrants in a dog show. It parodies the dog owners and the great importance they put into winning the competition. The characters also share the same personalities as their dogs.  With some of the best comedians in the cast like Eugene LevyCatherine O' HaraJennifer Coolidge, this mockumentary is comedy gold
