What's going on Laugh Out Loud fans? I am Ali Rizvi Badshah, the new host for Laugh Out Loud on CBC Radio. How do you like the new site? Trust me, I worked long and hard on this thing (and by me, I mean the web guys), so I hope you like it.
Just want to give you a brief tour around the website. When you first get to the page, you'll see 3 of our most popular videos featured on our site. Watch each clip, then vote on which clip you found the funniest. One winner each week will have their clip featured on my radio show. Then you can tell all your friends that you discovered a new comedian.
If you're an aspiring comedian, upload your material! Getting noticed just got easier. Upload either your audio or video clips, and once it's up, send the link to all your friends and family. The more popular the clip gets, the better chance you have of getting your clip featured on the show.
That's not all though. We have webisodes
you can listen to on the go or at your desk. There's a Laugh of the Day
page with a short joke that is updated daily. We also have a Get Lucky Contest
, where you can answer a simple question and get CBC swag. And who doesn't love swag? You better.
So that's the site in a nutshell. Or rather, a paragraph... 4 paragraphs to be exact. I have my blog on there as well, so you can keep track of me while I'm on the road or in the studio. I'll be posting backstage videos, and photos that you perhaps shouldn't see. Like this one
