About the humor times:
Fitting enough for a publication aimed at tickling readers ‘funny bones, the Humor Times’ original launch date – originally titled the Comic Press News – was on April Fool’s Day 1991. The 27th anniversary edition will be out before the end of March.
The goal in 1991 was “to give weird relief to people who have scandals and politics as usual in the Sacramento region,” as editor James Israel put it. The purpose of the publication is “to use harsh political humor and fun editorial cartoons to help balance darkness and fate,” he said.
For people who consume the regular news about the standard outlets – newspapers, magazines, and their websites – or watch people talking about ginned topics on the subway – the magazine is a refreshing change: a disrespectful one, not trapped human, full review of the news and politics.
Yes, the Humor Times is a “newspaper” that you can’t take too seriously. She mocks both Democrats and Republicans, as well as news professionals and celebrities, and targets the “elite” to get them the right size. “Those in power are nothing more than victims of the incisive wit of draftsmen and satirical columnists,” says Israel, “and in this way it is a balance – and a desperately needed one at that.”
In addition to editorial cartoons, the publication includes columns of humor by Will Durst, Jim Hightower and others, a satirical news section The onionand – lest the magazine risk making readers feel too exhausted – lots of apolitical cartoons to lighten the mood.
The Humor Times’ current political humor may be harsh, but it’s clean and suitable for all ages – at least those old enough to care about what’s happening on the world stage.
And according to Israel, that’s a very large audience – and it’s growing every day. “Political satire is huge right now,” he says. “Look at the popularity of The daily show on Comedy Central, the spread of “fake news” sites on the internet, and the success of newspapers like The onion. ”
Now we are getting closer to him 24th year in press, the laughter still comes and die-hard fans can’t get enough as they anticipate the anniversary edition.
