New range of funny cards by Modern Toss

25 September, 2017 0 comments Leave a comment

Modern Toss have released a new range of cards taken from their adult colouring books, packed full of their trademark satirical humour.

Modern Toss is cult comic created by Jon Link and Mick Bunnage. Their first comic was published over ten years ago and since then about ten have been produced. The early ones are now highly collectable, especially the second one with its free sample of Royal hair! The humour is satirical, dry, often rude and offensive, but also extremely funny. They pay particular attention to the mundane aspects of life such as work. Their work regularly appears in Private Eye, The Guardian and the Sunday Times magazine.

They have also released several books. 'A Decade in the Shithouse' is a book celebrating their ten year anniversary and is a retrospective of their work so far. They also published a series of colouring books, very much for adults, including 'The Working Day', 'Mindless Violence' and 'The Weekend'. It is these books that have inspired the latest range of greeting cards. The range is entitled 'Coloured in Cards' mainly because the cartoons have already been coloured in - so you don't have too!

Some of our favourites for this new range are the ones taken from 'The Working Day'. We love this one demonstrating a great way to look like you are still in the office somewhere even if you have gone home after lunch . . .

 

Here is another way to look busy, even when you are not.

 

Meetings at work have long been a favourite topic for Modern Toss and their new range is no exception. Here we see an employee revealing how to behave during an office meeting - essentially bide your time, try and work out what's going on and then try to make some sort of a relevant comment.

There is also some cards taken from 'The Weekend' with a satirical view of the modern way that people relax after the working week. 

Take a look at our complete Modern Toss card range - beware some foul language!

 

 

 

 

This year's funny Christmas cards by Drama Queen

19 September, 2017 0 comments Leave a comment

Drama Queen releases a new range of funny Christmas cards every year. Here we take a look at this year's selection.

Drama Queen is a range of cards featuring funny captions to original, old theatrical photographs. The captions are written by the very talented comedian / writer / actor Alex Lowe, also known as 'Barry from Watford' who will be familiar to listeners of Radio 2's Steve Wright show.

Each Christmas, the publisher of the Drama Queen range release new designs. There are some truly hilarious cards this year.

We love this one showing a man carrying a large bowl of brussel sprouts to the dining table, wrestling with his conscience whether to deliver them safely or whether to 'accidentally' drop them on the floor!

 

Another humorous caption, perfectly matched to the photograph, shows a pair of ladies acknowledging that they have plenty of alcohol but they are racking their brains trying to remember if they bought anything resembling a turkey!

 

This card features a family game of Charades showing a tense atmosphere after a lady has tried to mime the film 'Free Willy' with some embarrassing results.

 

We also love this card showing a somewhat shocked Santa who had entered a woman's bedroom to fill her stocking and found her leg to be still in the stocking!

These are just a few of the Drama Queen Christmas cards. The Christmas designs are given some extra seasonal sparkle with the addition of some coloured glitter.

New Off the Leash and On the Prowl cards

23 August, 2017 0 comments Leave a comment

We welcome some new designs from the Off the Leash and On the Prowl range, by cartoonist Rupert Fawcett

Rupert Fawcett is a very talented cartoonist who rose to fame when he created his Fred character. London born and raised, he dropped out of Art School back in 1977 and formed a punk band. He then trained to become a councillor. One day, in 1989, he started doodling, drawing a bald man in braces and carpet slippers. He called him Fred. He received over eighty rejection letters for his Fred cartoons before being picked up by a magazine and soon afterwards Paperlink, a greeting card publisher, took him on and published his work as a range of cards to great success. Over nine million Fred greeting cards were sold worldwide.

More recently Rupert has created new two ranges. The first one that came along, in 2012, was Off The Leash, featuring cartoons about dogs and how they interact with us. This has proved to be immensely popular. More recently, Rupert has launched his On the Prowl range featuring cats and their secret thoughts about humans.

We are delighted to present some new designs in both these ranges. We love the one showing two dogs dozing in their bed when the alarm clock goes off, deciding to press the snooze button until some point later in the week. It's a dog's life!

We also like the one showing a couple of poodles checking their credit card statement and are horrified to see the amount spent at the poodle parlour.

View all of our Off the Leash cards

From the cat range, aptly named On the Prowl, there are also new designs. One of our favourites is the one with the cat showing just a hint of some hidden evil.

Another favourite is the one where a cat is pretending to be stuck on the roof, causing much worry to his owners, despite being able to get down easily himself!

The On the Prowl range can be found within our Cardmix range.

Here is an interview, showing Rupert Fawcett talking about his Off the Leash cartoon range.

 

New greeting cards featuring the comic talents of Alex Lowe

15 August, 2017 0 comments Leave a comment

Wonderfully funny new card designs from Drama Queen, Irene & Gladys and Tools of the Trade, with captions all written by Alex Lowe.

Some of our most popular cards that feature satirical captions - Drama Queen, Irene & Gladys, and Tools of the Trade - all share one thing, namely the writing talents of Alex Lowe. 

Alex Lowe is a talented comedian, actor and writer. He has appeared in films (including Much Ado about Nothing and Peter's Friends) and many TV shows such as Peter Kay's Phoenix Nights, Bremner, Bird and Fortune, and The Fast Show to name but a few. 

In 2005, he began calling a London talk radio station, LBC, as 'Barry from Watford'. The character Barry became very popular with listeners. A stage show followed entitled 'Let's talk to Barry', alongside Catherine Tate and Iain Lee, the original DJ that 'Barry' used to phone up on LBC. Here is a video with a recording of one of Barry's calls to Iain Lee on LBC radio.

Barry from Watford is now a regular contributor on BBC Radio 2's Steve Wright in the Afternoon show.

For us at the Comedy Card Company, it is Alex Lowe's comic writing skills which are most of interest. He has penned some truly hilarious captions for the Drama Queen range of greeting cards. Drama Queen is a hugely popular and successful range of cards. It features funny captions to original, old theatrical photographs. It has been nominated for a Henry Cole Classic Award in the Henries. The Henries are the greeting card industry's equivalent of the Oscars and the Henry Cole Award is awarded to a range that has stood the test of time, a true classic.

We are delighted to announce that Drama Queen has released several new designs. They have a slightly fresher look. These are a couple of our favourites. We love the idea that going to the kitchen to fetch a Gin & Tonic can be added to your fitbit steps!

 

Take a look at our Drama Queen range.

Alex Lowe is also responsible for the adorable Irene & Gladys range, featuring the thoughts of two elderly ladies as they visit an art gallery and view some fine paintings. Here is one of our favourites of the new designs, showing Irene and Gladys mistaking the bewigged medieval character as a painting of Brian May from Queen!

Alex Lowe has also penned the captions to the Tools of the Trade range. This range of cards features somewhat idealistic images from the Ladybird book era, showing tradesmen /professionals at work, with suitably satirical captions from Alex! We love the one about the train announcer at a railway station . . .

You can find our Irene & Gladys and Tools of the Trade cards in our Cardmix section.

20 July, 2017 0 comments Leave a comment

Popular comedian Tim Vine has created a range of funny greeting cards featuring doodles captioned with his famous one-liners and puns.

Tim Vine is known for his quick-fire humour, one-liners and puns. He is a popular figure on the stand up comedy circuit and has also written several joke books. He has won the best joke award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival on two occasions - in 2010 and again in 2014 (the only person to have ever won it twice). His winning joke in 2014 was 'I decided to sell my Hoover . . . well it was just collecting dust' has recently been made into a greeting card.

The joke that won in 2010 was 'I've just been on a once-in-a-lifetime holiday. I'll tell you what, never again'. His range of greeting cards have been published by Woodmansterne, a publisher who produces top quality cards so he is in good hands. Here is one of his classic puns:

The cards are packed full of Tim Vine's sense of humour. We love this one about the patient writing to his doctor, thanking him for the wonderful tablets he has prescribed for tiredness . . .

Here is a video of Tim Vine performing on BBC's Live at the Apollo. Great fun!

Here is another video of his performance at the Melbourne Comedy Festival.

New collection of cards packed full of quirky humour

11 July, 2017 0 comments Leave a comment

We welcome Ohh Deer, a range of greeting cards featuring contemporary illustration combined with quirky humour.

Ohh Deer began life in 2011, created by University friends Jamie Mitchell and Mark Callaby. Their idea was to create a platform to help illustrators find an audience for their work and showcase their designs. They started working with just ten illustrators and have since increased that to over a hundred. Throughout their range of cards, the common thread is definitely quirkiness and contemporary design. Oh, and a good sense of humour!

One of their most successful illustrators is Gemma Correll.

Ohh Deer also publish a range of cards based on the Mr Men and Little Miss characters. These beloved characters were originally created by Roger Hargreaves and the resulting children's books were hugely popular. They make for great greeting cards, especially if you can find a recipient to match the character!

 

We also love the range by Lindsey Thomas, featuring funny captions to photographs of some felt cats.

If like me, you like some truly quirky humour, take a look at this one by Poorly Drawn Lines . . .

This is a small selection of the Ohh Deer range. As you can see, there is wide range of designs. Take a look at the whole Ohh Deer range

We welcome humorous cards from UK Greetings

03 July, 2017 0 comments Leave a comment

UK Greetings is one of the largest card publishers in the country. We have cherry picked the best from their humorous ranges to create a fun new collection of cards.

UK Greetings is a very large card publisher, producing a vast range of greeting cards. Their cards can be found in most greeting card shops, department stores and supermarkets. Within their ranges, they produce some humour ranges. At the Comedy Card Company, we have been selling two of their most popular humour ranges - the satirical humour of New Yorker and Traces of Nuts, featuring cheeky cartoons by Tim Whyatt - for some time and these are listed separately on our website. 

We have cherry picked the best cards from the rest of the humorous ranges, creating a wonderfully eclectic mix of humour in our new UK Greetings collection. As UK Greetings won the licence to use Disney characters in 2013, the range also includes some Disney favourites - from Princesses and Pixar film characters, to Star Wars and of course The Muppets!

The range includes some great caption cards, especially the Waving at Trains range, which we love . . .

The range also includes some classic Bamforth cartoons. Bamforth was one of the most successful publishers of saucy seaside postcards, back in their heyday of the 1950s. A great piece of British culture, these cartoons often revolve around cheeky double entendre. Despite the government at the time trying to crack down on the seaside postcard industry, which they found distasteful, Bamforth survived. Some of their original cartoons now sell for a lot of money in auction houses. Many of these cartoons and still funny today . . .

 

The collection is made up predominantly of birthday cards and also includes some great cards for her . . .

We are delighted to present several new designs in this popular range. Here are some of our favourites amongst the new designs . . .

Humour themes of funny Father's Day cards

23 May, 2017 0 comments Leave a comment

Let's take a look at the topics and themes that are used by greeting card publishers when thinking about the humorous aspects of dad on father's day

Father's Day is one of our favourite of all the so called 'Spring Seasons' - in the greeting card world this encompasses Valentine's, Easter, Mother's day and, of course, Father's day. This is because, at the Comedy Card Company, we specialise in humorous cards and it seems that poor old dad comes in for lots of cheeky, mickey-taking fun on Father's Day.

This means lots of hilarious cards for us to choose from to create our funny Father's Day card range. Humorous subjects abound for dad. Whereas the humour in Mother's Day cards can often be more respectful or reserved, the greeting card publishers let rip on dad! Of course he can take it with his great sense of humour can't he?

Dad's Lazyness

Is this true? Surely not. However, it would appear that dad's amount of sofa lounging and lack of help with household chores has not gone unnoticed. Lots of cards pick up on this.

Dad's Flatulence

An amazing number of cards poke fun at the amount of gas emanating from father's bottom! 

Dad's Jokes

Did you hear the one about . . . ? Many cards point out that father's jokes are getting old and the humour is wearing thin.

Dad's Wisdom and Knowledge

With a lifetime of experience, a father can pass so much knowledge onto his children which of course is gratefully received.

Dad's DIY skills

Another popular subject revolves around father's attempt at DIY. Why pay an over-priced tradesman when you can do it yourself? 

Take a look at this hilarious videos of some DIY disasters . . .

Dad's Obsession with Sport

Some dads live for their sport whether that is playing it or watching it endlessly on TV, shouting and cheering through the game. We have lots of card focussing either on a father's time spent watching sport or having a stab at playing it. We have lots of hilarious cards about golf in particular.

Dad's Parenting Skills

No one can compare to mum in child rearing skills but dad did change that nappy every now and again, didn't he? I'm sure he never dropped the baby more than a couple of times . . .

Dad Dancing

Why do dads even bother going onto the dance floor when it seems that there is a multitude of people just waiting to smirk at his groovy dance moves. If only they had seen him back in the day, in his prime . . .

Have a laugh at this informative video demonstrating the evolution of dad dancing . . .

We can have a right old laugh with dad but we also love him for this very reason. Don't forget to tell your dad just how much you love him this Father's Day on Sunday 18th June.
