Not content with his work with Tesla, The Boring Company and SpaceX, Elon Musk is set to expand his portfolio and launch a new comedy project. According to reports, Musk has recruited two senior employees from satire site The Onion, with former Editor-In-Chief Cole Bolton and ex-Executive Editor Ben Berkley reportedly joining the staff in 2017.
