NYC – Al Jaffee’s Mad Life Signing
Al Jaffee signs on October 19th from 7:00PM – 8:00PM.
A MAD magazine contributor for 55 years-with work in more than 440 issues and counting!-iconic satiric cartoonist Al Jaffee has helped corrupt three generations of American adolescents with his ingenious and jaundiced humor. Now 89, the man who invented the magazine’s beloved “Fold-in” and provided countless “Snappy Answers to Stupid Questions” has rarely spoken about his own peculiar childhood-a story as off-kilter as anything he could have dreamed up for MAD.
In the authorized biography, Al Jaffee’s Mad Life, award-winning journalist Mary-Lou Weisman reconstructs Jaffee’s extraordinary life story with the help of more than 65 original 4-color illustrations drawn for the book by Jaffee himself.
Mary-Lou Weisman will interview Al Jaffee on the Strand Stage.
828 Broadway (at 12th St.), New York, NY 10003-4805
