Funny Or Die and comedy podcast network Earwolf join forces

In the Venn diagram of today’s comedy world, two of comedy’s biggest circles just eclipsed each other.

Earwolf, a premier network of comedy podcasts, has partnered with viral video juggernaut Funny or Die in order to mutually broaden each others’ following.

Starting in September, both new content and the back catalogs of Earwolf will be available on Funny or Die. Earwolf and Funny or Die-produced content will also be offered across platforms on Earwolf, iTunes, and Funny or Die. With this new partnership in place, such viral comedy staples as Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis will live at the same place as the popular comedy podcast Comedy Bang Bang, which are both produced by Scott Aukerman, co-founder of Earwolf.

The move just seems natural above all else, considering the ever-growing audience for comedy podcasts. And fans of Earwolf, no doubt watches a few, if not several videos and sketches on Funny or Die every day anyway.

Where this will go as far as new shows or types of content to be produced by either end has yet to be seen, but the possibilities are nearly endless. Maybe we’ll see a “Funny or Die Exclusive” podcast. Maybe, we’ll even get some video of Earwolf’s reality podcast competition, The Earwolf Challenge.

Even if Earwolf and Funny or Die just continue what they’re doing, it has to be great news to comedy nerds everywhere that they’ll have to click considerably less when finding comedy online to watch and listen to.

    I am an 11 year old student and I received
    the Roseta Stone German 1 for my 12th birthday. I really wanted it
    because I am a skier with the Green Mountain Valley School in Waitsfield
    Vermont. I was going to Germany and Austria in January 2010 and I
    wanted to be able to speak some German for y trip. I worked with the
    Roseta Stone every day after school and although I am not fluent yet, http://www.hellorosettastone.com/ it
    made my trip Super, Duper and I was able to speak and understand many
    of those I met and stayed with on my trip. My roseta Stone program did
    justs what I had hoped it would and I continue to use it, daily. By my
    next trip to Germany I should be quite fluent and understand almost
    everything. I would love to have German 11! thanks for your help in
    making German possible fo rme.
