National Lampoon, May 1985, Celebrity Roast Issue


For some odd reason, the editors of National Lampoon decided to make fun of celebrities. I can't imagine why. It's not as if they've ever done anything worth noticing. In any event, Lance Contrucci, Larry Sloman, Peter Kleimna, Tony Kisch, Adam Kubert, Gerald Sussman, Marc Taffet, Andy Simmons, Michael Simmons, John Waters, Jeff Faria, Shary Flenniken, Gahan Wilson, Josh Alan Friedman, Drew Friedman, Buddy Hickerson, Steve Brodner, Gil Eisner, Charles Rodrigues, and Bill Griffith were all given good money to make fun of people way more famous than they are. Light-hearted cover illustration by that rascal Don Ivan Punchatz depicts some vaguely familiar black guy's hair on fire. If he were white he'd look a lot like Michael Jackson, but he's black, so it's anybody's guess. 82 pages. Evidence of sticker removal to bottom of front cover, crease to bottom left corner of back cover, moderate general wear.
