PaleyFest NY: The Onion: An Evening of Polite Mockery with America’s Finest News Source
For thirty-five years The Onion has been one of America’s premier sources for humor across the media landscape, creating its own satirical take on local, national, and international news. With a creative legacy encompassing television, digital, and of course print, The Onion’s unique form of media parody helped usher in a new era of satire on television influencing a host of series. The Paley Center is pleased to welcome many of The Onion’s funniest writers to explore its history and impact on television and popular culture and why its satire is so vital to keeping the country sane.
