We’re Back and We Need Your Help!

At long last The Annual is back from their three week hiatus. We may have missed the chance to cover events where comedy was most needed: The RNC, The DNC, and the release of Suicide Squad but our stone cold pack of weirdos are back for good… But there’s a catch!

Over the past three weeks we have been hard at work developing a new program that we lovingly call “Writer Compensation” and we need your help to make it a reality!  Starting today we launch our Annual Patreon. So if you’ve ever found yourself laughing or merely chuckling at the content on our site, we sincerely hope you’ll lend a hand.

We’ve got some great rewards lined up and if you pledge before August 22nd, we’ll throw in a free sticker at any level of support. So head over to so we finally get our writers something nice.

Editor’s Note

Hey folks,

Posts may be a little sporadic over the next two weeks. Things at The Annual have ranged from a 1-4 person job and lately it’s been fallen mostly on me. I need to take a little time to hone in on some side projects that need definite tending before the summer’s over and some projects that will eventually be produced under The Annual. To give these projects the attention they deserve, we won’t be posting much over the next two weeks, returning to our regular schedule on August 1st!

“But Kevin, what about the RNC/DNC?” Listen, I feel you, there couldn’t be a more important time for comedians to call attention to Melania Trump. We’ll likely chime in from time to time, but I can’t guarantee daily posts, at least not anything written by me. That said, if the spirit moves you and you feel compelled to write something and perhaps become a contributor to this fair humor-magazine-turned-website, send your material to with the word SUBMISSION somewhere in the subject line and we’ll get back to you with all the info you need.

Thanks for putting up with us,
Kevin Cole


We will be extending the hiatus for one extra week, seems that some of the things planned for this time off are taking longer than expected, we will return on August 8th.
