2009: For a good time, try typing www.CollegeHumor.com into your web browser’s window. You’ll find an endless stream of short videos that will do anything from brighten your day to cause you to hurt yourself from laughing too hard. I love a good laugh and websites has become really expert at providing humor in easily digestible bites that we can share with friends and family at the push of a button. Humor is what puts the viral in video.
STREETER SEIDELL podcast excerpt: "We were just doing this for fun and the enjoyment of our friends. The first was when I was doing a standup show and Amir told the audience not to laugh at me. And to heckle me. It was a horrible experience."
Joining me today are CollegeHumor.com writer-comedians Amir Blumenfeld and Streeter Seidell. They came to my attention in a recent Wired magazine feature by Jason Tanz on hoaxes; the pair is world renowned for pulling elaborate pranks on one another. I’m hoping to learn a little about their site and what makes a good stunt. That, and how they haven’t killed each other in the process of getting revenge.
