CollegeHumor.com Needs Writers and Illustrators With a Knack for Comedy

college-humor-article-3

Although some still associate CollegeHumor.com with fratboy jokes and gross-out videos, the site has evolved many times over since its inception in 1999 and is now a pop-culture comedy site for the masses.

There are still plenty of viral videos, but the site also boasts a diverse array of content, from listicles to classic comics to illustrated graphics. CollegeHumor is on the lookout for talented freelancers with solid comedy chops and plenty of fresh ideas:

The site is ideal for comedy writers who aren’t really into performing. It’s the perfect place to pitch your jokes and practice your writing skills. ”[Freelancers] should take advantage of the wide range of content on our site. We have a spot for nearly any sort of [comedic] idea.” says editor-in chief Susanna Wolff. ”And we really like building continued relationships with freelancers.” So if you’ve got even a glimmer of potential, editors will nurture you and encourage you to keep submitting new material.

To hear more about the site, including the various ways to submit your ideas, read: How To Pitch: CollegeHumor.com.
