Elizabeth Banks Launches Digital Comedy Platform for Women

“Here at WhoHaha, our motto is: If men can do it, they probably learned it from a woman,” says the actress

Elizabeth Banks has launched her female-driven digital comedy platform, WhoHaha, the actress announced on Monday.

“WhoHahaDotCom is finally here,” Banks tweeted. “#MakeYourOwnDamnSandwich AND eat it too! You know you want to!”

Cofounded by Banks, WhoHaha seeks to surface material from funny women, giving female creators the opportunity to “distribute their content to a wider audience and a place for users to spend hours laughing until they pee.”

“After years of taking 90 percent of lead comedy roles and being forced to appear nightly on stand up stages around the globe, we are here to relieve you of your obligations,” she said in a video announcement, addressing men. “Bow out, bitches. Here at WhoHaha, our motto is: If men can do it, they probably learned it from a woman. Funny women have been keeping this planet alive for centuries.”

Banks and her management company Digital Media Management will scour the web for funny women. The company also helped create Ashley Tisdale‘s lifestyle site and Felicity Huffman‘s “What the Flicka.”
