About Top5

Top5 is an independent publication re-launched in March 2023 by humorists/writers Chris White and Danny Gallagher. Our intent is to provide daily original humor written by a horde of online comedians, the same kind of "cubicle comics" many of you have worked alongside. Your subscription makes this endeavor possible and allows Top5 to thrive. So thank you!

Historical accuracy disclaimer: Top5 previously existed in various forms beginning in January of 1994 and running through 2018, and was among the internet's first original humor communities, pioneering such concepts as crowdsourcing and user-generated content. We look forward to the day we're inducted into the Internet Humor Hall of Fameshould one ever existalongside the dancing baby and the Numa Numa guy.
