Originally founded in year 2000 on the premise of trying to control those spammy forwards we saw in our email everyday, two kids from high school decided to put together Jokeroo. With the desire to control the annoying email forwards, Jokeroo emerged as a destination for funny jokes, funny pictures, greeting cards and eventually evolved into funny online video. Typically, it all started in Math class and became a work of art from their basements. Eight years later, Jokeroo transformed into JMG with over 10 employees, an office in the heart of downtown Toronto, and an investor from Seattle. Today we are known as Jolted Media Group or JMG.
