These guys walked away with the domain name that many would have bribed for.  It is one of Comedy Central’s – the U.S comedy network – web offerings. With just your email you can sign up to receive “the joke of the day” by email. A ZIP code is mandatory.

The best thing about the jokes on is that they are not rehashes, but original stuff from the comedians on Comedy Central. If you are on the site, you can search for jokes by the name of these comedians, by tag, or by category. You can also catch many of the jokes on video clips being told the way it should be told.

The Onion

Okay, this well known website leans less towards straight-up jokes and more towards satire. If you like caustic sarcasm which simmers slowly to trigger giggle explosions, you will love this site. They take on news and lampoon it for all its worth. From local, national, and international news, to the voices on the street, there’s lot of funny stuff flying around on the site. Like me, you might love their “˜Infographics’. For instance you might want to know why fewer Americans are marrying these days. Then there are the videos too.


You can subscribe to The Onion and choose to receive news tidbits either daily, weekly, or opt for just videos. The subscription box is right at the foot of the webpage.

Slickly created and presented, Old Jews Telling Jokes are several mini-clips of standup comedy routines. The name of the site says all that’s to be said about the site. It’s almost an old-fashioned way of telling jokes, the way your favorite uncle or grand-parent probably tells them. You will have a neurologist, a dentist, a guy who is 50 and has run in four NY marathons, and more, relating funny anecdotes. Not every day, but the presentation is worth the gaps.


Take the RSS feed to receive updates, subscribe to their newsletter, and download the free podcasts from iTunes.
