Legendary British satire, parody and humour mag. Viz prides itself on its aversion to deep political satire such as may be found in Private Eye, and instead revels in crude but amusing toilet humour.
Each monthly(-ish, its published ten times a year) issue features a combination of excellently politically incorrect cartoons and comics and parodies of popular celebrities, comedians and even a few swipes at the political classes. They are never afraid to take the easy route in looking for a few laughs, and shows off a wonderfully anarchical, incredibly British mix of puerile humour and bizarre oddity. Great mag, but as the cover says despite how it looks it’s not for the kiddies.

Surely you’ve heard of Viz? Pretty much everyone knows of this magazine, essentially the even more politically incorrect and wonderfully crude counter-part to Private Eye, sharing many of it’s stylistic tones, features and layouts. This is the magazine that features a righteous old Major who’s not afraid to tell a bunch of caravan salesmen that they should move on, being travellers and all. It brings you the Fat Slags, two obese women who love a bit of sex, and Sid the Sexist who is, well, you’ve guessed it…
You won’t find much subtle humour in Viz – the closest to that they get is in printing the Australian pricing upside down, to make it easier for the Aussies to read – but you will find a bellyful of laughs and the kind of humour that everyone finds funny, the humour of the people. Anyone who doesn’t find farting funny is probably so far stuck up themselves that they can see through their mouth and should be thoroughly ignored.
Viz prides itself on the fact that after reading a copy you will emerge none the wiser but having had more than a few laughs. Viz – it’s not big, it’s certainly not clever but it is damn funny. NB
