Comedy Video Site, MyDamnChannel Launches Today And Has Funding
Rob Barnett, a former MTV executive recently launched MyDamnChannel.com, a video content comedy channel that appears to be competing against FunnyOrDie.com. They even have a parody of one of the videos that made FunnyOrDie.com popular, The Landlord. The parody is available at:
MyDamnChannel has a revenue model in which advertising profits from content owners will be split 50-50 stated Barnett. Okapi Venture Capital is providing funding to help get MyDamnChannel off the ground. Barnett has also signed Andy Milonakis, an actor that has his own show on MTV called The Andy Milonakis Show.
Harry Shearer, a voice actor of The Simpsons is also providing content. Shearer plays the voices of Mr. Burns, Smithers, Ned Flanders, Principle Seymour Skinner, etc. on The Simpsons. Shearer will be providing pop culture spoofs and will impersonate President George Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney in some of his skits.
“There’s a slew of sites with hundreds of thousands of videos that are impossible to find,” stated Barnett. “We’re taking a very different approach than all the YouTube imitators.”
