Australian Entrepreneur Joins The Big Boys Of Comedy With New Start-up Website

BRISBANE, Australia, Nov. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Amateur, scripted comedy has yet to find a comfortable home on the web. Sites that feature professional comedy content such as "College Humor" and "Funny or Die" cast a large shadow over the online comedy landscape. A newly launched site, www.skittell.com, hopes to shake things up, making a space for new ideas and voices. Skittell.com is a video upload site where amateur comedians can showcase their talents.

Site founder and amateur comedian Rob Woodland believes that unheralded, fledgling funny people have a wealth of great ideas, daring and spontaneity to offer the online community. He hopes these funny people will provide a much-needed injection of fun to comedy on the web. As a free site, Skittell.com has literally no barriers to entry.

As the name suggests, Skittell.com specializes in "skits" - comedy sketches that run between 1 and 3 minutes. Recording and uploading a comedy skit is far easier than many people think. Today's high-definition video cameras are small and lightweight, but offer picture quality that far exceeds their clunky predecessors. Video editing software is more user-friendly than ever. The Skittell.com website includes an easy-to-read checklist for producing and uploading a skit. Registration for an account is free and carries no obligation.

Visitors to Skittell.com will no doubt find hidden gems, as well as some sketches that may miss the mark. Either way, the site will offer material that can't be found anywhere else. Skittell.com has no plans to re-publish content from other sites. Instead, the site's content will be entirely original and never before seen.

As a community-driven site, Skittell.com will provide a meeting place for like-minded funny people from every corner of the globe. Users will have the opportunity to share ideas and techniques, as well as simply draw inspiration from the creativity of others. In the words of Woodland, Skittell.com is a site created "by amateurs - for amateurs."
