Monday MADness: Judd Apatow!

November 6th, 2017 | Posted in MAD Magazine

This is a two page spread I did for the book Inside MAD back in 2013. It was just for the book and never appeared in the magazine.

Inside MAD is a large book full of rarely seen reprints of MAD features as chosen by the Usual gang of Idiots, as well as essays by a number of famous entertainers about how MAD influenced their careers. The introduction of the book is written by the very successful comedy film writer, director and producer Judd Apatow. In his intro, he points out that MAD never has done a spoof of any of his movies or TV shows. So, thanks to the efforts of MAD scribe Desmond Devlin and TV/Film writer Paul Rust, we did this special two-pager entitled “A MAD Look Behind the Scenes at Apatow Studios”, in which I did about 50 or so caricatures of stars from Judd’s different films and TV shows. It’s ALMOST like having your work parodied in the magazine.

MAD has still not done a spoof of any or Judd’s films or shows. Just sayin’

The book is still available, BTW.

    But you’re right, Tom – he has now appeared in a MAD spoof 😀
