Funny or Die is bringing their special brand of star-studded comedy to the iPad with The Occasional, a bimonthly magazine which will feature completely original content. Don’t expect a traditional magazine though, as the FoD crew has freely admitted that they have no idea what they’re doing and thus plan to spice up every issue with some offbeat content.
So far what we’ve seen in the first issue is fairly standard magazine fare, but with a very humorous twist. There’s an interview with Ed Helms conducted by comedian Zack Galifianakis, a “Hippo Fact Page” of dubious scientific accuracy, and oh so much more. If you’re tired of “serious” magazines with “real” information then this just may be your solution.
You can download a free trial of The Occasional for free, but it only provides a small taste. A full issue is $3.99 and an annual subscription is $9.99. But in all honesty, can you put a price on laughter?
