Andy Borowitz is a writer and satirist known for his work in a wide variety of media. And he’s much
funnier than you. His work ranges from the NBC sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air to frequent pieces in The New Yorker and his own satirical news project called The Borowitz Report. Borowitz was recently chosen by The Library of America to edit an anthology called The 50 Funniest American Writers: An Anthology of Humor from Mark Twain to The Onion – a topic he certainly knows well. CBS News called Borowitz “one of the funniest people in America,” and we have to agree. Thank you, Texas Book Festival, for bringing Borowitz to town.
