One-Liners

We accept jokes for our weekly animated sports show, "Short Sports." These are one-liners similar in style to SNL's Weekend Update and are based on timely events in the world of sports. Examples of past submissions:

The NFL is reportedly seeking to dismiss a lawsuit filed by former Raiders head coach Jon Gruden, who was let go after an email leak showed him using sexist, racist, and homophobic language, or what Joss Whedon calls “just another day at the office.”

Hulk Hogan is in hot water this week after insinuating the COVID-19 vaccine is responsible for the recent death of Betty White, marking the first time in his career that Hogan has been anti-needle in the arm.

 

Whether you're a packet-submitting-Second City-grad looking for their next big break or just somebody who stumbled upon this page, if you send us something funny and unique, we'll do our best to make it work.

Our only other stipulation is that it HAS TO BE ABOUT SPORTS.

Also - don't be an asshole. It's okay to poke fun and to use vulgarity to make an over-arching point, but if that needs further explanation, chances are you're on the wrong website.

 


WE CAN PAY CONTRIBUTORS!

Thanks to our awesome fan base and little merch shop, we are now fully funded for 2022. Submit for more details.


Note - payment is for long form submissions ONLY, we are not currently paying for Short Sports submissions.
