The Mad, Mad, Mad World of Al Jaffee!

Royal Flush is proud to present an evening with Al Jaffee.

Mr. Jaffee is most famously known for his time spent at Mad Magazine where he brought us the ever funny, always clever and the single greatest reason to go to the back of the magazine first, the Mad Magazine Fold-Ins.

Come here Al speak about the ins and outs of the business and what it was like to be part of Mad as well as the early years of Marvel along side comicland superstar, Stan Lee.

Presents: “The Mad, Mad, Mad World of Al Jaffee!”

About AL JAFFEE:
Raised in Savannah, Georgia, Lithuania, and the Bronx, AL JAFFEE (born in 1921) was in the first graduating class at New York’s High School of Music and Art. JAFFEE then worked as an editor, writer and artist for Stan Lee at Timely (later Marvel) Comics during the 1940s.

In 1955, JAFFEE joined “the Usual Gang of Idiots” at MAD MAGAZINE, where he’s been a mainstay ever since, entertaining generations with his “Snappy Answers to Stupid Questions” and “Mad Fold-Ins.” Join us as JAFFEE provides snappy answers to provocative questions about his art and life, including his new book, TALL TALES (Abrams).
