Comedy is a diverse and varied genre; no two people have exactly the same tastes.


With the advent of the internet, however, that doesn’t matter. There really is something out there for everyone—from lowbrow to highbrow and from cheesy to cutting satire.

Let’s start the laugh meter with the funniest websites on the web.


Engrish: Funny website

It seems somehow appropriate to kick off this list with It’s a website that specializes in pictures of English-language mishaps, often in foreign lands.

Let’s be clear, there is absolutely no shame in making errors when English is not your mother tongue, but this funny website typically focuses on errors committed by businesses—and there really is no excuse for them.


2. Funny or Die

Funny or Die’s bread and butter are viral videos, but it mixes them in with a healthy dose of original content from comedians as well. Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, and Chris Henchy launched the site, and it has since received lots of Silicon Valley backing.

Once you’ve registered you can vote on whether a video is funny or deserves to “die”, hence the name.

3. The Onion



If satire is more to your liking, you’ll certainly have heard about The Onion. It one of the best satire sites on the web Faux News: 10 Best Websites for Fake News & Satire Read More .

6. CollegeHumor


CollegeHumor has become one of the most well-known humor sites on the web. The site went live in 2000 and features an original series of pranks, mini-series, sketches, and animations.

It was originally aimed at the college-aged demographic, and while that is still arguably its core purpose, it now has something to suit most tastes.

Its success led to an MTV series in 2008 called The College Humor Show. Sadly, it went off the air after just one season.

7. The Oatmeal

The Oatmeal

Branded as “comics, quizzes, and stories”, The Oatmeal’s biggest draw are the cartoons that are crafted by its founder, Matthew Inman. The content itself is varied, covering everything from the English language to computer usage.

The comics follow Dilbert—the strip’s main character—through the mundanity of modern office life.

12. Epic Fail


Rich people crashing expensive supercars, skateboarders doing stupid things, and people walking into glass doors. We all know what’s coming with fail videos, but they never cease to be hilarious.

There are lots of them on YouTube, but arguably the best dedicated website is The creators upload tons of new stuff every day to this humor site showcasing the lighter side of life. It features both videos and pictures.

    How Good Are You Without Fun?
    Fun is enjoying happiness, significantly in sharing funny urdu jokes. Fun is typically sudden, informal or purposeless. It's a pleasant distraction, changing mind and body from any serious task, stress or tension. It is mostly related to recreation but also sought throughout work, social functions, and even activities of daily routine life.

    I agree with this list. I love 9gag as well. Another up and coming that I suggest is called Something To Laugh At ( They've gone viral a couple of times and even more recently since the 'LA man slaps hippo' at the zoo video went viral and made news and multiple media outlets. I checked them out and have been laughing since.

  15. Sillysausage

    I totally agree with this list! 9gag is always a favourite. Another one I've found lately (that's not listed here) is Always good for a laugh!

    I wouldn't place a lot of hope in They were quite funny and relevant up until last fall when they were bought out and the writing staff purged. Sadly, it is really quite weak and is pushing their online store rather than putting any effort into original material.

    About the only thing left of interest is their "pictograms" which is actually having the readership do the work at the cost of $500 to the "winner" while numerous other entries are posted at no cost to Cracked.

    Just a sad has-been site I'm afraid.

    Best site for jokes IMO is Sickpedia. Sadly I think we may have lost this brilliant source of topical jokes as the site suffered a hack a couple of weeks ago and they don't seem to be able to recover it. I do hope it rises from the ashes. BTW I have never found Dilbert funny.

  39. Joe Keeley

    College Humor is worth it for the Jake & Amir videos alone. The series has now ended, but there's a mountain of riches to enjoy from the years that they produced them. If you like those two, I also highly recommend the podcast that they both host now, called If I Were You.
