Twitter, with its 140 character or less update system, has become the go-to spot for comedy fans to get frequently updated content from their favorite comedians. The only problem is, you have to sift through an awful lot of boring Tweets to get to the good stuff.

Comedian and sitcom star Michael Ian Black has tackled this problem with a new website. Witstream.com showcases the jokes, observations and nonsensical updates of the funniest comedians on Twitter.

“So often I hear people complain they’re frustrated by social networks because there’s nothing interesting about knowing what their co-workers ate for lunch,” says co-founder and CEO Lisa Cohen. “WitStream solves this problem because 100% of the content is from comedians, who write some truly hilarious and insightful stuff.”

To celebrate the launch of Witstream, its founders are holding a show in New York featuring some of the site’s contributors: Michael Ian Black, Michael Showalter, Pete Holmes, Josh Fadem, Morgan Murphy, and Baron Vaughn. It’s happening Nov 2 at 8 pm at Comix. Click here for tickets.
