No viral videos. No interviews. No recycled breaking news.
No TV recaps. No ass-kissing. No bias. No mercy.
Just honest, unfiltered, long-form reviews
written by professional, knowledgeable comedy critics.
With an overriding mission to elevate the public perception of comedy to that of a legitimate art form, TheSpitTake.com was launched on February 6, 2012.
Unlike most comedy blogs, the site's goal is to serve as an honest, unbiased, taste-making entity that helps comedy criticism be taken as seriously as that of theater, film, music, food, even video games.
"Most thoughtful comedy reviews outside The New York Times." Art Levine, The Huffington Post and The Washington Monthly
