The Business of Funny or Die

Nice little Bloomberg TV profile on the business side of Funny or Die. We especially like how reporter Jon Erlichman refers to Conan O’Brien as “Conan”–pronounced like the barbarian.

Seriously though, we always thought of Funny or Die as some little website Will Ferrell and friends set up as a kind of creative dumping ground for ideas that weren’t big enough for TV or the movies. Turns out, the entire venture was far more calculated than that.

Sorry, but you may have to sit through an annoying commercial to watch the video.
