The Laffster Mission

Laffster takes the massive, scattered world of humorous content online and drives personalization and discovery around it like never before. Powering both its own web and mobile apps as well as discovery on third-party platforms, Laffster's technology was built in conjunction with a wide variety of researchers and scholars in humor, including neuroscientists and psychologists at schools like Dartmouth College and the University of Colorado, as well as the Cartoon Editor at The New Yorker, Bob Mankoff.

Headquartered in Venice, CA, Laffster is a graduate of MuckerLab. Seed investors include Greylock Partners (Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.), Adam Nash (LinkedIn), Chris Williams (Maker Studios) and Howard Lindzon (StockTwits) as well as talent agencies and management companies like Paradigm (Neil Patrick Harris, Sharon Stone, etc.) and Parallel (Jeff Foxworthy, Lisa Lampanelli).

Our Products

Our app, Mock the Vote, delivers humorous up-to-the-minute takes on political news, including content and curation from partners like the POLIPOP! Network at Maker Studios—studio for Bad Lip Reading and others—and The New Yorker's Cartoon Editor as well as from satirical sources such as Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert and The Onion.

Our Team

We have an extremely talented team with experience in advertising and engineering at companies like Google, Warner Brothers and CollegeHumor.
