Frequently Asked Questions
- What is ComedyCalls.com?
ComedyCalls.com is a fun site which allows the user to call just about any phone number with a variety of pranks, jokes, and other content we (and hopefully the recipient) find funny or useful. What if you don’t think we’re funny? Find out how to STOP UNWANTED CALLS by clicking here.
ComedyCalls.com actually used to be PrankDialer.com. It first started with the now classic Rick Roll prank, and has grown to what it is today, with multiple ‘Dialer’ sites, an extensive array of content to send, and much more to come!
On launch day of April Fools, 2008 PrankDialer rickrolled over 30,000 people and has placed over one million calls since. The recent change to ComedyCalls.com reflects a new partnership with HumorHotlines.com and allows us to offer tons more hilarious content for you to send!
- Why Do I see Phone Numbers everywhere, I thought this was calling people?
The calls you place from ComedyCalls.com can look like they are coming from any caller ID you choose. You could use your own phone number in the caller ID so the recipient is more likely to pick up, or you can choose any of the funny Humor Hotlines numbers to use as the caller ID so when the recipient tries to call the prankster back they get double pranked!
- Is it free?
ComedyCalls is totally free to try out! It will not cost the person receiving the call either, unless for some reason it costs money for them to receive a call, which is almost always not the case. However, we suggest you double-check with the recipient before using any of our outbound calling sites.
After trying it out you are invited to purchase additional call credits for peanuts. Well, not for peanuts, but for pennies anyway. The more you buy, the cheaper they are, so stock up - call credits never expire!
- What if they don't pick up? Will it go to voicemail?
Once someone (or something) picks up the phone, the message starts to play. Some voicemail and answering machine systems can take quite some time before they actually start recording a message, and by that time your selected message may be done playing. There is no definite answer as to what they will hear.
The best way to ensure your victim will get the call is to schedule it when you know they will pick up, or better yet use your phone number as the caller ID, so they will think it is actually you calling!
- Stop calling me!
We're sorry if you have received an unwanted call from the site. This site is not an automatic dialer which means every call placed was originated by someone who knows your phone number. To help alleviate abuse, we have implemented a DO NOT CALL list that will prevent your number from being dialed by any site we are associated with, permanently. Click here to place your number on the DO NOT CALL list.
