Who We Are
We are the official humor publication of the University of Texas at Austin.
Since 2000, we have won The Austin Chronicle’s Best Local Publication Award on seven different occasions, conducted interviews with comedians such as Demetri Martin and Hannibal Buress, produced a UT student- body President and Vice-President, and produced 6 issues of high-quality comedy a year.
What We’re Fundraising For
We are looking to raise money to help our staff continue to produce 3 issues of our newspaper a semester and additionally produce topical, humorous content (including video content) to put on our website.
We are a group of ~20 students -- the Travesty has given all of us a place to develop our satire writing skills, something we couldn't do anywhere else. Donating will help us come up with new and innovative ways to reach our audience. Past donations have allowed our video staff to buy equipment so that they can make videos with higher production value. Most importantly, the Travesty keeps the UT community laughing through the dark times that we live in.
