Will Ferrell and Adam McKay

Adam McKay and Will Ferrell are best known for their work on the two Anchorman films – but the duo has been working collaboratively for years. This dates back to their time at Saturday Night Live, where McKay directed countless shorts featuring not only Ferrell, but other SNL cast members.

Film School Rejects has gathered up all of those early collaborations to celebrate one of the more underrated actor-director tandems in recent years, and you can swing by there for a detailed breakdown of all the shorts from the past decade or so.

If you’re feeling like that’s too much time commitment right before the holidays, check out a few of the early collaborations below. It’s interesting to see how the duo have gotten better with practice, which is sure to become even more apparent as they continue to make feature films.
