Venture capitalists do some of the wackiest things. (OK, not really). But now, thanks to venture capitalist Brad Feld, there’s a new comedy Web site devoted to the wacky and silly behavior of this privileged investment class.
Feld has started a new comedy site called I Can Has VC, hosted on Cheezburger. There you will see a spoof of the TV show “ER” called “VC ER” where a group of doctors deal with critical issues like “cash burn” and “insider selling.” There’s also a few classic Cheezburger “kitteh” photos making fun of VCs.
I wrote about the new Cheezburger Sites concept last month, pointing out that it allows any person to create a humor-oriented Web page with their own personalized content.
For Feld — who invested in Cheezburger’s $30 million round earlier this year — that happens to be a new class of comedy. Call it VC humor.
Foundry Group co-founder Feld — who just released the new book “Venture Deals: Be Smarter Than Your Venture Capitalist and Lawyer” — isn’t afraid to poke fun at himself or the industry. And he’s looking for help in building out the channel, asking readers to send him videos and photos of “VCs doing stupid things, or stupid things masquerading as VCs.”
And just in case you forgot. Feld and the Foundry team were the stars of the hilarious rap video “I’m a VC.”
