CollegeHumor Media to Expand With New Gaming Comedy Website 'Dorkly.com'

NEW YORK, June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Frustrated by the "15 Most Annoying Levels in Videogame History?" Looking for a place to share your latest nerd war story with fellow gamers? CollegeHumor, an operating business of IAC (Nasdaq: IACI), has developed the perfect place for you. Today CollegeHumor Media announced its expansion with the launch of Dorkly.com, a new videogame humor property catered to all gamers, be they nerds, geeks, or even dweebs.

"We noticed there are great sites for single-property videogame humor - a funny videogame webcomic, for example," said CollegeHumor's Executive Editor, Streeter Seidell, "But there wasn't a site that consolidated all types of funny videogame content in one place.  That is what we hope to provide with Dorkly."

CollegeHumor's award-winning staff will edit all of Dorkly's content, which will feature original articles, comics, user-submitted photos and viral videos relevant to the gaming community. Delivering comedy inspired by everything from Frogger to Halo, Dorkly will be the web's go-to source for funny content about games and gaming culture.

"Gaming is so prevalent today that it really deserves a humor brand and hub of its own.  We hope that Dorkly will fill that void," said Josh Abramson, President and co-founder of CollegeHumor. "Some of our most popular original content on CollegeHumor is gaming-related so this was a natural move for us."
