As if CollegeHumor isn’t funny enough, CollegeHumor Media has created what it refers to as a social comedy hub that curates, aggregates, and creates original funny content.
Jest.com will cater to a broader audience between the ages of 18-49. It will also have new and classic full television show episodes like “The Simpsons,” “Saturday Night Live” and “30 Rock.”
CollegeHumor said that they are using an original proprietary technology to gather comedic content from hundreds of sources, enabling Jest.com to pull top comedic content into a comprehensive database of over 50,000 videos.
The first of the “Jest Originals,” topical videos written, created and produced by the Jest.com staff, to debut will be “IKEA Breakup Room” which details a new (fictitious) spot in IKEA stores where couples can fight and, if necessary, receive break-up counseling. Watch it here.
Knowing the brand of comedy of CollegeHumor, the Jest Originals is what’s exciting and should be their best bet. As for their original proprietary technology that gathers comedic content, go hire some high school kids. They share funny videos better than anyone else.
