A History & Celebration of MAD Magazine
MAD has looked at the world through smart, satirical eyes for 70 years & influenced generations to distrust blowhards of all stripes. Introduced Fold-ins, Spy vs. Spy, Drawn-out Dramas, The Lighter Side, & Snappy Answers to Stupid Questions. Injected Alfred E. Neumann’s gap-toothed grin into the world. We’ll hit the high points of MAD history, check out famous MAD covers, revel in the work of dozens of The Usual Gang of Idiots. Hear about Alan’s visit to MAD’s NYC offices in spring of 1978. Virtually every comedian of the last 60 years cites them as an influence & inspiration; come see why!
