Attention Comedy Writers

The Ironic News Report has space for a few new writers. The INR is both a comedy segment that runs on Chicago Public Radio's Vocalo Programming AND an extended topical/political satire show that can be heard Tues and Thurs from 11-1 on Fearless Radio or can be downloaded to podcast. We are seeking two-liner writers for news topics as you would see in a late night talk show and/or a new parody show such as the Daily Show or Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update. We request a commit to writing that can be negotiated and would run anywhere from 5-10 jokes per week on up. If you get accepted, you will get a by-line in the show and you'll have a venue to get your material 'out there'. Future monetary compensation is also possible.

Think you might have what it takes?
Do this:
Go to www.IronicNewsReport.com to hear previous editions of the show to get an idea of what we are seeking.
Email 6-8 2-liners based on the week's national news to IronicNewsReport@gmail.com for consideration. (You can also email any questions to this address)
Sit back and wait for our speedy reply-

We look forward to hearing from you!
The Ironic New Report Producers
