Adult Swim launches ThingX.com with Former Staff Members of The Onion

New Comedy Digital Offering Debuts Today

Adult Swim launched today a new digital comedy website called Thing X (www.ThingX.com), which is 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, blurbs, bleeps, cybersnips, and podcasts. The site also boasts an active social media presence, as well as original interviews and performances from comedy friends such as Tim Heidecker, Gregg Turkington, Dave Willis, and others.

"We are thrilled to be working with some of the best comedy writers in the country," said vice president of Adult Swim Digital and Games, Jeff Olsen. "It's an amazing talent pool and a perfect fit for our digital business."

"This is a unique opportunity for us to create something totally new and original that is very much a product of the digital age," said creative director Randazzo. "The content we're making for Thing X is kind of insane. It's going to be unlike anything else out there."

Joining Randazzo on the creative staff are: John Harris, head writer (former senior writer at The Onion and The Onion News Network on IFC), Joe Garden, writer/producer (former features editor of The Onion and author of The Dangerous Book for Dogs), Chris Karwowski, writer/producer (former writer/producer of Onion Radio News); Matt Kirsch, writer/producer (former digital product manager for The Onion and creator of Duder), Jason Roeder, writer/producer (former senior writer at The Onion and writer of Sex: Our Bodies, Our Junk); Steve Beslow, managing editor (former senior digital editor at Golf Magazine) Audubon Dougherty, digital director (research affiliate at MIT Comparative Media Studies and former senior communications specialist at 1199SEIU), Tom Witte, art director (Wonder Pets, TV Fun House, Humongous Entertainment), Nick Gallo, creative producer (former graphics director at The Onion and executive producer of Girlhattan), and Sascha Stanton-Craven, post director (former lead editor and writer for ONN and The Onion News Network on IFC).
