The National Lampoon and US Satire in the 70s

Ellin Stein

Now most associated with broad comedy films, the National Lampoon was originally a sharp, often coruscating, satirical magazine that captured the political and cultural transformations of the 1970s. As part of the British Library’s Comics exhibition programme, Ellin Stein, author of That’s Not Funny, That’s Sick: The National Lampoon and the Comedy Insurgents Who Captured the Mainstream, explores its huge influence on subsequent American comedy and its continuing relevance.

This event is co-sponsored by the Eccles Centre for American Studies at the British Library and the American Museum in Britain.
