Online Comedy Panel

This is fabulous. They're the most chain-smoking, self-deprecating bunch of scowling gits you could imagine. And they're giving damn good entertainment.

Fundamentally they all agree that doing cutting-edge satire will alienate any potential advertisers.

And Charlie Brooker has claimed the reason he missed out on any potential revune from selling his book was because he was just too damn inept to realise that Amazon Partners exist. He's far more charming in real life than you'd imagine from the creator of Nathan Barley.

Rockall Times, TVGoHome and TheFridayThing are all on the panel, btw. And there's a guy from The Register hosting. Go figure.

The missus has just sagely pointed out that the person who's most vehemently opposed to ads on their site is the only one who's already made money. She is clever.

They all believe though, that there is a market for a really kick-arse online comedy site. Which is good.

CB still sticks to his claim that the ultimate comedy is 'funny cum-shots'. :-)))))))
