There are many things in life that we can’t fix. However, due to circumstances beyond our control (like our parents having had one too many drinks on that Valentines Day nine months before we were born) we must try to fix them anyway.

Who is Funny Times?

Funny Times is the brainchild of husband and wife team Ray Lesser and Sue Wolpert. In the early days it was just the two of them, publishing out of their living room in Cleveland, Ohio.

Fast-forward 25 years and the paper has been blessed with unlikely success and more than 65,000 loyal subscribers. We’re still a family owned and operated enterprise, but now with a quirky, committed (and inordinately silly) staff.

Funny Times is 100% independent, not controlled by any corporation and doesn’t take money from sponsors. This makes us free to publish all our favorite crack-ups, geniuses and subversives.
