Zoo42 Productions is a offering new service called Funnybone that allows you to download comedy content straight to your mobile phone. The idea is that writers and comedians, such as Tim Vine (The Sketch Show), Norman Lovett (Holly from Red Dwarf) and the writers from Have I Got News For You and the Graham Norton Show, write up-to-the-minute topical comedy that’s then available to download from the Funnybone WAP site. The video clips will feature real comedians as well as the first animated WAP comedian. Each clip should take around 30 seconds to download. To subscribe to the service you’ll need to text ‘Go Comedy’ to 87121 at a cost of £1.50. For this price, those with video phones will get 24 hours’ access to all content; colour picture-capable phones will get access to all non-video content for seven days; while those with text-only phones can access all text-based content for 14 days.
