Despite being the butt of one of their typically darker than dark jokes, it’s clear that Glenn Beck is a fan of The Onion. A few months ago he filmed a great spot for the satirical paper’s fake (?) Pulitzer Prize campaign and now he’s got a cameo in tomorrow night’s episode of the Onion News News. IFC has released a clip and, as always, it’s pretty damn funny.
Keeping with the previously laid continuity that Beck used to work for ONN, the new clip shows that he once auditioned for host of the fake network’s fake flagship show FactZone. This revealed in a clip from a fake documentary on the fake history of that show’s fake anchor, Brooke Alvarez, played by Suzanne Sena. The documentary explains why Alvarez is as cold and heartless as she is as her childhood involved forced Cosmonaut training and brutal monkey fights. Like I said, darker than darker.
Check out the clip below. The episode airs on IFC tomorrow night at 10.
