Al Jaffee, cartoonist and creator of the Mad Magazine Fold-In, was interviewed recently by the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater. Jaffee's name might not be as well known, as, say, Alfred E. Neuman's, but you've doubtless seen one his his fold-ins, more than 500 of which have been featured in Mad.

Jaffee has been working for the magazine for 55 years and is the longest running contributor to the publication. Since 1964, only one issue of Mad Magazine has been published that does not include a contribution from Jaffee.

Jaffe has received accolades from others in his line of work, including New Yorker cartoonist Arnold Roth and legendary Peanuts creator Charles Schulz. Watch the artist talk about his work in the video below.
