Since 1999, CollegeHumor.com has been home to some of the best comedy online. From its humble, dorm room origins, CollegeHumor has grown to attract over ten million monthly visitors, making it far more popular than any magazine except the one published by the AARP (different demographic). It employs dozens of young comedy writers and performers who, having grown tired of competing with online pornography, have agreed to commit their work to paper in this book.
