About

HumorOutcasts.com is THE place to take a humor break. Founded by Donna Cavanagh, it is the result of a brainstorming session between several humor writers who longed for a site where humor could thrive without fear of being censored as it was on many of the bigger internet blogging sites. On many occasions, Donna and other humorists felt like outcasts in the internet writing world watching their work get flagged or removed when editors felt uncomfortable with content.  With the technical help of her engineer husband, Donna was able to create HUMOROUTCASTS.com or HO a site that encourages writers  to push the envelope and spread their creative wings.  On HO, you will find humorists, stand-up comics, entertainers, cartoonists, TV writers/producers, screenwriters and some  writers of serious subject matter — all who believe in the power of laughter.  We hope you take your time and read the work of the writers here who cover a wide variety of topics.  The work posted ranges from G-rated material to material that might just make you blush.  There is something for everyone and there is fresh content daily.

 

We are serious about humor. According to the Pew Research Center, in their December 2011 study: “On any given day, 53% of all the young adults ages 18-29 go online for no particular reason except to have fun or to pass the time.” While this is the largest group who report that they go on-line to have “fun or just pass time,” 58% of all adults show substantial increases in this kind of internet use since 2001. HumorOutcasts.com is here to help people find fresh, quality humor everyday.
