Comedy site JibJab has raised $7.5 million in Series C funding from investors including Overbrook Entertainment and Sony Pictures, Jason Kincaid at TechCrunch reported. Andy interviewed JibJab CEO Greg Spiridellis at the TimeWarner Politics ’08 Summit in October about politics and comedy on the web, and I republished the interview today.
We previously interviewed JibJab about their “Starring You” ecards and videos, which allow users to post their faces into funny animations. Over the holidays, the ElfYourself videos were a big hit. The Starring You product has proved JibJab can do more than make political parodies like This Land, and make money to boot.
