hilarious websitesWe all have our bad days. A laptop that gets stolen, keys that disappear into the drain and those mothers-in-law.

When you’re having one of those days, we all need to be cheered up.

Actually, even without having one of those days, most people can use a good laugh. And because none of your friends know any good jokes to tell, MakeUseOf comes to the rescue.

Below is a compilation of hilarious websites you can visit for a good dose of humour. Of course, this list is not complete, by far. If you think we missed something, add it in the comments!

Comedy Videos

Need a laugh now? First stop; online video. The net is filled to bursting with videos that make you giggle. Dry British humour or slapstick entertainment, it’s your call. On most hilarious websites like these though, it’s often the latter.

Today’s Big Thing isn’t ‘only’ a humor site. It was created to aggregate the coolest videos on the net, every single day. Although more subjects are covered, a laugh is often included. Want to play safe? Go to the funny videos channel.

CollegeHumor is one of the most hilarious websites on the web. You’ll find very funny pictures and essays, but mostly videos. Most videos are aggregated from all over the internet, but you should also check out the CollegeHumor Originals – these are made by the CollegeHumor staff and are more often than not of supreme quality.

Break is an online video sharing community. Unlike YouTube though, it only focuses on funny videos. With no other filters than the community machine, quality is not always guaranteed, but the funniest videos of the web get born on sites like these.

Funny Webcomics

Next stop, webcomics. For more inspiration, be sure to check out 5 Great Webcomics You Should Read and 10 Great Online Gaming Webcomics.

dilbertDilbert is (the second is XKCD) one of the best geeky webcomics. That is, the main character is a bit of a geek, but it’s accessible for everyone with a taste for dry humor.

A MakeUseOf favorite, Dilbert is about personal geeky problems and the day-to-day hilarity of a highly dysfunctional business.

Explosm‘s humor is a tad less delicate. It mostly involves almost brutal sadistic jokes and disgusting punchlines. If you enjoy the weird and indelicate funnies, this one is for you. Not always safe for work, though.

Since Explosm has multiple authors, the quality and ‘funniness’ is not always consistent, though. You might have to skip a few to get to the good ones.

Wulffmorgenthaler is a hilarious, often one-drawing comic. And its humor is often even drier than Dilbert’s. Not always safe for work either, as you might see a naked Easter bunny once in a while, but rarely anything ‘disgusting’.

Parodist News Channels

It’s important to watch real news. But also boring. Give your news a twist with these fake news channels. Beware – a touch of cynicism is advised.

hilarious video clips

The Onion News Network (ONN) is one of the most popular fake online news channels there are. With everything performed and produced with incredible realism, it’s not uncommon to realize the ‘fake’ only halfway through the video. Of course, the subjects are often so excessive, they just can’t be missed.

Don’t watch without a sense of humor and perspective – the ONN is not afraid to touch sensible subjects.

hilarious video clips

The Daily Show should be known to all. It’s a satirical news show on Comedy Central, hosted by the magnificent Jon Stewart. Most ironically, he was chosen as America’s ‘most trusted newscaster’ earlier this year in an online poll by Time Magazine. Which might be justified if you can read behind the sarcasm, but would otherwise be just very sad.

You can watch a few funny excerpts, and even entire episodes if you live in the US internationally!

4chan (NSFW)

This is one excessively funny website, belonging in all, yet none of the categories above. With their background, a separate mention is nothing but righteous.

You might know them as the guys behind Lolcats and the Rickrolling meme. Most people know them as the biggest retards on the internet. And that’s not an insult, it’s their legacy, carried high. 4chan is a free-to-join anonymous forum with boards for – well, almost everything. Although serious discussions occur, most is filled with pictures and craziness (refer to the above screenshot). Not too right in the head and willing to browse the endless forums? Hilarity ensured!

If you’ve got any other tips, be sure to mention them in the comments below. What are your favorite funny websites?

  • Too Damn Funny

    Pretty Good choices with diversified choices from one extreme to the next. VSFW to VNSFW. Humor is almost as mysterious as the Chicken or the Egg Premise. What makes one person laugh can make another one cry. Although being able to laugh at yourself is a important ingredient, it is often left out and spoils some recipes in comedy.

    An additional one to consider is

    http://thecomedynet.com

    “A Totally Mesmerizing Compilation Of Incredulous Humor and Videos” with links to other engaging and time filling sites.

    Some of our favorites are listed and new ones are seeked out to become favorites. Without humor there can be no smiles and without smiles-the toothpaste industry would go bankrupt.

    You shouldn’t be listing 4chan. Rules 1 and 2 of being a 4chan member are to never talk about 4chan.

  • lefty.crupps

    FunnyorDie.com is always a great way to get some laughs and waste too much time.

  • KIp

    I like the links man. The 4chan one was marked NSFW – what do you think that means.

    I have just started my new site evilmunky.com – Safe for work amusing / funny / cute / wtf pictures in an easy to use ad free format. Please check it out.

      NSFW does NOT mean underage children engaged in sexual acts. This is a wholly innappropriate website to recommend.
