Joker was an American monthly magazine that was published from 1955 to 1971. The magazine was targeted towards a male audience and focused on humor and satire, featuring a mix of original writing and reprinted material.Image:joker-sample-cover

Joker was known for pushing boundaries with its content, often featuring off-color humor and satirical takes on current events. The magazine's editorial team sought to position Joker as a cutting-edge humor publication that catered to a young, hip readership.

The magazine's content included feature articles, interviews, cartoons, and comic strips. Many of the cartoonists and humorists featured in Joker went on to achieve broader success in television and film, including Woody Allen, Mel Brooks, and Lenny Bruce.

Joker's popularity declined in the late 1960s and early 1970s as the cultural landscape shifted and readers' tastes changed. The magazine ceased publication in 1971, but remains an important artifact of the countercultural era in American publishing history.{{Categories}}
