Comedy as a Startup
"Here is the startup world in all its sleek hubris and ridiculous jargon, its mosaic of turtlenecks and button-downs, its insistent self-congratulatory self-congratulation. Created by and featuring Matt Ruby
alongside a cast of New York comics, Vooza
was something of a head-scratcher when it debuted in June 2012 — two years, mind you, before Silicon Valley
hit the airwaves. Neither Wired
ruled out the possibility it was a legit company with a sense of humor, and it’s difficult to blame them; like Colbert Report
-era Stephen Colbert, Vooza
masquerades as the very thing it lampoons."
