Funny Bitch Friday: Let’s Shake It Up, You Guys

in Funny Bitch Friday

Over the next few weeks, some really cool shit is happening with The League, and a great deal of it I will need your help with. Hang with me here, I have a funny video to bribe you with at the end.

Changes Round 1:

The League started more than a year ago as a way to showcase truly amazing and hilarious people who deserve more accolades than can be given. I find that too often, really funny people, both men and women, don’t get the press they need and want, and then drop off after some time. That’s a waste of talent and a waste of funny. I hated that–I wanted it stopped. If you’re funny and want to continue to be funny, I want to know who you are.

For a long time, The League has primarily highlighted bloggers and web comic artists, and I now have a nominations list that is pages long, and a League List that isn’t much shorter. It’s done exactly what I wanted it to do: highlight amazing people and bring together the funny into a force to be reckoned with.And now, I’d like to make some changes to make The League even stronger. I want to start highlighting funny people across all media.

In addition to bloggers and web comics, I also want to include funny Web Series, Podcasts, Sketch/Improv Teams, Stand-Up Comedians, Twitter Folk, and anything else you can think of that’s funny and that you think I and a shitload of other people will laugh at. Everything will be categorized for easier searching and viewing, and now ALL ARE WELCOME. I want anyone who’s anyone funny to have a shot, and that opens us all up for new content and new people to love. Show me who you love, and they may just be inducted!

Submitting Nominations:

There is very little against the rules as far as being in The League, but please be careful about dead blogs. I’m going to start archiving dead blogs (those over a year without a post). I also immediately remove any links to plagiarized material. If you catch someone plagiarizing faster than I catch them, let me know. Plagiarizing is bullshit.

The submission process is the same as always: you can nominate yourself or someone else, just provide me the links to view, and a short description, because emails that just contain a link and nothing else are shady as fuck and get deleted. Please submit those that consistently make you laugh out loud! Just let me know in the comments who you’re nominating and why, or you can email me at noagavin (at) ohnoa (dot) com or by filling out the contact form.

Changes Round 2:

Next week, we’ll vote on the third round of League All-Stars, who are those blogs the readers (I don’t vote!) decide are the best of the best. They get a specials section above the fold in the sidebar, and we vote every six months. Or seven in this case, because I decided to do all the changes at once, so suck it. You’ll get to vote on 15 members who you think are the best, but you only get to vote once, so make it count!

The week after next the results will be announced.

Changes Round 3:

Here’s where the super exciting stuff starts to come in. After we finish inducting League All-Stars in the 3rd round, I’m starting a new section on the site devoted to The League–a sort of behind-the-scenes affair that will be more involved. I’m keeping details kind of close to the chest for now, but a newsletter, a joke-throwdown competition that’s held weekly, and a revamped podcast (with more in the future…a book is possibly in the works) are coming to that section. Here in a few weeks, I will have all the details lined out for you, but keep your heads up.

So For Now:

Submit who you want to see in The League–no matter the media. As long as I can see them be funny, you can nominate them. Unless you send them to my house, because it’s super hard to get into my complex. They lock me out on many occasions.

It’s because you work to keep funny alive that I am able to start the new cool projects we have coming up soon. Keep on bringing the funny, guys. The League is bigger and better than I ever thought it could be, and it just keeps getting better. Thank you all.

As promised, here is your bribe video!

Favorite Comment From The Last Post:
From Dear Sweet Mama: “Newark – OH MY GOD – it is like trying to fly out of hell when the devil has aholt of your coat tail. Last time I flew out of there, after a 6 hour delay which they kept telling us would be another 1/2 hour (and I could have rented a car and driven to where I was going) one of my co-passengers was upset because she was missing her dad’s funeral. The gate agent said “That’s your problem, isn’t it?” Gotta love NJ.”

This is awesome. I’m so impressed by your reaching out to other writers/funny people. I’ll be on the look out for funny people to nominate and can’t wait to read the ones who end up in the running.

Okay, just watched the second video and thank you so much for introducing me to the Asian Carlton! Also, why is he yelling at the girl’s ass?

“Also, why is he yelling at the girl’s ass?”

He is showing consternation for what he cannot have.

And he keeps saying “Condom Star”.

Leave it to you to make the world wide web even more kick ass. Brava, chica! This has the makings of extreme awesomeness. I will surely stay tuned for what is in store.

That’s right. The only thing better than funny bitches is more funny bitches.

Johi August 10, 2012 at 9:23 am

I’m so excited that I momentarily forgot that I am sitting in a room filled with dried Play-doh, cat hair, the shattered dreams of my unused art supplies and random puzzle pieces scattered on the floor. I look forward to seeing what will come of the League!

Excited for the upcoming changes for Oh Noa! You can never have too many funny bitches.

I ain’t too proud to nominate myself and my show:

It’s a fake late night talk show. We satirize the news and modern culture through absurd interviews with unprepared guests played by awesome comedy-type people. We also do improv scenes based on audience suggestions and sketch comedy.

Where do you FIND these videos?!…I want to send “Gangham Style” to Beiber’s Twitter account so badly right now to show him what real swagger looks like. You can’t fake that. PSY is a straight up gangsta! Am adding “watch all of PSY’s videos” to my to-do list right now. So I can say I got at least one thing done today.

I am SO not above nominating myself as my self-esteem is simply that high. Or is it low? I’m not sure.

Anyway, your readers can judge for themselves.

Simply click my name (sadly, that is my real name) above.
