London – Comedy website Funny
or Die is shuttering its U.K.
operations, citing financial difficulties, PaidContent reported.
The site, a
partnership with U.K. TV producer Hat Trick Productions, had been creating
original Web programming for nearly two years.
"Following an assessment of
the last 18 months, during which time Funny Or Die UK has seen numerous visitors
to its site who have in turn gone into the American site, the decision has been
made to merge the UK
site and content into the American Funny Or Die website," Hat Trick told
