As the Yes Men, Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno's brand of "laughtivism" has kept them in the headlines for nearly two decades. They have made three feature films the most recent, The Yes Men Are Revolting, was released in the summer of 2015. Their online Action Switchboard website was also recently launched as a platform for participatory direct action. By injecting humor into serious subjects, they provoke laughter and debate from audiences.
