"This is an homage to two of my favorite artists. The great geniuses of MAD Magazine: Sergio Aragones and Al Jaffee. These two guys were thinkers, "imaginers," and writers and wonderful artists in the history of humor." - from Steve Brodner's introduction.
Here are 4 short videos about two of the seminal "Usual Gang of Idiots" from MAD Magazine: Al Jaffee and Sergio Aragones.
Steve Brodner hosts these segments, produced by Sundance, with direction by Gail Levin. These are worth watching, not only for the cartoonists themselves, but also to watch Brodner draw caricatures of some of these great MAD men.
