The Onion creator visiting area … seriously

PENSACOLA — Pensacola State College presents an evening with Scott Dikkers, creator of The Onion News Network, set for 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 24, in the Jean and Paul Amos Performance Studio on the Pensacola campus. 

Tickets are $11 for adults; $9, seniors, non-PSC students and children; $7, PSC Seniors Club members, PSC faculty and staff; and free for PSC students with current ID. 

A comedy writer, speaker and entrepreneur, Dikkers is the founding and longest serving editor-in-chief of The Onion. He co-wrote and edited the New York Times bestselling books "Our Dumb World" and "Our Dumb Century," and currently hosts "The Comedy Insider Podcast." 

Sharing the hilarious and unlikely story of how he and a few friends started a fake newspaper that grew to be one of the world’s most popular online humor sites, Dikkers imparts the inspirational lessons he has learned about pursuing dreams and taking creative risks. 

Tickets go on sale Jan. 7 and can be purchased at or at the Lyceum Box Office, Building 8, Room 861, from 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Tickets also are available at the door, one hour before the performance.
