imageViewer-voting comedy site FunnyOrDie is launching a UK-facing outpost later today, with a London production HQ and a partnership with UK TV show maker Hat Trick. BBC comedian James Serafinowicz will head a London team along with other writers and directors of UK TV series; their office will actually be at the headquarters of Father Ted maker Hat Trick, which will act as a talent scout and the site’s sole production partner and will, no doubt, be keen to cream off the funniest discoveries for television proper.

This launch also comes with a clip selection from Little Britain USA, an American spinoff of the over-exposed series from David Walliams and Matt Lucas – HBO is airing that series from Sunday and is also a minority shareholder in FunnyOrDie. So the deal is as much about breaking them over there as breaking FunnyOrDie over here. Co-founder Chris Henchy is pictured here at our EconSM conference in LA in April.
