The Writers Of The Onion says
Featuring writers Seena Vali and Matt Spina. Part of Pittsburgh Humanities Festival 2017.

The Onion is an award-winning satirical news organization,
delivering unrivaled journalism and reaching millions of fans
through print, broadcast, radio, online, and mobile outlets.

Founded in 1988 as a student newspaper at the University of
Wisconsin, Madison, The Onion now has a devout following of
2 million readers per week in print and has been described as
“arguably the most popular humor periodical in world history”
by The New Yorker. Its 23-time Webby Award-winning website,, described by TIME as “the funniest site on the
Internet,” averages 40 million page views per month.

The Onion brings humor and intellect into every live
engagement. A typical presentation features two members
of the creative staff offering the audience an intimate glimpse
inside the writers’ room of America’s Finest News Source, as
well as behind the scenes access to its video and television
arm, the Onion News Network. The talented writers and editors
walk the audience through the history of the satirical news
behemoth, taking them beyond its famous headlines, and—
provided the proper headset mics—they dance. Topics can
range from an overview of The Onion’s year in news to a harsh
analysis of today’s corporate landscape to what new media
means for the publishing industry.
