If a comedy show and a hackathon had a baby,  it would be Comedy Hack Day.

Comedy Hack Day (CHD) started in 2012 with the goal of bringing technology-embracing comedians and comedy-loving developers together into one collaborative, fun environment. Created by Cultivated Wit, a company started by a few folks from The Onion, CHD has grown from its first day-long event in NY to several weekend-long events in LA, San Francisco and at MIT.

CHD DC is the open source version of Comedy Hack Day. For a second year in a row, we’re gathering comedians, designers, and developers to build hilarious tech products—apps, sites, search engines, etc. At the end of it all, the finalists will demo their ideas in a full- fledged comedy show complete with audience members and guest judges. It’s loads of fun and we want you to be part of it.

More shows are popping up all over - check out Vancouver too!
