Outside of my work on Onion News Empire, you may also know me from my roles as Hank Kingsley on the sitcom The Larry Sanders Show and George Bluth, Sr. on Arrested Development, the fourth season of which premiers May 26 exclusively on Netflix. I have also appeared in the comedy films City Slickers and The Hangover, and the television series Three’s Company, Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, and Bob’s Burgers.
But enough about me. Allow me to introduce the co-creators of Onion News Empire, who will be answering your questions under the handle OnionNewsEmpire. They haven't had one of their famous catchphrases immortalized in t-shirt form, but maybe one day they'll get there:

Daniel Mirk: Daniel was the senior staff writer for The Onion News Network web series from it's launch in 2007 until last year. He was also the senior writer of the Onion News Network IFC series.
