If you thought the Cracked articles and videos that you read and watch every day just magically appeared on your screen thanks to magic bugs living inside your computer, we’ve got bad news for you. Cracked is actually run by a wonderful team of talented folks (who, yes, live inside your computer). Below, find all of the people who make Cracked run and populate it full of content, every single day. Please thank and blame them appropriately.
Soren has been a writer, editor and performer for Cracked since 2010. He also acts as editorial oversight for merchandise in The Cracked Dispensary which, frankly, is a piece of cake because it's hard to fit more than a couple words on a t-shirt. His hobbies include chopping wood and making out.
Robert is a columnist and senior editor for Cracked, which means he gets first pick of weapons in the bi-weekly melee. He has been writing, editing, scheming and generally machinating for the site since 2007. He is the author of many books, including Rx: A Tale of Electronegativity, which you must now buy out of a sense of misplaced obligation.
Breandan has been with the site since 2010. He wears many hats for the company in terms of editing, producing, acting, writing, 3rd party relations, bowler caps, sombreros, berets, etc. Currently his focus is on the ongoing development of the Cracked 3rd party video presence and reassuring Soren that Peyton Manning still has a chance. Maybe.
Alison joined the Cracked team in July 2013 to help manage our editorial calendar, content publication and other special projects. She lends a hand wherever she's needed -- so, now she's got a hand in a little bit of everything. Her main focuses right now are in working with the editorial and video teams, contractors, business analytics, merchandise, house promotion, and payments.
Abe has been directing/editing videos for the site since 2007. Over time, this has mutated his DNA allowing him the powers of hearing his parents have sex regardless of his proximity to them and the ability to predict the future one second after its happened. He's co-created several series such as Agents of Cracked, 8 Bits, and Marvels of the Science.
Robert Evans was hired as an intern in 2008 and eventually became head of article captions and the Workshop Moderator team. In 2013 he launched a new series of Personal Experience articles for Cracked, and he currently manages the best team of reporters in the world of Internet Comedy. He has not written a book but he might (if you ask nicely).
Adam has worked at Cracked since 2012. In that time he's directed, written, edited, produced and occasionally acted in tens of sketches! His resume includes brief stints as a pastor, divorce court supervisor, video clerk, and barista. Cracked is an obvious next step in his quest to become a space pirate.
Cody has created article and video content for Cracked since 2009 when he lived in Ohio, a state. He moved to a different state in 2011 to work for the site fulltime. Now he writes, performs in, edits, animates, musics, and does special FX for videos. He also writes an occasional column. In his free time, none of your business.
Bryan really takes the Knight name very seriously with over 20 years of sword fighting experience as a hobby. He utilizes the same precision tactics in his professional work life. Slicing and piercing software bugs with a vengeance. (No he's not related to Sean!)
Randall is a graphic designer who has worked with Cracked since 2008, the year best remembered for the song "So What" by recording artist P!nk. Like P!nk, he has also worn many different hats. Art Director, Special Effects Consultant, Illustrator, Video Director, Layout Coordinator and Liquid Terminator, to name all of them. Goodbye.
Daniel has been with the site since 2007. A mediocre Jack-of-some-trades, he has at one time or another handled writing, editing, performing, directing, photoshopping and article-layout for Cracked. Currently, he runs the Columnist section and oversees the creative direction of Cracked Video. He is the author of How to Fight Presidents, a book you can buy.
Founder of the current incarnation of Cracked, he co-created and writes for After Hours, writes and hosts the weekly Cracked Podcast and the video series The Spittake. He's not related to head writer, and second person he hired, Daniel O'Brien. “Not as far as Daniel knows," he’s fond of adding with a creepy smile. Ugh. What does that even mean?
David Wong is the pseudonym for a man whose real name, Jason Pargin, is a closely-guarded secret known to only four people in the world and now you. He is the Executive Editor of Cracked, the founder of the Cracked writers' workshop, and the author of the NYT bestselling John Dies at the End series.
Michael began writing for Cracked in 2007, and later transitioned into a leadership/production role on the video team. His background is exactly what you think it is, but with some differences. He writes, edits, acts, produces, and manages, and his first movie, Kill Me Now, is currently available online.
