Thing X Launch Party – 12.6.12 is a new website, presented by Adult Swim and from the former staff of the Onion. When the Onion moved to Chicago the Peabody Award winning New York staff stayed in NYC and started Thing X. My brother used to work for the Onion so I know a bunch of the new Thing X staff and I was asked to come out and take photos.

It was a pretty amazing event. There was so much hilarious branding everywhere, even in the bathrooms. I took a bunch of photos of the weird stuff they had everywhere so check that out. The performances at the show were pretty great with Cerebral Ballzy and El-P headlining. It was pretty weird seeing them play to a small crowd of TV executives and comedy writers. I think that made it even better of a show. With a giant X mascot named Thingy roaming around the whole thing was really surreal. One of my favorite comics Eugene Mirman performed as did Michael Che. They were both very funny which is important in a room full of comedians. Tim Harrington from Les Savy Fav DJd in between sets and The Jonny Lam Band opened the evening. Oh and Joe Garden hosted and did not get naked as was promised.
