Without him, people wouldn't know that San Diego is actually German, and means "whale's vagina," nor would former President George W. Bush's moronic handle of the English language, i.e., using words like "strategery," be hilarious, not (entirely) disheartening to the American spirit. Thanks to Will Ferrell, the one-time Saturday Night Live M.V.P. turned Hollywood funnyman extraordinaire, pop culture enthusiasts of all ages have been given a multitude of memorable quotes, one-liners, and colorfully idiotic characters over the last 17 years, dating back to his 1995 SNL debut.
Through hilarious, oft-referenced fictional buffoons like Mugatu (Zoolander, 2001), Ron Burgundy (from 2004's masterwork of absurdist comedy, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy), and Ricky Bobby (Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, 2006), all the way down to lesser heralded but equally funny creations like Brennan Huff (Step Brothers, 2008) and Chazz Michael Michaels (Blades of Glory, 2007), he's become one of the comedic genre's most reliable and bankable names.
This weekend, Ferrell is looking to add yet another ubiquitous role to his already lengthy portfolio with The Campaign, a political satire written by a pair of Eastbound & Down scribes (Chris Henchy and Shawn Harwell). He stars as Cam Brady, a congressman riddled by scandals and whose usually untested election bid gets upended by Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis), a small-town simpleton with governmental aspirations.
Ferrell's fans will no doubt line up in droves to see The Campaign, mainly for one reason: to see if he has any more instant quotables for them to drop in random, casual conversations, whether appropriately or inappropriately so. Even if The Campaign lacks those repeatable lines, The Will Ferrell Soundboard, which you'll find below, is the definitive resource for any and all comedy lovers seeking hilarity. Because, as we all know, the man is kind of a big deal.
