Joey Skaggs


Joey Skaggs, hailed as "The World's Greatest Hoaxer," created such internationally known pranks as The Cathouse for Dogs, The Celebrity Sperm Bank, Portofess, Cockroach Vitamin Pill, The Solomon Project, and The Fat Squad.

Using techniques that range from guerrilla theater and press conferences to the creation of elaborate websites, Skaggs holds up a mirror to society, showing how hype, hypocrisy, and disinformation is disseminated by the media to an unsuspecting and vulnerable public.

A prolific media satirist, Skaggs' commentaries on media literacy and efforts to foster independent thinking are provocative as well as entertaining. A lifelong educator, he has reached millions on a global scale.
