Prepare to laugh until you cry when you see all of these memorable mockumentaries. You'd better have your Kleenex handy.

A documentary is good if you want to learn, but not if you want to laugh. These memorable mockumentaries won't teach you very much, but what they will teach you is how to laugh again.

Implications - Since 2001 when Ricky Gervais' 'The Office' debuted, mockumentaries have taken a new life in Western entertainment. 'The Office,' 'Arrested Development,' and 'Modern Family,' are just a few of the major sitcom franchises that rely on the mockumentary format as the basis of their show. Personally, I can't get enough of them. The concept of real people behaving ridiculously has always appealed to me, and the memorable mockumentaries in this post solidify that. Enjoy.
