Lewis Black lets his fury fly on stage as he brings his latest stand-up show to Saban Theatre. Known for his no-holds-barred rants on The Daily Show and on the stand-up circuit, Black's shows are a much-needed catharsis for anyone who's fed up with the state of politics and society. An acclaimed comic, actor and author at the top of his game, Black has a way of raging against the machine that not only expresses what so many feel, but also captures the black comedy that lurks in our political processes and popular culture. His ability to turn anger into laughter has earned the comedian sell-out shows in his eight appearances on Broadway and two Grammys for best comedy album. Learn More

It was fun. Didn't know what to expect. Basically two of the editors stood on stage read headlines, told some stories, and led a Q. & A. session. The audience questions were a bit awkward, and some were a train wreck - which was quite awesome in an uncomfortable kind of way. You know, like when your drunk uncle starts telling innapropriate jokes at the dinner table while the kids and grandma pretend not to listen. Actually, I take that back. It wasn't quite that entertaining... but our friends liked it. Our Goldclass seats were fantastic.

Deadpan satire and journalistic skill collide in the phenomenon that is The Onion. Founded in 1988 at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the “fake news” newspaper is the notable precursor to such biting, faux-news programs as The Daily Show and The Colbert Report.
Last year, The Onion News Network, an online send-up of 24-hour cable TV news, was named a Peabody Award winner and praised as “hilarious, trenchant and not infrequently hard to distinguish from the real thing.” Join current Onion editor Joe Randazzo and fellow staffers for a multimedia discussion on the state of media, politics and pop culture as they offer up insight into how the paper’s culture-skewering stories and hilarious headlines are created.
