"Before Stephen Colbert, there was Alan Abel" — Toronto Star
For more than 4 decades, Alan Abel has operated under a wide variety of names, championing a motley stew of causes such as clothing nude animals, the consumption of human hair, laws against public breast-feeding, euthanasia cruises, a school for Manhattan panhandlers. Every one of these was a hoax intended to fleece a gullible media and public that feasts on outrageous stories. "A loving portrait of an eccentric father."
