If you're looking for good laughs mixed with experimental comedy on demand, then YouTube's new comedy channel JASH may be just what you're seeking.
The channel features web videos from comics Sarah Silverman, Michael Cera, Tim Heidecker, Reggie Watts and Eric Wareheim.
YouTube's parent company Google approached the group of comedians with the opportunity to produce funny web material with the freedom to express themselves however they would like.

According to JASH.com, "JASH is the first fully realized network to offer all its comedic partners complete creative autonomy. At Jash we always strive to offer a variety of content with a unique voice: boundaries will be pushed, and disorientation is sure to ensue."
"We each have pages within JASH and we each can curate those pages," Silverman explained. "This is what we think is funny. It may not be your cup of tea, but there's no testing involved, there's no second-guessing of what a 14-year-old boy would like. It's just a place to do stuff and fail or not fail."
The new channel, which debuted on Sunday at SXSW Interactive, promises to be a "bull***t-free experience," added Wareheim.
The comics are currently working on projects to premiere on the channel: Silverman will premiere a "French film-noir trailer" and Cera has a 25-minute short film while Wareheim says he'll exposed some of the "bizarre" things he does for recreation. "I've got a lot of personal, bizarre stuff that I do in my home and my bedroom, and I'm going to put it out on YouTube through JASH.com," he says in the channel's first video.
Working behind the scenes are "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" co-executive producer Douglas De Luca and Daniel Kellison, a former Kimmel executive producer and creator of shows including "Crank Yankers" and "The Man Show."
