By The YouTube Comedy Week Team

Arnold Schwarzenegger, The Lonely Island guys, and a cat called Lil Bub all walk into a bar. Know what happens next?

OK, neither do we. Luckily, we’ve enlisted more than 150 of the biggest names in comedy to join us for the first-ever YouTube Comedy Week. From May 19-25, YouTube will bring comedy creators and fans together for a series of live shows, new episodes from popular channels, curated lists from a range of stars and more.

Some YouTubers collaborated on videos that give you a sneak peek of what’s in store for YouTube Comedy Week, brought to you by the Governator himself. Someone also known as the most muscular man in the world, the man who kills bad guys and predators, and most importantly, a comedy connoisseur.

And there’s more where that came from. On Sunday, May 19, at 6 p.m. PT, we’ll kick things off with “The Big Live Comedy Show,” a global live stream in which featured comedians will do a mix of stand-up, sketches and musical performances. During the live event, and throughout the rest of Comedy Week, you’ll see videos from stars including Rainn Wilson, Ryan Higa, Smosh, The Lonely Island, Vince Vaughn, The Fine Bros, The Gregory Brothers, The Onion, CollegeHumor, Daily Grace, Epic Meal Time, Epic Rap Battles of History, Tobuscus, Sarah Silverman and Michael Cera of JASH and many more.

So check out the YouTube Comedy Week channel to watch tons of stuff that will make you laugh. This better be funny.
