History of WeMakeTheFunny.com
Adam Hamway created WeMakeTheFunny.com in 2005 as a place for his friends to post their funny masterpieces. Most of the contributors came from the sketch comedy troupe, Chocolate Cake City NY which began in 2006 after comedian Rob Asaro returned to New York… missing his former group of the same name in Boston. Rob teamed up with Adam Hamway of SiriusXM Radio Inc. who also missed his sketch comedy group: TNL. Together the two created a group that would bring together multiple forms of comedy and media to inspire unique work.
Chocolate Cake City worked with a variety of talent, hosting live weekly shows and creating widely viewed videos for WeMakeTheFunny.com. Their videos have been played on MTV and their audio comedy parodies have been broadcast on local and national radio stations such as Z100, 77WABC, WFAN, SIRIUS XM Radio, 630KHOW, etc. (Most notably their audio parody “Giants Won The Super Bowl” gave Chocolate Cake City national recognition). Chocolate Cake City has performed at various venues such as CAROLINES, COMIX, THE P.I.T., NATIONAL COMEDY THEATER, STAND-UP NEW YORK, BROADWAY COMEDY CLUB, ETC They’ve also participated in festivals in New York, Chicago and Montreal.
In 2014, Adam Hamway decided to WeMakeTheFunny.com should open the doors to accept funny videos, articles, podcasts, etc from comedians, no matter where they were in their careers. This is exactly what WeMakeTheFunny is all about. Sharing funny content to make the world a better place…one laugh at a time.
