Born: 20th May 1946, El Centro, California, U.S.
Writer Dick DeBartolo and artist Angelo Torres looked like they were having a blast dismantling Cher's variety-show days with then-husband Sonny Bono in "The Funny and Glare Show," which originally ran in MAD #157 (March '73).
Cher never made it to the U.S. MAD's front cover but joined her fellow Witches of Eastwick, Susan Sarandon and Michelle Pfeiffer, for this German MAD cover. The film was parodied by Frank Jacobs and Mort Drucker as "The Wretches of Ecchflick" for U.S. MAD #276 (January '88).
Richard Williams captured Cher for the back-cover feature "MAD's All-Star Flopps," which wrapped up MAD #282 (October '88).
The "MAD's Video Reviews" series launched by writer Stan Hart and artist Sam Viviano in 1989 had two cracks at Cher's films over its three-year run. First up: Her Oscar-winning turn in 1988's Moonstruck, zinged in the series' first edition (MAD #289, September '89)...
...And the fourth round of Stan Hart's "Video Reviews" series, illustrated by Sam Viviano for MAD #304 (July '91), featured this swipe at the retro family comedy Mermaids. Viviano also slipped a nod to Mermaids in his art for Hart's 1992 parody of Hook, with Cher underwater in a mermaid tail alongside Splash's Darryl Hannah and The Little Mermaid's Ariel.
