Anyone who grew up loving Mad won’t want to miss this. Comic Arts Brooklyn hits Williamsburg this week — November 8-9 at Mt. Carmel church 11am to 7pm — and icon Al Jaffee will be speaking at The Wythe Hotel on Sunday:
Al Jaffee began his long and illustrious career in comics in 1941 with the “inferior man” feature for Quality Comics. He later joined his high-school pal Harvey Kurtzman at Mad Magazine in 1955, and went on to create hundreds of features for MAD, including the iconic “Mad Fold-In” and “Snappy Answers to Stupid Questions.” Now, at age 93, he has contributed to 480 issues of the magazine, more than any other mad artist.
Jaffee will be interviewed by Michael Kupperman, a cartoonist of whom Conan O’Brien said “this guy may have one of the best comedy brains on the planet.”
