Funny Or Die launched its digital humor magazine, The Occasional, in the spring of 2012, but they made some major changes to it today. The Occasional is now a free, regularly-updated website instead of being a sporadic iOS magazine that charges a fee. Here’s an excerpt from today’s announcement about the future of The Occasional:
Our goal is to try to raise bar for internet comedy with high-brow humor. This site will be a curated, lean-back experience that’s not afraid to experiment. Not every written piece of comedy on the internet needs to be in list form. Not everything needs to be a quiz. No pandering. No cheap laughs.
