Inspired by Bruce, he went back to the stage, but as a stand-up comedian at popular clubs like the Village Gate.

He became friendly with Groucho Marx and famously got the comedian to take LSD, which he chronicled in a High Times cover story in 1981.

Krassner wrote and edited several other books, including “How a Satirical Editor Became a Yippie Conspirator in Ten Easy Years (1971),” “Confessions of a Raving, Unconfined Nut: Misadventures in the Counter-Culture” (1994), “Pot Stories for the Soul” (1999), “Psychedelic Trips for the Mind” (2001), “Magic Mushrooms and Other Highs” (2004) and “Who’s to Say What’s Obscene?” (2009).

Krassner co-founded the Youth International Party (YIPPIE), which he named, in 1967. The Yippies, based in New York, took a more humorous approach to politics, running a pig for president and attempting to levitate the White House. The other YIPPIE founders were Abbie and Anita Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Phil Ochs, Ed Sanders, Bob Fass, Stewart Albert, Nancy Kurshan and Keith Lampe.

'Game of Thrones' Author George R.R. Martin Calls Internet Fan Culture 'Toxic'

'Game of Thrones' Author George R.R. Martin Calls Internet Fan Culture 'Toxic' "Game of Thrones" and "A Song of Ice and Fire" author George R.R. Martin says internet fan culture is "toxic." In a wide-ranging, 90-minute interview on film critic Leonard Maltin's "Maltin on Movies" podcast, Martin discussed his nostalgia for the early days of fan culture, when he was publishing a fanzine on a typewriter. Both Maltin and Martin got their start in the world of fanzines, which they credit with helping them get in touch with other like-minded people in the pre-internet era. "Going all the way back then to my beginnings, I was a comic book fan," Martin said on the podcast, which Maltin co-hosts with his daughter, Jessie.

Krassner became a key figure in the counterculture of the 1960s as a member of Ken Kesey's Merry Krassner was a founder of the Youth International Party ( Yippies ) in 1967 and a member of Ken 2005 – One Hand Jerking: Reports From an Investigative Satirist , Foreword by Harry Shearer

Rubin attended Cincinnati's Walnut Hills High School, co -editing the school newspaper, The Chatterbox and graduating in 1956. Rubin was one of the founding members of the Youth International Party (YIP) or Yippies , along with social and political activist Abbie Hoffman and satirist Paul Krassner .[8]

The Yippies played a major role during the demonstrations in Chicago at the Democratic National Convention in 1968. Since he wasn’t arrested, Krassner was not a member of the notorious Chicago 8 (Hoffman and Rubin were) who were jailed and whose case went to trial in a Marx Brothers style court proceeding.

“I was lucky,” Krassner recalled in 2018. “There was a lot of cops and National Guard, and I remember they had bayonets. There was one guy with a bayonet who said, ‘Hey, where are you going?’ and I just kept walking away. I figured out, is he going to run with a bayonet after one individual? So, I sort of avoided it. I would go around the perimeter, taking notes. So, I didn’t get beaten.”

He was also associated with Ken Kesey’s Merry Pranksters.

Yippie member Aron Kay, who was known to throw pies in the faces of politicians in the ’70s, says Krassner “inspired many. His impact on us was similar to the Beatles. Without Paul, a lot of things wouldn’t have happened.”

Always ahead of his time, Krassner contributed articles to Cavalier, the forerunner to Playboy, beginning in 1964. About his experiences at the magazine, he recently wrote in Variety:

“I wrote some movie reviews for Cavalier. I always went to two screenings. The first one I would go stoned with magic mushrooms. The second one I took notes. However, I got fired by Cavalier.

“They declined to publish a particular column – my review of ‘MASH’ as though it were a Busby Berkeley musical called ‘Gook Killers of 1970’ – ostensibly on the grounds of bad taste, but I learned that three wholesalers had told the publisher they were pressured by the FBI and would refuse to distribute Cavalier if my name appeared in it. It was over for me, but it had been fun.”

Paul Krassner is survived by his wife and daughter.
