CollegeHumor. The Website. The Book. Paperback – August 23, 2011
by Writers of College Humor (Author), Streeter Seidell (Editor)
The first (and maybe last, depending on sales) anthology of the hugely popular website CollegeHumor.com!
Since 1999, CollegeHumor.com has been home to some of the best comedy online. From its humble, dorm room origins, CollegeHumor has grown to attract over ten million monthly visitors, making it far more popular than any magazine except the one published by the AARP (different demographic). It employs dozens of young comedy writers and performers who, having grown tired of competing with online pornography, have agreed to commit their work to paper in this book.
CollegeHumor. The Website. The Book. compiles the staff’s favorite articles from the first decade of the site’s existence, plunging the depths of the archive to bring you the very best of the very funny, including such favorites as:
Great Historical Pickup Lines
Honest Cyber Sex
Where I Hide My Porn
The Riddler Gets Lazy
Instant Messaging with Mom
Introducing Google Smartass
And hundreds more that don’t have catchy enough titles for the back cover!
San Francisco Book Review, 12/15/11
“The snark level here is exceedingly high, but the abject offensiveness is kept to a minimum, as the writers instead play on misconceptions, a shared library of cultural references, and the goofy social mores we all accept and engage in. This collection is great for teens and twenty-somethings alike.”
Midwest Book Review, April 2012
“A fun presentation of college humor gathered from the best writings on the website…Especially recommended for college collections and any general library strong in humor collections.”
