    Not sure if anyone really followed them, but CH was basically the last "big" online sketch comedy platforms after FunnyOrDie and Cracked got hit with the layoff stick a little while ago. It seems like the scope for making money being funny on the internet is basically dead now unless you want to go the independent influencer route. The production values involved seem prohibitively high to even manage on YouTube.
