I’m Eli, and I’m glad you’re here. I’m an American satirist and frequent contributor to The New Yorker and McSweeney's Internet Tendency. I’m the author of the upcoming satirical essay collection This Won’t Help: Modest Proposals for a More Enjoyable Apocalypse. Sign up below to read my latest humor. Nothing will cure me from reading the news — I’m hoping this does:

With Here’s Something, I publish original topical satire every week. Part catharsis and part diagnosis, these pieces are meant to peel back the layers of our political, environmental, economic, and cultural landscape—and uncover the absurdity brewing inside. It’s a comical house of horrors, and the only way out is through.

  • A new piece of topical satire exclusive to this newsletter, every week.
