Real Hard Hitting Hilarity
29 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Onion has always been the benchmark for insanity. It's twisted sense of reality, Hilarity is totally over the top and is pure comedic genius. What's so great about everything The Onion does, it's done straight, VERY straight. I cannot help but think there are some folks out there who have watched this and thought, "This is just wrong. What is with this people?" and completely missing the fact that it's a parody, not real. Ever character, every news story is written and timed so well, it would be believable if it weren't so absurd. The talking head segments, the comments, everything is fantastic. It's got the same snap as National Lampoon had in it's heyday.

Lots of people can make good comedy. There are different styles and means of delivery and many of them work wonderfully within their style. Sure, there's a heck of a lot of garbage out there some folks are trying to pass off as comedy and sadly, more often than not, that's the stuff the birdbrains running the networks often flock to. But there are only so many who can truly pull THIS stuff off and why there aren't more seasons of The Onion News Network available is simply beyond me.

Peeling this Onion will make you cry tears of laughter. (Sorry, I felt I had to use that horrid metaphor).
