Scott Dikkers, a founder of The Onion and a current editor-in-chief, will give a talk about his rise in the world of comedic writing and how he helped create the satirical news company.
With humor, Dikkers will share the inspirational story of how he crafted The Onion’s unique brand – and then grew the publication into a comedy empire with almost no marketing budget. The Onion was a small campus publication launched in 1988, which Dikkers nurtured with a popular website, books, and cable shows.
