John Krasinski Gives Us a Reason to Laugh

Fans of the Office are familiar with the face of John Krasinski, who played the character of Jim Halpert on that popular NBC sitcom, which ran 2005–2013. Now the actor and father of two has taken to YouTube, producing the wholesome and homegrown Some Good News show. Featuring video clips of everything from dancing health care workers to sock-throwing competitors to astronauts at the International Space Station, the show aims to relieve the stress of sheltering-in-place with comedy and good-hearted, family-friendly fun. In episode 4, Krasinski even puts on a virtual prom for seniors the pandemic has left out in the cold. To find Krasinski’s channel, search YouTube for “SomeGoodNews.”
