El Chigüire Bipolar

Chaser Lecturers 2017

"The world's second greatest satirical news team."

El Chigüire Bipolar is an explosively successful Venezuelan satire site created in 2008 by the Elio Casale, Oswaldo Graziani and Juan Andrés Ravell, a group of friends who saw an opportunity to use online satire to shine a light on the suppression of news by the oppressive Venezuelan government.

El Chigüire was one of the winners of the Václav Havel Prize for the Creative Dissident 2017, in recognition of their outstanding commitment to honestly covering the news. According to Garry Kasparov, secretary Of the Human Rights Foundation, "Their combination of humor coupled with honest uncompromising analysis demonstrate the great power of satire when criticizing authoritarian regimes."

Q&A

About the Chaser

The Chaser is a satirical media empire which rivals Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation in all fields except power, influence, popularity and profitability.

Founded in 1999 as a fortnightly satirical newspaper produced out of a spare bedroom, the team decided to leave behind the highly profitable bedroom print industry in 2001 after being offered a TV contract by Andrew Denton if they agreed to stop stealing his letterbox. Since those humble beginnings, the Chaser team has lost its humility and has produced Classic™ comedy in all media, including print, online, radio, television and Christmas crackers.
