Comedy Hackathon was a non-profit technology event that took place between August 28-29, 2015, in the WMN Workspace. It brought designers, developers and entrepreneurs together with comedians, with the sole goal of creating funny apps, games, websites, etc in 36 hours.

About 200 people registered to attend the event, of which 100 were chosen to take part in it. Participants came from all age groups and occupations, from teenagers to high tech veterans.

Several professional comedians were invited to serve as mentors. These included some of Israel’s most prolific TV and internet stars, such as Alon Neuman, Assaf Harel, Nice Guy Hochman and more.

The event was met with an overwhelmingly positive reaction from its participants, and even received coverage on Ha’aretz’s tech column.

While there are plans to revive the Comedy Hackathon and host it once more, currently the project is on hold.
