This Week In Web Videos: 'Precious Plum'

Way back, a long long time ago (in the early 2000s), a little sketch group called Dutch West became one of the first collectives of writers and performers who were adept at pumping out consistently high-quality comedic content for next to nothing or, literally, nothing. Their undeniable talents soon landed many of them at CollegeHumor where they formed an Internet comedy super group that has helped propel that site into one of the most recognizable online brands in the entertainment space. (Full disclosure: I work there, but I thought all this even when I didn’t.) Year after year, video after video, the CollegeHumor Originals team has managed to turn [...]

CollegeHumor Is Delivering 10 Straight Hours of Comedy with Its Annual All-Nighter Tonight

Every year, the comedy website CollegeHumor holds its annual All-Nighter, filming and posting new videos for 10 straight hours, and tonight is the night. From 8pm EST/5pm PST to 6am EST/3am PST tonight, the website will be holding the marathon as a part of YouTube's Comedy Week with a 10-hour live variety show hosted by Jeff Rubin accompanying the videos.

"It's always a ton of fun, until 4am hits, and then it's utterly surreal. Tune in and watch us unravel." The CollegeHumor gang will be joined by a [...]

Here's the trailer for a three-part web miniseries CollegeHumor made, based upon a fake trailer they made last year (embedded below) for a big-budget live-action Dora the Explorer movie.

The Jeff Rubin Jeff Rubin Show: Collegehumor Panel at New York Comic Con

This week on the Jeff Rubin Jeff Rubin Show, Jeff moderates a panel at the New York Comic Con consisting of the nerdiest people working at Collegehumor and Dorkly. They talk about writing nerdy comedy for the internet, some of the stuff that's bombed, and how many original Mario jokes that are left to write.

As is getting custom here is a small text-based sneak peek:

"As soon as you categorize videogames as work in your brain, it is amazing how fast your brain considers video games to be something you shouldn't be excited about playing. Which is such an asshole opinion for your brain to have." – [...]

YouTube is holding its first-ever comedy week from May 19 to 25th, and they got Sarah Silverman, Rainn Wilson, Jake & Amir, the Gregory Brothers, and a bunch of people I'm not familiar with together to film this promo.

Talking to Jake and Amir About Their Web Series, CollegeHumor, and More

If Facebook Likes, YouTube views and autotuned remixes are to be believed, Jake (Hurwitz) and Amir (Blumenfeld) are two of the most popular people on the Internet. Since 2007, they've been producing their eponymous web series for CollegeHumor, which follows their comedic double act as mismatched cubicle mates through some truly absurd and ironically not-safe-for-work situations.

Over the years, their show has grown up along with the Internet: transforming from a low-budget hobby to a legitimate comedy force. Through their prolific output, they’ve found a dedicated following, created hundreds of truly hilarious sketches and shown every other web series how it should be done.

Paul Scheer Auditioning for 50 Shades of Grey: "You like that cheese dick"

Scheer nails so many of Grey's 50 shades. There's grey suit grey and grey backdrop grey and poorly lit white paper grey and aluminum foil silver grey and cheese dick grey. Screw the book (which a lot of people probs would like to do), just give me Scheer in a variety of grey situations: holding an old Nintendo, chasing a squirrel, running from a wolf, or even holding an old Super Nintendo.

Watch a Supercut of Every Fake Video Game from 'The Simpsons'

CollegeHumor cut together every clip of someone playing a fake video game in The Simpsons. I mean, they probably missed one or two, what with there being 500 episodes of the show to sift through, so take it easy on me, commenters.

Talking to 'Very Mary-Kate' Creator Elaine Carroll About the Appeal of the Olsens and the Secret to a Great Web Series

It's easy to make fun of celebrities; just look at how many TV shows and Twitter feeds are devoted to nothing else. But it's a skill to spoof celebrity culture beyond the obvious one-liners and bitchy asides. Web series Very Mary-Kate imagines the world of the former Full House star filled with prescription pills, endless blimps, and an over-accommodating bodyguard (known only as Bodyguard). But the show's charm lies in its firm grasp of this alternative universe and the engaging, if eccentric, relationships at the heart of it, making the series as intriguing as it is hysterical.

The CollegeHumor series begins its new season this afternoon with an [...]
