About the American Bystander
In October 2015, a bunch of genial weirdos came together to create The American Bystander, the first new national humor magazine in 30 years. We wanted to create a place for print humor in the 21st Century; in a dumbness-forward era, we wanted to present if not an antidote, at least an alternative. What the world needs now is therapy on a species-wide scale — but until then, there’s The American Bystander.
