Radio Interview of Interest: Peter Steiner

Here’s Peter Steiner on WAMC’s Roundtable with Joe Donahue (broadcast August 28, 2018).   Mr. Steiner began contributing to the New Yorker in 1979.

From his entry on the Spill‘s A-Z:

Mr. Steiner is responsible for one of the most famous (and most republished) New Yorker cartoons in modern times, “On the Internet, nobody knows you’re a dog.” (published July 5, 1993).  An indication of its enduring popularity in our culture:  a wikipedia page is devoted to it.   He has also had novels published, as well as the limited edition “An Atheist in Heaven.” Website: www.plsteiner.com/

Celebrity Cartoon Captioning Continues

From Viewing NYC, August 30, 2018, “Watch Comedian Nick Kroll Caption New Yorker Cartoons On The Spot”

— the newyorker.com series carries on with this enjoyable episode. Good job, Mr. Kroll.

For the record: the drawings shown are (in order of appearance) by: Liam Walsh (chainsaws), Tom Cheney (large poultry), Corey Pandolph (subway cars at bar), Liam Walsh (alley stick ’em up), Will McPhail (ice fishing), Kaamran Hafeez (cowboys), Frank Cotham (invisible man on sofa), Tom Cheney (monster sofa), and David Borchart (beavers).  Perhaps the captioning celebs could identify the artists in coming episodes?
