Allow Us To Reintoduce Ourselves. Our Name is Much. Much To The Dot Com!
We are so stoked to finally reveal the new, revamped Much.com, with an updated sleek design, new content, and much cleaner navigation. Our new Feed and Much Hits will keep you updated on everything that’s new in pop culture, with our own special take. Plus, we are still your #1 destination for your favourite Much shows like Comedy Bang Bang!, Workaholics, Broad City and more. If we dare say, this is a site both Jesse Eisenberg AND Mark Zuckerberg would be impressed by.
With the new site comes the launch of what we are very proud to call Much Digital Studios. Our new era of the VJ so to speak. We are teaming up with twelve of your current and soon-to-be favourite YouTubers to produce exciting new content that will not only entertain you, but teach you all sorts of important lessons. When it is not appropriate to wear dark lipstick? What jokes can I break out on a first date? How do I make my version of “Fancy” at the very least listenable at karaoke? This gang is here to help.
