Creation of the Comedy Heaven Discord[edit | edit source]

The creation of the first Comedy Heaven Discord server was opened on January 20, 2019. It was later nuked on January 24, 2020, and the subreddit moved to a new server the same day.

New Community Awards[edit | edit source]

Community Awards

On July 19th, 2019 user u/emmademontford would announce the creation of new community awards for the ComedyHeaven subreddit, community awards are awards which mods can use to award posts of their choosing with their coins from the subreddit bank, these community awards would feature many prominent figures within the circlejerk of the ComedyHeaven subreddit such as an "I'm Stuff" Award, a Walter award, a Kachow Mcqueen award, or the most expensive Rare Lego Yoda, worth 40,000 reddit coins (Around 99,99 USD.)

First Mod Applications[edit | edit source]

On August 12th, 2019 the first moderator applications would be announced, a rule revamp in the future was also announced.

Hey guys,

It's been a little while since our last mod application process, and in that time the sub has grown considerably! With this growth we want to expand our mod team, to help filter the shit cope with the extra content that needs moderating, and to also allow more content through the manual moderator-approval filter and onto the sub, which we need a larger team to do.

Therefore, the r/comedyheaven mod application form is now open, link here:

if you're interested just fill out the form, simple as!

We're looking to add a large amount of mods, and this may well be the last application we're doing for a while, so this is probably your best opportunity to apply.

Also, a rule revamp is in the works, to allow the rules to better reflect the content this sub was designed for, so look out for that in the future!



Pro-Donald Trump Account Hijacking[edit | edit source]

The Strike from Disney

On August 7th there would be a massive attack on many subreddits, including /r/ComedyHeaven. A user, or rather coordinated group of people known as "advanceHCAjobs" would hijack the accounts of many innocent subreddit mods, and plaster pro-Donald Trump 2020 campaign advertisements all over the subreddits which the hijacked accounts had mod permissions on. This would even gain the attention of reddit admins, the admins would also release an official statement related to this.

There is an ongoing incident with moderator accounts being compromised and used to vandalize subreddits. We’re working on locking down the bad actors and reverting the changes.


Judging by the internet archive, the subreddit would return to normal a day after.

End of "Approved Users"[edit | edit source]

Before August 16th and the announcement that ended the system of "Approved Users", it was a system where a mod would approve a post and the OP gets a user flair that labels them as a approved user and adds them to the approved user list. That means that they get through the mod queue next time they post and their post goes straight to new. This system unfortunately enough didn't work as intended for the moderators, as even with this system terrible submissions would get into new and clog up the subreddit. The simple solution was to get rid of it. Every post now has had to be approved by the moderation.

ComedyHell's Revival[edit | edit source]

Sometime around late 2020 the moderators at r/ComedyHeaven (?) would request ownership of the subreddit and change ComedyHell into a less strict ComedyHeaven, "A CH without mods" it would be the first sister subreddit to ComedyHeaven.

Split from the Discord server[edit | edit source]

r/comedyheaven severed all ties with its Discord server on January 27, 2021, after the subreddit's moderators determined that the server's userbase was "low quality" and "irredeemable". The server was given a new owner and it soon became known as the I.C.U., short for the Institution for the Criminally Unfunny.

@everyone After long discussion the r/comedyheaven sub is no longer interested in being linked to this community, instead of being archived or deleted it will be re-branded under it's own new name to be decided. Since I'm no longer interested in being the owner of this community it will be handed to <@!351535390618026004> because I feel they will be the best replacement. All things related to the sub and it's old identity will be renamed or deleted.


Creation of r/ComedyDamnation[edit | edit source]

A new sibling subreddit to r/ComedyHeaven would be created on July 9th, 2021. This would be a subreddit for mods of r/ComedyHeaven where they would post some of the funnier (or stupider) content that appeared in the mod queue that wouldn't be able to get approved in the actual subreddit. It would be partnered to r/ComedyHeaven and would appear next to r/ComedyHell in the "Official Comedy Heaven Subs" widget

April Fools Mascot Event[edit | edit source]

On April 1st, 2022 the user u/lmaobadatmath would announce an event related to choosing the mascot of r/ComedyHeaven. Though the subreddit already had a mascot, it's name was the "Gay Jar Jar" inspired by one of the posts from the subreddit in which there was a caption above a Jar Jar stating that "I am GAY and i SHIT all over the FLOOR" but unfortunately enough Gay Jar Jar was removed from his position due to a copyright strike from Disney (Fake.) Users were forced to for a few days, send posts related to choosing a new mascot of the subreddit.

Hello lanky children, you may have heard the news, but our famed Gay Jar Jar has been removed from the sub as a whole. Due to copyright reasons that we cannot control, Disney has politely asked us to remove him from the sub indefinitely. While we are not only incredible pissed and sad and shitting all over the place, we do have something to provide.


This mini april fools event would also have some guidelines that users had to follow, no political figures as mascots, no minions or gru, no edgy things, no banned content as mascots and no "amongus sus". The winning user would receive a flair of their choosing.

Temporary June 12th Strike[edit | edit source]

Like many subreddits did, r/ComedyHeaven would also join the June 12th Strike together with many other subreddits.
