The channel formally known as the independent film channel and now currently known as the incredibly funny channel [sic] has launched an online comedy hub.
Dubbed IFC Comedy Crib, the site will be an online comedy hub for short form comedy from Crib co-creators Above Average and UCB. Four brand new web series have already debuted and more are set to come.
Comedy Crib is an interesting project to get behind. For one, it will bring new comedic talent to the forefront. It looks like it will also be a place for experimentation among its collaborators. Check out the series that the IFCCC has to offer below.
ClickBait Overload: Produced by UCB, ClickBait Overload offers viewers an inside glimpse of comedy’s creative process by gathering UCB comedians and challenging them to take two random topics, marry them together and then create, write and film a killer sketch video. Two catches: they have to incorporate unexpected props and they only have eight hours to pull it off.
Laurie: Starring Natasha Vaynblat and also produced by UCB, Laurie is a workplace comedy about a wildly imaginative assistant who goes to elaborate lengths to avoid doing anything productive in the office.
John and Geoff are Married: Created by comedians John Murray and Geoff Garlock, starring as two friends whose social lives change now that they are happily married (not to each other) with kids. They try to interpret potential flirting, boast about sexual conquests and fight to keep their sacred friendship in tact.
Comedy Drop: An IFC web series where comedians spring impromptu stand-up routines on unsuspecting audiences (some not even human) in unexpected locations such as barbershops, parks and costume shops – giving viewers a front row seat to the awkward places comedians will go for a laugh.
