Comedy Central

There are certain shows such as "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart" and "South Park," that lend themselves beautifully to online explorations. Not only are their target auds tech-savvy, but the humorous content can be easily manipulated and creatively expanded to fit the demands of a Web site. So not surprisingly, Comedy Central's creatives have come up with an entity that's hip, funny and packed with mindless games and tidbits that should keep the cabler's core fans chuckling along as they navigate its different sections.

There are certain shows such as “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart” and “South Park,” that lend themselves beautifully to online explorations. Not only are their target auds tech-savvy, but the humorous content can be easily manipulated and creatively expanded to fit the demands of a Web site.

So not surprisingly, Comedy Central’s creatives have come up with an entity that’s hip, funny and packed with mindless games and tidbits that should keep the cabler’s core fans chuckling along as they navigate its different sections.

Beyond the prerequisite TV schedule and audio/video downloads of fave shows, the site deserves a special pat on the back for maximizing the potential of characters and storylines introduced on the cabler. Standouts include “Daily Show’s” wicked newsletter, which includes topical jokes that didn’t make it on air, and “Strangers With Candy’s” the Flatpoint High Donkey Trouser student paper, featuring words of wisdom from Principal Blackman’s Blackboard and a rude advice column by Jerri Blank (Amy Sedaris’ lead character).

ComedyCentral.com also boasts a healthy archive of standup comedy performances from the cabler’s “Premium Blend” showcase, as well as tried-and-true areas dedicated to classics such as “Duckman,” “Saturday Night Live” and the foul-mouthed kids of “South Park.” Browsers looking for a quick laugh can also revisit favorite sketches from “The Kids in the Hall” and watch the bad Canuck boys talk about their live show, or play a very silly virtual shopping game with “Absolutely Fabulous'” Patsy or Edina.

So, the site’s color scheme is a bit garish, and too much clutter and copy swims around on each page, but hey, how can you fault a site that has a Magic Eyeball with the most profound answers to life’s nagging questions?
