Yahoo! recently launched a variety of original comedy Web shows, which are collaborative efforts between Yahoo! and top-tier production partners. The comedy channel on Yahoo! Screen was officially launched with the live broadcast of "CrazyStupidPolitics: Bill Maher Live From Silicon Valley," the first free online standup comedy broadcast. With more than one billion streams of original comedy programming to date, Yahoo! is already the top online destination for comedy.
The Yahoo! Comedy
Channel also features licensed content from top comedy content creators.
The new shows include "First Dates With Toby Harris," featuring Seth Morris (Funny or Die); "Sketchy" (Electus/ Principato-Young Entertainment), and "7 Minutes in Heaven"
with "Saturday Night Live" writer Mike O’Brien (Broadway Video). The
slate of comedy shows also includes the ever-popular Yahoo! Studios
original show, "Odd News,"
Yahoo! News’s weekly wrap-up of the strangest stories from around the
globe, hosted by comedian Greg Proops. All the new comedy shows are on Yahoo! Screen, Yahoo!’s online video destination.
Yahoo! will soon debut more comedy shows, including "Hackerazzi"
(David Morgasen) and "Burning Love" (Paramount Pictures/Red Hour), which
features an impressive lineup of celebrity talent and spoofs popular
reality TV dating shows.
