Adult Swim Launches with Former Staff of The Onion

Oct 18, 2012

Adult Swim launched a new digital comedy website called Thing X, led by former Onion editor Joe Randazzo and several other members of the popular humor site. Thing X uses the conceptual launch point of a click-hungry web portal to satirize everything on the Internet through exclusive videos, columns, interviews, reviews, e-mails, podcasts, and more. The site also boasts an active social media presence, as well as original interviews and performances from comedians.

Joining Randazzo on the creative staff are: John Harris, Joe Garden, Chris Karwowski, Matt Kirsch, Jason Roeder, Steve Beslow, Audubon Dougherty, Tom Witte, Nick Gallo, and Sascha Stanton-Craven. Adult Swim, launched in 2001, is Turner Broadcasting System, Inc.'s network offering of original and acquired animated and live-action series for young adults.
