Earwolf announces partnership with Funny or Die

Funny or Die is getting into the comedy podcasting business, and they’ve picked one of their most popular video producers to help them do it.

Earwolf broke the news of its deal with FoD tonight.

As of September 2011, Earwolf will become the exclusive sole provider and producer of Funny or Die podcasts, with new shows added to the existing comedy podcast network and available via iTunes, Earwolf.com and funnyordie.com. In the agreement, FoD also will license Earwolf’s existing back catalogue and offer them on their site.

From Earwolf:

“We‚Äôre pumped to have a podcast partner-in-crime and one with such a large and loyal following. We‚Äôre doubly pumped to bring more great comedy from today‚Äôs best comedic minds to the 11-million/month Funny Or Die visitors. We‚Äôre triply pumped to for Earwolf fans to get more of what they love, too.”

As referenced up top, this partnership is not exactly surprising.

Earwolf was co-created by Scott Aukerman, host of the popular live show and podcast, Comedy Bang Bang (formerly Comedy Death-Ray), and producer of Funny or Die’s “Between Two Ferns” series with Zach Galifianakis, which enjoys some of the most viewed videos of all time on the site.
