IFC Launches Online Comedy Platform


NEW YORK: The IFC network has partnered with AboveAverage and UCB Comedy to launch a new online humor hub called IFC Comedy Crib.

The digital platform will host short-form comedy made by some of the channel’s favorite comedians, along with acquired series from AboveAverage and UCB Comedy. Currently available series are ClickBait Overload, Laurie, John and Geoff are Married and Comedy Drop.

Project partner Hyundai has also signed on for 2015 releases of three new web series from AboveAverage, more new UCB Comedy series and IFC shows. As the launch partner of IFC’s Comedy Crib, Hyundai will be fully integrated into the online comedy destination and will be featured on-air via custom co-branded spots.

“Comedy reigns online and the Comedy Crib gives fans more of IFC’s slightly off take on comedic web videos,” said Colin Moore, the VP of digital media and alternative content. “We’re thrilled Hyundai recognizes the value in this content and has come on board as our launch sponsor.”
