Founded in 2019, The Laugh Club appears to be the satire wing of Newsner, a source we have rated Questionable. The Laugh Club completely lacks transparency by not offering an about page, and author names; however, the contact page does indicate the website is owned by Newsner and is produced by N365 Group.

Funded by / Ownership

The Laugh Club is owned by N365 Group, which is not prominently present on the website. Revenue is derived through advertising.

Analysis / Bias

In review, The Laugh Club appears to be a satire website that does not disclose they are satire. For example, this story: You can now buy a portable toilet, so you can poop anywhere your heart desires. While this may be a real product, I am sure the intent is to make people laugh, but there is not a disclaimer here. They also promote far-out pseudoscience such as this: People are claiming Greta Thunberg is a time traveler from 1898 after baffling photo. Either way, this is a website that promotes fake news, similar to Newsner.
