WITSTREAM® IS A NEW KIND OF COMEDY BRAND, delivering a steady stream of up-to-the-minute comedy headline news to audiences in real time across media platforms.

WitStream is the only curated, live comedy news ticker providing an endless flow of hilarious commentary 24/7. WitStream’s content is available via its website, mobile devices, syndication, digital out-of-home networks, and sometimes even live. It is the nexus of an exclusive group of established comedians, professional comedy writers and all-around brilliant humorists, from famous comedians to the people who bring you Saturday Night Live, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, and more.

You used to wait hours and sometimes days before getting the comedic take on the news, but now you can have it while the stories unfold. WitStream.com helps audiences break through the clutter of online comedy to find what’s really funny about what’s happening, NOW.

WitStream was built on the notion that consumers need an easy, one-stop solution to streamline the digital comedy experience. It is easy to become overwhelmed by the massive amount of content online: for every laugh-out-loud one-liner, there are dozens of boring tweets, status updates and videos that end up, well just being a waste of time. Facebook “friends” have an opinion about everything, but that doesn’t mean you want to be subjected to it.

WitStream culls through the dull to bring users comedy headline news—and only the best-written, funniest headlines with a distinct point of view. WitStream contributors strive to take their commentary past the obvious, so you’ll be the first to know about breaking news—and get the wittiest takes on it, all in a quick, funny snack.

WitStream is also the premiere go-to destination for live television and news events, from coverage of the Academy Awards to the Olympics to late-breaking political news. It’s a joke-centric second screen experience that enhances tedious hours of awards shows, sporting events, talking heads, and commercial breaks with a healthy dose of snark. WitStream partners with outlets like TVGuide.com, the Huffington Post, Jest.com, and 7-11 TV to spread our musings to a broad and eclectic vertical audience. WitStream has been nominated for Best Comedy App by Comedy Central and has appeared in numerous articles about comedy and the changing media landscape.

WITSTREAM WAS FOUNDED BY LISA COHEN, a seasoned media executive, who has worked in several facets of the media, advertising, and digital entertainment businesses at companies such as Nickelodeon, HarperCollins, and Simon & Schuster. Having worked on some of the world’s largest brands, Lisa started her career as a graphic designer and art director, where she honed her expertise in visual identity, communications and consumer marketing. Over the past decade, Lisa has garnered extensive experience in the entertainment and comedy worlds. She has worked as network television producer, producing comedic reality shows, and as a talent scout and producer of live comedy shows and festivals across the country. Lisa is a frequent speaker at comedy and digital media events such as South by Southwest, and has been regularly quoted in publications such as the New York Times and the Huffington Post. Most recently she was a judge for the Washington Post Humor Contest.

Lisa created WitStream as she saw an opportunity in the converging worlds of digital media and comedy. WitStream was created to cut through the endless sea of social media status updates and posts—to get audiences straight to the comedy. WitSream is a discovery engine to help showcase top tier comedy talent: get to know the people Lisa loves, and fall in love with them, too. Lisa earned her BA from Columbia University and lives in New York City with her husband, David Hillman, and their two children.

Seed round investors include Howard Lindzon (StockTwits), Social Leverage (Bit.ly, TweetDeck, Buddy Media), Shervin Pishevar (Menlo Ventures), and Leon Wagner (Golden Tree Asset Management).

What is WitStream?

WitStream is curated, up-to-the-minute comedy commentary: we take the funniest and sharpest political and entertainment news headlines from across the web and deliver it all to you on our app and via WitStream.com. With WitStream, you don’t have to wait for the news or late night comedy shows to get the funniest take on the day’s events: the jokes happen in real-time, not network time.

What’s an Aristocrat?

WitStream’s Aristocrats are a mix of comedy professionals and ordinary people who are just plain funny. For more information, click here.

So how is this different from Twitter?

WitStream’s unique design is user-friendly, easy to navigate, and sorted by topics. We do the finding and following so you don’t have to. At WitStream, we cut out the filler and focus solely on the best-written comedy. Everything on WitStream has been read through our filter, which ensures a unique—and hilarious—sensibility.

Can’t I just follow comedians on Twitter?

Sure. But maybe you don’t want to let that be your entire experience. You use Twitter to follow friends, your career, and your favorite brands. On WitStream, it’s just funny people saying funny things.

Is there any other way to get WitStream jokes?

So glad you asked! You can subscribe to our Daily WitPicks to get three topical jokes in your email inbox every morning.

For special television events, such as the Super Bowl, the Oscars, season premieres, political news, and more, WitStream also partners with sites like the Huffington Post and TVGuide.com, helping create a second screen experience. So you can watch TV while laughing along with the best live comedy commentary available.

I really love a joke I saw on your site. What should I do about it?

You’ve got several options. You can tweet the joke, put it on Facebook, or email it to a friend. And if you’re on Twitter, you should follow those writers you love, and give them props with a retweet or a star. If the joke makes you cringe, you can click the “Funny, but Wrong” button.

What does “Funny, but Wrong” mean?

If you laughed, but immediately felt guilty, it’s probably because the joke was “funny, but wrong.” WitStream is the first to admit that comedy is often offensive, but that doesn’t always mean it’s not clever or insightful. “Funny, but Wrong” gives you permission to chuckle and shake your head at the same time.

Who We Are


Founder and Chief Executive Officer Lisa Cohen is a freelance television producer with extensive experience in the comedy industry. Her credits include "Funniest Mom in America" 2 and 3, "She’s Got the Look" 1 and 2, and "High School Musical: Get in the Picture." Prior to her work in the comedy industry, Ms. Cohen spent 10 years as a graphic designer in the media business. Most importantly, Lisa is sick and tired of reading updates like "Lisa is sick," or "Lisa is tired." All too often, in a time of acute boredom, she looks to her smartphone for entertaining updates only to find the mundane and uninspired. She cursed the system for not giving her an endless stream of comedians’ updates, until she finally realized she had to build it herself.
