No one was safe when it came to National Lampoon’s jokes. The boundary-pushing, one-of-a-kind publication is the focus of Douglas Tirola’s documentary, “Drunk Stoned Brilliant Dead: The Story of National Lampoon.” 

The documentary covers the founding of the magazine by two Harvard graduates, its rise to fame, expansion to radio shows, albums and other mediums and its eventual demise. Through never-before seen interviews during the magazine’s prime and pictures from the magazine itself, Tirola paints a picture of the outrageous world of the magazine during its 28-year lifespan. It also features interviews with prominent names in comedy like Judd Apatow, Kevin Bacon, Chevy Chase, John Goodman and Bill Murray.

Check out the hilarious, NSFW trailer above.
