Funny Or Die is a comedy video website that combines user generated content with original, exclusive content. The site is a place where celebrities, established and up-and-coming comedians and regular users can all put up stuff they think is funny. At the same time, the site hopes to eliminate all the junk that people have to pick through to find videos. That means around here you get to vote on what videos are funny and what videos deserve to die.

Funny Or Die was created by the guys at Gary Sanchez Productions (Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Chris Henchy) and a bunch of Silicon Valley dudes and ladies who drive Hondas and watch old episodes of Babylon Five. The company also owns and operates other video sites – Shred or Die (Action Sports videos), East Drink or Die (Food videos), PWN or Die (Video Gaming) and Morra de Rir (Brazilian videos).
