Our first original web series, Agents of Cracked was nominated for the 2010 Audience Choice Streamy, and thanks to you guys WE FREAKING WON!
We've always known we have the best fans on the Internet. Sunday night made it official. Cracked.com took home the Audience Choice award at the 2nd Annual Streamys and we couldn't have done it without your votes.
As he made his way to the podium to accept the Audience Choice award wearing a snazzy tuxedo-eye patch ensemble Michael Swaim was greeted by security and ushered out of the building. While Michael has claimed anti-eye patch discrimination, the fact that it was two hours before the Audience Choice award and right in the middle of Paul Scheer's opening monologue ce.
After an extensive lecture from Streamy Officials on how award shows work, Michael reentered the building in disguise (switching the patch to his other eye) just in time to hear the announcement that Agents of Cracked had in fact won.
Yeah, we know we already showed this, but seriously, he wore a fucking eye patch.
Based on the generous prepared remarks he delivered, and the fact that he could read them at all, conspiracy theorists have suggested that the Michael who accepted the award was in fact a replicant robot. However, Cracked.com assures you that these theories are at best, only partially true.
So thank you, fans and spambots alike, for your generous (or programmed) support of our noble dream to become the most popular dumb assholes known to man.
Michael Swaim is a loose cannon with unorthodox methods and balls to match. Daniel O'Brien wears glasses. As Agents of Cracked, they're trained to handle anything the world of internet comedy throws at them, but can they handle...being partners!? Tune in to Cracked.com every weekday for a series as wildly original as it is not derivative of the Lethal Weapon franchise.
Michael Swaim Michael hosted Cracked TV before a withering sex scandal forced him off the air. Now he's back, with a new 'tude and fresh wax job. Also Cracked TV is still on. Congratulations on reading this: YOU HAVE LEARNED NOTHING.

He recently met Dan, who has recently appeared more frequently in Michael's life. Often, Abe is found on dark London streets howling and searching for his long, lost (invisible) love. He also found the camera used to shoot the series.
