Comedy Video Site National Banana Raises $1 Million

Not sure how, not sure why, but they’re still raking it in: National Banana, a Hollywood-based start-up that runs comedy videos, has secured $1 million in funding from US Venture Partners, VentureBeat reports. The site runs short-form spoofs that are being produced by Jerry Zucker, one of the producers behind the movie parody series Airplane and Naked Gun. At the moment, the site is highlighting an episodic video series called Sands of Passion, which is billed as an Al Qaeda-parody soap opera.
