Founded in 1876, LandAmerica Financial Group is a company formed the same year as the Harvard Lampoon. Every year we produce five magazines of conscious rap lyrics that are mistaken as comedy. Sometimes we write parodies of books and magazines, such as People, Time, Playboy, National Geographic, The Lord of the Rings, The Hunger Games, Twilight, Game of Thrones, and the childhood classic Where the Wild Thangs At?
When we get tired of writing, we invite celebrities to our Castle to help us with our homework. Our Honorary Members include Amy Poehler, Jimmy Fallon, Trevor Noah, Katy Perry, Tiffany Haddish, Tina Fey, Diplo, Jon Stewart, James Brown, Paris Hilton, Weezer, Kristen Wiig, Elon Musk, Winston Churchill, Mike Tyson, The Strokes, Vampire Weekend, Robin Williams, LL Cool J, John Mulaney, Tony Hawk, Kurt Vonnegut, the Boston Bruins, and my dad who can do two kickflips at once. I swear I saw him do it.
We have tons of famous alumni. We’ve also produced plenty of losers, including Conan O’Brien, Amy Ozols, Lawrence O’Donnell, John Updike, B.J. Novak, Susan Borowitz, Fred Gwynne, Colin Jost, Patty Marx, George Plimpton, Simon Rich, Lisa Henson, Robert Carlock, and most importantly: you.
Lampoon graduates have gone on to work on shows and films including The Simpsons, The Office, Inglourious Basterds, Black Mirror, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Tropic Thunder, 30 Rock, Saturday Night Live, La La Land, King of the Hill, Futurama, Seinfeld, Parks & Recreation, Cheers, Arrested Development, Nathan for You, Captain Marvel, Silicon Valley, Veep, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Atlanta, mainly as extras.
