The Social Media, Digital Marketing and Creative Agency powered by Comedy Writers and Copywriters

Don't just hire a Comedy Writer - hire a whole hive-mind

Whether you’re looking for short-form posts, your next big idea, a punched-up script, or you want to embed the White Label team into your own process so that you can have a hive-mind of Comedy Writers living in your back pocket ready to be deployed at a moment’s notice: we’ve got the perfect package for you.

Comedy Content that supercharges engagement and reach on social – without putting your brand’s reputation on the line.

TV’s Best Comedy Writers Crafting Content Your Audience Will Go Crazy* For

* Figuratively, not clinically

I’m Adam Hunt – a TV Producer turned Copywriter who loves it when brands make us laugh, and hates how rarely that happens.

There’s an art to writing jokes that work for brands – and a science that makes sure the end result is on-brand, on-message and won’t get you cancelled.

I brought together TV’s best comedy writers* as the White Label Comedy Hive-Mind, to help brands of all shapes and sizes entertain, engage and sell.**

* (not as hard as it sounds – they were all in the same branch of Starbucks complaining about the WiFi).

** I keep them in a small bucket on my coffee table, occasionally feeding them episodes of Cheers.

“Adam I think I’m in love with you and your team! Amazing work.”

When not helping your brand entertain, engage and sell - our writers also craft jokes for these award-winning shows.

They’ve crafted jokes for Graham Norton, Sue Perkins, Jon Richardson, Al Murray, Judy Murray, Dermot O’Leary and even Professor Stephen Hawking. Now they’re here to help you and your brand win hearts and minds (and Likes and Shares) on social.

your BEST defence against the crushing defeat of the algorithms? A sense of humour

On FB, the average post is shown to just 5.5% of your audience. On Twitter, only 3.6% of your followers see the average tweet. You’re paying for content that 95% of your audience will never even see. (Now you know how the Specsavers marketing team feels). *

For those of you outside the UK, Specsavers is a brand of opticians. Sure – we could’ve just said “an opticians” to make sure you all got the joke – but then we wouldn’t have been able to hang out together down here by this asterisk.

When your content gets more engagements (reactions, likes, shares, comments) it gets rewarded – by being shown to more and more people.

If twice as many people see your posts each day – that’s twice as many potential customers, clients, or prospects given a chance to think about you and how you can change their world (and you can order twice as many oysters to go with your celebratory champagne).

Comedy content gets your audience talking – well, laughing AND talking – and that means – the Holy Grail – comments!

Discussion of the topic, people sharing their own stories, sharing their own jokes, sharing inappropriate pictures (there’s always one) and even people just commenting to tell you how much they loved that post – whatever their reason for responding – every comment counts.*

Plus, jokes work best – and travel further – when they’re based around a hidden truth. And thanks to the nature of branded comedy, that truth is always going to be one your audience wholeheartedly agrees with – which leads to Likes and Shares. Your audience telling the world that you’re funny, and you’re right.

* (And FYI – if your target market is Transylvania, every count will comment).

Comedy Content directly drives engagement, which in turn increases Organic Reach, and that can mean exponentially increased ROI.

And that’s before we even begin to dig into the psychology of why comedy content is so effective in and of itself as a marketing material.

“Adam is a top-class producer and creative. I’ve worked with him more times than I can remember, and it’s always a pleasure. White Label Comedy is fantastic at generating unique, clever and most importantly – funny – content that is filling a real gap in the market.”

Same brand, same audience, same topic, same day.

One of these posts was crafted by a hive-mind of TV's best comedy writers - can you guess which one?

Our client was an Independent Living Community determined to engage their audience, but struggling to get any kind of reaction – even with topics they knew their ideal customer cared deeply about.

We crafted content that we knew would make their audience laugh – which sent engagement through the roof. Same brand, same audience, same topic, same day – tonnes more engagement.

Disclaimer: Success on social depends on many different factors – so while the results in our case studies do demonstrate previous successes that we’re really proud of, they do not constitute any kind of guarantee in terms of the specific results you can expect. Every brand, brand message and audience is different.

“Adam and the team at White Label Comedy did a wonderful job. They were easy to work with, quick to respond to our queries, and most importantly… they came up with funny and AMAZING content for us. Exactly what we needed. Would highly recommend them!”

The psychology of comedy

And why it's game-changing for brands on social

Comedy gets your audience talking

So many brands forget the social in social media. Comedy doesn’t just entertain and engage – when done right, it drives conversation too.

Inside every joke is a “hidden truth*” – one that deserves discussion, prompts us to share our own truths, and makes us want to tell you, and the world, that we agree.

* Like the Da Vinci Code, but funny on purpose.

Comedy sells without selling

People don’t want to buy from faceless brands waving coupons, vouchers and deals. They want to buy from brands with personality. Brands they feel an affinity to. A connection with.

Comedy content that’s tailored to your audience builds that connection, and keeps your brand front of mind –  so that when the time comes for them to enter the consideration phase, they’ve already sold themselves on you and your offer.

A good sense of humour proves you're "one of us"

Good marketing builds a human connection with an audience. It shows them that their world is your world. It demonstrates that we’re all in this together. And that’s important now, more than ever.

These aren’t just jokes – they’re proof that you understand our world, and what we’re going through right now.  It’s content like this that makes us welcome you into our lives, and – more importantly – our social feeds

Jokes turn followers into influencers

When we – as a brand – first share the joke, we’re telling a story about ourselves. But when our audience is motivated to share that story – because they found it funny – it becomes a story that they’re telling the world on our behalf.

A good joke doesn’t just entertain and engage – it turns every single one of your followers into an influencer, who will happily push your agenda free of charge.

“What can I say other than you did a brilliant job here. It was great getting a fresh perspective on the AromaSticks! We love all the ideas that you and the team came up with and we’re hard pressed to pick a favourite.”

"Isn't comedy a bit risky for brands?!"

Yes - but only if you don't know what you're doing

The worst mistake any brand can make is to simply start trying to “be funny” on social – those who do can quickly find themselves cancelled quicker than J.K. Rowling can tap out an open letter.

Comedy 101: Every joke has two halves

If you get both ingredients from a safe source, you'll write a safe joke

Break down any joke – and assuming it actually made you laugh, here’s what it is:

Two “things” (ideas / concepts / words / phrases) that shouldn’t fit together, but that have been made to fit together, with the help of a perfectly placed surprise twist. 

That’s literally all a joke is.

If you make sure both of those “things” are drawn from the world of your brand, and the relatable experiences universal across your audience, it’s hard to go wrong.

Add in an extra sense-check phase that double checks that any opinions expressed by a joke are ones that your audience agree with – and you’re more likely to offend by re-posting that same boring blog for the 18th time than you are by tweeting a fresh, funny, brand-relevant joke.

That's why we use...

The White Label Comedy BSOH (Brand Sense of Humour) Breakdown Matrix

We needed a system for audience research that arms our writers with the ingredients they need to write the right kind of jokes, and helps make sure they’re not distracted by the lure of the wrong ones.

That’s why we developed the BSOH (Brand Sense of Humour) Breakdown Matrix.

It’s the way we break down everything there is to know about a brand, their products, features and benefits, the audience, their problems, the brand’s solutions, related topics, the audience’s universal beliefs, relatable truths and pop culture interests – so we’ve got easy access to all the knowledge we need to get on with the fun part: writing jokes that entertain, engage and sell.

We Build Your Team

We’ll then select a crack team of comedy writers whose experience, perspective and demographic makes them perfectly placed to generate content that engages and entertains your audience – and they get to work, marshalled by one of our Lead Writers.

We Get To Work

We run every project in four phases.

Phase One is all about getting to know your audience. We gather intelligence and learn as much as we can about them: What are their beliefs and their motivations? What are their struggles and their pain points? What else is going on in their world right now?

Phase Two is all about picking the right topics. We generate a huge list of things your brand could talk about — these all relate to what we know about your audience and your brand’s values.

Phase Three is where the real magic happens. Over the course of a few days, our writers will between them generate hundreds of jokes and funny post ideas – each laser-focused on your audience, and their world.

You’ll only ever see the best 10-20% of this material.

Phase Four – our Lead Writer will then pick the very best pieces of content – and polish them, until they’re sure every single word is pulling its weight, and every single post has been optimised for maximum impact. 

Your Content Arrives

As standard, our content is text-only – however we can also include a free (unedited) Adobe Stock image chosen to match each post, if requested. 

For an additional fee, we can also create custom photoshops, and other relevant artwork – to enable you to make the most of each and every joke. We also offer full-service video production on request.

Either on, or before, our agreed delivery date – you’ll receive the copy for each and every post in a PDF, and a link to any additional assets sent via WeTransfer.
