MAD Magazine, oft-credited as the pioneer of satire and absurdism in mainstream American culture, celebrated its 60-year anniversary in 2012. Now, thanks to a Kickstarter project, a documentary is in the works to explore the influence of the comedic mainstay since its inception in 1952.
“When We Went MAD” will include interviews with 20 original and current MAD contributors, including Al Jafee, Mort Drucker and Dick Debartolo. It’ll also cover all six decades of MAD’s history, following “Totally MAD: 60 years of Humor, Satire, Stupidity and Stupidity,” a 2012 anthology devoted to “the thousands of jokes that have died on the pages of MAD.”
