Drunk Stoned Brilliant Dead: The Story of the National Lampoon2015 Comedy | Documentary
From the 1970s thru the 1990s, there was no hipper, no more outrageous comedy in print than The National Lampoon, the groundbreaking humor magazine that pushed the limits of taste and acceptability - and then pushed them even harder. Parodying everything from politics, religion, entertainment and the whole of American lifestyle, the Lampoon eventually went on to branch into successful radio shows, record albums, live stage revues and movies. Director Tirola tells the story of its rise and fall through fresh, candid interviews with its key staff, and illustrated with hundreds of outrageous images from the mag itself. The film gives fans of the Lampoon a unique inside look at a magazine that dared to think what no one was thinking, but wished they had.
