I’ve suspected for a while that The Onion, a satirical newspaper, had some kind of relationship with improvisation. With articles like this and graphics like this the writers clearly know something about the subculture that is improv comedy. I’ve even recognized improvisers from their Onion News Network videos (not to be confused with DSI Witness News). Here’s Improv Everywhere’s Charlie Todd discussing  how all wrestling fans are actually paid professionals:

But my suspicion has been confirmed by yet another reference to improvisation in this recent video (at the 1 minute 20 second mark):

Who else could know that nerd male improvisers only talk to nerd girls improvisers? Speaking of, if you’re interested in becoming either one of those, Zach Ward’s 101/201 summer intensive has 2 spots left!
