Sarah Silverman, Michael Cera, Tim & Eric And Reggie Watts Launch New YouTube Channel

Well here’s an interesting development from the world of comedy: Sarah Silverman, Michael Cera, Tim Heidecker, Eric Wareheim, and Reggie Watts have joined forces to launch their own YouTube channel called JASH. (No, I have no idea what it stands for.) From the press release we received this morning…

JASH gives comedians and artists a platform to create and control their own digital content and fully share in the revenues. JASH is already attracting top-tier talent by providing them with the financing, production resources, editing facilities and personnel to create quality online videos. All collaborating partners will be given complete autonomy to make short films, sketches, series, one-offs, talk-shows, animation and music videos. The goal of JASH is to gather the most distinct and brightest talent to form a comedy artists’ collective.

The group is out and about doing publicity for the launch. Here’s a Reddit AMA they did yesterday as well as a Comedy Bang Bang podcast they all sat down for. Follow them on Twitter here.
