You may not know the name Gahan Wilson, but there's a good chance you've seen his work. The cartoonist has been penning disturbing yet hilarious cartoons for decades that have ended up in places like the New Yorker and Playboy.

A new documentary, "Gahan Wilson: Born Dead, Still Weird", looks at the life and work of this lovely man with a very demented sense of humor. Host Alex Cohen talks with its director Steven Charles Jaffe.
