Web comedy is more than YouTubes of stand-up sets and GIFs of sleepy cats; the popularity of sites writing about comedy, aggregating web humor and putting a satirical spin on breaking news is skyrocketing. Doree Shafrir (Executive Editor, Buzzfeed), Adam Frucci (Editor, Splitsider), Sam Reich (President of Original Content, CollegeHumor), Christine Friar (Associate Editor, Huffington Post Comedy) and Jesse David Fox (Freelance Writer/New York Magazine’s Vulture/Splitsider) talk about writing funny things, writing seriously about funny things, writing humorously about serious things and how comedy’s increasingly shaping the growth of web media.
There are three things our listeners have come to expect from Comedy Bang Bang: Inside information about Hollywood, brilliant improvisers, and drunken English roller-blading Christmas trees. Well this week is no exception! Matt Walsh makes a welcome return and brings with him The Hangover 2 co-writer Scot Armstrong and entertainment legend Sappity Tappity. Alive or Dead is resurrected, along with the Improv Scene of the Week, and we get a batch of limericks, a look into Hollywood auditions, and some post-improv chit chat.
