 Sarah:A tiger broke into the office!

Jeff: Well that doesn't make any sense.


Jeff: The tiger's eating me!

College-Humor's Hardly Working is an online series of shorts taking place in the office from which the College-Humor website is run. The series is written by and stars the CH staff. The first shorts were ten-second-long, one-joke bits shot with a cam-corder for fun, but as their popularity grew they expanded into full sketches several minutes long and shot with multiple professional cameras.

Most of the shorts take place in the context of supposed everyday life working at the website. The most prominent subseries within Hardly Working is Jake and Amir, a Boke and Tsukkomi Routine between the two titular characters.

Tropes used in Hardly Working include:
  • Acting for Two: Or three or four. Several cast members play multiple characters, often with little more than a wig as a distinction. Streeter Seidel and Josh Ruben are the main examples
  • Added Alliterative Appeal:

 Pat: I made you this balloon animal.

Streeter: I made you this bassoon animal.

Pat: I made you this doubloon animal.

Dan: No more "words ending in -oon" animals!

(Streeter drops a spoon animal)

 Dan: I’m going to the conference room

Sam: You’ll never guess what they're doing there

Dan: Oh, let me guess. They’re all topless, reenacting the final, climatic scene to A Few Good Men.

*Cut to conference room*


 Pat: I will give you that rice krispie treat I ate yesterday.

Dan: I don't know, didn't you eat that yesterday?

(Pat spits out a whole rice krispie treat)

Dan: No Thanks.
