About Us

A collective of writers and photoshop artists founded The Poke in July 2010. Championing new comedy talent, it is the fastest growing humour site in the UK with over 100,000 unique users per month and approaching 1 Million page impressions.

The Poke is a satirical and topical news source, aiming to deliver an antidote to the daily grind. With the discovery of new British comedy talent firmly at its core, we publish photoshop-led topical articles that cover UK politics, world news, tv arts and culture, science and technology, celebrity and sport.

We are a satire news site – this means that all the stories are for entertainment, made up and are not true.

In addition to creating original material The Poke also uncovers the very best new pictures, video and links from the internet and has become the No.1 destination for those people who want to see what funny stuff is out there before it goes mainstream.
