The Simpsons and The Onion Writers In-Conversation
What to know about the festival: Going on 26 years for the second year running, it features a lineup of alt-comedy all-stars curated by The Onion and The A.V. Club, cult-classic movies with expert commentary, and humor experiments such as Seven Minutes in Purgatory.
What to know about The Onion: Purported founded in 1756 by a Prussian tuber farmer, The Onion has grown into its nickname, “America’s Finest News Source,” with a Peabody-winning video news network and an online paper full of satirical headlines that manage to always be true and never factual.
What to know about The Simpsons: If a fan wanted to call it the most influential cartoon—or sitcom—of all time, they’d have a pretty good argument. The ubiquitous comedy titan is currently wrapping up its 26th season and preparing for more.
Who’s up first: Writers from The Onion talk about their comedy process, offer a peek into their joke-writing strategy, and tell stories from their three-decade history before opening up a Q&A session.
How The Simpsons can follow that: Producer/writer/showrunner Al Jean chairs a panel featuring longtime writers Bill Odenkirk, Carolyn Omine, John Frink, Stewart Burns, Mike Price, and Rob LaZebnik, all of whom will share anecdotes and answer audience questions afterward.
