Babylon Bee to host first ever live event featuring writers, comics and ‘fake news enthusiasts’

Jan 24, 2023 | Political News

The Babylon Bee has announced its first-ever live event, set to take place on February 24 in Forth Worth, Texas.

CEO Seth Dillon and his crew have promised an evening like no other, filled with good times, good people, and, of course, an all-you-can-eat buffet of “fake news.”

“Join us at THE BABYLON BEE LIVE for an exclusive night of laughter, discussion, food, drink, and all the satire you can handle,” the event description reads.

Attendees will get the chance to mingle with their favorite Babylon Bee personalities, and be privy to exciting new developments. There will also be a live podcast recording and comedy segments.

The event will take place at the iconic River Ranch Stockyards at 500 NE 23rd St in Fort Worth.

“One thing the pandemic reminded us is that the internet is not reality, and connecting over Zoom is just the worst,” Babylon Bee editor-in-chief Kyle Mann said in a statement to The Post Millennial. “Nothing can replace getting together with like-minded people to remind us that we're not alone in our beliefs and values.”

Mann pointed out that one-way leftism and wokeism thrive by “amplifying fringe viewpoints online and by isolating those with common-sense views and values, trying to make us feel like we’re a minority.”

“Our hope,” he continued, “is that Babylon Bee Live is just one small way for regular Americans to get together, hang out, and have some laughs with the people behind your favorite conservative boomer humor on the internet.”

Since its inception, The Babylon Bee has grown to become the preeminent conservative satire site, offering a fresh take on the genre. They rose to prominence after being kicked off Twitter, with their suspension being one of the first things that caught current CEO Elon Musk's attention when the idea of buying the platform entered his mind.

Since then, their account has been reinstated, and they continue to provide witty, topical content to their millions of fans.
